Default Merging Tilesets

So I am told that it is impossible for example to have snow terrain in a jungle tileset. This would really suck cuz I might want to get back to fixing/finishing my old map Golden Sun RPG and I want to get some Snow and Desert terrains in there.

you know how to mod like crazy? Edit the tileset charts by mizing them together, and then see how many people download your mod to play your map. Simple as that....

Also f'n hard as hell. You would need a lot of tools, im not sure which, and you would need a huge ammount of time. also, for anyone to play your map, they would need to download the mod, so it wouldnt easily be playable on Bnet.

It is possible, but highly improbable. check over at www.staredit.net for the tools, I dont have the direct links right now.

Well that's lame.
Someone must make a program that can do it easily.

I do not believe it can put snow in the jungle though, unless you can tell me how.

First of all, a map is saved (simply said) as a tileset indicator and a large array of tile indexes (so 128x128 indexes for a 128x128 map). Basically, you could change the tileset indicator and get a whole new map. It will be quite crappy, though tilesets such as jungle and badlands would convert quite well in some parts.
But: Once you specify a certain tileset, there can`t be any tiles of another tileset in your map. This is, by the way, also true for modding (though it might seem different)
So SCMD2 can't do it. Not at all.

If you choose modding, you have to modify starcrafts mpq files. You need to change the pictures linked with the tile indexes for a certain tileset to whatever you want. There are lots of black tiles, so it would be possible to add in new tiles without losing old ones.
I am no modder, so I don't know the programs you need.

Next thing is, all the people that play your map must have the modded mpq files, or otherwise SC will crash. These files are usually not distributed over battle.net, so not that many people play mods.

Shadowflare is working on a tool that can spread mods over b.net and install the modded files while playing the map. But I don't know how far that project is at the moment.

Actually, in his case, I dont think it would crash, it simply wouldnt work if they didnt have the mod. Since they tiles he actually used were legal without any mods at all, it would just show up as blackspace.

That might very well be - if SC doesn't check for equality of the tiles used.
