SC Expanded

SC Expanded adds variety to the standard melee maps. It was planned as a mod to be used with any melee map file. Players can select a few units, upgrades and abilities for each race, but the main feature is that players can affiliate to a faction (or brood, tribe), unlocking exclusive units, structures and abilities. It uses many units and abilities seen in SC2 campaign, but many more were created for this mod. Many "useless" units got a new role and are avaiable for players.

Protoss get less variety but its only because I borrowed many ideas from WoL and HotS.

    Amazing work! When I play with AI Proross as allies they all have a new look (basicaly a dark one with the chosen color). This look is wonderful. Sadly the human player keeps the standard look no matter the chosen tribe. By look I mean you gave all Protoss units the look of the map Novastar (black as basic color).

    I can't get that look. Is it due to the fact I had chosen in Starcraft II to get the bonus/altered Zealot and Pylons look ?

    AI Protoss units are suberb and mine are standard, sad, snif... ,-)

    I found the solution: put back in the reward section the standard Pylon and zealot (previously I used the alternate options). Then when launching the mod with Hybrid tribe I have the awesome look! Otherwise you keep the standard Starcraft II look for all your units.

    @Gooberryos: Go Hi, you can export all m3 files from the game editor. When checking them right click and select export.

    To import them to 3ds max you need a plugin you can find in the Assets section I guess.

    hey soul, your artwork is amazing, love what you do. I have a question though. do you know where i can get terran bunker m3 file, or you know if there is a way where i could find structures and units on my own and do all the work required to import them into, say, 3ds max? thanks

    @BlueXBirdIV: Go Thank you, I didn't know that was the cause of the bug, I'll try to fix all of them for the next online update.

    Yo, I noticed the custom buildings have a really annoying bug that took me ages to figure out once. If you go into the Model data in the Data Editor and change the Art: Selection Layer field to "2" for your custom building models, you'll be able to drag select units near those buildings properly. Right now if your selection includes a custom building you only select that building. I noticed this bug specifically on the custom Photon Cannon on the Star Station map.
