What are the KPUD's ...
The KPUD's (for Kali and Kahn PUD's) are a set of 'standard' PUD files to be used in
multi-player games for internet play. Their purpose is to extend the
set of available PUD's for internet Warcraft II players and make that set available for free to
everyone. In order for this concept to be successful, many players must participate by
using the KPUD's and spreading the word to all internet Warcraft II players.
The maps chosen to be KPUD's have gone through a rigorous process of evaluation and play
Several thousand multi-player PUD's were initially reviewed. From those, almost 200 were chosen
for play testing and further evaluation. Based on the evaluations of the play testers, 74
maps were chosen to become KPUD's and were put through a final polishing.
The resulting KPUD's all have fair starting postions and well thought out resource amounts,
and provide a variety of scenarios to satisfy all tastes and skill levels.
