Natural Selection v1.4b

Submitted by callex
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Natural Selection

Summary:
Create your species and evolve your creatures from simple land animals to unique and powerful beasts. Fine-tune their genetic code in singleplayer, and then unleash them against others online!

Natural Selection is a sandbox game in which you design you own unique species of creature. At first your species is basic, with a preset size, colour and behaviour. Over time however, your creatures will adapt to their competition; potentially developing a wide array of abilities - anything from fire-breathing wolves to berserker polar bears is possible!

Features:
-Thousands of possible creature combinations
-Adapted save/load system for storing your creations (based on a script by TriggerHappy)
-Advanced creature AI, that controls everything from hunting to mating and nesting.
-Unprotected version can be found here. Mappers are welcome to take a peek under the hood and learn how everything works


Changelog:

    Unfortunately Callex no longer develops maps for WC3 to my knowledge, and I unfortunately never had a chance to get a copy of the unprotected map from him before he went to work on SC2. Happy to hear y'all all love the game though, I had a lot of fun on the original version before working on this terrain for Natural Selection.

    Sorry man, wish I could help. Best chance would be to try and contact Callex directly if you can find out how.

    If you decide to make your own map like this, if you need someone to make the terrain/world, I could try and help you out.

    If you keep an eye out in the next few months I might post up some playable WIPs of my map that is similar to this. I'm taking a new crack at an old concept I posted on wc3c many moons ago. That thread isn't perfectly representative yet, but I did get some of the base systems working.

    Pyro, if you want the Natural Selection terrain this uses for that concept, I'd be willing to hand it over.
