Only a portion of them are updated. The majority are just 1:1 exports of the wc3 meshes. You will probably want to backport them anyways, because their particles are pretty dreadful.

This is pretty cool, but I'm curious as to what inspired this. Were they planning on making a digitally remastered version of WC3 or something?

Probably. Then they fired the one intern working on it, released all their "new" content and got praise for the 2-3 mappers left still making tech demos for the game.

Hopefully, ill be able to make them available in Micro and Tactics down the road.

Although, I heard the War3 data is only going to be released in like 2 months or something.

I was kind of hoping that the particles might be useful because, y'know, wc3 had decent particles for its time.

Hah. As if Blizzard did anything but blindly export 99% of this junk.

Some intern forgot to set a blending option to Add.

In some other cases they may have used alpha channels they didn't enable in sc2.
