Tip: Using Lunar Magic's "Change Properties in Sprite Header" dialogue, you can adjust the sprite slots in which sprites can spawn. For example, by using a sprite memory setting that doesn't use slot 07, you can easily prevent Reznor breaks in your hack.

An improved version of the old Gridlock Wars, now with actual starting! (hopefully)


Gridlock Wars is a grid-based war inspired by both War and traditional RTS games like Starcraft.

The game is based around a medium-sized map with a grid. At the beginning of each game, each player picks one spot out of the ones on the map to start at. Then, players have a choice of either choosing a predefined tech tree, or creating their own using a template provided.

The game runs off of three currencies, each of which can be given custom names by the player. These currencies are:

- A basic currency for resources, default is "Supplies"
- A Technology level, represented by a number 0-5. Some items may require a certain tech level to make/research.
- Population count, default is "Population"

I keep track of all three currencies.

The Template can be found here. (It comes with a guide too! :D)


1. I define all currency totals, not you. First attempt to do so will simply be dismissed, but repeated offenses yield strikes.
2. Only claim one starting point, and everyone starts with no more than 2000 resources and no tech.
3. You may define your own prices for things, but try to keep them balanced, and remember that I can change them at any time.
4. There is no negative resources, tech, population, etc. If you don't have the tech, resources, or population for something, you can't get it.
5. I have all right to tweak your tech trees as necessary to make the game fun and fair for everyone.
6. This game runs off a 3-strike ban system- Each offense is one strike, and when you hit four, you get removed from the game.
7. Oh, and watch out for the Modkill Hammer- Trying something you shouldn't will cause it to come down on one of your units. If you're lucky, it'll hit a weak one, but you never know if I might miss and hit, for example, your base.


- Maturity
- Appropriate units, techs, etc.
- At least 10 units and 10 techs/upgrades
- Patience
- A somewhat stretegic mind.


- Each round you can move as many units as you wish as far as their preset move speed dictates. You can also attack, build, and research.
- There's a one in 300 chance (determined by RANDOM.ORG) that a random event will happen each round. These events vary from meteor showers to volcanic eruptions to earthquakes. The effects vary depending on the event, and can be beneficial, or problematic.
- Some maps will have multiple starting points of the same color- In free-for-all matches, whoever claims that color gets all the bases in that flavor, but in team matches they only get one.
- There are presently 4 match variants- Free-For-All, Team, Deathmatch, and Team Deathmatch.
- Deathmatch games give players ALL upgrades, unlimited tech, and 50,000 in resources. It also disables the Modkill Hammer and special structures, and makes events occur 3 times as often.
- There are rankings for games based on the required amount of eliminations for players is, eliminations of course being how many people the player has defeated. The 5 rankings are Copper, Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum, which require 0, 5, 10, 25, and 50 eliminations, respectively. These rankings will not take effect until at least 5 players have hit the requirement for each rank. Thus, only Copper games will be played until at least five players have five eliminations, and then Copper and Bronze until at least five players have ten, and so on.
- Boons MIGHT be implemented. More info on that at a later date.
- The amount of starting points varies depending on match rank, map size, and whether or not I feel like setting up a random duel.


Variant: Free-For-All
Players: 5 (Egadd)
Ranking: Copper
Events: ?????? ??????, ?????, ???????? ????
Starting Points: Red, Green, Blue, Yellow, Purple (5 additional base locations available)
Map: MAP01 - Basis Plateau (NOTE: Looks a bit off because I for some reason drew the terrain lines BELOW the gridlines. MAP02 will have the terrain lines over the gridlines.)


Balanced Set - Stats Tree
Resilience Set - Stats Tree
Power Set - Stats Tree
I'll sign up. I'll send the tech and stats to you sometime in the next 24h.

EDIT: Welp, it looks like no-one is signing up, so...
Gah, why must fate be so cruel? This is like the third or fourth game of mine that has suffered such a horrible death. D:

Someone close this please. ;_;
Want to see some of my cool swords? Well, too bad, right now you only get to see one of them, and it's my avatar. Might set up some kind of gallery/portfolio at some point, though.
Okay. Nom nom.
