Developed by Blizzard following the sucessful WarCraft series, Starcraft is undoubtably one of the most innovative and popular RTS games to hit the market. Introducing for the first time three races all completly unique yet perfectly balanced, this made for some fantastic gameplay with zergling rushes, to siege tank massacres. With starcraft having such a cult following there are bountiful mods available from simplistic character changes to new scenarios, and challenges to face. The fact that Starcraft has been game of the year sums up just how good this game is, so crank it up if you are not already playing it!

In the video, Aaron goes over the Zerg’s mineral mining system and demonstrates how the both the Zerg and the Warcraft races will see each others resources. Enjoy!

In order to get the Zerg’s mining to work within a standard Warcraft 3 map, we planned out the entire system on paper (and all over the floor) before even beginning the code.

Halting trigger development to go through this process was initially frustrating, but accounting for bugs and locking down the system before the coding actually began really paid off with peace of mind!

I would be extremely grateful to get in contact with you guys, you've done an incredible job at coding all of this. I have a mod of my own and I would love it if you could give me a few tips as to how you manipulated the game so finely (the game runs SO smooth!)

To modify Warcraft 3, most of the information is already available at websites such as World-editor-tutorials.thehelper.net, Hiveworkshop.com and www.thehelper.net's forums.

After that it just takes hard work and dedication!

If you have any specific questions, go ahead and send us a private message and we'll see what we can do!
