Skin to bone, steel to rust, ash to ashes, dust to dust.
Looks cool, hopefully the name will be different on release ;0
I have mostly left SEN except for the Temple Siege 2 forum (hidden to most of you). I am available via PM still, and Skype as JackRCDF.
If it is important to you, you will find a way. Otherwise, you will find an excuse. -Unknown
Perhaps you shouldn't be on SEN as much, too...
Better than the iPad!

What do you think of these tooltips?
I am probably going to add colour to differentiate between the value and the attribute, for example:
Cooldown: 18 Seconds
Damage: 25 over 4 seconds
(but using White and Green maybe. We'll see.
What a caterpillar calls death a master calls a butterfly.
I'm good at coming up with names; give a small taste of the story/gameplay and i'll come up with a name and its free >:O

I've published a couple maps over on EU but they're nothing special, just sort of conceptual or time-waster fun type maps.
I have been working on this RPG since Starcraft 2 came out, gradually learning the editor as I go along. I'm now at a comfortable level where I can implement everything I want to, and do it competently so that the map works, looks good and plays nice.
The plan deviated about 3 months ago when I decided I would make this RPG a 'tutorial' map for people to learn SC2 Editing on (by releasing the map, then making tutorials on basically recreating systems and objects in the map). That was a failed idea.
Also, as stated in the OP, the original concept was gear based. But that is being overhauled and it is now skill-tree based.
I do have two other projects in the works too, but they won't be completed any time soon due to lack of knowledge and sheer work load involved.

So. I forgot about this thread - but have been working on the map solidly for the past month or so...
Except the map is corrupted now... Fucking annoying! I usually have incremental saves, eg. Map 0.01, 0.02, 0.03 for each major change, but I had been making a lot of progress in the data editor and foolishly only been hitting ctrl+s and not saving backups... The editor crashed when I was uploading a new model and when I tried to restart the editor it tells me that "Unable to open File (Your StarCraft II installation is corrupt. Would you like to run the Repair tool now?)"... Needless to say the repair did nothing except waste a couple hours of my time. I've filed a support thingy with Blizzard in the hopes that well... y'know "Blizzard do not support the editor" is a lie.
Ahli, Roy, anyone know anything about uncorrupting map filez?
Nothing yet! Almost done. Very powerful, very strong.
Is the file size ok?
Try opening the map as an mpq with programs like WinMPQ and try to export stuff.
Then you can try to import the data files into an old version of your map or into a new map file, if the files aren't corrupted.
I've never had a file corrupted due to the editor, but that's what I would try.
