**THIS MOD IS DEAD** If you want to continue the mod or just want the source files, email me and I can upload them.
**SORRY**

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 out

News

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.

If any of you would have helped in mapping/texturing, I bet it wouldn't have been dead.

It still can be... un-dead, if anyone volunteers. All those models still need textures, and I kept all the models I made but didn't put in.
