Greetings. I bring you some renovation by changing the poll (it was too much, like 5 months...) and the screenshoot of the month (which I've changed a while ago but I announce it now).
Shortly, the former poll tells us that the mayority liked patch 1.14. Though many didn't even know that it was out...
The new poll is about map making and well... map makers. We'll like to know what type of sc fans is visiting us currently
By the way I'm aware of a bug in the poll system; it doesn't work propertly in the main page (the page you're right now). It may be possible that your vote won't be computed... so if you want to vote go to a secondary page and do it there. That's the only solution I can give you right now :S
I'd like to make a few announcements:
1. If you ever contacted me for content and I've never replied or it didn't work... well this is the right time to re try. Now I can pay you attention
2. We're currently looking for some guys with good webmastering skills. We need someone in that job because we're in the middle of a layout change process (really! I mean it this time!)
3. If you're looking for more stuff about sc then we recommend you to visit our lastest affiliate:
Scsite. There you'll find more maps, mods and tutorials, among other things.
As I always say, I like to help smaller sites as well as I like to be helped by bigger sites. That's why I give a hand to Scsite, the same way Staredit does with my site, for example.
Well today I'm very happy because after a long and hard year of college (or university, as we call it here) I'm enoying flesh new vacation days!
I decided to take a look to the site and see how things was going... they were not going so well... it's kind of dead.
However I'll leave pain and sorrow for other day because thanks to my master and after a few adjustments the news postings system is back again! That means that things should go faster now and you may see news more often.
I will not make and update on this post, in fact there's nothing new if that was you were waiting for. I'll only want to say that I'm going off for some vacation days on the atlantic beaches for a couple of days, so things will continue as normal (dead) for a while.
Before I leave, I wanted to say you people to have a merry Christmas with your beloved beings and family. And even though it's somehow a little early, happy year 2007!
Hi everybody. I'm currently in the middle of a change process since for the first time I've decided to work on something else besides Starcraft. I need to move, to evolve.
That's why I'm working on other game. I don't know if anyone of you already knows SC2: The Ur-Quan Masters. It's a fantastic game, not specially related to Starcraft indeed (but there are resemblances of course). The fact that it's from 1990 makes it even more interesting...how did the guys do to make such an awesome game in those archaic times for the videogames?
The game is currently available to be downloaded, free and in
english. That's exactly what I'm intend to change, I want to translate the game to spanish.
If you didn't know the game, I'd recommend that you give it a try. Don't be disappointed because of the graphics, it's a nice game. Maybe you'll be a little lost with the history, so you'd better read this manual (click).
If you liked the game, and you speak both english and spanish, join me and give me a hand translating the game.
That's the page I've created to host the work. It's in spanish. As you can see, I'm currently alone in this project and therefore in need of a lot of help. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Carrying out this new project will consume most of my free time (which is very limited anyway), though that doesn't mean I'll be abandoning this page, but it's true the news will be even more sporadic than now.
But not all is sadness! There is in fact some new stuff, a new article and some other strategies.
In addition, time to change the poll. The results of the last were:
Do you play money maps?
-Yeah! great!!111 = 107 (27%)
-Sometimes, if there's anything else = 78 (19.7%)
-No, that maps are for noobs! = 97 (24.5%)
-Money maps?= 114 (28.8%)
Total votes: 396
Oh suprise. Most of you don't know what a money map is. That's bad...well for your information a money map is one when resources are abundant in excess.. instead of the default 1500M patch there usually are of 50000M. Examples of this kind of maps are Big Game Hunter or Fastest Map Ever (or something like that!).
Regarding the new poll, I've asked that question time ago (if you're an old Starsite visitor you may remember it) but just in the middle of the votation period the CuC host went down and I lost all the data.
Now I will resume it =)
Hello everybody. At least I could find a gap in the school schedule and update the site :)
There are 3 new replays and they are v1.12b compatible. Thanks to Richan for them.
In other news, new poll, and well as the SSOTM refresh.
I disclose the results of the former poll:
What do you think about v 1.12?
-Nice patch! = 35.2% (50 votes) -It could have been better = 26.8% (34)
-Didn't like it at all = 14.8% (21)
-Don't care = 23.2% (33)
Based on these data, it's valid to say that most of the players did like the patch in general. Or that at least it was better than the other patches.
The new poll will try to find out about battle.net player's profile...do you like money maps? Vote and tell us your opinion!
Hello. I know I haven't written anything in a while. Oops, I forgot this wasn't a blog ;)
Okay, though I haven't done anything during these months, I'll update some pending stuff I had.
First, I've updated the last episode of my campaign "The Revengers" to version 2.0.
Basically, the new thing is a Warpgate that communicates the bases. I considered that it was something which was needed, since you need to move quickly your units between the bases.
