Damn, I basically reverted them to an older version before I messed around with them. I'll take another look, must be an engine change that caused it..

i know its a detail but i dont like most of new load screens, ba is all about unit spam and massive eco (mostly), load screens should represent that... currently its usually 1 ugly zoomed ba model and not that nice background

if you wanted a true reflection of most BA games it would be a pic of BADSD so imo the loadscreens are some sort of an improvement.

I dont like the new loadscreens either. The batch before that is the best, the ones before that (~1 year ago?) are kinda crappy too due to low quality.

I'd like to have screens of real combat situations, comm flying from a liche hit, janus vs rocko fight, massive spam on comet, vanguard bombardment... but not 1 or 2 units walking alone on a nice looking map, thats boring.

These are nice changes still, especially with bombers, though I still kinda wish for 1 side to get the old dmg back... Now they can 1-hit defenders but not solars and nanos like old bomber.

Take a look at the core metal extractor.. Its arms only go halfway up, and it does not wait untill its arms are completely up, it just starts turning straight away.

- Healthbars widget now disables the engine ressurect bars.
It would be really nice if healthbars were completely gone when the healthbars widget was turned off - spectating battles would look better this way.

Nice ideas, i'd like to see an image of one leveler destroying grouped kbots/flashes. Also, i think having an image of a comdrop in the enemy's base is a must, as this is what most BA games boil down to.

There's no way to do this without adding a new moveclass which would increase loadtimes and make everyone repath every map, seems a bit excessive to me for one very rarely used t3 unit.

it would increase loadtimes by 4%

but anyways, cant you use krogoth movement class?

"and make everyone repath every map" dont we already need to do this every spring release..? i dont remember much times when i used old path files... probably because i dont copy my path files to new spring folder >_>

Why not just move it into vkbot5? Would it be horrible if the Jugg got a minor boost to its slope-tolerance and amphibiousness out of the deal? It's not like the damned thing would be _useful_ in the water.

Rather than it "walking over", it could simply follow suit with the krog and destroy the dteeth?

... that's kind of what we meant. That is handled by the movement class. Creating more movement classes increases pathing cost. Giving the Jugg the same moveclass as the Krog would also give the jugg amphibiousness and the ability to climb slightly-steeper hills than it used to.
