ScmDraft 2 - Alternative starcraft map editor

It can - that is the configuration I am using. Make sure you are using all four MPQs, and that they are in the correct order.

Oh wow! Thank you so much! Saved my life

I have uploaded a temporary build that works around the issue in the latest patch here. Use this until the game is fixed.

Not much, but I donated to SCM Draft. Thank you for maintaining your program over the years.

Loved the program ever since I started using it. I can see improvements as time goes by. Love it.

It’s so good even blizzard is letting you take the reigns on the map making editor lol.

Sadly I was too little to show my support or donate before, but now I can!

Thank you again. (Please don’t disappear.)

Everyone give the guy who made SCMdraft a round of applause, and a monetary donation. This guy has done great work, I’m very impressed. Blizzard is lucky to be associated with him.

Yeah, he’s done awesome work! It’s just a shame that Blizzard screws up his fixes for SCMDraft every time they release a new patch.

Thanks, I appreciate it =)

Any chance you can make protected maps load? It’s really hard to reach, download an unprotector (and many of them don’t work vs. specific map) and unprotect every map individually.

I’ve never found a map I couldn’t unprotect using OSMAP2, maybe it’ll help you out.!a8xkwILB!iGeoIM12wrk5bY9sqqWuFw

I will echo the sentiment though. Map protection is pointless and only stifles the growth of mappers who don’t know how to breach it. At least showing a specific error saying ‘map is protected’ would be nice, but not sure if that is technically possible.

Protection vs. unprotection is a messy debate I do not want to get involved in, and I wouldn’t even be able to guarantee that the maps work as intended.

I have uploaded a new release that supports the new custom player color options =)


Excellent!!! Time to check it out!

I would just like to say thank you for making this really cool map editing tool. Without this, I wouldn’t have fun making my own maps and my own custom campaign!

I want a string ID in String Editor.
I need it when using EUD.

I’ll add it to the ideas list.

This might have already been solved, but I’m still getting my head around SCMDraft 2…

Are you able to add extra triggers?
In other words, can we add suggestions for triggers for you to add, or are we limited to the ones Blizzard already have?

You are limited to the triggers SC supports, but with EUD triggers (and external EUD trigger compilers) you can do some fairly fancy stuff.

Thanks for the response. Could you give me an example of this fancy stuff?

Also, if a map is made with SCMDraft 2, will it work on Broodwar 1.16?

Your best bet is (or discord) for help with that, I’m not an expert on putting that to use.

It depends - some features require SC:R, but then when doing save as it will let you know that.

Hi Everyone,
Hi Sinsanity!

First of all, I want to thank You for the fantastic piece of work. I’m using the SCMDraft 2 for many, many years and I’ve one question about colors of the players. The newest version of the editor contains 23 colors that we can choose for the units of the players. From when I remember only few from the additional colors are working on the single player maps that I’ve created. I want to ask if this content should work correctly or maybe I’m doing something wrong? The list of colors that work on my maps:

red - works correctly
blue - works correctly
teal - works correctly
purple - works correctly
orange - works correctly
brown - works correctly
white - works correctly
yellow - works correctly
green - works correctly (on every tileset)
tan - works correctly (on every tileset)
dark aqua - works correctly (on every tileset)
pale yellow - works correctly, but not on the snow and desert tileset
pale green - doesn’t work
grey - doesn’t work
cyan - doesn’t work
pink - doesn’t work
olive - doesn’t work
lime - doesn’t work
navy - doesn’t work
margenta - doesn’t work
black - doesn’t work

I’ve used the settings that You suggested in the conversation above nad I’ve a Remastered installed on the computer. I’ve that situation with the colors from when I remember, from the 1.16 patch. I’ll be very glad if You can help me or tell me what I’m doing wrong. Or maybe this feature is still being prepared?

Thanks for the answear!
