I know its been a long time since this project had any new updates and news. I decided to take a break from the project for a while back in Jan of 2008, as life outside of the project changed alot and made time to work on this project very difficult. But a coupler of days ago, i decided to updated my Warcraft 3: TFT to the latest patch (126.96.36.19972) to find none of my maps from 2007/2008 worked anymore after the update. The changes blizzard made in the latest patch have blocked all my custom maps from working not just in multiplayer mode but also single player mode as well . So I've been tickering with the maps again and i might be able to release a new maps pack with new maps that will work with the new patch.
So what does this mean for the project. Well I've had to make a few changes to allow the maps to work with the new patch and unfortunately I've had to remove a few essential triggers from the maps, most notably the Protoss building build placement system, which is now gone. Also the Protoss Carrier/Interceptor system had to also be removed.
On the positive side, I've been reviewing alot of the latest Starcraft II unit/building specs and have began altering the units/buildings/tech tree/upgrades and abilities of all the races to somewhat resemble the changes in the current alpha version of Starcraft II. I've also been creating new icons for the maps which will hopefully complete the User Interface further then it previously was.
Also i never released the latest version of the 'Boot Camp' campaign map which was almost finished before i took a break from the project. So this will be released along with the new maps.
As always thank you all for following me and my project for all these years. I hope this news will encourage fans to come back and feel as excited as i am to continue this projects great work.
