Former Wc3:WoW lead developer, I am a freelance artist/writer that enjoys modding and even indie game development. I've done a lot of volunteer work in assisting indie games such as concept art, story design, team management, public relations, and more. Unfortunately, I cannot offer much for free anymore. If you feel interested in having me work for your game, please contact me!

How about being more constructive with your criticism so the development team behind Dilogus can improve wherever necessary?

I personally think the big guy with the hammer looks disproportional. I know he's supposed to be a massive 'tank' type of guy, but his head doesn't fit his body right at all. The head is just way too small.

I like the other two though. :)

StarCraft 2 is extremely limited. And Blizzard Entertainment intended it to be that way. It's just like with WarCraft III: The Frozen Throne; you can mod it, but once they roll in the expansions for StarCraft, then the full potential of modding StarCraft 2 will be revealed.

There is much more content for modders in WarCraft III than with StarCraft 2. That's just one reason why I decided not to move forward with the new engine.

Completely understandable, as well as unfortunately disappointing. The modding community and player-base of WarCraft III is dying rapidly ever since StarCraft II's release, so lack of motivation and/or interest is understandable.

Hopefully things get sorted out eventually and the project recontinues. Otherwise, good luck with whatever else you approach.

Turns out the bags system won't work. In fact, I don't think we'll be able to allow players to view their inventory AND the environment at the same time. There's a lot of possible things that can go wrong with it, so we're just going to have to stick with an inventory that takes up the entire screen; a fullscreen inventory.

There's actually two tiles being used. A darker orange cracked earth tile and a lighter orange cracked earth tile. The lighter tile is used for roads and parts of mountains, while the darker covers just about the rest. I'm thinking about finding someone to retexture the tiles though to look more accurate to World of Warcraft and to look more differentiated, since I've received a lot of feedback regarding the repetitive look our tiles have at the moment. More small little details will be added, but I will not be adding newer details that you would not find in World of Warcraft.

Oh and those big walls are orange rocky walls in World of Warcraft, so I might redo that...

Can't. It's a part of the WarCraft III engine and the only way to recode it is if we use a third-party program, which would force anyone who wants to play the Wc3:WoW campaign without problems to run the same third-party program(s). RtC's third-party programs can make it possible, but we're trying to get as much progress done as possible without the use of third-party programs.
