I originally thought the HIVE was restricted to WarCraft stuff. Is there a place here to share StarCraft maps? Would it be ok if I shared one?

I have a .SCX and a couple of .PUDs I want to share. Should I put them in the same thread so people know they're all mine, or should I put them in different threads to sort them by game?

Why PUDs? Weren't those for Warcraft II? Wasn't .SCM for Original StarCraft?
Yes, make one thread with the StarCraft maps please. It's easier for everyone to follow.

.SCM was for Original StarCraft. .SCX was for Brood War. .PUD was for WarCraft II. I have a couple of .SCMs, but they were made to be downgraded versions of the .SCX map. But since the low rez version of Brood War is now free, who needs the downgraded versions anymore?

Um, why isn't it letting me attach the files here? I hit "Attach files", select them, then nothing shows when I hit "Save".

Make sure the maps are worth the upload though. Since there's no resource moderation for these, we wouldn't want a sort of file spam in forums.
From what I understand, those are just some maps with all the units, researches and buildings, more to test, than anything? That can be easily done by anyone and doesn't really bring something new or a creative gameplay experience if you ask me.
If you want to add a campaign or some custom scenario, that would be the way to go, IMO.

Oh, my map isn't for StarCraft II. It's for Brood War.
@Kclantern1984,
JC's Starcraft 1 Maps is how I did mine. I used 2 different sites, but also got permission to post them here.

I will add, I didn't get any feedback, so either my maps really suck, or people are just not interested. (or both)
I had a list of more ideas to make them, but the lack of interest got me to give up on finishing them.
