    I know it's a little bit to early to talk about this, but the new expansion seems to have what i needed for mod (i hope they'll put paratroopers).

    So i would continue work on warlords - probably the phase two would be finished both on warlords and beyound the swords (i'm not sure if all the things could be implemented to warlords version). but further development - phase three - would be on beyound the swords only - that's my opinion what do you think?

    I'll say stick with warlords, after the mod is ready for warlords completely then convert it to beyond the swords and add some cool stuff in. :p

    Edit: Now that i have thinked this trought, well i'll buy the new expansionpack of course so it wont really matter too much for me if its in warlords or beyond the swords. But if im thinking from gameplay and fun side, it could be better with all the new features so..... maybe the phase 3 option is good..

    It depends on many things: ie. the price of BtS, it's quality, etc., but I voted: "Should be converted to Beyound the Swords ASAP"

    since you're working on phase 2 right now, i'd have phase 2 for warlords and an update/patch if possable to BtS later. then with phase 3 make it for BtS

    What about the reported WW2 mod in BtS, that won't scare you off converting will it?

    I think i'll borrow some grpahics from BtS in Phase Two - so the major update (to phase 2 or just 1.5 would be late summer - after releasing bts

    I start to think that better idea would be to make it on BTS earlier than on on Warlords 2.13
    @ Dale - nope :) a little bit competition is always good thing :)

    That wasn't very good though..

    Great idea asioasioasio! I hope I never have to play warlords again (same with most people I think) so a conversion to BtS is needed :)

    Ouch! Did you try with the add-on? Or just the release versions (which you're right, wasn't that good).

    That could be difficult I think (the sound xml files look complicated.. to me anyway). The sound effects you guys found were great though so they have to go in the BTS version.

    Just the release version

    yup it's difficult - the sound should be ok - nothing weird in .xml
    i think i'll make it once again - sometimes it helps :)
