Former Wc3:WoW lead developer, I am a freelance artist/writer that enjoys modding and even indie game development. I've done a lot of volunteer work in assisting indie games such as concept art, story design, team management, public relations, and more. Unfortunately, I cannot offer much for free anymore. If you feel interested in having me work for your game, please contact me!

StarCraft 2 is extremely limited. And Blizzard Entertainment intended it to be that way. It's just like with WarCraft III: The Frozen Throne; you can mod it, but once they roll in the expansions for StarCraft, then the full potential of modding StarCraft 2 will be revealed.

There is much more content for modders in WarCraft III than with StarCraft 2. That's just one reason why I decided not to move forward with the new engine.

Completely understandable, as well as unfortunately disappointing. The modding community and player-base of WarCraft III is dying rapidly ever since StarCraft II's release, so lack of motivation and/or interest is understandable.

Hopefully things get sorted out eventually and the project recontinues. Otherwise, good luck with whatever else you approach.

Turns out the bags system won't work. In fact, I don't think we'll be able to allow players to view their inventory AND the environment at the same time. There's a lot of possible things that can go wrong with it, so we're just going to have to stick with an inventory that takes up the entire screen; a fullscreen inventory.

There's actually two tiles being used. A darker orange cracked earth tile and a lighter orange cracked earth tile. The lighter tile is used for roads and parts of mountains, while the darker covers just about the rest. I'm thinking about finding someone to retexture the tiles though to look more accurate to World of Warcraft and to look more differentiated, since I've received a lot of feedback regarding the repetitive look our tiles have at the moment. More small little details will be added, but I will not be adding newer details that you would not find in World of Warcraft.

Oh and those big walls are orange rocky walls in World of Warcraft, so I might redo that...

Can't. It's a part of the WarCraft III engine and the only way to recode it is if we use a third-party program, which would force anyone who wants to play the Wc3:WoW campaign without problems to run the same third-party program(s). RtC's third-party programs can make it possible, but we're trying to get as much progress done as possible without the use of third-party programs.

Thanks a lot, nataliaoaks. Modding and developing games is a passion of mine that is growing more and more (Can't wait for StarCraft 2!) and just for the record, it's been over three years.

To better elaborate, the loading screens we use will not be of orcs and humans fighting nor will it be any of the default WarCraft III loading screens. Instead, we'll use the ones from World of WarCraft. For example on how these are used, lets say you're zoning into an instance; this case, we'll use Ragefire Chasm as an example instance. Instead of showing a loading screen that is similar to the one above, the actual Ragefire Chasm loading screen!

THAT is something we do not know for sure. However, it is possible with the use of a special third party program. There's a program that's been in development for a really long time called "WarSoc" which is meant to bend the limits of the WarCraft III World Editor and then some. One of its features allows the making of campaigns to be multiplayer and maps that allow players to join even after the game has started.

But in short, we simply do not know how long it will be until the program is finished - if it ever does - but at least on single player we've added what we call "Player Bots". These Player Bots are simply computer controlled 'heroes' or classes that roam the lands of Wc3:WoW doing pretty much normal things you'd see a real player doing: grinding xp, quests, ganking, etc.

At the moment, the AI is very poor for most classes, but in my opinion the Rogues are the most advanced. Sometimes when I playtest the mod, an Alliance Player Bot Rogue will suddenly pop up behind me and backstab. They go stealth, then try to surprise attack. It can be very effective when you're busy concentrating on mobs.

Both Horde and Alliance will be playable. As to whether which races and classes will be playable in the public demo we hope to release, I cannot clarify just yet. We're trying to include all races except for the Undead, Gnomes, and Dwarves. Humans and Night Elves will most likely make it in there, but we've been working hard already on Elwyn Forest and Stormwind terrains, so you can definitely expect updates about those areas later on.

Actually, in the Modern Warfare backstory, the United States is actually the side which is presumably the good side, being that they're fighting Russia for their sudden ruthless biological warfare declarations upon parts of Europe. The United States doesn't support biological or nuclear warfare (unless truly needed) and the fact that Russia is abusing the use of nuclear and biological missiles launched into other countries for destructive purposes went strongly against the policies.

Because Russia launched powerful missiles into SEVERAL countries to weaken them to perhaps conquer them easier, the United States saw the Russian Federation to be a huge threat and that aggressive force was totally necessary to overcome the war-hungry Russian dictatorship.

Sadly, Punisher_X has cancelled this project once he had taken over. But greatfully, I have taken over and have recontinued the project. So no worries. The only thing is though, is that this mod won't be a remake or tribute of NOTD. I plan on making a mod with a slightly new type of game style. Well, some of the aspects are based off of other games and mods, but it will also have it's own unique touches to it, to keep it interesting and fun to play.

So far, the only people who are a part of the team are me (Craka_J) as a terrainer and now leader once again of Apocalypse, Ragingspeedhorn whose a back-up terrainer, and most importantly, our only scripter DaFranker.

Hey guys! I've been playing BrainBread for about 3-4 years now and I've been watching BrainBread: Source's progression on websites and forums. The progress is moving very slowly in my opinion, although the outcome is very good and impressive and makes me more and more anxious to play BrainBread: Source.
Anyway, I wanted to ask you (The members whom are working on BrainBread: Source) multiple questions regarding the progress and what we can expect and so on...
1) One website says that the project is 60% complete. But here it says 40% complete. Just curious which is correct.

2) I also read somewhere that the release date is 2015. Please tell me that is a mistake!

3) What is the planned release date?

4) Will you be posting more screenshots of maps, landscapes, character models, etc. soon?

5) Will there be any new stuff in 'BrainBread: Source' that was never in BrainBread v1.2?

6) Will there be more than one boss? I think we've killed Bob the zombie mutant quite enough!

7) Will there be any new skills in BrainBread: Source?

8) Will there be any new player-characters to choose?

Actually, Punisher, if you think about it, it's not so much of a set-back anymore. If anything, the fact that we missed the release date is the set-back. I say this because in my opinion, the mod turned out alot better than before; atleast so it seems. I'll try to get some terrain done today and work on the website a bit more. I've already replaced two images in the Screenshots page and added a Fan-Art picture. I decided not to add the model pictures since we have limited image space in the Screenshots page and showing a couple models isn't much of a direct promotion towards the mod it self since we'll probably release all of these models eventually. To those who have forgotten or have not heard of the website or it's link, I'd suggest going to:
It's nothing impressive, but it holds the basic layout about the game and more information will be added later on today. I'm not positive, but I think one of our members is remaking the website with a different URL and better site layout. The link will be announced when it is ready and functioning properly.
And I also highly recommend you visit the forums often; it's probably the best way to stay updated with what is going on.
Music was added to the website, only on two pages though. (The Homepage and The Team page.)
About page is being worked on now and should have quite a bit more information added in a half-hour from now.
I've also updated The Team page by adding more people to credits.
I and the rest of the Apocalypse Modding Team greatly appreciate our support and comments. If you wish to help with JASS, Modelling, Skinning, or composing music, please contact either me at: or Punisher_X at:
