Below is some thing I posted in a random msg board. As I though about it, I realized it would be great if every spirng player had a saved bock of text which would basically be a promotion for Spring. If they had it they could easily, and with little effort spread spring as they went about their life. If we could even get an Decent/official post, that everyone could have on hand to post when ever there is a chance, that would be great.
This was my quick attempt to spread the knowledge when I realized it should be done:
Would I post that again? No. I would do it differently, as it has flaws.Free Outstanding Open source RTS engine and games !
I noticed Greycatmon's avatar Image (a heavy lazer turret from Total Annihilation)
There is an Open source gaming and moding community that has developed out of it[Total Annihilation] know as Spring. ("TA Spring" is ur best bet for searching for it") Any how, it is FREE and It harbors some of the BEST RTS play ever to have existed. The "NOTA" mod I find to be the best strategy game I have played.
You can youtube "TA spring", wikipedia it, and this site can get u started: http://spring.clan-sy.com/
Be warned the site does not have every thing organized perfectly. The best way to get information and help is with the Spring Client (the program which will connect you to Spring games and Chatting Channels)
TA Spring's Main site:http://spring.clan-sy.com/
Wikipedia Link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spring_project
There are some of the sites u would want to know about in order to get Spring Maps, Mods, and Help. The Wikipedia page has some of their links available to you. I would recommend Clicking the Spring-Protal link on the wiki page for help when u run the Spring Client for the first time.
