Custom Campaign Initiative

Welcome to The Custom Campaign Initiative. The CCI is a centralization of authors and projects that are intended to mimic the Blizzard single-player campaign format.

All campaign mission designers are welcome to become a part of this group and contribute, the only request is that you must have completed a mission of your own that is at least at a beta level of completeness. (i.e. not polished and perfect, but playable with minimal or no show stoppers)

All projects are the creations of their respected authors. PM Terhonator if you'd like to be listed or included with a link to your current project.

Please visit the individual campaign page for download and install instructions and more information regarding each campaign. The following is a brief description of each campaign to aid your browsing. WARNING! Some campaigns are Incomplete!

Ashes of Freedom by designerdougm
A complete adaptation of the original StarCraft 1 Terran campaign "Rebel Yell" into a StarCraft 2 experience. Not a strict port, the campaign has been designed with the intent of capturing the soul and feeling of the original game, while using Wings of Liberty's campaign as a benchmark for quality level design. As such, many levels will play out in a completely different way than they did in the original. There will also be the addition of new levels, as well as modifications to tech, units and the addition of new units.

Proditor Campaign by nimbusqwe
"The year 2500 is the year that made history as the year of the zerg invasion of the planet Aiur.

Crimson Moon by EivindL
"Crimson Moon" is a 10-mission campaign. It features high quality terrain, an engrossing storyline with a high amount of cut scenes, many memorable characters, and a varied set of mission scenarios. Mission objectives range from the familiar (bring a limited amount of units to a special location, destroy the enemy base, survival), to the more unique (stealth, investigation, puzzle solving). The storyline has its fair share of twist and turns, so not too much will be revealed.

Amber Sun by EivindL
"Amber Sunrise" is the follow-up to the "Crimson Moon" campaign. It continues the story over the course of 10 missions. Featuring high quality terrain, recurring characters, new characters and top-of-the-shelf story-telling, the campaign will take you to many places, including dead cities, shallow water grounds, heavily guarded installations, and perhaps even locations you might remember from the previous installment. The emphasis on gameplay originality is higher than ever, with little overlap between missions. Hopefully the maps will both challenge and entertain you.

Aureolin Eclipse by EivindL
The final chapter in my campaign trilogy, following "Crimson Moon" and "Amber Sun". Finish the story over 10 missions.

Doonken brings to us a simple campaign that should bring plenty of nostalgia for Starcraft I. Join Tosh's bounty hunters as they take on dangerous jobs, and hopefully get paid for them.

Regardless, he says he has a new purpose in mind ever since he landed on Aiur, and wants this new agent (a creation embodied in a Hydralisk) to be the one to carry out the Overmind's purpose. It is the reason for this Hydralisk's creation. Yet, the Overmind is destroyed before young Kheldrun was told his purpose, and now, he is left to himself. [1st Campaign registered on Mapster...2010]

Stukov - Man or Monster(Available on Arcade) by MaskedImpost
A mixture between the Blizzard maps, New Folsom (Tosh Mission, WOL). Infested (Space platform with lots of infested terrans, HoTS) and tug of war genre. Stukov is sent by Kerrigan to take out a Dominion Base (Taking place soon after Mengsk's death). Stukov can choose to infest the local civilians and use them against the Dominion, or he can choose to leave them in peace (Has an effect on the ending).

Plan H by MaskedImpost
This is a comedic map with voice acting and some of my favorite Starcraft songs (Void rays :D. See teaser video: ). There's not much in terms of gameplay, but its loaded with jokes, even at the start with the difficulty options (Easy and Hard are their own jokes and lead to a quick ending. Normal difficulty is longer with several branching possibilities). To start, Stukov finds himself with amnesia at an unknown Terran base. The Zerg attack soon afterwards. Not knowing what to do, they go look at the commander's backup plans labeled Plan A - Plan Z.

The Signal|by GnaReffotsirk
When a team of researchers disappears on a mysterious planet, Marcus Grant - leader of a highly sophisticated and elite mercenary faction, embarks on a mission that will change his life forever.

    Hi. Custom Campaign Initiative was marked as "inactive" for 2 or 3 days. No need to worry this happens only because CCI page has no files on "Files" section and project with no files are marked as "inactive" after some perioid. This project works only as link page and changes on linked projects are not updated as "updates" for this project.

    Hey guys has anyone thought of Remaking the old Antioch Chronicles maps? just a thought, not a map maker, but willing to Donate just to see them done, there to good not to be remade like Mass Recall maps, and i think it would also give the CCI more attention like Mass Recall did

    Hey Jay,

    I will PM you. We should be PMing as a group to promote more cohesion. Unfortunately, I'm such a newbie at this still that I feel totally unqualified for your video. However, Gradius, Dudki, Njordys and Evindl, Revolution Tehrnonator would be great folks to talk too and interview!! Your idea sounds really cool!!

    I'll try to send something out to our crew in the next day or two.

    Thanks for adding a link to my channel!

    I'm not sure who will end up seeing this, or which authors are even still active on the site, but I have an idea for a video/series. Would any mapmakers be interested in doing a one time podcast-type interview to discuss mapmaking for Starcraft over Skype? It could be from a technical perspective, your personal motivations/ideas, or really anything in any format. The only issue is that I am a spoiled American who only speaks English (the more time I spend involved with this community, the worse I feel about this!), so anyone who wants to try something like this with me would have to be comfortable with speaking at least somewhat understandable English. If there's a decent reception, it could be multi-part with multiple authors. This is something we could post on Reddit and to maybe get CCI more attention.

    We have really seen a renaissance of sorts in the mapmaking community this year and I think it may continue to grow as many are anticipating a LotV announcement at Blizzcon this year. I'm hopeful this will breathe more life into the Arcade scene and maybe Blizzard will give it some much-needed attention.

    PM or respond here if there's any interest.

    I created a list of pretty much every map/campaign since SC2 was released:

    A bit different than the CCI since it includes pretty much everything else, sorted by release date with some extra information. Will continue to update.

    All "Authors" of this project: Remember that you can update this CCI page so you can edit description or link to your own project page if needed by yourself.

    Hey folks,

    I'm trying to get new folks who are making custom campaigns to group up and test, learn, critique and push each other's campaigns along. The group would be open to all new, newish or just can't get the editor working for them modders. The end goal is to get a decent map or set of maps out for the larger Mapster community to play test and eventually get published onto the Arcade for all eternity.

    PM or post here if you are interested.

    PS. I've been working on my campaign for 3 PM me even if it is 3 months after the date of the post! :)

    Forum deleted, there was not any messages. Main page updated. I made own project pages for my two campaigns and deleted my own files from this page. I have asked Tyneara to do the same so we can use this page only as a link page to independent projects. I also deleted all images from "Images" section except logo.

    We should delete the CCI Forum link as it is inactive and a let down for those new to the page.
