Welcome to the community where modding your favorite game can be possible, and supported by a nice and warm community. Here you will find resources which will help you to develop your projects faster. Additionally you can show your projects and share with a growing community, even be part of the Blizzard Modding Network, which aims to gather all the projects and clans around this game.
Classic Games has been working hard on Warcraft III. The 1.28 patch didn’t hit all the marks we hold ourselves to. We’ve been making a lot of changes behind the scenes to make future work faster and more reliable.
So things are moving in the "right" direction.... hummm... ok
Patching and installation, CD keys, data migration, missing files from MPQs, usernames and file paths with UTF-8 characters, screen modes, order ID’s broke popular non-blizzard maps, and Mac specific issues were fallout from those improvements. We are working hard to address all the issues that you’ve brought to our attention. We appreciate your patience and involvement.
Patience, definitelyis what this community has built in all this years... no problem whatsoever
Improving these classic codebases comes with its share of hazards, and we’re glad to partner with you on the endeavor. The better you communicate needs, wants, or bugs for the game, the more effective we will be at building a better Warcraft III.
It seems that we have to keep in touch with them, and this is showing a real interest, or trusting, in the community creativity skills... isn't it?
As we move forward, there will be quality of life game improvements, editor updates, new map pools, balance tweaks, and more. The recent patch was an important step in paving the way for the bigger ticket items that you all want. Please continue to give us constructive feedback, let us know where we missed, and what you want us to do!

Then it's mandatory to keep sticky into Blizzard forums or probably on Hive so they can keep a real feedback from the WC3 community. We'll try to keep up to date this news from Blizzard.
What improvements could be added to the current game? Share with us your opinions.
Today I had (at last!!) time to put some work in an idea I've been working since the last year: a new domain, shorter and easy to remind to the community. The outcome is that Blizzardmodding.info will now redirect to its shortened version, blizzmod.info. Secondly, with this domain upgrade, I've updated the site to the latest version of SMF (2.0.14), which brings more security stability and improved performance with an actual and future support to HTTPS and PHP7.
All the settings have been done in terms to do a permanent redirect (301) to the new domain, and this means that your current bookmarks to your site will move into the correct site. Anyways, we recommend you to update your links to the new domain. If you find some pages not loading or any possible issue with this site, feel free to post them here.
This snippet is a replacement to the BJ function GetRandomSubGroup with the advantage of being able to directly enumerate random number of units in a group instead of creating another subgroup of an already existing group. Notice that this is not the same as GroupEnumUnitsInRangeCounted in which case the enumerated units are not random but is based on which units are picked first.
Useful system especially in making an MUI spell which uses timers. Instead of saving the spell data in a hashtable with the handleid of the timer as the parent key, you can just use normal arrays with the timerid as the index. This also allows you to pass custom data (integer) to timers.
Indexed timers (Array safe, 1-8190 but can also be customized to be 8190+) NEW
Timer custom data (integer) attachment [NEW]
Timer double free protection
Automatic timer replacement (Useful safety feature which automatically replaces timers belonging to this system with a timer of the same timerid and handleid when destroyed)
