Announcements: Diorama 1.1.1 and a simple AI mod

Post by florian » 29 May 2009, 19:15

We have just released two items: Diorama 1.1.1, and a simple AI mod which adds a third technology branch to stock AI.
You can find the releases on our website: http://warzone2100.org.uk

In particular,
You can get Diorama 1.1.1 here: http://warzone2100.org.uk/wmt-1.1.1.tar.bz2
You can get the AI mod version 1.0 here: http://warzone2100.org.uk/fai-1.0.wz

Description of the simple AI mod
The simple AI mod works best in a large team game 3v5 or 4v4. The new branch is designed to combat players that turtle a lot and play "tower defence". Your results may vary :)

Changelog for Diorama 1.1.1
Instead of writing a bunch of files into ~/.warzone-2.2, we now write a single .wz map archive into ~/.warzone-2.2/maps. Also, the addon.lev file within is much more complete, so you can play tier 2 and tier 3 games as well now.

Initial support for global features: You can choose between Hotspot, Wasteland, Lake and Continent.
The following is an example of the 'hotspot' and 'lake' global feature:

A full description of each feature along with screenshots illustrating them can be found in the manual: http://warzone2100.org.uk/manual-diorama.html

Dev NOTE! Make sure the filename that you use in the input box is all lower case, it must match the map filename that this utility produces, or else the map can't be transferred to other people.

Wow... you guys are doing such fantastic work that I'm being tempted like never before to
run a Linux partition on my new Win dev box. :D Very inspiring indeed.

Regards, whipper :cool:

Sweet. Thanks in advance, & all the best with your exams. :)

I think most Win platform fans of the game will dl and there will
be hundreds of new maps as a result this time next year.

As much as I've enjoyed making my own HMs and using EW
over the years I look forward to putting all the annoying quirks
of 32EW behind me and tinkering with the maps generated by
Diorama - it looks so fun. :D.

Florian, you may want to throw up a warning/error on the map size, if it is higher than 250x250.
Also, you may want to make sure the name of the map doesn't start with a number. (don't ask. :stressed: )

Oh, and the road/tracks should be fixed now in trunk...

Can't wait for Panorama. Go florian!

Again, precompiled builds would be nice.
Bring back...ducks!

You've apparently forgotten to turn up texture resolution. ;)

I've started preliminary work on that now. Still gathering ideas/requirements and working out a good concept for an editor that does not devolve into placing each tile separately.

Excellent - the next release will have roads enabled again :)

Florian, you may also want to change the write directory, for the maps, for trunk, it is now /.warzone2100-trunk/maps
and it ends here.

What can I say ???

Bloody good work everyone, made an old WZ2100 player young again.

Command and Conquer, obsolete compared with WZ, the C&C guys need to look here for new inspiration, they sure can learn a lot from the Ressurection guys.

Thanks for re-incarnating a truly epic game, now where`d I put those hellstorm tanks???
