question, are there any mods that purely expand on the features of vanilla brood war? for example making the game 12+ players, removing firelag or other now arbitrary terrain/unit/sprite/location limits, etc

i'm impressed by what the koreans accomplished with wlauncher and their private fish server and always wondered if an equally well distributed, network-functional mod could add to that

maybe i don't understand the obstacles involved

There was a limit expander that IskatuMesk used for his Armageddon Onslaught mod, but I believe it was only functional for a specific version of Brood War (1.10).

It also had a bunch of unexpected problems because changing the limits for things is really complicated and involved. All the limits are extremely hardcoded, so you have to find every reference to them as well.

I'm not sure how difficult that would be at this point with Hercanic's work on his analysis of SCBW.

Suicidal Insanity -- On game start you could detect who is at which start location, store that in switches / dcs, and use that to permanently force alliances. Lots of combinations though

MTiger156 -- That 2v2v2v2 mapping problem does sound like an interesting challenge. Its worth putting some experimentation into. I could make an example map for combining locked alliances (based on lobby forces) + random start location. Though an EUD solution would be the most efficient, I will avoid that for the sake of simplicity.

well, that's the gist of sc mapping. Either accept the limits sc sets for you and work within those parameters, or get creative and find complicated solutions to achieve what you want. The latter can be most satisfying. Sometimes comprised are inevitable though. Also see my respnse in the thread.
