What is ATTAC?
ATTAC is a TCP/IP Tradewars Helper. This means
that ATTAC will help you play Tradewars and make you a better and more efficient
player. ATTAC automates tasks, keeps a realtime database of fighters, ports,
sectors, busts and more, as well many other useful features. You use ATTAC
as a client program to connect to the tradewars game you are playing via
TCP/IP as you would with any normal telnet application. Through ATTAC, you
can then access any of the predefined scripts as well as write any of your
own using the REXX scripting langauge.
What is Tradewars?
Tradewars is an online multiplayer game that was
born in the days of the BBS and is still a very popular game today. Tradewars
games now run on TWGS
(Tradewars Game Server) which can run on the windows
platform. TWGS was created by EISOnline. You can read more about Tradewars
How can ATTAC make me a better player?
One example is paired ports. ATTAC will generate
paired ports, and automatically cross reference them with the ATTAC's realtime
bust list and mark busted ports with a asterick. ATTAC will then sort these
ports by the sector, amount, percent or the shortest distance to your sector.
This will help you maximize your turns and make the most cash. Another example
is that ATTAC will generate all the ports under construction, leading you
to a possible enemy base being built.
How can ATTAC make me more efficient?
Lets say that you want to sell 32k units of equipment
from a planet to the port in the sector. However, you want to sell it 250
units at a time to gain
experience from haggling with the port. You can
write a REXX script that will land on the planet, pick up the 250 units of
equipment and then sell it to the
port. You can then tell REXX to run that for 128
cycles and spare your fingers some pain. Now, any time you want to repeat
that task, you can use the
script you created.
Basically, ATTAC helps you play Tradewars and
it saves all the infomation as it plays in realtime. You can download ATTAC
and it will work in a limited
fashion by restricting the records a report generates
and by limiting all scripts to a max number of cycles. Purchasing ATTAC will
remove ALL these restrictions and entitles the purchasee to free upgrades.
