Of course, there's lots of other and more important stuff anyone should be doing than devoting time to creating a Starcraft campaign. That's like, a law of the universe.

But it's so much fun to be working on something that you like so much and you want nothing more than to see finished.

I'm not judging anyone, especially Oracle. He and I used to be as thick as thieves. Or maybe a bit less thick, but still close enough. I was merely stating that if Laconius is to become legend, he must walk down that lonely road also. It's that law I was talking about.

I've mentioned SEVERAL times, and in his own threads in the LotC forum that he's getting married. His wedding is next weekend. Count that plus the honeymoon and settling down with hundreds of new wedding gifts, then he'll get back to work I'm sure. I'm not only going there as a friend, I'm also going there as his fascist administrator to get him to get cracking again.

Noted.

As for Auspex and Desler, Lav, what have you done with THEM? I'm only kidding of course.

Thanks, Lavarinth, for the information. I know it's not all your fault.

Auspex- I wish I knew!

Desler- Dude vanished to say he's working on his project under the radar, but I have a thought that he just called it quits judging by his Facebook.

Actually I find it ends up becoming more of a chore in the final stretch of something enormous like Black Sun. Where you've been through these motions a dozen times and just want the obligation off your shoulders. I think that's because this game makes me incredibly angry, though.

I don't know if you guys have an account on the boards of Antioch Forever, but last year Auspex emerged from the shadows for a short time. Here is what he had to say:

Auspex Turmalis wrote:...The world is treating me well. My wife Maria and I are about to have our first child in June, and I've been working on a webcomic called Masked Manor that premiered in February of this year ( http://www.maskedmanor.com ). So, my plate's been pretty full...

(Source)

Auspex Turmalis wrote:...I love SC2. It's everything I would have hoped a sequel to be. I think if it had been more different than SC1, I wouldn't have liked it. I feel the balance is spot-on, though I'm sure more tweaks should, can, and will be made. The minute I started learning the new ins and outs (how damage/attack/unit types work now; racial building special abilities; and so on), I really started to love the game.

If anything, the major differences are in the single player component and in the maps/modding arena. If it weren't for the fact that the story is going to be divided into three separately released installments, I'd already be gearing up to start The Antioch Crisis. As it is, I'm taking a wait-and-see approach cause I don't want to create anything that's not going to easily fit into canon. I don't wanna get halfway through and have Blizzard's Zerg or Protoss campaign stomp my continuity into the ground...

That guy must have had a very low opinion of BW.

Right? SCII is, was, and forever will be a horrid blaspheming mishap on StarCraft lore (and, well, anything related to StarCraft really).

Oh well.

Or he just grew up and doesn't care anymore, feeding us the b/s we're asking for. :D

As for the point you're making- I can't agree with you more. I deleted SC2 from my hard drive months ago and I lost the CD, UNINTENTIONALLY.

I still have the CD but deleting the game would free up 12 gigs of memory that I don't really need but could still find a better use for.

Like custom Brood War content!

I am too addicted to French tears to delete the game unfortunately.

I don't think I ever finished the game, actually. I just saw the SC2 folder a while ago and figured I'd delete everything inside it. Now there's loads of porn.

This StarEdit contest is getting exciting. It must be pretty awkward for Blizz to see so many people still playing that old bastard of a game instead of their latest. On a related note, didn't Blizzard used to say that the next instalment of SC2 would be released a year after the Terran campaign? I haven't been paying attention much, but I don't think it's been released and we've had this one for 2 years now? 3? I don't know -- more than a year that's for sure.

more than AN ENTIRE YEAR

also is it just me or is the only mention of SC2's crappy lore in those Auspex quotes where he merely said he doesn't want his fan projects to contradict canon. That's arguably silly enough on its own, but it sounds like the other comments mostly just related to gameplay and moddability

Even if you don't plan to buy the expansions, lifting the assets off of their data and using it in the vanilla game is no doubt an effortless process.
