I was never very good at starting off forum posts so I'll just begin. I am DarkKazoie, I've been playing RTS games as long as I can remember. From Age of Empires to Starcraft I've played and enjoyed this genre more than any other. In every RTS I've played I have always dabbled with mapping, creating a few finished maps (That I refuse to put up because they're really bad.) I have found the Mapster Forums to be quite helpful in learning the SC2 Editor aswell as many a great map to play. I intend to create a custom campaign and I am seeking ideas for custom units, expansion on certain aspects of the game (I.E. Infested Terran/Primal Zerg), and any other ideas you can offer.
I look forward to seeing what you can come up with. :D
About ideas its hard. Depends what race u like to play. If u love a race that its going to show in your campaign. Me personally i would love to see some primal action going.
There are many unused primal zerg units and buildings in the editor. Also i feel blizzard could have expended more on that story..... i even heard they scrapped a lot of ideas they planned for zurvan and co in an interview...
Infested campaign like stukov sounds interesting. U could make like a custom infested zerg/buildings...story about what happend to stukov after Lov...
Thanks for the reply! I have no experience at all with creating custom models and I have seen some amazing models on the Assests portion of this site. I especially like Hammer107 and Supernova134's works.
I enjoy all the races but my favorite has been the Protoss ever since the Starcraft 1, and by far has always been my best race.
I'm a huge lore nerd but I wanted to try to distance myself from the main SC2 story, so I can truly make it my own. Going so far as to try to make plausible reasons that the main cast of characters is absent. (Kerrigan was killed before deinfestation, and thus the Keystone never absorbed the energy to revive Amon, For example.) I enjoyed Broodwar's story a lot more than SC2's and much prefer the idea of mortal factions warring instead of fighting a god. I have toyed with ideas for what I could do with the more minor characters like Stukov and Dehaka, since if Kerrigan died before HOTS could happen then she never went to Zerus. (perhaps leaving the new Swarm leader to go there to get essence to evolve new Zerg Strains?)