Also, all episodes have been re-protected using Proedit therefore making them safer against unprotection attempts, as well as reducing the overall Campaign size, due to the higher quality of the compression tool of this program.
Lastly, regarding the campaign, the section on which the episode guide can be found has been improved lightly; I just added a preview of each map for reference.
And about the strategies, I've upload some, 3 or 4 I reckon, including a new one, called "The Tanks/Vultures Attack".
You can obviously find it inside the Strategies section.
That's all the news, I expect to bring you news soon. Bye!
Sorry for the inactivity guys; I've been very busy at school.
It keeps me that busy that I haven't created any content for the site in this weeks, in fact I'm almost "newsless".
For now, I'll release a mod called New Horizons. What is it about? Simply I used a relatively new modding tool to customize the space background. That tool is SpacEdit, program created by Suicidial Insanity.
You guessed! The program lets you modify the stars, customizing the color, the shape and the position. Quite an interesting tool.I've added it to the Downloads section
Anyway, the mod is quite simple, it just does that.
Here you go the download link if you want it.
I'll keep my promise on uploading the strategies, but I just can't find the time to sit and work on it :(
In other news, remember that we have a forum so feel free to post and participate on it. Yes, this is what is called advertising ;)
While updates will be very rare, you'll always find me on the forum, so if you have any doubt,question or you just feel you need to say something, that's the place to go.
Hi everybody! Time for some updates.
Two sections have new stuff: Articles and Misc.Moreover,the Downloads section has been strongly improved, adding new files and re arranging them.
The new article is just a starcraft english-spanish dictionary. There you'll find the name of the units/buildings in both languages. I doubt english speakers will be interested in this article...unless you're curious...
The misc stuff is just a .zip file with the 12 days of stacraft sounds. Remember? That map that Blizzard released during Christmas? Time ago? Yep,that.
It was kinda of fun to hear your favorite starcraft's units singing together.
This is a single .mp3 file so that sounds are merged and all in a row. Be careful when you listen to it after a while...it gets disturbing to hear...you'll get the idea
In other news, I've decided to change the poll. I know you'll say it's too soon,but the results are so obvious:
-Sc Central = 6 (6.1%)
-Staredit = 82 (82.8%) -Sc Unleashed = 1 (1%)
-Clan XEN = 1 (1%)
-Ghost-Craft = 6 (22%)
-I like all = 1 (1%)
-I don't like any = 2 (2%)
Congrats to Staredit!
Talking about affiliates, Starsite has lost another one. This time, Sc Central. The webmaster decided to stop updating it,due to lack of time. However, he'll keep the site online.
This is so sad, but indeed it happens. In fact, given the time, I'm afraid I'll have to make that choice too.
Well that's all for now. I'm practically starting school so I guess updates will be even fewer.
At last, the "new" layout is set up and as you can see,it's much more the same, except the color scheme and some minor retouches. It should be working better at 800x600 resolution and it browses fine with IE, Opera and Firefox.
Also, you surely have noted the new logo...whatever.
Most of the sections have been retouched too, some improving or just added info.
Now all the pages are .php files,using the famous "include" command of this the php languague I could make the whole site hang of only 3 pages, modifying these three, and you modify all the site. Easier to make retouches and changes =)
It took me a long time and I was a little rushed to finish the work, therefore if you see any broken link or something wrong please let me know!.
Oh, the only thing I couldn't finish was the Strategies section. Too impatient to correct them all, it'd had delayed the launching too much. It will stay like that till I find the time to complete it.
Besides all this retouching, there is particularly nothing new, though I do plan to add a couple of things later (well school time is coming damn!)
As usual, the SSOTM has been replaced by a new one and there's also a new poll. Before talking about this new poll, the results of the former poll:
This site needs...
-more sc stuff! = 50.4% (64 votes) -stuff of other games = 0.8% (1)
-more news = 3.9% (5)
-Staff! = 6.3% (8)
-A forum = 17.3% (22)
-Nothing = 1.6% (2)
-New layou =t 17.3% (22)
-other webmaster fool! = 2.4% (3)
Time of the conclusions.
People come here in seach of starcraft stuff, and they want more. They don't care about supporting other games. That's mainly what the results of this poll shows.
Moreover, the second most voted options, with identical amount of votes, were about a new layout and about a forum. Well, about the first thing, it's not exactly the same but at least the layout has changed ;)
Regarding the second, let's make a test.
Invision Free forum I've created a forum at Invision Free. Feel free to post if you want ^_^
The new poll is about your favorite Starsite's affiliate. Don't take it too seriously, just for fun. Now go and vote!
Update:And speaking about affiliates, I forgot to tell you, Trickz 'n Stuff has been permanently closed. What a shame :(
The last thing I'd like to talk about is about starcraft's lastest patch and the mods. Well in fact, they don't work in 1.12b. I "think" I can fix it, but I have to find out how.
