New to Galaxy Editor, Old to World Editor.

There's a map that my brother and I have been working on for a while now, but unfortunately what we want to achieve is not possible in Warcraft's engine. StarCraft II offers what we need, and as a bonus all of our friends play StarCraft II. My current friends show no interest in playing WarCraft III due to simple limitations like not being able to select the entire army beyond 12.

Anyways, I was wondering where I should start with making StarCraft II maps? I always like to look at other maps for references, but not only is that incredibly hard, but the whole UI of the Galaxy Editor makes me want to scream and run back to the World Editor. Any tips or advice? I would really appreciate it...Thanks guys.

O)FaRTy1billion[MM] -- not as big of a pain as updating the static arrays in SC's code, I imagine

FaRTy1billion shouted: Suicidal Insanity dat files are easy though :( datext just scales the file to the new number of dat entries, and then gets rid of silly things like restricting only certain IDs having certain properties (mostly to make it easier for scaling)
Well I have static arrays and consts for the lengths that are used in dozens of places, just a pain to update. And many dat files have like 3 or 4 different lengths that they use
