WIP WoFRP Roleplaying sandbox map - successor to SotDRP (source avaliable)


Vastly intelligent whale-like being from the stars
WoFRP - no, I'm not sure what it stands for. It's probably something dumb.
About two years ago I started on a project called WoFRP. It's a roleplaying sandbox map for WarCraft III, like SotDRP (which I am one of the authors of), except over nine thousand times better. Except I didn't finish it.

Some of the implemented features include:
- No selection bug (I believe it was SyncSelections() that was causing it).
- Ability to chain commands (eg. "spawn 4 marine; size 50; color pink" spawns a pink midget marine, all in a single line of code.), similar to CortexRP.
- Can create your own commands using 'alias' (again, similar to CortexRP).
- Can search for any model, unit, projectile, ability, item, command, whatever name (like CortexRP).
- Can attach any model in the game to units.
- OOC, IC chat and command logs displayed in a multiboard.
- Anti-grief stuff (I think the double flamestrike crash I haven't got around to fixing yet, and maybe something involving Avatar).
- More powerful commands in general.
- Much cleaner behind the scenes (no more GUI rubbish), mostly written in Zinc (with some vJASS).
- Prototype save/load system that would allow you to save/load builds from one game to another, allowing you to keep and share your creations. It uses the Preloader bug to write text to your hard drive (the 'save'). This text is a list of commands that, when entered, will recreate your build - presumably you would use a 3rd party tool (like a chat macro) to enter all the commands in, but I never got around to writing a 3rd party tool or finishing this functionality (I think it mostly works though).
- Some other stuff, but I really cbf trying to make a full list. Go ingame and type help for a list of commands, or "help 'commandname'" for information on that specific command.

So how unfinished is this map?
- Almost finished, but I don't have the energy to be bothered to finish it.
- Primarily lacking polish, in the form of tutorials, etc, to help players learn the new commands.

You can download the unprotected map as well as some other stuff here:

So what's the catch?
- All my assets have been licensed under the Open Software License v3.0 (OSL-3.0) (http://opensource.org/licenses/OSL-3.0).
- If you want to derive something from my work, you have to license your derivative under the same license and make an open source copy (an unprotected map) available for others to modify.
- Also you'll need to set up NewGen + Zinc preprocessor if you want to be able to compile the map, and optionally GMSI to use some scripts I wrote to help with object data creation.

It doesn't work! / I have a question! / I want to collaborate with you! / All your base are belong to me!
- You can post a reply in this thread, but I can't guarantee I'll respond in a timely manner. I'll only check it infrequently, if even that.
- You could also send a PM, but I only check those infrequently.
- If you really want to contact me, send me an email at praetor.narks@gmail.com and I'll be sure to read it within a day or so.
- As for my current project, I'm working with Steel_Stallion (creator of Steel's D&D and XRP) on a Neverwinter Nights 2 roleplaying server called Port of Shadows, which can be found at http://talesofamn.pw/ - and yes, I do realize the name of the website is wrong (for now, we're renaming the project).

  • No one is chatting at the moment.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Yeah that's a nice feature. The last one I posted I just typed "More here:" and pasted in the full link so it would do that.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Also fixed a bug, where I prevented the CPU fans from spinning wildly if I reverse the order of rendering and updating function calls in Pokemon Walking
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Is that going to be a full game now tom?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    what is this Ghan? https://enterprise.ghannet.com/ you are totally holding out on us my friend
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Not mine, I just ran the server. They let the domain expire but it was a cool project so I kept it alive there.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Used to be enterpriserpg.com I think.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    If you go to the world editor tutorials site and click the starcraft link it takes you there :)
  • Ghan Ghan:
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I forgot about that alias name. (The full URL still went to the correct site.) That should be fixed.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Silkroad Forums site really needs help.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Its software has been out of support since 2017.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    The woes of using custom styles....
  • The Helper The Helper:
    does anyone still use silk road forums?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It's about as active as here I'd say. Not much going on.
  • Wizard Wizard:
    I think it doesn't help that the silk road game isn't as popular any more I think. The only MMO I play these days is FFXIV like most other people I know.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I checked a status page for players and it says the game has 500 daily players.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I cannot believe that site is still going I wonder if Ryoko is involved with it at all would love to talk to him again and see what he is up to
  • The Helper The Helper:
    my oldest daughter failed her driving test today for her license she is 22 and yes I have been driving her everywhere her whole life
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Now they are blaming me on Facebook for her failure LOL I am accepting it because it is my failure I am her driving teacher even though she had certified driving instruction from the best place in town I for some reason cannot teach her how to drive this is frustrating
  • jonas jonas:
    I didn't get my license until I was 25
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Back in the old days when I was getting a license people were getting them at 16 yrs old and many were getting hardships so they could get them earlier. Almost nobody did not drive when they were able. Nowadays though....
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Why drive when there's Uber Eats?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I hope Varine is OK have not heard from him in a while.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Diablo 2 Resurrected launching in 9 days.
