**THIS MOD IS DEAD** If you want to continue the mod or just want the source files, email me and I can upload them.
War of Empires is a major mod that aims to add three new races to the HW2 universe, implement global gameplay changes, and change the game in other small ways to make the gameplay faster and more fun.
In development for several years before the initial release, WoE is a mod of varied and somewhat eclectic strategies, adding, for instance, a supercannon that can fire clear across a small-to-mid sized map, an entire race based upon swarm tactics, and buildable dreadnoughts.
Made by a gamer bored with "realistic" mods, WoE has and forever will ignore many of the laws of physics and/or material sciences. The only purpose of this mod is fun and nothing but, ignoring such wastes of energy as back story or detailed scientific explanations.
All in all, if you're looking for a fast and crazy game, WoE is a great choice.
***Installation note: Patch game to latest official version. DL the latest version's .big file (usually in a .rar file, download winrar to open it). Put it into the HW2\data directory, then add "-mod WoE(vX.XX).big" to the end of a shortcut's target line.
WoEv0.6b1 is here for you to enjoy! Many hours of work have been put into making this a solid update. All of the major problems should have been fixed, but that's why it's beta. We still need texturers and beta testers if anyone would like to help, though any kind of help would be appreciated. Oh, minor point that's restated in the actual download: The option of having trails or not has been removed, due to lack of feedback. It is now trails by default, though if enough people want the option back it's not hard to re-introduce it.
Coming up, hopefully a nice forum instead of the crappy Bravenet page. Be on the lookout.
I uploaded a .big version of the mod but it'll take a while for moddb to get it downloadable, so hang in there. This version has the fixit patch...
V0.5b3 will be slightly postponed, as I had to reinstall windows and some dependencies are still missing.
Yes indeed, first playable beta good enough for the masses. Not quite what I would have liked to release, but reality and 3/5 of my brain told me to get...

Same as the trails patch, but in a big file for easier installation. Put into the HW2\data directory and add "-mod WoEv0.5b2_trails.big"...

I just noticed, like 2 months later, that the v0.5b2.rar did not have the credits items in the package. Nothing big, this is just if you want to see the...
Used to re-enable trails if you like them better than no trails. Extract to the data directory.
