Engines of War brings you nonstop Real Time Tactics action from the first second of the game: You are the pilot of one of the massive combat vehicles known as "Engines". Lead it (and lesser units) into battle together with your team - and destroy your enemies and their base! Engines is inspired by DotA's gameplay, but freely redistributable and modifiable content on the Spring Engine.

Notice:
You may have noticed 83.0 never went live. It had some crucial bugs dragon in it, which absorbed all dev power. But at the end the dragon was slew and the princess is safe.

Release Message
Yeah, it was long ago that Spring 0.82 was released. 1 year, 2 months & 23 days to be precise or just 449 days. Much water ran down the rivers. Tunisia, Egypt & Libya freed themselves from their despots. Nuclear power mocked official estimates of risk probability again. Duke Nukem Forever was released. Pigs learned to fly.

And now: 84.0 finally gets released!

Again, thanks everyone for your contributions!
This time, special thanks go to SpliFF for his ASSIMP implementation and daftalx for his MacOSX ambitions & supplying us a buildbot client for it.

Download links:

It's also the first release with a (experimental) MacOSX build.
For the time being you can either use an experimental SpringLobby build here or weblobby.

Major changes:

  • ASSIMP support (not 100% finished yet)
  • EFX/EAX support (sound reverb)
  • AI Interface pure-ification
  • Many speedups (and twice as many slowdowns)

Thanks for all the comments and interest :)!

@Vermillion, I'd not heard of that Engine till you just showed it, so we can hardly say it's been considered :P. Most of our team have come with some experience with the Spring Engine, so that gives us an inclination - but looking at that damn shiny video you linked, I'll definitely be checking out the Men of War Engine! (I thought you were kidding me at first with that name). Since our intention is to create a free/open source game, though whether or not the Engine is open source) might be the sticky point.

It is a commercial license. So no, it will not work for what we intended.

I have seen some similar videos before. Do you know the name of that mod? I wonder if they could use some model help, as I worked on the Battletech mod on the spring engine that did not ever get finished, and I have a lot of models lying around.

Battletech: In the Shadow of Giants. Heres the mods home Digitalmindsoft.eu Im currently waiting with baited breath on their completion of the mod, hopefully leading to them releasing some sort of guide on getting mechs into men of war as decently as they have without having to cut my teeth on the way.

Thing is there progressing pretty slowly, so im contemplating taking things into my own hands an just geting on with it.

I also remember a whole bunch of other talented people like yourself offering to help them and for unknown reasons they denied there help. Was pretty wierd, I guse they had there reasons.

@SeanHeron For some reason men of war is still pretty underground even tho its one of the best games Ive ever come across.

Im not entirely sure if the engine is open source or not, Im pretty sure its not tho, which is a bit of a shame. I dont think its auctually called the men of war engine either lol. Thats just me being lazy, the name of the official game made by 1C Company is Men of War, the engine is called something else which slips my mind. The mod community On DMS is excellent, you should be able to find all your awnsers in relation to MoW and its engine there.

Btw loving the model design in this mod, has that balance between sophisticated anime tech and burtal, dirty warfare vibes.
