Hello people,

I'm writing the script for my new mod, however, I want to know if certain things are possible.

I'm writing a protoss script.

- Is it possible for a protoss to build a tank using the gateway? Considering that I used DATEDIT to make the siege tank a protoss unit...

- The high templar can cast dark swarm and maelstrom... but how do I tell the computer to use those spells?

That's all!

Thanks!



None.

1 - Yes.

2 - Reverse engineering and custom code is the only way.



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.

Thanks Iskatu,

I managed to solve 1 by replacing the dark templar with the tank.

Now, regarding 2... where do I start? where do I look?

Thanks



None.

I have no clue, but Heinermann (who created BWAPI) might be able to tell you where to start. Of course, you'll need to have a firm grip on ASM and building plugins for Firegraft. Alternatively, if you are familiar with the languages supported by BWAPI you might be able to use that for single player somehow.

Mini Moose 2707 shouted: Dem0n Depends on the definition of "modding". Barring EUDs and whatever else there is to blur the lines, we have distinct definitions of what is mapping and what is modding ... but these are somewhat niche definitions for the SCBW content creation community.
idk, the definitions used for SC are pretty standard in all the custom content communities I've been involved in

d3 is a phone game visually
