Quite some time ago, I played the board version of WIF. I probably still have a the game stored somewhere. So I'm familiar with what is WIF.
However, I can't seem to find a thread that will give an overview to newbie of WIF, a good FAQ and the status of the game's development.
It seems there's a beta going on, is this the first one? How many are planned? What's the project plan (phases, date, milestone/gate, ...)
Will this game be playable single player, multiplayer or both?
I hope the architecture (game files) is open so that the mod community can tweak the game.
The threads at the top of the forum are the best place to start. You will find links to all the tutorials, AI discussion, and screen shots there. Since the game is still being developed, the material therein is evolving and some of it may be dated.
The thread on the Directory for MWIF forum is 1 year out of date, but in reality, not much has changed as to the structure of this forum. It is also a very short read and might help you get oriented.
EDIT: And as Christopher said, When is the most popular thread as you can see by the number of hits. It is the monthly status reports that are of interest (not the series of dumb jokes being posted there recently).
Oh, and I forgot, ... Welcome! Tell me what you think for I read every post seriously (though perhaps that isn't true for the dumb jokes).
