StarCraft: Interbellum Custom Campaign

Hello everyone,

Earlier this year, I took an interest in learning how to use StarEdit. I always wanted to make a Custom Campaign when the game originally launched back in the late '90's but I found the Editor too intimidating at that time.

Well, I'm finally doing it, and I'm creating a Custom Campaign entitled "Interbellum."

The Campaign is set between the events of Starcraft: Brood War and StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty, and the story will help bridge the gap between the two games and further explain certain story elements that weren't completely clear.

I'm releasing the Custom Campaign in three Mission Packs, each consisting of three Missions.

For those interested, the first Mission Pack is done and I've uploaded it here: http://www.staredit.net/sc1db/file/4061/

I hope you enjoy it!

Why can't you use SCMdraft?

Being my first Campaign, I wanted to learn and use the general first party editor, despite knowing that it has more limitations.

Thank you very much! I'll watch your upload sometime this weekend, and I'm glad you're enjoying my Custom Campaign!

I'm hoping to start Mission Pack 2 shortly, and if all goes well, release it by summer's end.

Hi all,

I've done some updates to Mission Pack 1 based on player feedback:

- Added a countdown timer for Kerrigan respawns in Mission 02.
- Added invisible walls to prevent unintended player progression in Mission 03.
- Added Triggers to reload each Mission upon Defeat.

The updated Map Pack has been uploaded and is available now.

I've also begun work on Mission Pack 2!

Have you also fixed the known issues? I downloaded it a while back but I was put off from playing it after reading that list; it gave me the impression you didn't care that much, if you were willing to release a map with an issue which you believe restarting the mission is an acceptable solution. :crazy:

If you have no clue how to fix them, and need assistance, that's what this site is here for!

Hi all,

I've re-uploaded Mission Pack 1 with Some additional minor updates, the first of which was player suggested:

- Kerrigan's Energy resets to 100% at a specific point in Mission 03 to ensure she can cast Ensnare without causing the player to wait for Energy.
- Various spelling and text formatting adjustments in all three Missions.

Mission Pack 1 can still be downloaded here: http://www.staredit.net/sc1db/file/4061/

Hello DarkenedFantasies,

I'm sorry you got that impression, I do indeed care about my Custom Campaign. To date I've fixed all the bugs and issues I've been able to, and I've updated the Pack a few times now with suggestions from various people who have played it.

Keep in mind this is my first ever Custom Campaign and I'm still learning the ins and outs of StarEdit.

I suspect though you're referring to the documented possible issues found in the readme file? If so, I'm assuming you mean the possible issue with the Mature Chrysalis specifically. On occasion when I was testing the map, this bug would occur. I made various adjustments and it seemed to stop this bug 99.9% of the time. It happened to me once after, but I could not reliably produce it or get it to occur again.

My tester never had it happen to him once, and DK uploaded his playthrough of the respective Mission on his YouTube Channel and it didn't occur for him at all. Not a single person has contacted me to tell me this bug has occurred for them.

I simply listed it in the readme because it does exist, as rare as it is, and I wanted to responsibly list any game-breaking issues that may occur for you, the player. I never intended that to scare you or anyone away, and note I specifically listed it as a "Possible/Intermittent" bug because that's exactly what it is; something that seems random and unlikely to occur.

If it does occur for you, I'd love to know and the conditions thereof so I can hopefully squash it better!

If you do choose to play my Mission Pack, I do hope you enjoy it!

Thanks!

Hello everyone,

Mission Pack 2 is now out!

Before I link to it, however, I wanted to let you all know that I started using ScmDraft 2 in addition to StarEdit, and I made some additional updates (and bug fixes) to Mission Pack 1. The full list of changes are:

- Replaced an AI Script with an Order Trigger for better consistency in Mission 03.
- Corrected the Probe Player colour bug.
- Adjusted the name of the "Uraj Crystals" to "Terrazine Canisters" in Mission 03.
- Changed Player 6 from Brown to Green colour.
- Removed the Credits (they will now appear in Mission 06 in Mission Pack 2).
- Mission 03 will now attempt to load Mission 04 upon completion.
- Adjusted various text formatting in conversations and Mission Objectives.
- Added an additional Mission Objectives Update in Mission 02 and Mission 03.
- Removed redundant Mini-Map Pings.
- Updated the Readme.txt file.

Mission Pack 1 can be downloaded here, and I would ask that you please re-download and update here: http://www.staredit.net/sc1db/file/4061/

I also updated the File Description, and removed the original screenshots and uploaded StarCraft: Remastered versions. Unless major bugs are found, I expect this to be the final release of Mission Pack 1.

And as I mentioned at the start of this post, Mission Pack 2 is out and and can be downloaded here: http://www.staredit.net/sc1db/file/4132/

I really hope you enjoy both Mission Packs, and I'm hard at work on Mission Pack 3, which will conclude StarCraft: Interbellum!

Hi all,

I've just released Mission Pack 3!

Like last time, I've re-released Mission Pack 2 so it will properly load into Mission Pack 3, and I've also made some minor bug fixes as well. The full list of changes to Mission Pack 2 are:

- Removed the player's ability to Warp In the Arbiter Tribunal in Mission 05.
- Adjusted the Locations of the enemy Area Towns so they function more traditionally in Mission 06.
- Removed the Credits (they will now appear in Mission 09e in Mission Pack 3).
- Mission 06 will now attempt to load Mission 07 upon completion.

For convenience's sake, since the Custom Campaign is now complete, I'll list all three Mission Packs' download locations:

Mission Pack 1: http://www.staredit.net/sc1db/file/4061/
Mission Pack 2: http://www.staredit.net/sc1db/file/4132/
Mission Pack 3: http://www.staredit.net/sc1db/file/4223/

Should any major bugs crop up, I'll of course do my best to address them.

I also want to thank you for playing my Custom Campaign, and I hope you enjoy it!

Juxtapose, I think you have some problem one of your maps from Pack 2 and 3. One of the maps from Pack 2 "Mission 6" and Pack 3 "Mission 7-9" which said "This scenario is intended for use with Starcraft expansion set." I already have the latest Starcraft Patch 1161. You might need to check those maps to solve this error.

They're using the remastered ramps so they won't work with 1161.




Oct 14 2018, 3:48 pm Juxtapose Post #16



@Rawflesh0615 Pr0nogo is correct. Beginning in Mission 06 and up, I began using the new ramps added in 1.21, so this version of the game is needed as stated in the description.

For any interested, I did a playthrough of my Campaign and uploaded it to YouTube. In it, I show all the secrets and Easter eggs I put in. The playlist can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLeysWJwy9eekpvxz-CbI67_Lv_u5YtHEj
