•Overmind Rising•

Postby timmieswe » Mon Jan 07, 2008 8:04 am

hello! Heres some stuff about my new campaign to the contest!
"The only Zerg survivor (thats not workng whit Kerrigan) happends to be a Cerebrate... this Cerebrate has succesfully created an Overmind and another Cerebrate (you) he is old and the creation of the overmind and you has taken a lot on his strength so you will have to do almost all the work whit protecting the Overmind..."
Well as you may understand this campaign is almost all about the Zerg...
for now there are 6 maps ready and I am working in the seventh, which is a space platform map. (wont say anymore about it :p)
It is (to me) a good story ( maybe because I did it...) and I made so many different map types...
In starcraft, where you choose what map to make it is a sqare in front of the name and behind it so it will come somewhere at the bottom... Dont give it less points for that! Its just to make it easier to find among all of your maps on Starcraft...
What more too say?
I am confused... What race should I play as? Send a message of what u think and why...
Good luck in the Starcraft mini  campaign contest... :D

Look at this, amazing! http://www.maxfreak.com/starcraft2/wp-c ... t_army.jpg

What more to say, eh?

Well, we're interested in seeing things you've done. SHOW us what you've made instead of telling us. Maybe some screenies. Do you have a hero / character list?

But now for my reaction - from what I understand, the player is a Cerebrate who's teamed up with another Cerebrate and together they've 'made' a new Overmind. Note that this concept HAS been used in BroodWar. Not a problem, though.

I'd say, show us more and I'm definitely looking forward to hearing more.

By the way, I didn't understand the part about the square, but if it doesn't affect the campaign itself, I'm pretty sure it won't hurt your chances.

The sqare doesnt affect the campaign maps that much...
If you start your starcraft then click single player then ok then custom game There you got the list where you will see teh sqares... This will make tha maps coming somewhere at the bottom...
thats good, right? Finding your map easily.
I will come up whit some Screenshots soon... maybe even today! :D

And no, I havent thought of having Heroes in my campaign as a main character... That place is already taken by The Overmind... But there will be some Heroes that you will controll in some maps...

Zerg campaigns are always good, as they are rare. Looking forward to your project!

That's probably cuz it's harder to create a believable Protoss or Zerg story than a Terran story. Blizzard hasn't given us as much details on them as they did on the Terrans - and still do.

I'm making a Zerg minicampaign, but it's really hard to get things clear and believable. I mean, they're BUGS! :D

Wtf.

First of all, there's a MODIFY button, which BEGS to be used by you. Second, I don't get half of what you're saying, but I understand you're having trouble making screenshots. Just open StarEdit, blot out of the minimap and take a screendump --seriously, how hard can it be?

Good luck.

making a zerg campaign is quite easy actually. Just think "daggoth" in your mind and come up with something. Protoss is actually the most difficult.
