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).

Advanced AI

Eagle AI by MTops

Fighting with the Insane AI might be tough because it cheated, but we would always be interested on challenging a fair and smarter AI. MTops worked for months on his melee AI and is showing the choke point detection function. I hope we can have an progamer-like AI soon :)
