It looks really interresting.  I'm going to try it out during my vacations in about two weeks.  I'll give feedback here then.  I can't find time for it before then, the end of this semester is unusually intense at university.  However, I'm really interested in your work!

One question.

Is there enough interest here for me to keep going?

Or should I give up?

That would be a dream of mine, but I don't think there's enough interest in creature isle for the patch makers to patch it.

I'd love it though.

After months of playing Black & White 1.41 I cant even look at creature isle 1.23 anymore.

I noticed there wasn't a full map pack of all 6 official online skirmish maps, so I started there.

Then I noticed there wasn't really a good map pack of playground and skirmish versions of all the story lands, so I decided to make them.

After that I started bringing some of my changes into the actual story maps.

Then I realized that Creature Island is very underrepresented, so I had to bring that into the project. (It's an amazing game by the way and you can get it for free on myabandonware)

Then I figured, as long as I was going through all the maps, I should give them a tune up.

Might as well fix problems and add a bunch a new stuff while I'm at it right?

Next thing I know I'm completely overhauling 24 maps simultaneously so I might as well make them all feel like their part of a set.

Two months later here we are.

I changed and added all kinds of things, but one thing I didn't change is the story or any silver scrolls.

All quests have been tested and are still working fine.

Working as intended.  :)

How fast and how powerful your artifacts are is based on how much belief your villagers have in you.

In Land 1, by default, your villages belief is set to its maximum (9500). So you make artifacts really fast and they're very strong.

In Land 2, when you first start off, you only have about 1500 or so belief. So making artifacts takes longer and they're less powerful.

It can take as long as 1-2 full in-game days to make strong artifacts when you first start off in land 2. Unless you get tons of belief really fast.

Hello, I'm playing Black & White.
for some time until then ok, I went to land 2 and no artifact is charged by the villagers I waited a lot and nothing!
my game is in version v 1.40
Not really all that difference, without my patches the game runs a lot worse in fact because the game can't comprehend the amount of RAM you have and defaults back to low graphics mode.

You can easily run the game at 200+ FPS on max settings though on any hardware after 2008 :)
So, I think I originally installed and played this in the early 2000's and it was probably a 1Mhz Athlon rig with 256mb of ram and a GeForce2

I loved the game and it looked gorgeous at the time. But, things like coming through the vortex with a bunch of stuff would cause the game to grind to a halt.

I'm kind of interested in knowing if the extra poke of modern hardware really gets harnessed into the game now. How does it look? How does it run? Do modern faster CPU's and vast amounts of ddr4 make an astonishing difference or is there are there elements that are just never really going to benefit from all that extra power?

Really interested in digging out my old cd's and following the install guides here to see for myself. Loved the game at the time and welcome the opportunity to revisit it once again.

Many thanks in advance for all the stupid questions I'm going to ask.

Wow. I played this when it first came out and was just thinking of it and whether I could install on my windows 10 machine and get it running ... Wondering whether any of the patches would even be available anywhere online brought me here! And that's so cool! A whole community keeping the game alive! I'm I stalling for sure now! How does this run on an Haswell mobile with mobile Nvidia 960 GPU and 16gb ram?
