Working on planning everything out still. Writing a design document first so that there's a distinct endpoint I'm attempting to reach, and its not ever expanding like twilight. Few more days of poking at it and it should be ready to move into actual map making.

I still think we should do a few more maps and see what not to do when making a map. IE 1,000,000 zerglings. 2 words "tall zergling".

Just play Storm of the Imperial Sanctum or w/e, it's a great lesson in what not to do in SC2 mapmaking.

Don't talk shit, those tall zerglings can attack air units.

Nope, various things screwing up my plans to work on it. Including a random desire to play dwarf fortress (which has more or less gone away at this point) and finding a baby squirrel I've been learning how to take care of.

That is still an update yak! Good luck with the squirrel, though I distinctly remember my grandpa shooting several dozen one summer to make squirrel gravy. Yum

School ended Thursday, currently still trying to get basic stuff working.

Update: This editor is the worst fucking peice of shit ever. I'm trying to do something simple. In WC3 it took a whole 3 seconds to do it. In this editor, it won't fucking work. Its doable, I know its doable, but its not at all obvious how the fuck to do it. Oh, what am I trying to do you ask? Just make a copy of a unit that's a different fucking name with a slightly larger model. I can make a new unit, ok. But then it doesn't associate it with the actor/model. Where do I add that association? FUCK IF I KNOW.

I understand someone with experience with this editor could probably do it in 3 seconds, but that's not the problem. The problem is the entire design is unnecessairly complex and completely unintuitive. And there is no reason for it to be so.

I'm sad by the lack of progress.

Easy solution - Use the HoN editor.

Doesn't seem a very suitable way to make a remake of Exodus.

Use the Unreal Development Kit?

Probably easier. I literally stopped playing SC2 cause my main interest was mapping, and the editor pissed me off far too much.

Also, bump. Any news?

So I decided to muck about on the editor again, did the terrain conversion for exodus again, and applied some very mediocre tweaks to it and got this. After expanding the map a bit it starts to resemble the scale war3 uses(although it would actually need to be expanded a lot more). I've also found that you can use the height tool combined with the pathing tool to essentially create your own pseudo cliff levels which work even if they are rather obnoxious.
