Update 4 released - important balances, new structures, some fixes

This is a new take on the traditional Starcraft races. The three races have been replaced by three hybrid races with completely new units and buildings. Includes AI variations to make playing against computer more interesting. Includes sounds/voices from Starcraft 1, except for the music but you can easily find the playlists of Starcraft 1 music on youtube (for the full experience ;D).

Important! Only choose between Human (/Bionic), Orc (/Infested) or Undead (/Void Predators) for both you and AI players. AI does not function as it should when it has its race as Night Elf (Warcraft 3 bug).

Current SH maps:

        The Hunters                       Top vs Bottom                  Island Deluxe
SH map The Hunters (updated terrain)            New SH map: Top vs Bottom           New SH island map (V1.3)

Old gameplay video of the Hunters: Youtube.com

There are three playable races:
The Bionics - a combination of Terran and Protoss forces
The Infested - a merge between zergs and infested Terrans
The Void Predators - a merg between Zerg and Protoss

Features:
- Play with one of the three Hybrids races. Each race featuring an arsenal of new and unique units and structures.
- The focus is more on strategy than micro managment, like in Starcraft 1. Many abilities can be auto-cast or are passives, allowing you to focus on other important things. Also terrain bonuses. However there are still some units for you who like lots of micro management.
- The all new units and buildings enable entirely new defensive and offensive strategies.
- Many custom resources and Starcraft 1 sounds (even voices) have been used to give it that starcraft feeling, while staying under 8mb! So you can still play the map on battlenet and lan.

This map is not protected, you can modify, take things from it and hopefully learn from it. Do as you like.

I have started on a Starcraft Hybrids campaign. This campaign (maybe multiple campaigns, not yet decided) will follow the story of the three new hybrid races set in the Starcraft universm.

Campaign features:
- Get to play with 3 completely new races with lots of new units, upgrades and abilities and learn their tricks & tactics.
- Have already played my SH maps alot? Don't worry, the campaign adds new stuff like Starcraft 1 like heroes, new units, new enemies and ofcourse new maps.
- Lots of custom models, skins, sounds, voices and even music used to give it that Starcraft feeling we all love so much.
- A new story set in the Starcraft universm. Meet the new hybrid races, but also encounter the traditional races as enemy or ally.
- Not protected, you can modify, take things from it and hopefully learn from it. Do as you like.

Would you like to know more? See this link: Hiveworkshop.com

Later on it will be uploaded on Moddb too.

New versions uploaded, awaiting authorization.

Update 4

* 3 new defensive/support buildings (1 for each race).
* The build time of Drones has been reduced from 9 to 7 to compensate for the worker lost when creating a building.
* Sunken- and Void Colonies now give supply too like non-upgraded Colonies.
* Shocker has a new ability: Blaster.
* Minions now have the Horror passive ability which decreases the combat effectiveness of nearby enemy ranged units.
* Top vs Bottom: the two expasion islands that are close to the starting locations of the players have been made a bit wider, so more room for structures.
* Top vs Bottom: center island (which a bit to the south) made a bit wider so it is easier to capture.
* Island Deluxe: improved terrain detail.
* The Hunters: fixed the victory conditions and defeat messages bug.

What I replied to you on Hiveworkshop;

, as UndeadImmortal points out I can safely say it is impossible to add custom music while keeping the filesize below 8mb (higher than that and maps cannot be played on battle-net & iirc also cannot be played on netwerk/lan, excluding through things like Hamachi). That said, later when I will make a campaign I am not limited by filesize (since it is singleplayer only) and so for a campaign I will certaintly add custom music. At the moment I am very busy with my education so campaign will come later.

ps: when I play SH i just open youtube select e.g. Starcraft 1 soundtrack playlist or something else fitting. This Starcraft playlist is perfect Youtube.com (hooray for no commercials)

Oh actually I was somewhat off. In regard to my previous reply, that map's only got about 9 1/2 minutes of imported music/sounds, because the rest of the sounds are already in the game. The map itself is under 1 MB without the sounds, but I hope you still you get my point.

I know of a map that is just under 4 MB and has over 15 minutes worth of imported music/sounds, so using one song that's a few minutes per race is definitely within the realm of possibilities with an 8 MB limit.
