MAP TYPE: .scx

Two teams of Heroes battle it out for supremacy on a deadly stretch of islands. Command a fierce Ninja, a deceptive Sniper, or a bizarre Mutant and wage war on your foes by commanding bases, hiring units, firing cannons, collecting powerups, teleporting, and more. The true test of skill in this map is measured in your ability to micro your small armies and split your limited resources with your team.


- Three Hero classes: Ninja, Sniper, or Mutant.
- Base-command gameplay: Capture and use bases to gain an advantage.
- Different base types: Bases offer different abilities, such as unit hiring, defensive structures, a targetable long-range cannon, warp links, and ore generators.
- Random powerups: Randomized powerups spawn in randomized locations, offering benefits from healing or bonus ore to inflicting a plague on your foes or peering into their vision.
- Kill horrific creatures for their sweet, sweet ore.
- Tense combat for up to six players!
- Lush, detailed terrain that rewards exploration!


This is the beta. I don't have many more big plans for the map, but will be tweaking and adding features for friendliness and variety. The focus of the map has always been on small skirmishes, so I'm deaf to suggestions like including huge masses of units, but I'm open to other suggestions -- especially balance. Feel free to play it in public games, and report any bugs to me. Once I feel like the core gameplay is done and squash any remaining bugs, I'll polish it up for release.

FUN BONUS: Mostly made in regular ol' Staredit, except for a few necessary tweaks.

SolarHound -- Hey if anyone can, I made a post about an error I get opening a SCBW map with SCMdraft 2, need any help.

Suicidal Insanity shouted: Since scmdraft used to not have any trigger editor besides plugins, and classic trigedit originally was a plugin, there is a lot of classic trigedit UI state in the trigger data holder. And I am now splitting all of that up into real UI and real data, to support multiple classic trigedit windows =)
oooh, multiple windows will be good
[06:42 am]
Lanthanide -- not sure how relevant that is now with SC being free and not using CD keys though
[06:42 am]
Lanthanide -- so that's why SI didn't want to give the code out

Jack shouted: Is scmdraft on github/ever going to be open source?
not on github and probably won't ever be. Starcraft strangely uses the player's CD key in order to create the in-game text. since scmdraft also uses the in-game text, there is code in there that harvests the cd key out of your SC install

Ahli shouted: NudeRaider I wonder if that landing attempt broke any regulations of flight safety... I'm torn between heroic and unnecessarily risky...
i dont think so. Windy landings like that are far more common than you think. Just youtube. There are a lot more scary looking things like that. Also on fucking 747s and those things weight tons unlike this aircraft
