Luckily This Wreckage is much better built than When the Freedom Slips Away, so it’s much less buggy on the scripting level. Unluckily, it contains a whole heap of custom models and data that Reforged doesn’t seem to like. Sigh. No rest for the wicked, huh?
This is a bit overdue because I was sort-of waiting for Reforged to stabilise a bit and… uh… well, since the dev team has apparently been dismantled, I guess this is as stable as it’s going to get! So behold: This Wreckage Gold with a load of fixes and small tweaks! … and a whole heap of unfixable “known issues”. Double sigh.
This Wreckage Gold
The primary issue is that the ability selection system does not work anymore, due to bugs that have been introduced to the Engineering Upgrade ability. However, there is an interesting way of determining whether you’re running a newer version of WC3 available at the Hive so I’ve added a simple “Reforged or not?” check which swaps out the full ability selection system for a standard set. Thus the map will continue to be playable, but it won’t be the full experience, which you can of course get by playing in Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne version 1.26.
