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.

Thanks to Remixer and infrenus I have some exciting new terrain and models for you to play with. The Lost are becoming a truly refined race, and I have been continually differentiating Orcs and Humans. Enjoy!
