    Hello!
    I want to share this through Hiveworkshop.com. Hopefully no one minds.


    Installation
    Just unpack and place the main folder (the one in the archive) over StarCraft's maps folder.


    Description
    It mainly focuses on a Confederate Ghost but all three races are involved. Don't want to spoil anything more than: three protagonists, all linked.

    Offers:
    -36 missions.
    -not just build and attack game type but some sort of RPG elements and things in some levels must be thought out in order to win
    -original characters, side story & some lore twists and add-ons

    Needs:
    -voice acting and possible custom music
    -custom unit portraits & aspects (eg: user interface, skins, models)
    I don't know anything about patching and .mpq stuff

    !Skip (pressing ESC during) in-game transmissions and text message appearances at your own risk as you might not be informed of hints and story elements!

    Mandatory update! (see changelog in the first post under Update)

    So, I've replayed my campaign after four years and realized how bugged it actually was. I've no idea why I didn't realize this back then...
    The main issue was this:
    Brood War StarEdit Wait Trigger Problem (~solved)

    Will check it out.
    Too bad hive doesn't have a Starcraft 1 maps forum, I've been looking to share a couple of melees :p

    EDIT: Tried it out, the first mission is a bit bland and empty and even though I blew up all the command centres it didn't finish the mission. Also neither StarEdit, nor SCMdraft can open the map files so I can take a look at their triggers.
    I'd suggest making the first map smaller, with less command centres, but with more units and challenge. Also a dropship with medics (possibly delivered after destroying X command centres) can help with healing Button. Science vessels and tanks can also help with variety and challenge. Also the terrain is a bit bland, use more doodads and tile variations.

    EDIT2: after using vision cheat, I think I've found the problem: the enemies have rebuilt several of their command centres and the trigger (I assume) waits for them to have 0 command centres. Making their SCVs unable to build more should fix the problem.

    Woah, didn't realize you've edited (moreover tried it!) as the site doesn't notify edits! I'll have to check the bugs you're talking about. The SCVs in that level aren't supposed to be able to build anything.
    I've protected them, yes.
    Well, the trick is to be a covert-ops agent. That way you act as quickly as you can and only rely on energy that is regained after bombing a CC (I hope).
    For a first level, I wanted to not make it too unfriendly. The Science Vessel was used as a special unit/"hero", I'm afraid. It's not really a regular campaign. The editor has its limitations as opposed to that of The Frozen Throne's.
    I wanted to keep a desert feel for at least some parts of the map.
    Yes! They should not be doing that! I'll see if I forgot to check the disabling for CCs.

    Thanks for trying it out! You can just skip the first level as there are no transmissions after you destroy all enemy main buildings.

    I will have to give this a try sometime soon! 36 missions is a lot, so I'd like to test a few to see about doing a lengthy showcase.

    Of course. Overall, it's not the natural StarCraft experience in terms of gameplay design but it has that too. I hope at least most levels would be fun and not annoying (there are some of those; tried some experiments).
