Maps, Modded maps and updates on SirCakes modding stuff.
I will be taking a hiatus from openra, for at least a year. But I found one final unfinished map I wanted to share with you.
The Idea was to create a map which tells you what you are doing wrong (from the perspective of optimal competitive play) in a 1v1 situation. For example not deploying your mcv fast enough, not building units while floating chash or having "ineffective" harvesters. Planned later even with voice comments of well known casters. I think it should run on release-20180307.
I didn't want to create this map alone and several attempts at working together with other people and high level players failed (because they are slouches ). So I put that one aside.
I will not provide any support whatsoever but if you are interested, then do whatever you want with it!
(I will only read PMs)

I have finally returned! My one-year-hiberation has ended. To be honest I was looking forward to get modding again
First thing first, I wanted to update my old modmaps so they will continue to work in the future.
I was pleasently surprised how easy the update process was, I had expected a lot more hassle!.. Guess not much did change ;P
I noticed a bunch of improvements, obviously
So here is a slightly changed UOEv008 with inspirations from the remaster:
Changes since UOEv007:
- Changed naval move speed on water to 80% (-20%), the openRA defacto standard for "normal" speed. Also, Naval units in the original were much slower and it did not seem reasonable that a medium tank is slower than a destroyer.
- Fixed price reduction calculation error Radar dome is now really only 17% cheaper.
- If you are interested the attached text filecontains a full list of all changes (Sir, theres alot of them)
I will continue modding for some indefinite time, my focus will be on Dune2k again so keep an eye out for that!
Glad to be back,
Check out Dune2k-Advanced on my moddb page!
part two of my map update was much more work than the UOE maps! Didn't expect that!
Anyway, it's done
Dive into a short visit to Dune with those vsMission maps, which are all non-standard to play. You play vs another player,
but everyone has their own, asymmetric objectives.
By far the best one is https://resource.openra.net/maps/26271/, which can be played 1v1, 2v1 or 2v2.
Quick five minute or less 1v1 battles on https://resource.openra.net/maps/35913/, can you figure out how to win as each faction?
If you are now hooked, there are two more 1v1 vsMissions:
and one 3 player free-for all with an interesting twist https://resource.openra.net/maps/36010/
Have fun !
