Spring needs a serious shake-up, either way ... if you ever plan on having self-sustainable community for MP games.

Re: Newbie's qestions

No one mentioned NOTA here ... it seems like people hold a grudge against it. Too bad that it has best gameplay out there and least corrupted player base, even if smallish ...

Re: Skirmish AI: E323AI 3.19.1

Just tested development version of AI vs 3xRAI on Victoria Crater map. With fast teching up it lost (stalled). Without it - wins. :? Because RAI is passive-defensive. It basically plays like a turtling noob, giving every possible opportunity to rape it in early and middle game. Bad benchmark, try 1...

I find this one more fitting, except replace 'ETW' with 'BA+DSD'.

Re: Opinion about Spring

Easiest way, which pretty much anyone can do, to get more players is to play a lot yourself and not be a total asshole while doing it. Helps too if it's not 8v8 games you're playing When I used to play, 2v2-4v4 were most entertaining ones, preferably with landmass mixed with water to allow for diff...

Re: Opinion about Spring

On one hand you cry for the lack of fresh blood to keep the healthy community (real player/smurf ratio, reasonable player/troll ratio etc.), on the other hand when the newbie actually joins the pack he is greeted with insults and elitism. Well, the reality is that newbies have nobody to play with on...

Fantastic map. Reminds me of Sudden Strike series, it's colouring and style.

Re: Kings & Castles (by Chris Taylor)

Wow, I have lost more respect for Chris Taylor than I thought possible... That's just him being a dork, if you really want to lose respect, try playing SupCom2. Except the fact that SupCom was never really meant to improve/build upon TA. It's completely different game, with different gameplay prior...

Re: Book I Will Never Finish: Leveraging Your Slacker

Lazy people are good at being lazy... Lazyness IMO has a lot to do with bad parenting. If you were not imbued with the proper habits and values and had nobody to look up to that was a motivated and productive you will have lower chances of being productive yourself. The laziness is a natural step o...

So much forum politics these days, on the Spring forums.

Re: C&C Tiberian Sun for free

Seems like good way to get myself interested in the series ... thanks for the link! Will check out previous installments too.

Still, a have a feeling it won't beat my good, old Sudden Strike :-) (sequels sucked so much pfff)

Re: Skirmish AI: E323AI v3.14.3 - High Templar

No haven't!!! Just extremely busy, was even during holidays. I don't wanna make any promises as to when I'll have a new version but I'm working on it. I'm active modder of other games so I fully understand it. Giving a date and then having it stalk you till you do your stuff sucks, and usually 'it'...
