Better late than never...

Greetings everyone, if there's anyone, that is. xD

For some whom may recognize the nick, I've been around a couple of years ago on SC2Mapster, participating a bit and attempting to do a little bit of something for StarCraft II. However, I've long before (for 9-10 years tops) known and been familiarized with most basics of StarCraft modding, from .DAT edits, IceCC, graphic conversions to a minimum, and recently I've made a comeback to this scenario, venturing in Firegraft, basic AI scripts and with a bit of interest in GPTP itself.

For the reasons - While indeed, the SC2 mod scenery isn't what we once expected out of back in 2010, I admit I was still willing to invest, make at least SOMETHING out of it. But then an electric discharge put a total halt to all that, as the video card and processor were damaged, and attempts to acquire a new, able machine were halted by financial limitations. Ever since then I've been living with a frankenstein of a computer, with most old hardware and just some new ones cobbled together.

While at first I hesitated returning to SC scenery (Which was already too advanced, though now slowly fading away), I took notice of Pr0nogo's Hydra dev videos, which were the encouraging point for me to return. He could do it, so why shouldn't I? lol

That's when I started planning my return, with a semi-Total Conversion project in progress (Semi because if I could, I'd change the building aspects of the factions and possibly add new resources for costs), a couple of 'alternate-ish' campaigns focused more on AI than adding new units, as well as some graphic conversions from similar isometric RTS themselves (My targets, as of now, are Submarine Titans, Kingdom Under Fire: A War of Heroes, and vehicle/ship/building assets from SunAge).

Guess that does it for an introduction. Better get started, and upload my first file already, to show I'm not just talk.

/edit Yes, the attached image is related to the project, all handmade by yours truly.

Responsible for my own happiness? I can't even be responsible for my own breakfast

Welcome! Always happy to see more people working on modding projects and contributing resources. I look forward to seeing more about your projects.

With all the work that's been done on GPTP, DatExt, aise and all the other modern plugins the possibilities of SC modding have never been more open.

The SEN community is mostly active on Discord these days, so I hope you'll stop by and visit us there as well. :)



all i am is a contrary canary
but i'm crazy for you
i watched you cradling a tissue box
sneezing and sniffling, you were still a fox

Thanks bud, I might do that.

Ultraviolet -- Ya I heard that watching the vid, too. Was considering submitting Impossible Ultraviolet, but it's only technically playable with one person.. in practice playing with one person would be terrible
[05:52 pm]
MTiger156 -- Oh, the full rules for submissions only appear in the Discord server. "Single Player Only" is a big oof since I'm only good at multiplayer concepts. However I will inquire about trying a multiplayer PvE concept that can be fully played and won alone.
