hmm, would be useful if we could track which widgets people use (from the BA default widgets). so if theres such widget like LUPS or RedUI/loLUI then we could understand that nobody actually uses them and make them disabled by default.
That's unnecessary, I'd say ALL widgets off by default. IMO it is important to 'ship' the game in a minimum configuration to ensure good performance even for lower end systems.
Noob users may not even realize there are such things as widgets and that the FPS may be quadrupled by disabling the right ones.

New lua widget required - make list have columns and sort alphabetically. :P
I'd do it myself but don't know how :P :lol:

Saw strange behavior of the Core SAM lately: After shooting a volley at enemy bombers, it started spinning fast and didn't fire anymore although enemy bombers were close. That behavior continued for something like 10-20 seconds or so. The SAM wasn't blocked/stunned/whatever.

Ive also seen the sam do that, though I thought it was just unable to fire cause of wind around it.

moho mexes do not produce metal as long as the T1 mex is still there, they still use energy though. when the T1 is removed, they start producing metal, but they wont start turning.
happens for both factions.

The player was e stalling, that's why there is no m income from said mex. There is no such bug as you described.

The mex to the upper right traditionally takes priority, this is how you could steal allied mex spots of the TA style from AA onwards...

upper right priority? wtf... theres no priority, they share the metal, if you remove the normal mex, the moho will produce as much metal as it did with normal mex + moho mex.

Jethro are underwater too, I think it's fine, but samsons should have lower hp.

anphibious jethro is a redundant ability, on a sea map- eg, sands of war- you are never going to go kbot, you are going to go vehicle because you have anphibious assault tank and con vehicles. early game it is useless because you only have one lab and if it is water that will be vehicle, sea or air, lategame it is useless because you will have hovers (which can fire whilst on the water), sea or t2 air spam

sampson needs high hp to fulfill its current skirmishing role, its not op.

Jethro with the same weapon as the sampson would be inherantly less effective (it has lower hp, speed) but it would at least give bots a few more options (especially core...) and give them a little more flexibility

sure, but in any situation where the bot lab is optimal the anphib jethro is not useful

Actually, speaking of which, the Naval Engineer needs to be able to build those too. Right now the core Naval Eng can't build any amphibious AA units while the Arm one can (the Pelican). This means that, when making landfall, you have no anti-air coverage. My approach is usually to build an amphicom, use a SAM ship to cover it, and then build a kbot lab at the landfall location.

No, aa bot atm is faster, turns faster, and is much cheaper than samson. If you took jethro as it is now and changed only weapon it would be better than samson in most situations. Though of course it would be still worse aa than with current weapon.

And I have an idea for a map where the amphib ability comes to be pretty useful. Current sea maps arent really varied at all, theres a lot of funky stuff to be done there.
