21 Blizzard maps converted to 8.3

Recommended Posts

Hello Epsilon, recently I've been busy with an exploration movie going over some of the more interesting prototypes in WoW from 0.x to 10.0. A sizeable chunk of that had to be shot on Epsilon so with the help of a few friends I decided to convert the cut 8.0.1 island expeditions and other early maps to 8.3.0, here's a link to the full folder. Most are rough early iterations but a few are highly detailed and would likely be interesting not just for exploration but for RP too.

Note: these are not custom Noggit maps, these are simply ports from 8.0.1. For a way to convert from Wrath someone with technical and C# knowledge would need to update/fix this tool. Otherwise the tools I used are uploaded and documented here: ADT converter, WDT converter. Also for some reason sometimes Epsilon patcher doesn't always load custom map files on first log-in.

What a coincidence.

I saw this on the subreddit and thought "Yeah I know most of these, shame we can't get them..." and here you are.

You're amazing.
