Warcraft 1 custom missions
« on: May 21, 2019, 04:38:55 AM »
In the Age of Chaos (middle of 90th) there was an amateur Warcraft 1 map editor (author: BJ Pollard):

It has possibility to generate maps in *.sav format, which can be loaded as a regular save. Looks like this idea was a little bit popular, so Blizzard even added converter for Mac version to have possibility playing DOS saves on MacOS. A lot of sites with War1 maps are gone, but some of them are still alive or present in Wayback MAchine:
