3. Frequently Ask Questions


Q) What Is this Map About?
A) This map is a custom made Starcraft Total Conversion map, based on the classi
c '3v3 Micro Clutter Islands ' map design used by starcraft plays today. It has
all 3 races to choose from (Terran, Zerg & Protoss) and the map is desgined in t
he same fashion as any normal starcraft map is played on bnet. I have tried my b
est to make all parts of my Starcraft Converison maps as close to the actual sta
rcraft: Brood War game as i can, with my current map editor understandings. Ther
e are though, some parts that have been either changed or unavaiable for my maps
due to Blizzard Bnet Map size limit restrictions and i am unable to, at this ti
me to proceed to add new things to the maps and eventually complete them.
Q) What are the parts you have had to Change or leave out of ur maps?
A) The Units not found in my maps yet are;
For Terran -
Terran Goliath, Terran Science Vessel, Terran Ghost, Terran Science Facility, Te
rran ComSat Station, Terran Covert Ops, Terran physics Lab
For Zerg -
Zerg Scourage, Zerg Queen, Zerg Guardian, Zerg Defiler, Zerg infested Terran, Ze
rg Devourer, Zerg Hive, Zerg Greater Spire, Zerg Defiler Mound, Zerg Queens Nest
, Zerg Nidus Cancal
For Protoss -
Protoss High Templer, Protoss Archon, Protoss Arbitor, Protoss Dark Archon, Prot
oss Cosiar, Protoss Robotics Support Bay, Protoss Observatory, Protoss Fleet Bea
con, Protoss Arbitor Tribunal, Protoss Templer Archived
As you can see the Reaver, Carrier, Battlecruiser & Ultralisk are included in ma
p, but ive had to forego their proper tech tree requirements based off starcraft
, because their not available in my maps yet.
Most of the units here havent yet been created into models i can use or the curr
ent models are to big or i dont have the available space to included them at thi
s time.
Other changes or differences are
- Liftoff doesnt change units 'targeted as' setting from structure to air.
- Zerg Eggs dont have a cancel buttom and cant stop production
- Terran Spider Mines Dont Burrow, Seek, and become visble when attacking enemy
units
- unit sounds based from warcraft III due to map restrictions
- Workers cant seem to stack like Starcraft BW did
- no machine shop addon appears when upgrade terran factory (no Model and skin f
or machine shop)
- No Comsat Station appears when upgrade is researched (no Model and skin for Co
msat Station)
- armor system is based from warcraft III.
Q) So what units are in this map for each race?
A) I have tried to add as many starcraft units into the map as i can at this tim
e, without exceeding the 4 Megabyte limit restrictions on Warcraft III maps on b
net. Here is a list of avaiable units;
Terran - SCV, Marine, Firebat, Medic, Vulture, Siege Tank, Wraith, Dropship & Ba
ttlecrusier
- Command Center, Supply Deopt, Barracks, Factory, Engineering Bay, Acade
my, Bunker, Missile
Turrent Armory, Starport, Nuke Silo(Addon) & Refinery.
Zerg - Drone, Overlord, Zergling, Hydralisk, Lurker, Mutalisk, Ultralisk & Larva
- Hatchery, Lair, Creep Colony, Spwaning Pool, Hydralisk Den, Spire, Evolut
ion Chamber, Sunken
Colony, Spore Colony, Ultralisk Carven & Extractor.
Protoss - Probe, Zealot, Dragoon, Vindiccator, Shuttle, Scout, Reaver, Carrier,
Interceptor, Observer, Dark Templar
- Nexus, Pylon, Gateway, Cybernetics Core, Robotics Facility, Citedal Of
Adun, Photon Cannon, Stargate & Assimilator.
Q) Why Dont You Have All The Starcraft units in ur maps?
A) This question many players ask and the reason is manly the 4 Megabyte Map Siz
e limit restrictions blizzard has on its bnet server. If i was to try and host a
map over this 4mb limit i would b unable to host it at all and you would only b
e able to the my maps in a single player enviroment which my maps were not inten
ed for. I desgined my maps for playing over the Warcraft III Bnet server system
and i intend to keep it that way. Other factors include models and skins of unit
s of buildings being unavaible for implention to my maps or havent yet been crea
ted.
Q) Will You ever be able to add every unit into ur Maps?
A) I honstly dont know, unless blizzard lift there 4 Megabyte map limit restrict
ions, i and many players will have no choice but to use my maps in there current
state. After 3 years of developing the maps to what they are now, i have had to
change my position on optimising all my maps, because with all the new material
i now have added it is the only way i can get the maps below the 4mb limit.
Q) So you dont protect ur maps? Why?
A) The maps havent been protected, but optimised to compressed as many bytes as
possible to insure the maximum amount of extra space i will need to add more mat
erial as i add them. In doing this compression the maps will become unopenable v
ia world map Editor and you will no longer be able to see how ive done what ive
done. I am thinking of posting a utilities pack containing everything i used. Th
is compression is necessary for my maps development and may allow for the maps t
otal conversion to be possible one day.
Q) It says ur map is 3.66 Megabytes big, Why is it so big?
A) This is combination of the sizes of the models and skins i have imported into
my maps and many of the Advance triggers in Jass form that have made the map si
ze reach its current size.
Q) You said you have all 3 races from starcraft in your maps, how do i select th
em?
A) When you are at the race selection screen before you start the game you can c
hoose them there. For some unknown reason if you are playing the map for the fir
st time you will only get the list of Warcraft III races to choose but the starc
raft races are still selectable this is how they work out;
Terran = Human
Zerg = Orc
Protoss = Nightelf
Just select the apporiate race you wish to be . If you have already played, the
stacraft races will appear now for easier race selection.
NOTE: Undead (Xel'Naga) is a dummy race and i have disabled the race interly and
if u select that race u will lose at the start of the match, SO DONT PICK UNDEA
D (XEL'NAGA)
Q) Are there any new stuff in your maps that aren't from the original Starcraft
game?
A) Yes i have made one new unit for Protoss called the 'Vindicator'. Its due to
appear in the new Starcraft Ghost game. Its much like a Zealot but more heavily
armored and has a big psi cannon which it uses to attack enemy's with. The other
is a new ability for the terran marine called 'Generade Launcher' which is also
due to appear in the New Starcraft game. It does 60 points damage and has a goo
d range, gr8t against large units.

4. Other Starcraft Map Links


I have made a few maps and have posted them all on various sites, due to frequen
t updating most of the links for certain maps change so im only going to post th
e website links where my maps can be found and downloaded freely for your enjoym
ent. The easiest way to find my maps on these sites is to type my name 'night_wo
lveX' in the search engines of the sites and find simiular maps posted by me tha
t way or search for my maps name directly.
