The Antioch Chronicles: Remastered
What is this?
This is the first release of a StarCraft 2 remake of the seminal StarCraft custom campaign known as the Antioch Chronicles. This project is a high-fidelity reproduction of the original campaign with few enhancements taking advantage of the StarCraft 2 editor.
This version contains both episode 1 and 2 of the campaign. It uses the StarCraft: Mass Recall mod, which the creators were generous enough to allow us to use.
What is the Antioch Chronicles?
In 1998, not long after StarCraft was released, a mapmaker calling himself Auspex Turmalis (Ruben Moreno) released episode 1 of a custom campaign that he called The Antioch Chronicles. The campaign featured custom audio, perhaps most notable for how well Auspex reproduced the Protoss audio effects. Also impressive was the fact that Auspex recorded all of the character voices himself.
Episode 2 was released in 1999. For the second campaign, creative duties were split between Auspex and Zeus Legion (Eric Dieter), with additional voice support acting by Ytse-Jam (Juan Mantilla) and Macbeth (Eric Ladd). By the release of Episode 2, the Antioch Chronicles had gathered a large and active fan base.
Unfortunately, a promised Episode 3 was canceled. However, Team Antioch, with the support of the Original Creators, has released our own version, which you can download at https://www.sc2mapster.com/projects/thoughts-in-chaos . Still, the first two episodes did much to shape the early StarCraft modding community and remain in the popular conscious fifteen years later.

Create a "Maps" and "Mods" folder inside your main StarCraft II folder if they don't exist already. Newer downloads should already have the files packed into these folders, but in case older downloads don't do that, now you know what to do with the files.
Either way, put the "AntiochRemastered.SC2Mod" file into the "Mods" folder, and the "Antioch Remastered" folder into the "Maps" folder.
The newest version (v2.2) uses the Thoughts in Chaos modfile. You can find it here. (The zipfile still contains the old modfile, but it's unused in this version).
The v2.1 file includes the Antioch Remastered modfile, but still requires Mass Recall modfiles to be downloaded separately.
Here's a video that goes through the process of installing the campaign: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4UQIpZq7vA0
How to play:
Open the file "Antioch Campaign Launcher.SC2Map", which is located under "Maps->Antioch Remastered", in the editor.
Then, press the Test Document button (the StarCraft II logo at the top-right). Alternatively, use the shortcut Ctrl+F9 once the mapfile has finished loading in the editor.

This project wouldn't be possible without the generous support of Auspex Turmalis, the Star Craft: Mass Recall team, the Custom Campaign Initiative, Jayborino, and the entire SC2Mapster community. Thank you.
