Hello everyone!
Congrats to the Hedgewars Team for getting to the big 1.0! I joined a little bit late, but it's very easy to see that you devs and supporters care immensely for this game, and I'm glad to be part of the community Big Grin

Anyway, I was looking through the downloadable content/ Hedgewars mods for the game on the 1.0 version and noticed that the Custom Specialists script pack was no longer on the list...

Does anyone know what happened to it? When I first got it, I was confused, because I didn't know anything about script parameters at the time... Now that I know what I am doing, however, it's actually pretty fun to shape and customize your own battles! So, was it removed on purpose? Can it be added back? And just out of curiosity, how did you all come up with the idea?

Thanks,
Hedgewars Tricks

Read that statement backwards, and it still makes sense!

Customisation is officially part of the release The Specialists so there's no need for DLC.

You can read the syntax here ↑ ↑ ↑

As for what triggered the idea, it was the forum thread discussing matchups in TS - was thinking it'd be neat to actually play them out.
Or maybe handicap a pro shoppa/sniper player.

It was me who removed it because it became an official feature, as nemo said.

A more readable documentation is at The Specialists.
