    Maybe the combined spamming power of cakes, ragnoras and mine grab your attention:) Filesize is currently at 7,46 MB without any compression and from what people say I'm pretty sure that's a good sign.

    It's not a mod currently, just a map and will stay like that for quite a while. Not sure what will happen in the semi-distant future though.

    I saw the pic of AI attacking your Ally, and saw the gold mine. Do u have any plans to use another model for Gold mine? And maybe make workers mine the gold mine? like acolyte animation? I think fingolfin can find a way. (he is v good).

    I've actually been thinking that there's a huge lack of alternative goldmine models and it is strange. Even a simple one with a structure and a different rocky part (made using the wc3 rocks) would be refreshing.

    Fin even has different gather systems that can support multiple extra resources desplayed in a multiboard, but I'll like to keep it simple in that aspect.

    The undead mining style wouldn't fit very well imo, since it only supports five workers per mine and I use more, and they would anyway look strange standing symetrically around it.

    One another note, I've opened a brainstorming thread on terrain for the map in the melee nation group.

    Hey, I'm a little inactive lately, relaxing during the few days between two short vacations. I'll come back in force soon.

    @Ragnoras: Thanks for the interest and effort but even now the colors are quite far from what I requested. You could have a more experienced artist assist you in this, as I have no clue on skinning and how to achieve the right colors. Or just let it go at least for now, it's not a top priority thing.

    That's more like it, thanks.

    It will certainly have similarities many with those, as well as AOE I & II, 0 AD and other RTS games.

    What do you people think about reducing the pop cap, possibly including other changes to balance it.. the lategame is somewhat lackbuster and I think WC3's design for fewer troops is to mostly to blame, especially the 12 unit selection limit.

    I think that is made up for by the Ctrl groups, so it will be how fast reflexes are to press the group hotkeys.

    German is a bit Imba. Haha,I love them too. But the Indians can get vey hard to defeat if they train thousands of Elephants. Camels are useless for indians.
