There are some things in the game, that are underused.
There are many other mods for starcraft.
So, there is an interesting idea to create a mod that changes balance in starcraft.
Purposes of the mod:
1. Make some underused spells or units are more usefull.
2. Make some things in the game are more realisstic.
3. Add some interesting abilities for some units.
4. Save race balance in the game.
Some work were made. Here is last version of the mod.
Instructions, mod mpq file, mod exe file and changes files are in archive.
Try this mod, write here questions, comments, ideas, suggestions :)
