About layers, why not a layer for 'impassable' locations ? 2 colors -> passable, impassable. Can be used to prevent units to go where you don't want them to go, like in a buttom lake on high ground maps. Of course, planes would not be affected.

I have a question... In your screenies, we can see that the host gave a name with spaces to the game. Are you sure central game server can handle this ? Because if not, we also need to modify the game server code, and don't think we can without the help of SY.... And spaces are a must have for game ...

I really love this idea. Why we should use workaround if we have possibility to include a real solution ? This option is not really popular for now maybe because you need to take a workaround. And the idea will not be used only on specific situations. I can even find a way to use it in the first 3 m...

the teleporter is a good one i recon, there was one in one of C&Cs tho IIRC it was quite limited in some aspect which made it kinda a luxury more than a useful weapon. OMG ! This was called Chronosphere, and was not a luxury, but one of the most powerful weapon in game ! And it in C&C Redalert and ...

Fps is a way to mesure time inside the game. This mean 30 ticks per second, or 30 Hz, 30 recalculation per second.
This have nothing to do with graphic fps, which tell how many images per second you get.

TAS always at 30 ticks per second, and your computer determine how much graphic fps you get.

I will go take a look in sources tonigth, and will see if this can be done there (maybe it is just a formula to change.)

Yep, this is a nice feature, and i don't think it take much ressources. The fact is that the vehicules mvts look realistic for me, no big jump or any rolls on half the map (ever played Warhammer 40k dawn of war ?). Maybe a bit too realistic. I want to see pewees flying all over the map by a Krog hit...

The tag MapHardness is only called 2 times in sources. When it is read from the SMD, and when baseStrength is calculated (baseStrength is used to calculate the size of the crater). baseStrength=-pow(strength,0.6f)*3/mapHardness; So in fact, it take strength, which must be the power of the weapond, c...

Yep, realtime render of the minimap is nice (seeing the explosions of a buzzsaw in realtime :p).
