The Doodad Picture Project

Posted by Mozared May 25, 2014 at 18:28 UTC

Doodad Picture Project by Scbroodsc2

In an on-going effort to make mapping in StarCraft 2 easier for all of us, a terraining asset has reared its head amidst all of the trigger and data libraries that are usually posted. User Scbroodsc2, otherwise known as 'Fenix', has started and finished a project in which he has taken screenshots of every single WoL and HotS doodad currently in the editor. What is the point of this, you may ask? Well, it's sort of a mental support tool for the active terrainer: busy making a terrain and forgot what that one doodad was called? Simply scroll through the pictures to find it and you'll have the name. Need some doodad inspiration to figure out what looks good in your map? The Doodad Picture Project has you covered.

Doodad Picture Project Example

The project page is linked above, and the discussion thread for the project can be found here.

Death TV

Posted by Sixen May 22, 2014 at 02:35 UTC

Death TV by DeadZergling

In the not so distant future, game-shows begin incorporating death into their weekly programming as a result of constant lobbying by the PAOP (People Against Over Population). Many greats started as a result of all this: Climb for Dollars, Senior Shoot-Out, and more... But none came even close to the carnage and popularity of Death TV. Death TV features technologically advanced gladiators against insane numbers and odds, at all times. PAOP claims no other game show has done more for citizen unity!

No other game show features bigger prizes, more carnage, or sheer insanity. The catch? You have to live to claim your prizes! So far, no one has done that yet... The next lucky contestant, is you!

Game Features:

  • Advanced Weaponry to quickly take down your foes:
    • Blaster (Basic Starter Gun)
    • Freeze Ray
    • Spread Rifle
    • Rocket Launcher
    • Railgun
    • Wurm Gun (Alien pez dispenser)
    • Nuke-O-Matic
    • D.E.A.T.H. Gun
  • Outrageous Power-ups to aid in your victory:
    • Cloaking Field
    • Force Field
    • Quint Damage
    • Gemini Fire Multiplier
    • Instant Enemy Exploder
    • Healing Packs (Lame but necessary)
  • WASD/Arrow Key movement system with mouse aiming, very similar to what was available in the original.
  • Many of the old enemies with new twists, and entirely new types of foes to take down.

The Thing - Arctic

Posted by Sixen May 17, 2014 at 02:18 UTC

The Thing - Arctic by ShadowDancer93

This game is a multiplayer game for up to 12 players based on the universe and events as seen in the movie The Thing (1982). Starcraft has seen many iterations of The Thing games, however this project combines all the good parts and brings the experience to a new level. The Thing is an organism that consumes the host and shapes its cells to imitate it. Players don't know which team members may already have been assimilated... In a game of paranoia, trust, lies, and screams, you must determine who the Thing is, and slay him, before he slays you, through various different means.

Go play the game:

Some key features:

  • Blood Tests that can be used on yourself or others to proof who is human and who isn't.
  • Infection system where players that get killed by a Thing become a Thing themselves.
  • Gain experience points and level up to improve your stats and unlock fun perks.
  • Team Killing penalty system to prevent griefing.
  • Customizable player characters, create your own class. You can create up to 5.
  • Items that spawn in crates and cabinets, get drunk on whiskey or eat canned food.
  • Barricades that allow players to create doors wherever they please.
  • Dark atmosphere in the icy environment of Antarctica.
  • Slowly freeze when you stay outdoors.
  • Failed imitations roam the map, forcing players to group up.
  • Players that die without infection can control the failed imitations and help The Thing.
  • Three rounds of gameplay per lobby.
  • Dogs

Kerbal Space Program, Curse.com Partner Together
For Updated Modding Community Website


Kerbal Spaceport will now be part of CurseForge modding community

Squad, the developers of the award-winning space agency sim game Kerbal Space Program, announced a partnership with Curse.com to partner on a new website for Kerbal Spaceport, the host site for the game’s popular modding community.

Starting today, modders will be welcomed to start updating and uploading their KSP game mods to http://kerbal.curseforge.com. The existing website, http://KerbalSpaceport.com, will remain open for modders to transfer their mods to the new site but will no longer be accepting new mods. Players will go to Curse.com to find Kerbal Space Program mods.

“Modders have helped make Kerbal Space Program a more open, more rewarding game experience for our players,” Squad chief operating officer Adrian Goya said. “Curse is an important partner because their team is passionate and experienced in caring for and growing online game communities, such as our amazing playerbase for Kerbal Space Program.”

"We've got a great platform and a tremendous team that will be supporting the amazing modders for Kerbal Space Program," said Bryan McLemore, Curse's Author Platform Evangelist. "We also expect the millions of gamers who frequent Curse every month to see Kerbal Space Program as a great addition to our existing community."

Kerbal Space Program recently won the 2013 Game Developers Choice Audience Award, which is voted online by gamers from all games nominated, including indie and AAA titles. KerbalSpaceport, the home for KSP mods, has more than 2,000 pieces of user-generated content to allow for players to customize their KSP experience. As part of CurseForge, modders will now have a bigger audience to share their mods and will have the opportunity to participate in ad-generated revenue sharing.
