A approach to create a mod of the old strategy game Z (Bitmap Brothers, 1996). Working Production Buildings dialogs and change Sector triggers.
I remade Territory Contest on SC2 :
To answer your question, I didn't make an AI to force units to use roads.
Thx a lot! Did you manage to implement the Pathing system (A*-like), so the robots would prefer roads over desert terrain?
I made a Warcraft III map inspired by Z :
The game uses Warcraft III units, this is no with robots and vehicles but the gameplay based on territories and building time is kept.
If that can help you :)
Thx for trying to help, but I am currently working on another map. I´ll don´t know when I´ll take this project back up. I´ve also seen some other guys doing Z mods (something like Zed or Zod), maybe you´ll check out their projects page.
I´ve uploaded the map on this site. Feel free to upload it to battle.net, to check things out.
Long time since anything happend here. The only way I think of is to add create regions over the roads, and whenever a unit is issued an order, it checks which region is the closest one, and orders the unit to move there first. But I don't know if there is a way to get the posistion or the size of the region.
Can you maybe upload the map to battle.net, I'm interested to see the current state of the map.
I'm afraid I dont know any programming. But you should ask on the forum pages regarding this.
I would really like to finish this project. But I am stuck at the moment recreating the pathfinding AI of the original game. Anyone with some good ideas is welcome to join the project
How's this project coming along?
"You're Hopeless"xD It would be awesome if you import the audio.
Are you planning to import any of the original soundtracks/audio from the old Z btw?
Would be awesome to have the old character images pop up saying things like, "tough's reporting" "WE'R UNDER FIRE; AAAAAAA" etc like it was in the original :D
i love the original game.
i have created a z map for warcraft 3 but wasnt very good, hope this one is going to be better
Awesome poster lol.
Which sone are you going to publish the game?
Would be awesome to get it in EU as well
Its gonna be as close as possible to the original game. :)
Are you gonna make it a mix between Starcraft 2 and Zed? Or it it gonna be completely Zed?
Anyway, looking good so far! keep it up.
ohoh! gief a good version of this :D
