The origional version was released a year ago where it got some people interested including getting a feature on the HuskyStarcraft channel. Since then it has been ported to HOTS and there have been several new features and improvements.
- SALT stands for Save And Load Tool, so called because you can save the game into one of three slots and reload without having to start a new game.
- Restart the map choosing your starting location and race
- Create, edit or import a build
- Play through a build order with timings listed in-game and checked off as you complete them
But the simplest way to demonstrate these capabilities would be to show them in action.
Currently the map pool with SALT on it is:
Ladder / tournament
Team Liquid map contest finalists
Cool other maps
- others (coming soon)
Two things of note however,
You need to have the option "Menu>Options>Gameplay>Enable enemy unit selection" enabled in order to select your starting location (I'm guessing 99% of people have this setting enabled anyway)
Also if you play with a group of three or more then there is a bug when one player leaves the game. Unfortunately I will not be able to fix this for a few weeks but I thought I would announce it in the mean time.
Sorry about the quality of the video. I only had the garbage software that came preinstalled on my machine and I could do with a better graphics card / microphone.
I hope many of you find this to be a useful tool to improve your game and to have some fun with.
Thanks for your time,
