Howdy all, Laconius from here! I just wanted to give you guys a holler about the video contest that's going over at and how my entry miraculously made the cut into their favorites. You can find the page here:

However, I didn't come here to ask for votes or anything like that. I figured that if Blizzard enjoyed my video, the rest of the SC community would get a kick out of it as well. This was basically my attempt to show Blizzard that SC1 isn't going to have the spotlight stolen from it, being the masterpiece that it is, even with all their new games like D3 and SC2: HotS over the horizon. Anyhow, I hope you guys enjoy the video; it's the one featuring nothing but SC1 footage lol :D

<3 Laconius, if you haven't played VE yet, it's time to do so.

Show them your butt, and when you do, slap it so it creates a sound akin to a chorus of screaming spider monkeys flogging a chime with cacti. Only then can you find your destiny at the tip of the shaft.

We can't explain the universe, just describe it; and we don't know whether our theories are true, we just know they're not wrong. >Harald Lesch

Suicidal Insanity -- Oh_Man
Oh_Man shouted: Couldn't you redefine all the tiles from the other tilesets to be read as part of just one tileset instead of multiple perhaps
In SC:R - yes you can. In normal SC: no, cause many tilesets use colors unavailable in others

NudeRaider -- You are undead, why wouldn't you and your creations (GPTP) exist as (in) graves? I don't get why this needs fixing.
[01:58 pm]
UndeadStar -- I don't know in how many people imagination me and/or my GPTP existed as graves, but this will finally be fixed now that I've made the online code available

NudeRaider -- I can't say but it sounds plausible. You'd still have the problem with the palette.
[10:25 am]
Oh_Man -- it's not like the pixels themselves are inherit to one tileset or another.

NudeRaider -- *make new tiles
[10:15 am]
NudeRaider -- The map structure only ever recognizes one tileset at a time. So you'd have to define your own map format then make an .exe that can load such files. I don't think it's ever been done; it sounds like a lot of work. What's commonly done with modding is creating a new tileset. Then you decide which tiles go in there. You can also make new ones. You will probably also have to create a new palette as the different tilesets share only part of their colors. Finally entering speculation territory you could maybe use EUDs to dynamically change the graphics of certain tiles. Not sure if it's possible, but if it is, you better make a topic for it.

O)FaRTy1billion[MM] -- no, that's not a thing you can do without modding the game
[03:56 am]
youarenotworthy -- I forget, did starforge ever allow you to mix tilesets?
