Recently I bought and also played StarCraft 2. It’s a neat game, good graphics and nice story line.. but omgomgomg – how inferior that game and its user-interface is compared to Spring RTS!
So I started to play some Spring again (with Fleur and Wolf and Eifeltrampel) and I have to say… it’s still the best RTS I know!
Sadly, there are way less players active than there used to be.. I hope that changes again soon, especially because winter is coming. In the mean-time we’ve been training against a brand new AI called E323AI, written by a friend of ours – and it’s amazing! Great job, Error323 – we’ve gotten our butts kicked more than once! :D
And of course, the game still supports (and seems to have stabilized) LUA widgets and gadgets. So I’ve been fiddling a bit recently (and especially during this weekend with Eifeltrampel) with that. It has become a nice collection already. Many widgets tweaked, some enhanced or fixed. I’ve created a git-repository and uploaded everything here:
PS: I’ve been a bit busy lately, but I’m feeling confident that I would like to write some more in the near future :)
