    Today i spent the day rewriting the voting dialog system to support an indefinite amount of dialog screens. Using this, i now split the voting dialog into two screens, the "Alliance Mode" screen, and the "Victory Mode" screen. The victory modes you will be able to chose from in 3.0 will be "Domination" and "Sudden Death".

    In the former, victory conditions are met if a player or a team controls over 75% of the map for more than 5 minutes. In the latter, you are defeated if you lose your capital for more than 5 minutes. I also made it so that players who are done voting are faced with a screen that says "Waiting for other players to finish voting..." until all votes are collected. Prior to this, players were able to start fighting while others were still in the dialog.

    Now only remains to code the actualy victory modes themselves. Once i am done with this, i will be content to release the next version.

    Well, considering the 8mb limit, and the hard time of coding AI into this map,
    I'm pretty much sure it won't be added unless some magic happens.



    But who knows? It will be interesting to have such an AI to practice on though.

    Just fixed the "Sudden Death" mode, the game is now winable!!
    Having some problems making the Domination mode compatiable with custom alliances though, so progress is going slow there. I also made a small optimisation to the smoke grenades which will hopefully reduce lag.

    I am hoping to have it done before the weekend.

    I can confirm that we should see a new release soon. The first for 14 months, and quite a awesome one at that!

    Hi again everyone! Sorry for not posting, i have been offered a job in another city and will be moving there on sunday, so i've had my hands full with interviews, job training and packing. During this summer, it is likely i will have no time at all to work on WiF, so i will send the map to Worma and see if he can get it ready. Technically, it is ready for release at any time, but there are still some functions i would want included first, such as the Domination mode and proper victory conditions for the sudden death mode - currently, players can be defeated, but the remaining players don't win when all enemies are gone (which ofcourse they are supposed to).

    So yeah, that's that. I will check by tomorrow with more news.

    This game was great fun and amazingly made, if I did not know it was a Warcraft 3 map, I probably wouldn't have believed it. Although I think it could do with more things to be researched. There are not enough game changes in this game for a map so large, my friends and I played for (god knows how long) with territory constantly changing hands and alliances being forged and broken, but by 1960 there was still no clear winner and we decided to call it peace (because it was like, 3am)

    Perhaps if there was just simple armour and weapon upgrades for units and tanks (or even speed upgrades for ships) the game would have not become such a stale mate
