Re: Eternal Struggle: Landing Operations 0.194

Not ugly from how it looks, but in terms of game-mechanic :) As it is used against artillery, the shots it should block will come from above - like plasma rain, etc. How would you like a roof/canopy? Would you like to use a eliptical (or any) mesh for collision? Or would you like to change the shiel...

Re: chrank and the constant failure of balance

This 3 choices are only Examples... And I don't know how I can get the resource management skill, because many widgets auto-share excess before a gadget does it (which will log it). The share-value only counts built units, not plain resources, etc. then project it onto a single value Not like the cu...

Re: Can someone explain what script signals are?

So you are saying my signal tag can be a function? That makes very little sense to me. Shouldn't that solve all the issues? function Foo() Signal(Foo) SetSignalMask(Foo) -- Do Stuff end NoParallelExecution(Foo) would be simplier to understand, because it only does what it says it does and exactly w...

Re: Ideas for creative/interesting modes of unit production?

+1 I like the organic stuff and got a nice Idea! Do you know the Aliens from "Earth 2160"? If you have enough time, you can make an even better mod: Build-Manager: An advanced tech tree style widget - it issues build/morph orders (even if you don't have the required units now). * Maybe you want to ...

Re: chrank and the constant failure of balance

ZK devs got annoyed because it is too complex (joke) :D First, you need 2 ELO ratings and a counter for your average team size: 1v1 ELO: gets adjusted by "VALUE* 2/ (teamSize +1) = VALUE* 0…1" MPvMP ELO: gets adjusted by "VALUE* teamSize/counter = VALUE* 0…1…[expected 2…5]" BASE_WEIGHT = (100?) - ho...

Re: Eternal Struggle: Landing Operations 0.194

Maybe you can use the model to replace weapons on other units. +1 All your models look pretty and fit into a theme - I like this style :) Why do you not have a smaller but static shield for defenses? -1 because the big one is ugly and either completely invincible or completely useless. You can attac...

Re: chrank and the constant failure of balance

Some players can't manage their metal bar - that is really true! A team with some players which are skilled in it and some which aren't performs better - that is true independently of the other stats ... You even have to consider the management from e excess and m excess differently... Even the ZK's...

Too much DSD, Throne, etc (Map: DeltaSiegeDry)

I enter the lobby and see BA with DSD, BA with Throne, Zero-K with porc-line maps... Is there any chance to get a game running with a map like this?: 2-4 starting areas with mex-spots for 3-8 players Battlefield surrounded by unimportant terrain (no mexes, no easy defendable positions) Mex-spots dis...

Re: How to remove first-person control targeting restriction

It should be at least enabled for single-player or bot games.

I think of it as an advantage, because as a newbe I were trapped sometimes after [C] instead of [X].

Re: How should the AI handle it's army?

Zones of interest: Each mex is interesting The closer it is to other mexes or the more metal it has, the more it is interesting (dual-mexes, triplets) The AI should either try to kill the metal economy, the energy economy or the build power economy, dependend on the mod. Kill constructors in EVO-RTS...

Re: How to handle units getting stuck?

Can you detect if the commander is using metal? If yes, he is building something. This solution is not perfect - you may have a worker (not neccessarily the com) which is stockpiling projectiles but not building. Can you not check if the commander proceeds in his last task? This would solve any stu...
