The Doodad Picture Project

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

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.
