I'm looking for some folks who are new to the Galaxy Editor and to map making in general, who would like to learn the ropes via a group effort.
The initial design project that I had in mind for this group would be Myth I and II style multiplayer maps from back in the day. If you are unfamiliar with the Myth series and it's multiplayer gamplay, The Myth Wikipedia page has a short synopsis. The short of it is this, no resources or unit building takes place, instead players get to choose what units they bring into the battle before the game starts (each unit is given a point value and the player has X number of points to utilize). There are a variety of possible win condition game styles such as "King of the Hill", "Body Count", "Free For All", among others.
A little bit about myself... Currently I have CompSci Bachelors and it's my goal to work on game programming to some degree. I have experience with a variety of languages, most notably C + +, but I've also taught myself LUA for programming WoW AddOns (you can check out my Curse Profile for what I've been working on), and I'm looking into resources for learning the Galaxy Editors scripting language. I also frequently post to a personal blog, 5h0cktr00px0rz.org, where I keep a journal of sorts of my game programming exploits. I've also have some project management experience through an indie record label I've been running since 1999 (http://zenapolae.com).
So if you are interested in game modding, map making, etc... and you think you may be interested in learning the Galaxy Editor in a "trial by fire" fashion with some other novices, please reply or drop me a PM.
I just want to say that I've gotten a few replies already (both from the sc2mapster community and the official Custom Maps forums at battle.net) and to thank everyone who has voiced an interest. At the moment I am sending interested folks my character name and ID so that we can chat in real time over some SC2 games using Ventrilo or Skype. So if you are interested, send me a PM and I'll get back to you with that info.
