Weekly Trigger Exercise #2

Posted by progammer Dec 18, 2010 at 03:38 UTC

Updates: StarCraft 2 is Now on Sale for $49.99 over the weekends.Grab a copy or refer a friend now if you haven't.

Weekly Trigger Exercise #2 Many Body, One Mind

Just as we have terrain and data exercise, sc2mapster now have the trigger exercise for all of you "trigger whore". Twinmold starts off with #2: Many Body, One Mind. Check out the spontaneous #1 here as well.

Weekly Trigger Exercise #2

This weeks trigger exercise is about creating a squad mechanic where the whole group of units behave as one entity. You can use any unit for the exercise from a classical marine squad to a swarm of scourge. While you can interpret the concept of a squad any way you wish I have listed a few possible features to help you get started.

  • The unit share any orders given.
  • The group goes into a specific shape whenever possible.
  • The whole unit shares a single health bar with units getting killed at specific intervals.
  • The squad fires at all units near a target unit.

Good luck! I am looking forward to seeing results!

Rocker Actor Tutorial by progammer

The Data Editor surely has a lot of potential we haven't explored all. Just with one simple rocker actor, you can easily make your unit "rolling" to battle, or just to make your marauder appear a little drunk. Visit the tutorials to learn out how.

Icehot Dance off by sandround

Just as I newsed the xylophone map last time, StarCraft 2 can do more than that. This is a dance party map in which you type unit name similar to Nexus Word Wars, but this time with dancing included :)

(War3) Legacy Melee Remake

(War3) Legacy Melee Remake

This contest is about melee gameplay! I'm sure you all remember the SC1 Legacy Remake Contest we held a few weeks ago... Given the amount of submissions and general interest, I thought it'd only be fair to have a Melee remake for all those War3 players out there as well. Again, Blizzard has said they would consider using our maps in the official Ladder, so why not take a shot at making a map worthy of pro gamers like Boxer and Huk?

What to do?

  • Recreate a War3 Melee Map as you see fit. The goal is to create a balanced SC2 melee map, but must be a replicate of the original map. So that means the map itself must be correct in terms of cliff and player placement, etc.
  • You can add in things like the Xel'Naga Watch Tower, etc from SC2, or change the amount of resources so things are balanced in terms of SC2.

The rest...

To view resources to be used in the contest, the deadlines, and the rewards, check the thread (where you can also place all submissions).
