    [3 HOUR VIDEO TUTORIAL] Porting Cata-MoP Maps to WoTLK/TBC For 2015

    This is for those that have wanted an indepth tutorial on how to write 010 scripts and converting Cata/MoP Maps to WoTLK and TBC, I say TBC because the ADT and WMO is pretty similar in terms of retroporting in TBC, the only difference is M2 files which aren't backwards compatible and would need to be ran through an LKtoBC converter and Newer ADT's use MH2O for their water while TBC uses MCLQ, so you won't have water to put it bluntly., Example here: https://youtu.be/5C5-aBCp_Wg

    Most people just want to learn how to convert WoD Maps but it is crucial to understand the process of converting easier maps before you try to take on the harder stuff, ADT's changed from 5.1.0 and up, Unless you understand how to take on maps from 4.0.3 to 5.0.5b, any hope of doing 5.1.0 to 6.1.0 and beyond will be near impossible by yourself.

    In this LONG Livestream/ Vlogstream/ and Tutorial, I explain and show how to convert Maps from version 5.0.5b and below to WoTLK 3.3.5a. I show and explain how to write 010 Editor scripts as well as basic concepts that are to be used when writing them and how to go about sorting the data so You only get what you need to make the maps work versus having a huge lump of data that contains excess and un-needed data.

    Thanks goes out to
    Stoneharry for always pushing my buttons but by doing so always pushing me to be a better and less lazier person than I would have been if he was like everyone else and simply gave me "good job" comments.
    Will for his converter even though he purposely gave us incorrect directions on how to use it. Though his source was taken down from bitbucket now.
    Mjollna for her m2 converter and information on how ADTs work.
    Shelldon for assisting me a year ago with the research on WMO conversion and what we can break to get them to load in wotlk.
    Gretchin for Allwater which lead me to accidentally figure out why New MH2O data didn't show up in WoTLK, though I couldn't replicate how I stumbled on it through the video, I still remember what triggered the understanding of how I figured out what was going on.
    ♥ And the people who put in definitions on the ADT and WMO entries over at http://www.pxr.dk/wowdev/wiki/index.php?title=ADT/v18 and http://www.pxr.dk/wowdev/wiki/index.php?title=WMO

    ♥ And a non community thanks goes out to the 010 Staff for providing loads of 010 Editor Scripts and Templates to view and learn from so I could make my own set of weaponry for continuing my research without wasting a whole lot of time.

    Thanks Faded for your approval :) , I hope this helps out someone eventually, it's not for the faint of heart given it's duration and to be able to master what's on other maps, simply copying what's on screen to a script without understanding the logic and concepts of the scripts themselves will lead to a whole lot of hair pulling XD.
