This is were you can create and edit races (Terran, Zerg, Protoss, etc.) for the game.


  • You can modify starting resources and workers
  • You can modify the supply cap or food ceiling
  • The race the player is known as and the race used for the starting unit spawns do not have to be the same. An example of this is Stukov and Dehaka in co-op which are set to the Zerg race but spawn Infested Terran and Primal Zerg units at the start of the game.
