Is anybody (unless it already exists) creating some type of simplified map editor similar to the War3 World Editor. I have been messing around with the A2 editor but I want to use triggers, add new units, and change unit size. Maybe even add abilities to certain ships and have them "level up" once they aquire XP. I know this sounds impossible but it would be freaking awesome.

I want to basically create a single player map where you play as a Single Borg Cube that must assimilate/destroy the galaxy. Starting in Delta to the Gamma, and moving eventually into the Alpha and Beta regions.

I would just like a few suggestions on how I can acclomplish this.

well you can already change the unit sizes and whats in map editor.. and as far as adding things to ships you can do that in their odf files.. but as far as the singal borg cube.. what your asking to do is creat a mission.. impossible to do in map creater.. but a good idea.

Ok well i figured out how to work the map editor. I just layed one borg fusion cube and basically made a maze for it to travel through with a few ships from the other team. Now how do I start the game using map settings. When I select instant action and choose the map all units that i placed disapear. How do I fix this?

Sorry about the double post but I believe I figured out how to accomplish this (after reading other posts). So I have to set the neutral hostile ships "creeps" to team 8. And for my own ships, I need to make it derlict with a starting location near the the empty ship and transport aboard. I hope this works but I can't test it out until friday. I could use some confimation.
