Speaking of which, are Aldaris, Mengsk and Kerrigan still set to make an appearance, as in the original LotC, or are you planning to replace them by original characters?

Just wondering, mostly for technical reasons, as I doubt there's an Aldaris portrait in the editor, and I'm not sure if the sound quality of the original dialogues will be on par with your new recordings.

@johnny:

Kerrigan and Mengsk both make a reappearance. Aldaris is not (for exactly the reason you said).

Aldaris appear in the original campaign, so he have a portrait. :O
That vision of Zeratul, where he appears as mother ship... but he is not in editor?

Well, let's be honest about it... none of the Protoss look like they did in the first game. You really could get away with just using the Protoss advisor for the role (has the same voice, even)

In Starcraft when you select a construction toss appeared the portrait of Aldaris, so now he could use the current portrait of the constructions toss.

It's premature for me to answer that now; once I have a definitive way to import the new unit graphics and portraits without risk to future patches breaking the maps, I can quote a date. Hopefully Blizz will put this support out soon.

The concept for the main incentive of the Confederation invading the Zerg will still be a zerg invasion on the Solar System and Earth or are you going to change this? If the old concept on this matter is preserved, are you going to change the concept for that space battle mission on Earth's orbit? And as a last question, if you do so and the mission is still set in a space platform tileset, will you change the default planet in the background of the tileset for a Earth's animation?

;)

@Omega

a) Episode 1 deals entirely with the Zerg invasion of earth and the solar system. The Confederation emerges out of the ruins but still doesn't go after the Zerg until they attack a Confed colony in Epsilon Eridani almost 350 years later.

b) The space battle mission was scrapped a long time ago (I have that script available in the LotC area of the main site if you want to download it). Originally I wanted to have a skybox of earth in the background for the battle but the story no longer supports the fleet fight. You'll understand why once you play.
