Well yeah but submarine units seem like the best match for the way this works. Land units stick to the ground and flying units don't path around terrain, right?

Re: Submarine Titans, old RTS from 2001- i want to re create it using spring

I haven't worked with submarines before, do subs on different heights get to move over each other?

Re: Submarine Titans, old RTS from 2001- i want to re create it using spring

The difficulty would be the vertical movement. For people who don't know Submarine Titans: Because it's underwater your submarines can move up or down. There are five height levels which affect both combat (can only shoot at targets at the same height) and terrain navigation (the subs can't go over ...

Re: go play grey goo you slackers!

I think the goo makes a lot of sense for a game that has both the goo's new economy as well as two traditional factions. We've seen the micro and balance hell that is exponential growth, the alpha aliens in E2160 were total arse in terms of balance and when you've got hundreds of little critters tha...

Re: Would bipedal mechs actually be useful?

(sorry for the thread necromancy) So Smoth's examples show that making a mech stand up might work. However even if you get a standing mech "for free" you still wouldn't want to build one for military purposes. Tanks are flat wedges for many reasons. One is that the smaller you are the harder you are...

I bet the randomly generated maps are one reason why terrain and water matter so little in PA.

Or if you're crazy Lua it, take the pathing results for the unit and instead of letting it move normally teleport it along the path via Lua.

Re: Dawn of War Soulstorm Remake in Spring - opinions

Basic skeletal anim doesn't involve IK or anything, just rigging vertices to bones and thus simplifying the transformations necessary. Kinda like the piece system but allowing parts of a single mesh to be rigged to different bones. Half-Life 1 didn't even have vertex blending but even that would be ...

Re: Dawn of War Soulstorm Remake in Spring - opinions

THQ's death isn't really relevant here, Relic still exists, Sega handles them and Sega is licensing WH40k. I can see the value for an engine change but currently unit rendering in Spring is pretty crap for anything like infantry, AFAIK there's still no full skeletal animation so ripped models wouldn...

Re: Aircraft landed and shooting

Normally it's just "hope that nothing enters the firing cone while the fighter is landed" because they use non-turret weapons.

Unfortunately it doesn't have an exponentially growing money supply to support that demand so you get massive deflation.

I'm currently putting my hope for the genre into Avarice which already has a playable demo. And their previous game, Coniclysm, was extremely weird but fun.

Re: Planetary Annihilation (Incoming Moon Drops!)

A campaign wouldn't be too useful IMO, most RTS campaigns are pretty much throwaway things you look at once before going skirmish or multiplayer and most are fairly shit. Of course there are campaigns like SC2 or DoW2 but that's practically a second game and completely out of scope for PA. Yeah, the...
