Regarding SEO: Yep, we really need to work on SEO for www.openra.net. I realise that OpenRA is an engine, but if people struggle to find the mods/games that use the engine then they will struggle to find the engine itself. I searched Google for a few obvious strings: 'command and conquer', 'tiberia...

On a side note, there is still a $100 bounty for the RA1 campaign and $128 on the TD campaign.

I just discovered really nice civilian vehicles and ships made by MadHQ (scroll down to see the ships):

The good part is his permission and FAQ pages on his website. :)


EDIT: I just found out that you already knew about them. link

Hi old_malcolm. I think developers will be happy to meet you on IRC. As jaymanxyz said, http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=openra is the best way to join our IRC channel. Of course, you can also use the IRC client of your choice (pidgin, chazilla, thunderbird...) server : chat.freenode.net:6697 c...

I think OpenRA suffers from the fact that it is free - hear me out. When somebody buys a game, they put an investment into it, and chances are they will play it unless it /really/ sucks. In this case, OpenRA is a free game, the biggest investment is a couple of minutes and the bandwidth to download...

If asset downloading is dropped, it will just make installs harder, I have no idea why...
