    But we will need to invent some new features for ice escape with patches. ;D

    Hmm, have the patches introduced some new possibilities? Do you perhaps know a summary of all new natives introduces within, say, a year? As I don't recall stumbling across such list, there's no hype in me. And I can't diff old & new common.j's as I only have the newest patch, and too lazy to crawl through the file manually for cool stuff.

    No summery, but I checked some cool ones
    - unit armor/attack/colldown/abil tooltip etc manipulation
    - more control of type "effect", control xyz, animations, etc
    - enable/disable abilities, like also move/attack, etc
    - mouse natives

    Hm.. still no UI manipulation (hiding in particular)? Cuz that would enable for all the gut shizzle, Ice Escapers don't need to see unit stats / minimap / command card so the bottom UI could be hidden without losing anything.

    Anyway, I might give JASS-related VSCode extension development a go now that code externalization is officially supported thanks to JASSHelper in 1.30 WE. I see we have one (vJASS extension) already, but I find it very lacking.

    Edit: Then, if I ever get it anywhere usable (unlikely), I would write a beginner-friendly tutorial on setting up the environment, along with teaching the JASS & vJASS language. But this is wishful projection, doubt I'd get that far..

    Ew I'd have to use JavaScript, which is not C. I'd rather get used to Wurst.

    By the way, wouldn't it be cool to have a Discord server for Ice Escapers? Or is there one already but I'm just not in.

    A site based java script jass class would be cool.^^
    There's a group of some friends and old ice clan members, but I in all years we maybe never used discord to make a match. It's just a dead channel in discord. ;s

    Oh yeah, an interactive JASS tutorial would be a super powerful learning tool. Like this: https://learngitbranching.js.org/
    But I actually meant that VSCode extensions require JS at least as a bootstrapper.

    Ah, that doesn't sound too nice. :( I bet an Ice Escape project would shed some light into the community. A stand-alone Ice Escape maybe?

    Yeh that's super neat! Maybe in 5 more year wc3 someones starts something for JASS. ;D

    Ah ok. I don't really use VS since 1-2 years anymore. Do you? (for work) I guess I'm rusty there.

    What you mean as stand alone? Even maybe noone plays it, but a well made ice map sounda actually appealing, in terms of making it.. ;D have you something in mind?

    I use VS for C++ programming as a hobby, very mature tool suite. But VSCode is another program, it's an augmented text editor rather than an IDE.

    Stand alone as in its own application. It could give me experience on game dev, whereas modding WC3 is kind of a waste of time.

    Based on what I've read on hive, Blizz can sue me if I made a standalone Ice Escape. They can argue to own the rights for Ice Escape and associated names and unless I have as good juridical power as Valve had when defending Dota 2 I'm fkd.

    Also, random EBR clip to try to provoke some interest in you: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j4u3fe3uydE
