It is in the northern base, out of sight: you need to destroy the Refinery first. Another geyser is available in the lower left corner of the map, but it is not really needed and taking it is optional.

Very, very good campaign. Gorgeous maps, varied objectives, solid gameplay and an interesting story that perfectly blends with the established canon. I love how the story is faithful to the source material, for example in the 2nd level, with Epsilon Squadron effectively using science vessels. I also like how the computer uses dark templars in the 4th level, it's not something we have seen often in the original game outside of BW, simple yet clever. All in all it really feels like Blizzard made this campaign. Andrea's view of SC is clearly very nostalgic, and for every killjoy complaining about the editor used without giving any feedback, there's a long life fan like me who will enjoy being brought back to the days when SC was still young.

All maps were designed with loving care and a lot of attention to detail. Every doodad is carefully placed and the landscape looks very natural. It's amazing that these maps were made with the stock editor, given how randomly it works when it comes to terrain creation -- take a look at the small room at the top right-hand corner of the installation map: I can only imagine how much patience it required to get the right tiles on each of the four pillars.

The difficulty was perfectly balanced, at least for my taste, without being too easy nor frustratingly hard. The only downside is that there are only 6 levels to play, but quality over quantity. Now I can't wait to try Tales Of Halcion. Thank you Andrea for the enjoyable exprience and keep up the good work! :)

I guess I wasn't the only one who truly appreciates a custom campaign created with just the normal default map editor. The campaign gives off that authentic experience (maybe it's nostalgia) and it's something truly remarkable.

ALL MISSIONS

- The campaign has been rebranded as "Veteran Level"
- Auto-centering function for "End of Briefing" (mainly for those who have StarCraft Remastered).


MISSION 3 "DARK STALKERS"

- Fixed a bug that could prevent the position of the Healing Station from being shown on the map.
- Minimal changes to the map.
- The last transmission of Dr. Martens has been slightly changed.


MISSION 4 "PRODIGAL SON"

- Fixed a bug that, on some rare occasions, could break the cutscene in which Tassadar and Zeratul board the Shuttle.
- Protoss Reavers can no longer upgrade to 125 damage (this was not done by disabling the upgrade, but by modifying the Bonus value of the Scarabs)
- Sunken Colonies have +1 armor.
- New triggered attacks.
- The available resources have been slightly increased.


MISSION 5 "DIVIDE BY ZERO"

- The available resources have been slightly increased.


MISSION 6 "THE SKIES DARKEN"
