    Hello all!

    We have released a new version of Spring:1944. This one is numbered 3.00 with codename Operation Frühlingserwachen and is based on the SpringRTS 103.0 engine. Operation Frühlingserwachen or "Spring Awakening" was a combined German and Hungarian counterattack in march of 1945 against the advancing Soviet troops near Lake Balaton [1].

    Spring: 1944 is a free, open source WWII themed 3D multiplayer game based on the libre SpringRTS Engine. Our goal is to create a game that is as realistic as possible while still being fun and accessible to play. Games on average take 40 minutes and feature up to 8 factions battling to the last man standing. All factions are complete with several types of infantry, towed and self-propelled guns, normal and rocket artillery, tanks, aircraft and boats. The game supports big matches with thousands of units and double digit player counts.

    Major changes since Spring:1944 2.0 "Operation Overlord" include:

    • two completely new sides: Hungary has been added to the axis factions and Sweden is available for those who would rather not pick sides in this war. Both factions are complete with their infantry, vehicles, towed guns, mobile and rocket artillery, aircraft, boats, tanks and more.
    • An "in-game" faction picker widget. It is now possible to pick your faction when choosing the starting position.
    • A preview version of a new AI called spammer was added to assist the C.R.A.I.G. AI in training you for multiplayer games. This one will throw units at your at breakneck pace from a big and scary Flakturm. Can you hold your ground against it? Install the game and find out!
    • Some units have received a graphics makeover in the form of new models and new skins. Build menu pictures have also been updated.
    • For those who have new graphics cards a new graphics makeover has been added in the form of SSAO, color correction and Cook-Torrance specular shader.
    • There are new units available for the 6 other factions:
    • US: M36 Jackson tank destroyer
    • JPN: Type 5 heavy tank destroyer (Na-To)
    • JPN: Busou Daihatsu Artillery Craft
    • JPN: JPNT14 torpedo boat
    • All: Scout cars have been added
    • All: long range guns (longer range howitzers)
    • A new match option called Spoils of War has been added, which spawns 1940 era French armor at flags. The first one to capture the flag gets it, hurry up!
    • Flags now display their value. As always, flags give you income with which you can build units and increase in value over time.
    • We are now reachable over Matrix.org as well: Riot
