Hive Keeper by Bibendus

To all you fans of Dungeon Keeper, wait no more. If you remembered the concept demo done by redmarine, Bibendus has taken the work and develop the map. It's looking good so far. Take a look at some of his features in this development diary.

Xylophone by DrHu

Yes the Galaxy Editor is amazing. Check this xylophone synthesizer made by DrHu. The audio is recorded from his keyboard and imported to the map. Now I want a rock band game.. Or at least a piano :)

Next Convo in 20s Map

Next Convo in 20s Map by Rodrigo

Wondering what the new chat channels are like? Rodrigo decided to make a parody melee type map that shows us. It's just a melee map that mimics the behavior of the new chatrooms spam filters. In 20 seconds, you can only move units 3 times, build 3 constructions, train 3 units, and use 3 abilities. I think we can all agree those need to be fine tuned (since it is currently in testing and we understand that), but this'll give you a good laugh or two.

PTR Rollback Changes

Posted by progammer Dec 07, 2010 at 18:12 UTC

PTR Hiatus by Bashiok

The PTR server will be taken down to apply new changes based on our feedback. Keep testing

Quote from Bashiok:

We would like to thank everyone for their participation thus far in the first StarCraft 2 public test. We’re in the process of temporarily taking down the PTR in order to apply changes based on your feedback and testing.

Some of the changes we’re working on implementing:

Bunker build time reduction removed as previously noted

Fungal Growth’s terrestrial limitation has been removed and the ability once again affects air units

It will once again be possible to hold down a key to repeat a hotkey command

This down time is expected to start tomorrow at noon, 12:01 p.m. PST and last for approximately 2-3 days. Keep an eye on this forum for updates on when you can rejoin the Public Test Region and begin testing the newest changes.

Thanks for your help!

Happy Cataclysm Update:
Ackis posted further down about the release of Cataclysm, and I would like to add here on top where you people will see it, that if you buy the collector's edition of World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, you will recieve these fancy portraits: /Zarakk
