Custom Campaign Initiative

Welcome to The Custom Campaign Initiative. The CCI is a centralization of authors, projects, fans, supporters and tools of campaigns that are intended to mimic the Blizzard single-player campaign format. If you are interested in becoming a part of the CCI or knowing more about it please click here.

There are a lot of campaigns available on the CCI. However, it takes a long time and a lot of willpower to complete a custom campaign. A lot of them are being worked on and are in need of feedback and support. Fortunately, we at the CCI have assembled a bunch of complete and ready to go campaigns for people coming here for the first time.

Please use the link below page to see the list and links of complete SC2 Custom Campaigns:

Playing a campaign still in the process of being made and providing feedback is incredibly helpful and motivating for content creators. Be a part of the creative process and make your mark on someone's project by helping out, it can be very rewarding!

    @Terhonator: Go

    That actually a great Idea. Yeah I'd probably do that.

    Updating mission 01 - 03.

    Do some terrain polishing or even redo the whole map from scratch.

    A friendly advice for all campaign mapmakers:

    Dont forget to update your first mission! I have noticed that in many campaigns later missions are better quality than the first one. We map mapmakers usually start our project and first mission is what we have created with least experience. Plan order of missions carefully. Dont place a mission that requires deep knowledge of campaign mechanics to first one. At some point it may be good idea to move original first mission to later position and recreate first mission.

    I think I may make a "5 Must Play User Made Campaigns" video. I've held off on something like this for awhile now because I didn't/still don't want to give any impression that I've ranked these in a way that could be discouraging to creators.

    With the big co-op hype now, this is a good time to try to draw in some folks with clickbait titles like that, haha.

    Visit my channel where I showcase custom content!

    Send me a PM or respond to my YouTube thread if you'd like to see your map/s on my channel (eventually!)

    I feel like we should do a compilation of everyone who made timelap videos of them terraining.

    Sup, Lucid asked for a camera oriented tutorial, kind of, so I did one. I don't know how good it is or what should be less expanded and what should be more expanded, but I think it's overall fine.

    Lol I love all the campaigns!! How could I have a top 10? I did a little of what Jay was talking about, hopefully he can finish it up. The colors are so bad!! Hopefully, we can experiment with the color scheme.

    Lucid_Iguana is working on a Mac Tutorial on installing custom campaigns.

    Like the new "How to support the Custom Campaign Initiative"? What should go in it??

    Probably get some more done tonight or tomorrow.

    I would be wary to rank campaigns. It can be demoralizing for some creators and also steer downloads to only the top few. Ultimately, I can see 3 or 4 categories:

    • Completed - Campaigns with a beginning and end actually released. The maps may still be actively worked on, like Hand of Humanity, but the campaign is still technically released
    • Actively in Development - Organized by which campaigns are best put together so Annihilation, Odyssey, Silent Scream (just for example) would go to the top of this list. It's important we steer people to these for testing and feedback.
    • Planning - campaigns with only 1 or 2 maps that may be stalled or slow going, private campaigns with idea threads with no files uploaded
    • Stale/Abandoned - we all know what this category is about, but that doesn't make the maps not worth playing

    Further, reducing the synopses would help make the lists appear more organized and concise. Lastly, I can add a showcase link to each campaign I have a playlist for. This is all on my to-do list, but anyone could do it if you think it's a good idea.
