Open Source: New files
by: OS Frizz on Sunday the 01st of July 2012

A lot of you have been waiting for this; this file contains all the to-hit logic for the game. Some bonuses are passed in from other places (effects, commands, etc.), process_turn.php will give you a better idea about the source of a penalty or bonus.

This is where the magic happens! This files handles taking units from your army and adding them to planets. This file is also called when a Drop Pad is used.

A sub-forum has been created to discuss code changes and possible updates:

Open Source Drop-Shock Forum

The forum contains information on how to post code updates. The initial focus should be on bug fixes and changes to functionality which does not affect gameplay.
