CarbonTwelve from has a new build order optimizer, inspired from Lomilar’s Evolution Chamber. This program is made with C++ instead of Java, which CarbonTwelve says is very fast, and you will need to install Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributables x86 to use.

SCBuildOrder is not only faster than Evolution Chamber, but it can also optimize the build orders for all three races: Protoss, Zerg, and Terran. So if you want to know the fastest build order to get a certain unit out, you should try this program out. One more thing – there may be some errors or unfinished coding because it’s not the final version yet, so you should always check the official site to download the latest versions.

BlizzTV is a lightweight open source content aggregator made by Blizzard fans. You can use this to stream the latest game (i.e. StarCraft II) videos, vods, feeds, and events on your desktop. It’s only in beta version right now, and we should expect more features in later versions.

Lomilar from has released a cool new program, Evolution Chamber, that will help you find the fastest time to build something in StarCraft 2. Currently this is only for the Zerg race, so Terran and Protoss players are out of luck. Also, you will need Java 1.6 installed to run the program.

Using this is relatively simple – you just input numbers next to the units or buildings you would like to make. Depending on the build order that you want, this program can take from several minutes to several hours to complete the optimization.

Below in the spoiler is the output for Lomilar’s input to make 7 Roaches as fast as possible. To read the output, you’ll need to know what these little things mean:

@: Current time
M: Minerals
G: Gas
L: Larva
S: Supply count
Unit name: Build the unit
@1fc9896: Ignore, just an address
+1: Unit is done

You can download the program below, but you should check the official site first for a more updated version.
