Default Something that I'm curious about

When playing Brood War campaign maps, the Zerg structures have Daggoth's portrait on them rather than the Overmind's, and the Protoss buildings have Fenix's portrait instead of Aldaris'. But when you play regular custom maps or on battle net, its back to Aldaris and the Overmind. Is there any way, by using an advancaed editor, to alter the portraits back again while playing custom? I'm pretty sure it's not, but you never know.

hmmm... interesting detail. Don't know how Blizz did that, but I am certain that none of the regular triggers can do that.

It's probably hardcoded. And no there's no way to do it without modding.

Does it make a difference whether you play .scm or .scx files?

Daggoth's unit portrait only appears in Brood War campaign maps, while Fenix's portrait is in some scm map missions in StarCraft Vanilla, I think after the player rebels against the Conclave.

But in all other regular custom maps, be it scm our scx, it's always Aldaris and the Overmind potraits on all protoss and zerg buildings.

If you really want to see someone's portrait, then just do a transmission, sure there's an annoying ping, but you got your fave character right there beside you! Fenix is my favourite actually... Zealot form.

I believe that that was made through hard coding or even through the StarEdit version that Blizz' used be to make the campaign maps (much like the Deception map).

If it was made with some staredit version, it would have to be stored in the map file. But there is no section in the .chk that would do that, and the few things that are unclear most likely don't have anything to do with those portraits.
