This is not a full conversion, rather it re-envisions Orcs and Humans to more resemble Warcraft 2. It provides a balanced melee environment that allows players to take full advantage of naval tech-trees. It also adds a hyper-aggressive race called the Lost that are unique in the RTS realm.

Lost:

-Unbridled Frenzy renamed to Frenzy and is now a passive that increases attack damage every attack as long as an enemy unit is within attack range
-Terror checks for research
-Dark Retreate is now Dark Fold, found on the Ravager
-Incursus removed, I found it had no real purpose as it was orignally the medium naval unit as sort of morphed into a semi-useful air unit. Four air units is too many.
-Stygian Monarch gains Phase
-Abyss now requires Parapet

All:
-Crystal Lake: Adjusted cliff height so units are slightly farther away
-Crystal Lake: Line of Sight blockers added around exterior creep camps to give them more purpose
-Warrior and Elementalist removed. Promethian Crusher, Burster, and Vessel added. My goal is make mercenary units something people actually want to buy.
-Tempered Myrmidon added to Tavern
-Formation ranks adjusted
-Paradise Shoals:  Players set to FFA, Marketplace replaced with Mercenary Camp, slight terrain changes to improve naval pathing

Fixes:

Human:
-Footman model now correctly loads after Refined Smithing is researched
-Retribution Wagon description corrected

All:
-Sheep, Arcane Despository, Packbeast, and Void Aide no longer included in Assault

Cosmetic Changes:

Human:
-Cleansing Beams now displays lightning effect on first cast, thanks to Maker

All:
-Voting options are now integrated into starting halls via a spellbook
-Gold Mine texture removed
-When playing as NE (Human) tech tree precentages now show correctly in score screen
-Neutral heroes button location moved to avoid conflict with racial hero hotkeys

2/15/14

-Dematerialize mana cost reduced from 80 to 60
-Hopper now has Ale Screen
-Soul Imitation has been replaced with Resistant Armor which provides hero like armor against magic damage. Negative effects will have the same duration as they would on heroes. Soul Imitation was not providing a racial benefit as it was intended to.
-Demolition Team now has Resistant Armor (racial ability)
-Thors Might replaced with research option Refined Smithing
-Lumber Mill/Blacksmith upgrades re-divided
-Footmen now have Defend by default, % chance increased to 50% from 30%, non-reflected damage taken decreased from 50% to 25%
-Sheep stock maximum reduced from 4 to 3
-Long Rifles merged in Marksmanship, gold cost increased from 100 to 150

Lost:
-Conflagration replaced with Corpse Burn
-Reformation max healed reduced from 25 per second (625) to 10 per second (250)
-Essence now provides a 10% life steal when off blight. This is a further incentive to be aggressive.
-Dark Retreat and Reformation now have a cast range of 10000, Reformation is now an 650 area target spell for 185 mana that lasts 15 seconds
-Reprisal now a starting ability and deals 25% of melee attack damage back to the enemy (can be upgraded to 33%), Terror must be researched
-Toxic Carapace no longer returns damage
-Corpse Burn duration reduced from 15 to 10 seconds
-Ravager movement speed reduced to 90 from 125
-Derelict movement speed reduced from 200 to 150
-Cede redone. It now generates a copy of a target organic non-hero non-neutral unit. You are required to have the food cost of the target unit available. It does not transfer racial abilities, upgrades, or buffs. The copy will gain Essence.
-Corrus food cost increased to 2
-Razor food cost increased to 3
-Consume has mana cost and cooldown
-Scourge was replaced with Desecrator and Nightmare removed from summon list on Derelict

All:
-Heroes now have Assault rather than support air units

-Footman model removed due to animation issues

Lost:
-Collateral Destruction references Scorch instead of Immolation
-Terminus Cruxs can be repaired
-Terror chance and duration are now correct in the description
-Derelict now directly summons units rather than using a spellbook. This was done as there was no way around the mana cast issues inherent to control groups and spellbooks. The result is a much more user friendly unit.

-Stygian Bastille references Desecrator instead of Leech
-Noxium cast range adjusted (It was set too low and interfered with casting)
