Yes, let us build a rouge camp, so that we can make lipstick for all the women in your game.


Thanks! fixed

He's making a sort off realism-RTS. Just play Civilization III map or something :ugly:

Fantasy, not realism.. I want to make a strategy mod, since all people think of warcraft mod is heroes

So only one race?

More to come!

Updated with Cultists
I'm expecting more constructive comments :wink:

Ogre lancer- Ogre unit with a lance, can jab people with it extra damage.

Goblin supply caravan- vehicle that can self destruct on structures only, the AoE can affect other non structure units nearby but main damage on structure. Also has a type of mana regen aura, and health regen aura, short range, acts if giving new armor, and new weapons to units.

Goblin Tactician - Long range (preferably over 700) light-armored siege unit. May enhance nearby ally units with different type of auras:

- Siege : Damage bonus
- Defensive : Armor bonus
- Search & Destroy : Overall speed bonus

GTactician may be enhanced by Madness, an active ability which costs no mana, that increases it attack speed by 100% for 15 seconds, but with a 20% chance to miss as a fair trade.
