Ground decals are generated in such a way that severely impacts performance on all cards, so if you wish to play competitively, you should reduce them to the lower settings, though removing them entirely can have an impact on your situation awareness.

Should I build a fire station right away or should I wait until the first fire and tell the fire truck to go to the burning building?

You need to enable all the Lups-related widgets.


Yeah, the latest versions have been messy since we're implementing Comm upgrades and there are many unexpected consequences.

several people (myself included) have experienced fatal crashes in LuaUI using recent CA, could someone take a look at this please (posted under "Crash" in Bugs forum).


errors start with:

LuaUI: error = 2, IsAbove, [string "LuaUI/widgets.lua"]:1255: attempt to call global '' (a nil value)

ends with:

LuaUI: error = 2, DrawInMiniMap, [string ""]:714: attempt to call global '°>R' (a nil value)
LuaUI: error = 2, IsAbove, [string ""]:714: attempt to call global '°>R' (a nil value)
LuaUI: error = 2, IsAbove, [string ""]:714: attempt to call global '°>R' (a nil value)
LuaUI: error = 2, IsAbove, [string ""]:714: attempt to call global '°>R' (a nil value)
Spring 0.75b2 has crashed.
Exception: Access violation (0xc0000005)
Exception Address: 0x008e971a


using 075b2, XP-sp2.

Did you remove the stacktrace there? That thing's important.

I still dont understand how embark works. If I build transporters they will pickup new units and bring them to their dropoff point. But making the transports stay in one place is allmost impossible. How do I tell them to just sit on their asses and wait for further orders?

Dont use embark :)

Actually, this would be nice, but why dont you just call the transports when you need them? I mean, doing something instead of waiting is good, right?

Assign them to a group, and when you need them, call them and have them do something. (I can see this get messy tho with a unit in the middle of embarking)

Middleman - queue embark to your factory or give unit stop + embark ..
this will make transport pick the unit and wait there

No, we are currently working on flea's new technique called bite, where the fleas barrel will widen out and fire a wider laser for 100 energy with a reload of 10 seconds.
