BACK STORY

It is the seventies.  Major advances in the frontiers of AI and Arpanet have enabled the UN to connect the first Neural Network to Missile Command.  Although running in a sand box environment, the AI has managed to become seemingly sentient, and capable in the art of war.  It is decided not to grant War Net access to the network.  However it was only a matter of time before, following a hack by a youth, War Net was given access to the grid.

The world finds itself in turmoil.  You take control of a random country.  It is up to you to decide whether you should cooperate with the other human players to vanquish War Net, or use this time to take over the world.

To go along with the first post, I include todays major update. ( Yet to be deployed live - I will do so tonight).

Shaders

During testing players found that they were having a hard time understanding what player owned what country, to amend this I updated the shaders (no easy task), to provide 2 views. 

View 1



One is the original black & white view. It has always been my idea to keep the color palette very minimalist.  I believe I will use this view now just for targeting.


View 2




Countries are now color coded during normal play, to allow a user to easily understand what countries belong to which players.

The view will change to View 2 everytime the player selects a new country to attack. After a short time out, View 1 will be restored again.

I think this is a good work around.
