Re: user interface

My very personal opinion on removing game features for the sake of easier learning is following: Fuck casuals. [/size] People play Dwarf Fortress all the time, and compared to CA it is much harder to learn and is even harder to play when you are starting. This means that if the game is fun enough an...

Re: Gunships

Okay i've run some tests with Fighters vs gunships. Basically, to be able to counter banshees, you need to invest almost the same cost in fighters. 20 banshees beat 10 vamps (5k vs 3k), but lose to 12 vamps (3.6k). So id agree with baracus' suggestion to decrease their fire arc, maybe not to 30 but ...

Re: Gunships

Wouldn't it be nice if gunships were useful in groups of 5 or so instead of being kind of pointless until you get 30 of them?
Groups of 5 banshees are completely useless. They just dont have enough DPS to kill ANYTHING.

Re: Gunships

Stat-wise, there is nothing really wrong with banshees. 250 cost is high enough to keep em balanced. for every 3 banshees you can have 1 mobile T2 AA, Adv fighter costs 300, and they only lose to banshees when outnumbered 4 to 1, thats 1000 cost vs 300 cost. However, there is still a problem, and th...

Re: Starting builds not capping mexes

Oh look, a mechanic that rewards good teamplay in a teamgame! And people get pissed at it. I dont see any problems with communism in all-pro games, and the games should always be balanced only for this kind of games. I do and always will hate the gameplay changes that are made solely to make complet...

Re: Modular Commanders

I like the general idea, but the whole licho's metagame suggestion totally turns me off. I mean, unlocking upgrades with points gained for winning games? Are we trying to be a room-based MMO-action game here or what the fuck is this bullshit? If we ever get PW running again, sure that would totally ...

Re: Boost Rushing

Personally, i would prefer a VERY short timespan for boost. Make it disappear after, say, 20 seconds. The time should be just enough to walk to your mexes if you start a little away from them, and quickly build whatever you need. Maybe make the boost not disappear all at once, but, like, you lose 5%...

Hm, i wish there was a stat tool which would tell how much metal has each player obtained through regular mexes, through OD and through reclaim.
That would quickly tell how true your statement is.

Re: Construct additional pylons!

The com Energy doesnt really matter, having slightly less of it just makes you build a few more solars on start, and that just delays yout build by 5-10 seconds. And can you make up your fucking mind on what is the aim of the new OD system. Is it promoting raiding or fighting the slippery slope? Bec...

Only for windmills and solars, because they have, like, 0 radius.
Your other choice is to build transmission fusions at the same distances as old transmission pylons. But its kinda expensive, you know.

Re: Construct additional pylons!

Test CA now contains experimental change - pylons are gone and each energy source acts as a pylon. (Bigger source - more range). Thank you for this change. It sounds a lot easier to manage because I don't have to think about pylons, and if something is off the grid I drop a solar near it. You need ...

Re: Construct additional pylons!

Well, here are my thoughts, in random order. No "One mex in x minutes levels up", if i have 6 mexes it is 100% fucking logical that they should upgrade twice as fast than if i had only 3. No mex upgrading over time. It sounds like a nice idea, but the pylons are aldready there and thats exactly what...

My complaint is also that all the shit is way too big. Especially the windows, and they are big in such way that most of their space is vacant anyway. I had to disable chilichat because of that, now im stuck with the default one. The resource bar is supposed to be above it. Remember the engine resba...

Re: Construct additional pylons!

After osme playtesting it kinda seemes like the the amounts of metal mined have been increased somehow. Ive checked the source and the overdrive equation is the same though. Maybe it felt that just because people porced more because they wanted to play with pylons, dunno. Anyway, I loved this new fe...

While most of the gameplay and feature suggestions here are insane and lame, argh's one makes alot of sense. Unit capturing is extremely hard to use in CA. We need some way to make EMP units prioritize units that are not yet stunned to those that are already stunned. Then maybe make Arm T2 veh cons ...

Re: SEAD bombers and AA changes.

Actually i would love to have some kind of bomber which would be able to effectively pierce enemy frontline AA. The precision bombers do well at first, but as the amount of AA increases, more and more of them die before they are able to release their bombs. Some sort of slow, high-HP bomber, prefera...

Re: Post here how much u hate dsd

The reason people play DSD is that 80% of them are noobs. And since DSD is so porcy, these noobs can still live and slowly explore the tech tree and think that they are helping, while actually they are completely useless for anything other than being a meatshield. Meanwhile, the decent players on ea...
