Thread: New SC1 ALPHA screenshots!

  1. #1

    Default New SC1 ALPHA screenshots!

    Well lookie here, I found this on Reddit:
    http://blizzardarchive.com/pub/Image...1_2/clean.html

    Things that stand out:
    - Some Terran starport unit called "Spy Satellite"...Looked like a Widow Mine
    - Better picture of all alpha units
    - Alpha Siege Tank design, both deployed and undeployed (looks REALLY SICK!)
    - Science Vessel started out as an air unit early on, became a land unit, then again an air unit in beta.
    - Terran Marines (called "Marauders") were actually not wearing power suits back in really early alpha
    - Command Center in the early alpha looked like an old, rusty Comsat Station
    - Cleaner, sharped, clearer picture of all the Terran buildings, including the alpha and beta ones that were removed afterwards.
    - Protoss could build Pylons on water! (Reminds me of the abandoned "Water StarCraft/Aqueous Rift" mod)

    Kudos to Arkceangel for the Terran avatar and sig!

    I forgot how bad the team coloring was back then, cool stuff anyway.

    (kinda wish they'd kept that first Science vessel sprite, not the legged one)

    Agreed on the Science Vessel.

    Different problem actually, can't load anything because SP is disabled and there's no way to get onto it's old battle.net :/

    Well, if you can find Ladik's MPQ editor, you should be able to open the MPQ files, no?

    I did that, but I'm not sure what to do with the files (there's also a lot of unknowns in there)

    Yup.

    Not all of it is unknowns, but there are a lot of them.

    Here's some screenshots of what i'm talking about:
