Morph the tube on a metal spot. It's a mex, not a metal maker. I know it's confusing, but that's why it's a hidden faction for now.

As for something you'll see much sooner, there's the new "mex overdrive" feature. It removes the need for Moho mines and metal makers from the game entirely and reduces your need to micromanage your economy. Still in the works but so far it's really awesome. Good work, Licho.

I'm really liking this mod. Do you guys think you can have a completely free version within about 5 months? I want to bundle CA with the packages for Ubuntu, and make it very easy to start games.

middle anything that outranges and can out maneuver it

morty/fido/rocko/storm but needs micro so use some assault units as meat shield walls vs the zeus

or sumthing bigger goli is good but enuff zeus can stun one so always bring support and use a varied assortment of units

The Zeus, like most Assault units, has lots of HP but is relatively slow with a short range. Skirmisher units (with longer ranges) are relatively good vs the Zeus, though they take micro. The difference with the Zeus is that if he does manage to hit you, he can paralyze you so you cant run away from him. That makes it all the more important to stay out of his range.

The paralysis makes small numbers of light units less effective vs the zeus, as he will just paralyze them before they're capable of doing any serious damage. Always attack a zeus en-masse.

I think that some units might need something like a "effective range marker", such as, for example, AA lasers/chainguns. True that their range is that big, but its quite counter-intuitive that their accuracy is very low and thus you need to count it on their range then making then...

core play:

Missile turrets firing a volley and reload sucks a fat dick...

the upgrade to exploiter is lame and not something I would want, bring back the moho at least as an option.

mohos are still being discussed about

hoping to keep worthwhile upgrades (that do not increase m production) but are worth the cost so you can upgrade your frontline mex's

I still think the salvo missile towers are lame.

also, I think the cockatrice is a bit too strong. That or core has been gimped.

I think the chickens' HP/dps should increase according to the sum of the human players' metal incomes.
