I have added the news of the newest version to moddb and the dl's I think it would be better if we could get the dls on multiple sites all at the same time along with news posts. So we can build a small online community. After all that was a pretty big part of this release.

coolkid: Thanks for your efforts, however I don't think it's fair to use the screenshots of the terrain branch to promote warzone. It might take a year until that makes it into a release. People will only get disappointed. Could you remove them or add a note that this is a glimpse of what the future will bring for warzone?

Kamaze: Some suggestions to spice up our search engine rankings. I quite like the Wesnoth site (http://wesnoth.org), with the short introduction above the news items.

Keywords:
rts, rtt, real-time strategy, real-time tactics, open source, multi-player, single-player, campaign, design, research

Description:
Open source 3D real-time strategy game (RTS). Extensive singleplayer campaign and multiplayer. Research 400+ technologies and design your own units.

Blurb on frontpage (based on the one for the debian package, for which we spent quite some time finding a nice description):
In Warzone 2100 you command the forces of “The Project” in a battle to rebuild the world after mankind has almost been destroyed by nuclear missiles.

This 3D real-time strategy (RTS) and real-time tactics (RTT) game offers campaign, tutorial, multi-player and single-player skirmish modes. An extensive tech tree with over 400 different technologies, combined with the unit design system, allows for a wide variety of possible units and tactics.

Warzone 2100 was created by Pumpkin Studios, published by Eidos Interactive and is currently developed as open source by the Warzone 2100 Resurrection Project. The game is available for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X, and can be downloaded for free.

why is that ?

wz2100 is known throughout the foss game portals &
rts community for years now...

you have developers doing and releasing quality work.

you have moders, mappers, and musicians doing like wise with prolific releases
made available throughout the showcase and mod/maps bbs..

i would guess that if you looked at the distinct ip visitation web site analytics you'd
see a healthy stream of traffic but that maybe only 1% is reflected in posting.

of that 1% bout half communicate matters of interest and utility with grace and
the other half answer specific troubleshooting questions best they can.

so why is it "slow" ? and will new visitation blood resulting from any publicity
effort really make a difference as such has already been happening for awhile ?

i'm curious, what is the answer do you think ? (anyone feel free to answer.) just more publicity ?
