    A new mapping-related Q&A for starcraft came out. You can find it here.

    I presume you've all allready seen the other mapping Q&A's, but what do you think of this?

    1. Rather head-in-the-sand question.
    2. Rather head-in-the-sand question again, but a good answer this time: negative upgrades!
    3. Really head-in-the-sand question.
    4. Pleasing the GUI people, that part doesn't affect Jassers. Though an extended Object Editor should be interesting.
    5. About time.
    6. Eh, Warcraft III models wouldn't fit at all anyways.
    7. Another head-in-the-sand question.
    8. Another head-in-the-sand question.
    9. Another head-in-the-sand question, but the lobby thing is nice!

    So what? Everyone makes the occasional typo.

    Please don't stray into random off-topic chat.

    ''Given that we know the Roach regenerates faster than normal, will players be able to change the regeneration rates for Zerg units? (battle.net) DrakeClawfang''

    It's either that, or he can't be bothered to answer the more 'technical minded' questions :p

    It's because many/most of these people think that the StarCraft editor is still new-age.

    This site is a living proof of wc3 editor owns. Shame on them.

    Well I for one am happy to see that Blizzard at least is planning on supporting the SC editor as opposed to how they pretty much ignored the WC one (as far as I know)

    What do you mean? The WC2's editor didn't have trigger but SC's editor had it.
    The SC's editor sucked but they made huge improvements to the WC3's.
    The WC3 had lots of limits but they are going to fix that in SC2' Editor.
    They continue upgrading the editor with every game they release.

    He means actively support the editor, and he's right about that. I think all we got since TFT was UnitDamageTarget().
