In the old days back when I was an elementary student, 5th grade, I tried to guess real hard, how did they make Warcraft III maps? Soon after I found out the World Editor, then I started creating maps of my own. At first, I made small edits to melee maps and read online tutorials, FAQ's, guides and many more sources of knowledge about this nifty tool. I faced the trials, the hard work and enjoyed the fun of creating maps at the same time, as if the painter was illustrating his imaginations and ideas.
To me, the best thing about map-making is that, I'm a Filipino, Pinoy Ako! Well, there are only few pinoy kapamilyas who make Wc3 maps, and like our fellow South Koreans, we almost only excel at playing, trial and experimentation of games. It would be rather good to publicize these maps using a website so that my fellas will have something to play from time to time. The question is, how will I publicize these maps through designing a website?
I even made an attempt to create a website through HTML, even though my experience in HTML at that time was a little too inferior for the job. Soon after, I found out about Blogger, which hosts weblogs for online netsurfers. The reason why I like blogger is that you can make really significant alterations to your blog and even change the template of the blog. I then created the blog. The Modding Hub's origins are quite simple. But the term 'blog' puts some weight on its shoulders, so I have made a plan for this year to convert this blog into a full-scale website and a web portal at the same time. And so it began.
I gave it the name 'Modding Hub' because map-making is my specialty. I also have some experience in the modding of a few games like Dune 2000 and Starcraft mapmaking. Whatever experiences I need to share, or maps, mods and creations I need to exhibit, it's all within this single website. I have divided this website into a few significant sections in the field of modding (that includes map-making). Some sections for the exhibition of my projects, while some for news items, guides or informative text.
I hope that this website will aim the spotlight toward my creations, and will soon guide other people to help them find the right path.
