We're all dieing to use the new UI Module within the Heart of the Swarm Editor, however now there's really no reason to wait. SBeier's newest update to his Galaxy++ Editor includes generating code for a drag and drop-style UI design.

Mini Chop Farms by Taintedwisp

Mini Chop Farms is a Re-Make of the warcraft 2 classic, In this map your goal is to chop through the forest(while listening to the kickass war2 music) to reach your enemies bases, but beware chop too fast and you may not have the time to defend yourself, take too long and you will be rushed by mobile units or flying units.

Modeling Mondays by Corbo

Yes! Modeling Mondays! If you want to learn how to model/texture for SC2, you should definitely tune in. Experience is not required, as he will be starting with beginner level shows! If you want to show your support or leave any feedback or questions, head to his thread.

Purgatory Tech Demo by rpc190

This is the tech demo for a first person horror project, which looks really great... Kinda reminds me of the ol' 7th Hour/11th Guest games from back in the day, ;).

Map Creation Job! by LoneVandal


In the Terran Dominion there is one rising star that has surpassed all other televid programs, with a viewership of 32.3333% (repeating, of course) of all televid owning families empire wide, and growing fast. This show is none other than Crater of Carnage, a live feed of the bloodiest, most intense combat sport the Dominion has ever seen. The producers of the show were given their own moon from the emperor himself to provide you, the viewer, with the most spectacular smash-fest you can’t help but watch! Crater of Carnage showcases incredible battles between Terran mercenaries, Protoss prisoners, and terrible violent death incarnate: captured Zerg controlled via psi-collars from the Dominion's top imperial scientists, all fighting for YOUR entertainment! - Televid Today, a section of the Koprulu Times

The above fictional advertisement sets the stage for a style of game many of you are familiar with, but with a number of twists to make it much more approachable for new players while at the same time putting more emphasis on players fighting players, not farming creeps. LoneVandal is hiring individuals or teams from our community to help him create this game using the SC2 map editor. He is paying cash via Paypal both up front and on completion of the map, with bonuses for exceptional work to the positions listed in his thread.

How cool is that though? Getting paid to make maps, that's what Blizzard has in mind for the Map Marketplace, and that is what shall happen, :).

Trifaction by Bounty

Trifaction has been described as DotA meeting God Of War. In this action packed multiplayer experience, three factions battle it out to wipe out the other two factions Life Crystals. You may choose to rally nearby creep to follow you to form huge armies and take over the three contested points on the battlefield. At the same time, you may defeat the Tug of War boss to take control of him and strengthen your army that much more.
