It's summer now and some of us don't have much to do, so while I wait for answers on forums, I decided to start making a BattleDex game in the StarCraft 2 mapmaker (if by some weird twist of fate it actually gets finished, could be an "advertisement" on Battle.net)

However there's two key differences in the games:
1. Starcraft is real-time. BattleDex is turn-based
2. Starcraft is on a square-gridded board. BattleDex is on a hex-gridded board.

However, I just finished making the map (other than elevation). It's the Boot Camp map. If I make a 2player map and do some of the coding, and you're a(n American version) StarCraft 2 player interested in playing the map, PM me. Otherwise, enjoy the pics ^^

I'll attach the file later today. It's still in very early work, and some things will be different (for example, when buying units you have to click the unit's button twice instead. I'll make sure there are no bigger changes than that though.

Also, in case i forget to mention it later, if you ever want to play a custom map open the ".SC2Map" file and, once it's open, hit ctrl+f9

Here's the file, but be warned, it is in no way anywhere near ready to play. The UI is there, the units are set, and you can purchase AA's, but there isn't much more than that yet. The limitations between the sc2 engine and some things done in BattleDex is really slowing me down

again, open the file and hit ctrl+f9
