Some Basic Facts on Editor

Battlemapsta

I am the Conduit of Change
I'm not in the beta but I managed to get the editor to work on my computer (nothing illegal) so I'll input some observations into this thread to inform people who may not have the chance to look at the new editor. (And imo, this editor so far looks amazing)

1. Support for 14 players
2. Alpha Blending for terrain as well as other neat tools to terrain smoothly.
3. New water system. I'm not sure how this works yet because it looks wierd but when u add to the map, it's like a square tile of the water. You can edit the properties and texture of the water so I'll have to investigate that further.
4. Support for road pathing or in other words, a tool that lets u create roads out of connected segments.
5. More actions, conditions, and events in terms of triggers.
6. A new section for viewing what I believe to be models which allows you to play animation and record video.
7. A separate section for cinematics. (there are only a few cinematic actions when you look over the trigger section so this section is most likely very in depth for cinematic makers and should be a lot cleaner and organized to make cinematics.
8. As of right now, no ai section, however there are quite a few ai actions available for when you're making triggers.
9. An advanced lightning system that I was hoping to see in a while allowing for very great terrain to be made.

These are only a couple findings, much and i mean much is left to be uncovered in this editor. For people curious, here are some images.

1. The terrain menu (The map itself is a result of me messing around with the lighting and terrain.)

2. The water menu. (With a simple water mound in the map)

3. Lighting Menu (All the tabs are associated with lighting)

4. Unit tab with player amount displayed.

5. Animation Viewer shown:

6. Picture showing different things. Camera angle, lighting, cliffs, new point menu, and a region to the right.

Expect more discoveries and pictures from me and everyone else in the SC2 community.

(Evol)ution is nothing without love.
Pressing Print Screen in Terrain view will screenshot the terran view only, not the actual editor, or your screen. o.o

The previewer can also play animations, you can add multiple models, which are called actors, You can specify effects, player colours, even custom player colours.

    You need to buy a laptop that supports external GPUs for this.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I'm pretty lucky to get myself an Alienware 15 with RTX 2070.
  • Varine Varine:
    I think I'm moving back up north for the summer, I got offered my job as the tournant chef back and I'm tired of struggling down here, it pays like twice as much too
  • Varine Varine:
    I think imma give four or five weeks of notice today to my boss, and see how much that backfires on me. I know he's struggling to hire anyone though, so it's like, do a couple weeks of interviews with me and then we'll have two or three weeks to train someone to take over for me. Hopefully he doesn't fucking let me go in like two weeks cuz that would really fuck me up right now
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Wouldn't it be better if you give 3 to 4 weeks of notice? So that, at least you are guaranteed for 1 more week of paycheck to hold you over?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    By the way, where are you moving to?
  • Varine Varine:
    Back to Idaho for the summer, then maybe Houston in August or so, my girlfriend or whatever we are loved it there
  • Varine Varine:
    I'm not sure yet, but my parents need some help cuz they're getting older and my mom has MS so can't do much anymore, so I'll be able to get their property fixed up so they can sell their other house. And the resort is stoked to have me back for the summer, cuz they always struggle with staff.
  • Varine Varine:
    I think it'll be alright, even if they cut me loose a bit early I do have some money and I know plenty of people that will lend me the few hundred bucks to get up there. I'm just catching up after last year still, if I have to kite some bills for a couple weeks it'll be fine.
  • Varine Varine:
    I hate my job but I do like one of my bosses, he does try really hard to get me what I need, and I want to make sure I leave with them comfortable with a new manager
  • Varine Varine:
    I like my coworkers for the most part too as much as I bitch about them, they just aren't reliable. As kids tend to be, I was a shithead at 19 and 20 too I'm sure, so
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Good luck on getting things going.
  • Varine Varine:
    Eh, it'll be fine, I got it mostly planned out already. Roommates know, boss will know in about an hour when I go to work, I'll have a plane booked once we decide my last day, and I have a place to stay up there lined up for two or three months
  • Varine Varine:
    That all came together surprisingly easily
  • Varine Varine:
    I think I'm going to give 4 weeks, so that'll give me 2 more full checks probably, and then one more coming after I leave.
    +1
  • Varine Varine:
    All that shit came together really well suprisingly. My boss was upset cuz I am really good at my job suprisingly, but he's stoked that he got 4 weeks, plus one or two if he needs it, my flight's book in mid June, but I start my new job almost immediately so it'll be nice to have some time to chill and pack and get my rooms cleaned out. He actually gave me a dollar raise right after I gave notice to thank me for not being short or just leaving and making sure I can help interview and train someone to replace me. He is really cool, his food truck has just been a nightmare to run. I get my vaccine next week finally, allegedly Idaho will let me have my license back when I get there, and I have all my bills up to date so it should be an easy move this time around.
  • Varine Varine:
    Is anyone else getting server timeouts in the chat? I think it's on my end, my wifi adapter has been acting up recently
  • Varine Varine:
    100% my end, idk what it is though.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Just woke up. No idea.
  • jonas jonas:
    sounds great :) have fun in Idaho
  • The Helper The Helper:
    freaking Idaho
  • Varine Varine:
    Yeah it sucks up there, but it'll be a bit easier for the summer probably.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    When you get to Houston you will have your pick there is a huge shortage of good people to work in your field here. They are hiring everywhere and Texas is pretty much fully open.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    for anyone else following this yes I am in Houston so Varine and I will RL meet gotta love it! Looking forward to it!
  • jonas jonas:
    awesome
