Update 4 released

Map: Island Deluxe
Background story: an ecosystem barely touched yet by warfare, Island Deluxe is the name of an island group located in one of the outer planets in the galaxy. It is characterized by its rich resources, especially in the center. While the islands are officially owned by some rich human civilian, the man will think twice about trying to stop any armed to the teeth (and armed with teeth) outsiders. For now he will just rest in one of his many bunkers deep underground, save from all the terror above him and armed with his remote control & table-mate.

Starcraft Hybrids general information

This is a new take on the traditional Starcraft races. The three races have been replaced by three hybrid races. Includes AI variations to make playing against computer more interesting. Includes sounds/voices from Starcraft 1, except for the music but you can easily find the playlists of Starcraft 1 music on youtube (for the full experience ;D).

Important! Only choose between Human (/Bionic), Orc (/Infested) or Undead (/Void Predators) for both you and AI players. AI does not function as it should when it has its race as Night Elf (Warcraft 3 bug).

There are three playable races:
The Bionics - a combination of Terran and Protoss forces
The Infested - a merge between zergs and infested Terrans
The Void Predators - a merg between Zerg and Protoss


Features:
- Play with one of the three Hybrids races. Each race featuring an arsenal of new and unique units and structures.
- The focus is more on strategy than micro managment, like in Starcraft 1. Many abilities can be auto-cast or are passives, allowing you to focus on other important things. Also terrain bonuses. However there are still some units for you who like lots of micro management.
- The all new units and buildings enable entirely new defensive and offensive strategies.
- Many custom resources and Starcraft 1 sounds (even voices) have been used to give it that starcraft feeling, while staying under 8mb! So you can still play the map on battlenet and lan.


Not protected:
This map is not protected, you can modify, take things from it and hopefully learn from it. Do as you like.

      Gameplay

      [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

      "Another showcase of your starcraft hybrid map, although what gave this map some decent game mechanics is the AI, I really like how it was fluent in movement and how it worked out, but somehow some of the movement is very much weak when it comes to offense and defense, still the AI is good."

      Terrain

      [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

      "Terrain needs more brandishing, some of the doodads being placed there looks so blurry and not noticed, you could do more work on that the only thing that gives life here in the tile variation."

      Management

      [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

      "All is going well until the you end up finishing the game, well there is none after killing all of the player forces the game doesn't pause or show a victory dialog, I suggest you make a trigger for that, also the music for this game doesn't fit the starctaft verse at all try to import at least a science fiction theme."

    ^No it's not. He's making different terrains each time, since he can't combine them all in one map due to file limit.

    Yes UndeadImmortal got it right.

    , I suppose I can add a name of the map on the preview image. I want to keep the image a bit the same though so people recognize it as a series.

    It was meant on purpose, since Starcraft does not have any raise/low tools in those days, and also to avoid some combat confusion.

    Hotfix, fixed the victory conditions and defeat messages. Outdated or whatever it was, it should work now.


    @Orcnet, fixed the victory & defeat condition. But the following:

    , Orcnet you do know that mp3 songs are large in filesize? :croll: Not to be rude but you should know this as a map reviewer.

    @Twilight, thanks man! I will see if I can make the terrain a bit nicer, but it will stay mostly flat to avoid combat confusion as UndeadImmortal points out.

    I also have added names of each map to the preview images for each map (Hiveworkshop might still need some time to load them), but ingame it is already visible.
