What can i say....

So i during these past days,i was working on this melee map, modifying,adding new units and so, and i thought that it'd be nice to share it with you guys.

I haven't had the opportunity to play it yet versus someone, but i warn you that as it is now, you may find some unbalancing Hero abilities, or even perhaps Units that may have to "overpower" settings for a Melee map, so that's why i am making this thread,so i can get as much feedback as possible and improve this,since i personally like the idea of playing a customized melee map with New units,Buildings and New Heroes , and i will spend as much as time necessary to balance it so it can be nearly perfect for playing.

Alright,starting off...

Main Features of this Map :

-4 New Heroes

-5 New Units added to each Race

-1 New Building added to each Race

-Passive Lumber Mills and Gold Mines in the forest that can be captured to gain additional resource

All the modifications are made from the already existing resources made from Blizzard, besides the models of the:

Demon Tower - The new Undead Building, i found the model on Hiveworkshop and its Creator is HappyTauren.
Gaa'ni - The new Human Hero, i found the model on Hiveworkshop and its Creator is Ampharos_222.
Highteron - The new Undead Hero,i found the model on Hiveworkshop and its creator is MC ! .
Headhunter - The new Orc Hero,i found the model on Hiveworkshop and its creator is JokeMaster .
Shadowspirit - The new Night Elf Hero,i found the model on Hiveworkshop and its creator is Sellenisko .
Voodoo Aura - A model that i used for the Shadowy Shield ability buff of the new Night Elf hero,i found it on Hiveworkshop and its creator is JetFangInferno

Another NOTE: The terraining is also done by me,so it may look a bit sucky,but i did my best :( ,i am not much of a terrainer ,sorry. But will make improvements according to suggestions and recommendations you give to me :)
