Farmlings - Lings of Liberty by Farmlings

"Gotta make some more watering drones, need my plants to last longer. And milk the cows of course, yes. Ah crap, forgot to train watch dogs, and now my enemy used his baby infestors to infest my plants. Oh well, glad I have that Bio-Nuke handy, not to mention Zergling Munchies and the Babylisk Playground techs."
Believe it or not, you might actually say these things one day, and I for one cannot wait. Farmlings is on the way (currently in early stages of development).

Out of Bounds Contest

Posted by Sixen Nov 09, 2010 at 00:53 UTC
We have just added a Broken Maps category for users who are experiencing issues with their maps and believe the source of the problem to be within the Galaxy Editor itself. If you find yourself in this situation, upload your map to the Broken Maps category. This will make things easier for us to push your maps over to the guys at Blizzard that can actually get these problems fixed. Your files will still remain private, as only the SC2Mapster Moderators and Blizzard will touch them. Thanks!

Out of Bounds Contest

Something we have noticed is that there is a lack of Bound/Obstacle maps on Battle.net these days... (So yes, Battle.net is out of bounds! *drumroll*) For those of you who were around during the days of SC1, Bounds ruled the Customs list. If you can remember, we have also had a Minigame Contest before. However it was generic and this time we want to focus on specifically making Bounds and Obstacles.

What to do?

You are making a portion of an obstacle course/bound. Feel free to make an entire map out of it, but each submission should only be one obstacle. You allowed to create any kind of obstacle you want... A maze, explosions, dodge units, anything you can think of in terms of being challenged in the form of an obstacle is fair game. Remember, the more creative, the better!

What you have to give

  • You have to provide a youtube video of one obstacle. If you can't record, post the map and ask, someone will help you recording it :)
  • If you want to have multiple obstacles, just submit multiple videos. It'll make things easier for judging if we keep it to one obstacle per submission.
  • If you want to have a music background, you can import and play it in the map, but it is recommended to add it in the video.
  • You have to attach the map used to take the video

Deadlines

You have 10 days to complete this contest.

  • End of the submissions: Wednesday, November 17th - Midnight PDT (Los Angeles) [Thursday, November 18th - 9 AM GMT (Paris)]
  • A public vote will be held after the end of the submissions to decide who wins.

Reward

The main goal of the contest is to further community development within GalaxyEdit. The rewards can be see as follows:

  • First: 1-year Curse Premium
  • Second: 6-month Curse Premium
  • Third: 3-month Curse Premium
  • Everyone else: 1-month Curse Premium

Aerials, HGMA Defense 2

Posted by Acemore Nov 09, 2010 at 00:36 UTC

Aerials by Creation

Creation released a cool trailer of Aerials, a 4 player 3rd person shooter map currently published in the US. You assume control of either a Loki Battlecruiser, Merc Goliaths or Merc Vikings! I don't know about you, but he had me at Loki Battlecruiser.

HGMA Defense 2 by PatchOne

HGMA Defense was a popular map back in Broodwar. Now it lives again in StarCraft II thanks to PatchOne. It is a cooperative unit/hero defense map for 2 - 7 players. So bring your friends and see if you got the skills to keep those waves at bay! The map is published both in EU and the US. :)

WTE #12 - Under da Sea

Catching up on the Weekly Terraining Excersises, we take a closer look at round #12 for some stunning visuals depicting life under the sea. The terrain our members keep punching out week after week is nothing short of amazing, and this week is no exception!

Now where's my damn scuba gear?

Healing Fountain Tutorial by OneTwoSC

Remember those Healing Fountains from Warcraft 3? While making such a fountain in the SC2 Editor sounds easy in concept, figuring out how to do so might not be. However, OneTwoSC has made an excellent video tutorial showing how to create one. So if you're making a DotA style map, or anything which would require a place to restore health (or whatever you'd like really), you're going to want to check out this tutorial! :)

Talent System by ArcaneRenegade

If you'd like to have an awesome looking talent tree system in your map, but don't know exactly how to make one, the solution is right here! ArcaneRenegade has done some impressive work on a great Talent System which is fully customizable. It has 3 different color schemes, the ability to use prerequisites and more! He's included a tutorial on how to implement it in your map. Be sure to credit him for his work if you use it. :) Check out the video to see it in action!
