Report article RSS Feed StarCraft 1 engine has a lot of limit.

I realized while modding SC that SC has a lot of limit...

Posted by Black_Overseer on Jan 29th, 2013

For an example many things has it's limit in number 256 or 255 just like maximum color, upgrade, graphic size, map location, trigger, etc 

Script Maximum size at 64kb and 
Images              5000
Sprites             2500
Units               1700
Weapons             100
Supply(non-team)    200  

For this reason I have optimized everything in Dawn of Change which I learned from failure of Riot of Star.
If I don't get rid of this error I will turn over to Red Alert 3 mod or SC2 Usemap after finishing Dawn of Change and Burning Ground.
Moreover I am concerned about making Campaign. 

In recent time, there are people asking thebest(khkgn) for tutorial.
I wanna say them that thebest(khkgn)'s work is quite complicated using many programs and macro and he is not good in English
Also he the programs crash when he tries to record.
Thus, he won't understand if you send him a long text.
Eventually, he is really busy about stuffs in reality. 
Programs that thebest uses are:
AnCamera(Korean Program), Photoshop, SC2 Galaxy Editor, 3ds max and Team Viewer(Korean Remote control program). 

Team Viewer is use to remote control his PC during his outing.
Finally, someone who is interested in DOC Campaign Storyline, pm me. I could send part of Storyline.

Supply can be increase to 1000 or 10000, but to many units will exceed maximum sprites.
I am interested in DOC storyline, also I am an experienced mapper.
ABout iscript, maybe PyICE can solve the problem.

The maximum number of sprites on a map at any given time is 1650.

The 256x256 map size is a limitation in all Blizzard games due to the maps being multiples of 32 and the map dimensions only being stored in one address per dimension, which one address numerically is limited to 256.

And as far as I remember, there were no limits to Iscripts.
