So I have decided to invest a little bit of my free time into melee maps and, wow, making melee maps has changed a LOT from sc1. Rest assured, I know about balance and everything so im good to go.
But I have a problem with symmetry. Is there some kind of option like there was in SC1 where I could get instant symmetry? Or do I have to invest the time into making the map 100% symmetrical? Please help.

Look at the last bullet point. Basically, make half your map and then select it all and flip it.

Also has a slightly different method.
And if you like videos,

Red classic.

I personally find Melee mapping extremely boring. There is very little in the way of what you can do that is unique, and everything just becomes a variation of a theme, on a different tile-set. Different expand locations, different destructible rock locations, different cliff patterns, different high yield locations, different island expansions etc... Very little creativity - but correct me if I'm wrong, I'd quite like to see some custom made melee maps that are good.

O)FaRTy1billion[MM] -- firegraft is for making mods for starcraft, if you're trying to do stuff like that for a single map then EUD Editor is probably what you are looking for

NudeRaider -- that's normal for modding tools. All it means is that your virus scanner hasn't seen the file often.
