I was hoping someone who was knowledgeable enough in spring's engine would take up the call to make this game playable with other people since I don't know how and don't have the time to figure out all that's involved. Since that didn't happen I'm just releasing what I've got. I put in about at least 60 hours a week for 7 months straight on this thing, and half of that was just learning how to do stuff through trial and error. It would be a shame if it just died without a shot. It's pretty cool and I hope you enjoy it as incomplete as it is.
This is the whole playable game:https://drive.google.com/open?id=1iHEdkTfW0ZVbv6bSdCtEVOOO5BMbdMwL
Unzip this to some directory like c:\3W or something.
To play this you must tell windows to disable all of its incoming and outgoing communication for the 3w.exe in your firewall settings. If you do not do this the game will autoupdate and mess up the files and it wont work and you will have to delete 3w and recopy the files all over again.
Because I don't know how to get this thing working with current spring engine and multiplayer, it's singleplayer only, so you all can try it out. You can play with CAI or circuitAI brutal. circuitAI plays better but is known to crash once it reaches underwhelming numbers. Also, CAI doesn't use air units well, it lands them in stupid places. You can also play against chickens :)
If you just want to play 3W then you DON'T need the following file:https://drive.google.com/open?id=18Dhy8PaQb-kNk1QH4c6KrX9nvYNOJfzH
It's basically just 3w's files in a single sdz. If you were wanting to make this multiplayer possible this is the game's content all organized into one file that goes into the games directory.
All I ask is to be credited as the original designer/developer. If I were to see there was a decent enough following for this mod/game I would likely finish it up with the rest of the planned units and features. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to reach me.
