I'm sorry to say, but the Zerg and Protoss episodes were very awful and I don't have anything positive to say about them. :(
If you want to read.

It's clear you're fresh in the map-making scene, and you're not experienced enough to have a real idea of how to make a quality map. You need to spend more time creating maps and experimenting with stuff before getting involved in a public release.

Experiment with every single thing available in the editor and see what they can do. Open other people's maps and look how they're made. A good way to learn something is to try copying other maps. Just please don't release those maps anywhere; they should be considered practice and nothing more. :P

But like I said before, don't try to become a good map maker overnight. It takes time. I've been making awful rubbish for a long time myself before something finally clicked in me and started to realize what I was doing, and learned from my failures. I'm sure we will all be happy to help you with your mapmaking, but a public release is probably not something for you to take on just yet. :ermm:

Psychic_Genius shouted: Hello all :D hey I have a question. How do you cloak a beacon so you just see how it glows? i remember it was disabling doodad state. But its not cloaking it.
doodad state is used to open/close installation doors. cloaking a beacon (or any unit) can be done with special EUD software such as T-Warp's editor http://www.staredit.net/topic/17518/ modify advanced properties to include "permanent cloak", and the structure of the beacon will be invisible (given that it isnt pre-placed and is owned by a non-shared vision player)

poiuy_qwert -- and for units, do they use their starEditPlacementBox for their size, or the unitSize? and I assume they are drawn in the same order as the units on the map?
[02:55 pm]
poiuy_qwert -- sooo, if both dims are <= 64 it renders 4 pixels per tile? which pixels from the tiles other then {7,6}? and if both dims are > 128 it does every other tile gets a pixel?

Suicidal Insanity -- FaRTy1billion
FaRTy1billion shouted: it was some other pixels for 64-sized maps
It actually uses 4 pixels for 64x64
