This new version brings a lot of new visual effect, reworked upgrades, some new abilities and improved game mechanics. There are also lots of balance changes and of bugs fixed.
Check the last version (1.6) here

1.5 Main Changes


Reworked sentry

Now the Sentry is a spell caster and its focused on support ground armies. The new Sentry has the Plasma Surge spell that allows to instantly recharge ground allied shields.

Reworked Sentry

It also has a reworked version of seismic shockwave that can slow ground units, making it useful to hold a choke point, or difficult an enemy retreat. But this ability also affects your own units, so its works better with support of ranged units. It still disables Tanks, and Spider Mines, and now it unburrow any burrowed units, so it will help against Lurkers.


Terran bio

Medics have increased cost and the healing rate its lower, but they can heal from a further distance so they can be safer from splash weapons. Also they healing capabilities can be improved with the new Stabilizer Med-packs upgrade.

Terran Bio

Science Facility has been lowered in the tech tree and only requires a Factory. So you can have access to infantry upgrades and unlock Ghost earlier.

Vehicle and ship upgrades now require a fusion core to unlock the higher levels.


Zerg new tactics

Queen now have a new spell that replaces Spawn Broodlings: Fungal Scourge

It can be used to snipe key units like before, but also can be used to harass worker lines, or deal damage to groups of clumped units, it synergy well with Ensnare.

The new Nydus Canal doesn't need creep to place the exit, so it can be used to infiltrate behind the enemy lines. The Improved Mitosis upgrade makes it a lot better as it reduce its morph time.



There is a lot of stuff that I haven't the time to add yet, so this release doesn't have new units, some spells where temporary removed and some units are still incomplete and will be reworked for future versions. As I wont be able to work for a while, I decided to release a more complete and solid version than the last one (and hopefully with less bugs).

Hey there, Raven.

I'm an avid StarCraft player, and voice acting and audio engineering is my hobby. If you like, I could provide unit lines for your new units, like the Stormraven.

I can provide an example of Protoss voice acting (because I just recently signed up, I have to wait for seven days before posting direct links, even to YouTube). I'll be checking back. Let me know what you think, and if you're interested.

Sure, send me that example when you can.
Its good to find more people interested in starcraft modding.
I will need some speechs for heroes when start working on camapaings (but not in a near future i think).

Yep yep, sounds good. I'd love to do some campaign voicework.

There's a good example of my voicework in my own project file, "StarCraft: Rivalry". It should be the latest video (unless I upload something later today, etc.). After today, I believe I can post direct links, so it'll be easier to give you examples then.

I tried your mod out and you've got some very nice concepts and execution going on. The modwork must be hard; I've done some of my own and the advanced stuff (EXE edits, etc.) isn't very fun to work with sometimes.

I will add more abilities and upgrades to new units and existing ones. And i will try to make abilities different for each race, so i cant make much combinations because the options are very limited.

Hi RavenWolf,
Can you please add mod compatibility for 1.6.1 Brood War patch? I often play online with friends over Asia server but it is hard to convince them to try your mod since they have to downgrade to 1.5.1 then switch back to 1.6.1 (official patch) to play online match :( I am sure once you add 1.6.1 support, a lot more people will be able to enjoy your beautiful work on Starcraft 1. Great work like this is what makes the community alive and strong for the next coming years.

Keep up the great work! :)

Hi agentghost,
For now GPTP doesn’t support 1.16.1, so i cant update the mod without removing most of the new content. But im working on giving GPTP compatibility with 1.16.1. So if I success I will update the mod asap. 1.16.1 compatibility definitely will be a great improvement for any mod.
