    I finally decided to jump on the bandwagon. Element TD will be coming to SC2!

    This won't be a new game. This will be an evolution of a proven concept. No stone will go unturned in harnessing the power of the new editor. I'm looking forward to doing things that couldn't be done in WC3.

    But...I can't do it alone. I'm putting together a team to make this a reality. Please see below and email me at admin@*****.com (eletd) if interested;

    Moved this to the editor forums, you might have better luck there.

    Aren't you rushing with this ? And, finding someone with experience with the SCII editor at the moment is almost impossible, since the actual game has been out for less then 48 hours.

    It's really similar to wc3, so it actually IS possible to find people with wc3 editor experience (and thus advantage in sc2 - yet not knowing most new functions).

    Dude, I keep contact with atleast 10 coders and just 2 of them are happy with the editor. The so called data editor is powerful, yes, but it has nothing to do what so ever with the warcraft 3 one. Nothing.

    Yup the learning curve is a bit steep that's for sure.

    >I keep contact with atleast 10 coders and just 2 of them are happy with the editor.
    Is it because the galaxy script can't be used with ease or because the gui is cumbersome to use?

    Hm, if you say so. I'm still waiting for my CD, but right now it seems to be far more awesome as wc3's world editor.

    Exactly, and you can't master it in 1 day :D

    >Is it because the galaxy script can't be used with ease or because the gui is cumbersome to use?
    Not sure, I am not a coder, but my guess is because the galaxy script is rather more complex.

    Soon I will make some shit map to test the editor possibilitis when someone with 0 experience uses it :DD

    Ofcourse, but it is a lot more complex then it too :pP

    well, I was too young to know what the wc3:roc b.net was like, but, imho I think that firstly everyone will playthe campaing. Then play some ladder (it is f*cking amazing, f*cking amazing, I highly recommend it to EVERYONE) and after that (a couple of months later) play custom maps.

    I am not trying to put you down or something, all I am saying is that it might be a good idea to stalk the comunity before starting a project. It might be unwise you spend valuable time into this project, while when you release it it won't be played that much because of the ladder.

    Still, this is just my oppinion.

    Good luck on your map. War3 version was fun as hell.

    My mind has been blown.

    Hi there, Karawasa!

    I've been playing your map up and until Starcraft II came out ;) Version 4.3 was really your crowning achievement.

    If you should be in need of help, especially coding (though I don't suppose you do, but anyway) feel free to ask.

    I'm looking forward to seeing this map. Any risky guesses on when a beta or a final version will be available?

    See you then!

    Yours,

    Ouguiya

    It's the TowerDefenseMultiplayer or w/e it's called. It has four players and the exact layout of your map. Same upgrade system (every 10 levels you get 1 gas). Different upgrades and towers, but otherwise exactly the same. Oh, and it has the same number of lives, difficulties, worth system etc.

    It has lava terrain.

    There will be a beta phase before we release to the public. As we get closer to that, I will start a general beta recruitment thread. However, if you have experience from WC3 then you may be recruited now.
