Yeah, I play a LOT of
Starcraft! Even if the game is over a decade old, it's
still one of the best. Here are some maps I've
created. Joe, Todd, and I spend a lot of time on SC,
nearly always playing as allies against the AI. These
maps have been crafted to give the AI an advantage 'cause the
SC AI really isn't too bright. Note that I am not using
any souped-up AI, just the stock AI that comes with

uploaded to my website. (Doh!) Sorry about that...
Bases are all in low ground and pretty cramped. To
expand, you need to move to high ground, but all the resources
are in unprotected terrain. The map is only 192x192 and
the Zerg or Protoss AI expands very quickly.
Bases are all on islands, also fairly cramped. There are
lots of islands with resources, and lots of empty islands to
act as strategic control points. Joe, Todd, and I
usually play against Zerg AI on this map, and getting spun up
fast enough to stay ahead of the Zerg is quite a challenge.

This is a time-limited, destroy-all-buildings map. The
two Terran AI players have a large, prebuilt defense against
air and land attacks. You have to take out all buildings
within 1.5 game hours (one hour wall-time). You cannot
build Battlecruisers, but there are four rescueable BCs for
each human player. Note that there are also two power
generators, one on each side of the map. If you get an
SCV to your power generator, it turns on some map revealers on
the AI bases. NOTE: To win, you must destroy ALL enemy
buildings PLUS the power generators!
