Recently MapConvNG was added to the spring git repository. MapConvNG is a tool to create maps for the spring engine.

This introduced some windows build errors which were recently fixed by hokomoko by updating mingwlibs64.

For now the win64 build is basicly untested, so feedback is welcome:

official spring spring build with mapconvng

A short documentation of mapconvng exists at the wiki.

It is that time of the year again which is a good opportunity to thank the people of this community for their involvement whether by playing, testing, developing or contributing in any other way. You are the reason why this project is still live and kicking after so many years.

In the past year we've observed Zero-K's successful launch on steam, two LD games (with another coming this weekend!) and ongoing work and releases by many of our games (BA, TechA, S44, Evo, MF to name a few).

On the engine front there were 1761 commits since 104.0, the GL4 migration is in an advanced state and save/load support is fully implemented.

Next year? It's all up to you! We live in exciting times :)

Happy Birthday!

as already announced earlier, on 8. April we will set the minimal required spring version to >=104.0 for hosting with a botflag.


In short:

- using older spring versions blocks development
- older spring versions contain crash / DoS bugs
- we need to look forward: newer versions have more features / cleaner code / scale better / are more friendly to game devs.
- also its spring!

Yee-haw! :regret:

Metal Factions is an evolving RTS game that started as yet another TA mod but since 2014 has been moving away from TA IP to a more original game with decent graphics and great gameplay.

Besides gameplay similarities with other TA-derived or Supreme Commander games, some of its major features are:
- FOUR factions with many dozens of unique units each: AVEN, GEAR, CLAW and SPHERE
- Commanders with several morph options to fit into different play styles and which can be easily revived
- Upgrades that improve players' units in different ways and allow players to optimize their strategies
- Its own AI, MFAI, with three difficulty levels. The "Brutal" mode should provide a challenge to even veteran RTS players!
- A dedicated 1v1 ladder
