Some content I made for Sc2 art tools in the past.

A very short video I made for someone on a stillborn throwaway website known as Mapster to demonstrate the bare minimum work for putting a model into sc2 that functions.



This is a more extensive video that discusses the Art Tools and making and configuring models in 3ds max for sc2.

I released some particle effects for Starcraft 2 in the past, located here > http://www.gameproc.com/index.php?id=starcraft2-resources

I plan to produce an indepth video regarding porting assets to Starcraft 2 including making normal maps in the future.

/e

This video is a part of my edu series and discusses Particle Systems, using Starcraft 2 as a starting point.

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.

Ahli -- beacons are unclickable when disabled. To make the beacon's non-light areas appear as cloaked, simply gain vision with them via a detector for a brief moment, e.g. at map start

jjf28 -- many units can be cloaked with the disable-disable-enable trick, dunno if beacon is one of them

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
