Which version of TA:Spring is the most played?

Postby AdmiralZeech » 20 Jul 2017, 12:41

Off topic is a bit lonely these days. So just posting something I was curious about.

TA:Spring has a bunch of different "games" available. Regarding the ones based on TA, which is the best/most popular/most developed?

If anyone here still follows that scene...

The SpringRTS community has been somewhat stable but the player numbers are low, with a few dozen playing simultaneously on peak times, usually weekend afternoons.

The most popular games are Balanced Annihilation (BA) and Zero-K (ZK). But several other games like EVO, Spring-1944, Tech-Annihilation, XTA and Metal Factions are played at least a few times per day and/or being actively developed.

The ZK community uses a separate server, and has been making significant progress recently with a new lobby client, AI players and single player missions.

I'm the developer of Metal Factions, btw.

Hi raar, the Metal Factions has 498 units ! in database. That's an impressive amount...of work.

Yea, most of the models are relatively simple, but it was still a huge amount of work.

I had great hopes for SpringRTS back in the days. But mods with potential like Imperial Winter never got finished and it never had the glamour of Forged Alliance. And the community seemed to much split up into the different mods. And since it's C++ only I never really bothered looking into development.
