Hey there - If you could include an actual tutorial (ie steps written down, or recorded on video), I'd be interested in having it added to the list.

Could you give us any sort of update on when the first couple of posts are going to be updated? Are you just going to link to the tutorials we've submitted or will it be something more than that?

It will be links to tutorials that you've submitted as well as others that are on mapster, galaxywiki, hiveworkshop, etc, that haven't been posted in this thread yet.

We're pleased to announce that we have our first six featured tutorials and we encourage new map makers, seasoned veterans, and everyone in between to check them out.

We hope these six tutorials are just the first of many guides featured within the thread, so please continue to submit your creations and keep up the great work!

Introduction to the AI Module


That's the BEST tutorial you could find? I watched it 3 times and followed EXACTLY what he did (or tried to) and still couldn't get the waves to work...

I should probably point out this link here (credit to ProzaicMuze for collecting all of these together):

This links to a whole mass of other tutorials.

Here's a list of some of the tutorials I've written for GalaxyWiki (I figured one post with multiple would be better than posting 9 times in a row):
http://www.galaxywiki.net/Attaching_a_Model_to_a_Unit
http://www.galaxywiki.net/Attributes_(Stat_Boosts)
http://www.galaxywiki.net/Creating_a_Missile_Ability#Missile_Explodes_Upon_Reaching_Target
http://www.galaxywiki.net/Creating_a_Random_Proc_Effect
http://www.galaxywiki.net/Dialog_Background
http://www.galaxywiki.net/Importing_Custom_Artwork
http://www.galaxywiki.net/Inventory
http://www.galaxywiki.net/Items
http://www.galaxywiki.net/Level_Up_Effect

EDIT:
These were written prior to the latest major patch, so I'll have to eventually go back and make sure they're all still accurate (and the most efficient methods).

Here's the first of many tutorials I plan on making. If you have any ideas for me on ways to improve my tutorials I'm all ears. If I'm doing something poorly I'd rather find out and fix it than learn 10 or 20 videos in.

Hey, does anyone know about a tutorial for the lighting regions? I have no idea how they work - even when I change the attributes for the lighting regions tab in the lighting window, nothing changes between the regions.

Can no one really spare about 1 - 2, maybe 3 minutes to write up a basic run down on the workings of lighting regions?

Here's a introductory-level tutorial for User-Types I created. It goes over how to use User types to create a wave system for a simple tower defense, and then how to access the data via triggers to make the waves spawn :D

http://www.sc2mapster.com/forums/resources/tutorials/49018-data-triggers-getting-started-with-user-types/

Hopefully somebody will find it useful ^.^

I made a tutorial on how to navigate the editor and get the basics down. I thought that it'd be nice to have a comprehensive video tutorial on using the editor, updated for Heart of the Swarm. I also go into detail about map bounds and creating certain features in your map. This is for beginners, but anybody can learn something from it really.
