How To Convert StarCraft Maps to StarCraft 2

The must anticipated release of the StarCraft 2 Editor has many of us quitting our most dearest Battle.net for a moment and see what new and exciting features this tool has in store for us.

To our surprise, Blizzard has included in the Galaxy Editor the ability to import legacy StarCraft and WarCraft III maps. Now we can expect to see those old time favourites make a return once more in shiny new colours, with very little work from the mapmakers.

Continue reading to see just how this feature works and what are its limitations as Teal of StarCraft: IncGamers convert Big Game Hunters into a StarCraft II map.

Oh, I wonder if they will patch that feature as well through beta, to automatically add cliffs added automatically. :)

what I mean is, TOTALLY AWESOME!

Cogo2786d ago

Yes... While I do see great potential, it's still just the terrain. :P

Leord2786d ago

True, but honestly, that can be the hardest to copy from many SC1 maps.

Wow, that is truely amazing

Leord2786d ago

I had a look in the editor, it's bloody complicated :P

Cogo2786d ago

Well, if you have any sort of programming background, it should be ok :)

Fyzzu2786d ago

Complicated how? More complicated than the War 3 editor? I thought that was really simple...

UIOP2786d ago

The WC3 editor is very simple to use compared to the SC2 editor at the moment (they might make it simpler over time though).
Just to create something as simple as a new unit, that used to take a second in WC3, will take you around a minute, and that is when you are used to it. The first time you will probably need a tutorial, unless you want to spend an hour or more.

Indeed, the editor looks very complicated but at the same time very powerful.
