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 The three races have been replaced by three hybrid races with completely new units and buildings.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).

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
- 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.
- 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.
