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).

    I was hoping you were going to say you wanted to be a cook and wished to open up a Food Truck there are so many opportunities for that here
  • The Helper The Helper:
    you can only open the bar if you sell food and a food truck in the parking lot counts
  • The Helper The Helper:
    here in houston
  • The Helper The Helper:
    most bars are struggling to build food prep and even some I know are doing there own food trucks
  • The Helper The Helper:
    but yeah man you should come to Houston there is so much more opportunity here than San Antonio. Just look at all the homeless people on the Riverwalk and downtown there you cannot even walk down the street without getting mobbed them
  • The Helper The Helper:
    check out this place apparently it is the best roommate site out there roommates.com lol
  • Varine Varine:
    The homeless people reminded me of New York
  • Varine Varine:
    I'll check it out, my lease expires in like a few months so I need to figure something out.
  • Varine Varine:
    I tried to open a food truck in Sandpoint a few years ago but the city said no, then like two years later they passed new laws to encourage it and gave them all fucking tax breaks and shit. And at that point I didn't have enough money to go buy one so I was way too late to the game once other cities realized they could just bring their existing truck there, or sell their brick and mortar.
  • Varine Varine:
    I do like food trucks though, they're way more fun than restaurants and usually I also get some of that tip money there.
  • Varine Varine:
    Restaurants are really hard if you don't have a back up source of income to fund them sometimes, in my experience most owners either got really really lucky, had existing money that allowed them to buy an already successful one, or they have family money to fall back on for loans. It's few and far between to see very inspiring success stories where the person actually got it through hard work and perseverance. I thought about opening one lots and I always just end up not thinking it'll work. I would much rather just find someone that has that money and go work for them
  • The Helper The Helper:
    i am not talking about opening a brick and mortar I am talking about food trucks though I have seen some brick and mortar mexican places open up during covid that are doing good because there food is awesome!
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Food trucks are killing out here because Bars cannot open unless they sell food and the governor ok'd the use of a food truck in front as serving food
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Just not enough food trucks
  • The Helper The Helper:
    a buddy of mine just opened up a food truck and he is killing it but he is a great cook and has awesome food right in the middle of the pandemic too food trucks are immune to pandemic because they are take out in Texas you will always be able to get take out or delivery
  • The Helper The Helper:
    He is in the different food facebook groups in houston and posts videos of him making his food
  • The Helper The Helper:
    he is killing it
  • jonas jonas:
    @Varine with the restaurants, there surely is a lot of luck and hard work but most restaurants fail because they suck. Flair isn't right, economics not well thought through, food is mediocre or sucks, location is bad, etc. If you're thinking about opening one, make sure you're looking at the stories of those that would be playing at your level, don't let your hopes be dragged down by all the subpar restaurants out there.
  • jonas jonas:
    I'm a bit worried about the future of data science, there's an influx of incompetent people hired by incompetent managers, that can't last. But I'm sure smart data scientists will always be useful and hireable. Same as smart security people.
  • jonas jonas:
    My sister in law worked in a vegan food truck, the owners were also making a killing, added several trucks and opened two restaurants over 5 years
  • Ghan Ghan:
    The CompTIA stuff is pretty much crap unfortunately. The places that ask for those low-level certs aren't likely places you want to work. For IT you really want a degree, but in the meantime you need to figure out some way to learn the skills. Cybersecurity is really hot right now so competition is fierce.

    I realized I don't have anything much to say, other than "Good luck!". Compared to other places, I'm just very lucky we didn't have a lot of surges of cases coming in.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    My daughter just got back from school at Georgetown TX, outside of Austin and said there were 100 cases in the last week but she also said nobody was wearing a mask anywhere so people mask up and stay safe!
  • thewrongvine thewrongvine:
    happy thanksgiving folks!
