Just released another version of DRTS.

Picking Maps

I improved the UI to preview maps before starting to play with bots. Now it is easier to find a map you like and see what you are getting into before starting the game.

Camera Controls

In addition to earlier input methods, you now can control the camera also via keyboard: To pan, use arrow keys, for zoom plus and minus. To improve onboarding, I added buttons for controlling the camera. This visual addition to the UI should help new players notice that the field of view can be changed.

Under The Hood

  • To prepare for competitive games, the map generator was improved for exact symmetry of edges in generated maps.
  • Pathfinding now yields optimal paths in more cases.
