The docs are in

What a difference a day makes.

I was bemoaning the lack of documentation in Warlords Battlecry 3 yesterday and I discover today my complaints were being addressed.

Infinite Interactive’s site is back up today and while there’s still a paucity of useful material right now, it’s a start.

I particularly liked the overviews of the races in the game. There are 16 playable races in total and casual gamers are unlikely to become familiar with each race’s strengths and weaknesses without these write-ups. There are only three races covered at the moment — Knights, Plaguelords and Dwarves — but it’s a start.

There’s also a map pack consisting of the four maps used for the IGN preview. Hopefully, more maps will be made available in the coming months.

In the pipeline are several utilities including a hero data extractor and a music editor. Neither sound exciting to me but intriguingly, the utility download page also promises “many other things that haven’t even come across your minds” will be released in the coming months.

It’s a shame Infinite Interactive didn’t bother to create a unified reference document with everything updated to reflect changes made in patches but one player has taken the initiative to do just that. The 103kb PDF file is a work in progress — it’s missing unit data right now — but again, it’s a start.
