    Music Galaxy - Fun Piano Map

    http://i1276.photobucket.com/albums/y480/queengambit227/Musicgalaxylogo_zps0cabee8b.png

    Music Galaxy is a proof of concept map; it simulates a piano keyboard. When the map initializes, 53 Engineer Bays are spawned and arranged like keys on a piano. Players simply left-click any Engineer Bay and a note will play. All 53 piano sound clips were digitally recorded and imported onto the map (thank you DrHu). Up to 6 players can play together. The map is published on ALL battle.net regions. The video below is a live demonstration of Music Galaxy. Can you guess each song played in the video?

    Note: each video may have some same songs.

    Awsome! I have been waiting for something like this to happen. Some drums would be cool to and soon you would have a band!

    And you HAVE to make a choir! A triracial choir that sings ahhs and dhooos and Brhlooorghs!

    Just throwing some ideas after watching the videos... It would be nice to have some kind of a metronome, to make sure people keep in rhythm. Of course it could be a problem with the lag, but overall it should help keeping in sync with other people. I guess only the host should have access to this function, like a tiny window displaying BPMs, allowing to set them higher or lower, and mute/unmute it. There should be something on the UI as well to let everyone know when the tick is going to happen.

    Maybe you should also allow players to use their actual keyboard to play tunes, instead of mouse clicks on units. There is a problem (again) because layouts differ from a country to another, but maybe it can be fixed by allowing players to pick their layout in the lobby (if the setting is not set to default for someone, just apply the differences instead of applying an entire preset each time). It will be easier to play fast tunes if you remove the risk of missing your clicks.

    Thank you Zeldarules for showcasing my map on the front page.

    My intention was to have different instruments and have everyone play together :) but alas, the WASD pressing has a certain lag time on SC2.

    Yup, the lag doesn't help a bit. I tried having it but its not precise.

    Actually, you can use the keyboard! :)

    I found an extension video of my Music Galaxy map. This 2nd video is on the top. It has some of the same songs and some unheard of songs. I removed the answers so you can play again!
