Starcraft 2 engine

Starcraft 2 engine
From what I've seen, the Starcraft 2 engine is ridiculously flexible.  Just for example, within the user interface of the ship, in the cantina, there's an arcade game that's an old-school shmup built entirely within the in-game engine.  It might be suitable for something like a Crusader game--with the added advantage of outside environments being simple.  I'll be taking a look at it in the near future and reporting back.

SC2's interface is nothing more, but just upgraded Wing Commander interface.

But SC2's in-mission engine is special.

Re: Starcraft 2 engine
That's a fair point.

As it turns out, I'm hopeless with the engine.  Lost at sea (or in space, as the case may be).

However.

I have seen a decent fanmade bit that looks like ingame from World of Warcraft--i.e., just about right for a modern third-person shooter.  So I languish in hope.

I wouldn't say no.  If you want me to actually come up with a story wholecloth, I'm not sure if I have the time for that.  I could take plot points and expand them into a full story or whatever.

Sure thing mate. Just popup more often. I was waiting for your reply all those days Wink

We can talk about it in the Story thread of Crunovin section. I'll create one, so you can reply.
