R8Reader

You can put the PNG pieces together to prepare for RA.Utilities.exe --SHP: convert {4109..4150}.png +append mcvdeploy.png This requires ImageMagick (and a bash script that I will start working on right now). I am currently working on a DATA.R8 parser because I don't think that uploading pr...

Maybe there is a way to automatize the process. How did you do it anyway?

Thief

It would be nice if the thief could be added again but not to only steel money, but also units and technology. Refinery/Silo : steel money, maybe few dollars over time to really bankrupt the enemy or steel the next ore truck that unloads here Barracks/Factory/Port/Construction Yard/Tech/Repair : ste...

As Microsoft XNA Game Studio 4.0 and their XNA Framework is based on .Net and C# I don't think it is too slow for games. I had some performance issues when playing with bots on an Island scenario and they could not reach me via the land way. The pathfinding algorithm made the game repeatedly pause f...

I talked to Chris. He might do the game mechanics coding if someone converts the Raw D2k graphics into compatible SHPs. If you look in the games source code history there were plans to support Dune2000s .r8 file format: https://github.com/pchote/OpenRA/blob/7b10221572bbde9ece0010cafb97209367b67bef/O...

Dune2k SHPs

Already created the windtrap (or at least tried to). It worked in the dev mod "palettetest" (from git) if you rename it as powr.shp and add it like the MCV you can replace the power plant in RA. However transparency at the borders did not work well. I did not use the RA.Utility.exe because I did not...
