HunCraft Genocide is the most detailed unofficial expansion pack for StarCraft: Brood War. It has 3 new units, new heroes and special buildings in the campaign, 3 new campaign episodes (26 missions and a hidden mission), more than 40 new multiplayer maps and some small changes. Though the most StarCraft expansion packs can be used in use map settings, this game has own exe file, menus and new map file format (hcx). It does not change anything to your original StarCraft installation, but needed to be in the same directory. There is a bugfix patch for it which make some balances in the game. Single player can be described with mass battles and especially difficulty. The story continues after Brood War, when admiral DuGalle has committed suicide and Kerrigan has regained control of the Zerg forces. According to Brood War epilogue, no UED ships returned to Earth, but some UED forces remained on Char. The game starts with exactly the same prologue which Brood War has as an epilogue.

This ModDB page created in april of 2012. Before that there were no avaliable content in English and advertisements about HunCraft. Just because the developers didn't think so important to advertise this game in English communities.
There were some demands to translate the game into English. Some examples:
You may think it is too late, because StarCraft 2 was released meanwhile, but this game has an exciting campaign, it is worth to finish it, or try some multiplayer games with the new units. If you liked StarCraft 1, you should give a try to HunCraft.

A facebook page is also created in June of 2012.
HunCraft Genocide works well with the newest Brood War patch in single player (campaign and custom game), but for network games 1.09b Brood War patch required (it is included to HunCraft installer). All battle.net servers for HunCraft are offline permanently. Network games can be organized through the internet using network emulator clients (tunngle, hamachi, xfire).
It would be nice to see on youtube how some sc1 pro gamers play with this game.
Term "Huncraft" is also used for a Hungarian StarCraft 2 competition, and for a Hungarian minecraft community. These terms can be mistaken sometimes like in this stream at 02:22.
This is the very first trailer of HunCraft, was made in december of 2000.
HunCraft is a detailed expansion set for StarCraft: Brood War, by Huncraft Interactive, released in August of 2001. It has 3 new campaign episodes with 26 missions and a hidden mission, 3 new units, new heroes with new portraits, new special buildings in the campaign, new music tracks, 2 new cinematics, more than 40 custom maps and some other minor changes. It is in the Hungarian language but the hotkeys are the same as the English language Starcraft. The original name of the project was StarCraft: Genocide, but the Hungarian version was retitled to HunCraft, and since no English version was ever released, the game is known as HunCraft.
Blizzard's publisher, Vivendi Universal, did not allow the game to be published as an official expansion set, due to the low number of Hungarian customers, so it was released as a free game. It was not particularly popular, as many Hungarian Starcraft fans did not know about it, due to the lack of advertisements. According to Huncraft Interactive the making of the game was very difficult, due to issues with some of their contacts.
Though most unofficial expansion sets could only be used in custom maps, HunCraft has its own exe file and a totally new environment (new load screen, new episode characters) with new map file extensions (hcx). After installation, original Starcraft can be used without any changes, because HunCraft has separate files from the originals, but HunCraft must be placed in the same directory. HunCraft is supported until 1.09 patch, but works equally well with subsequent patches.
