I just wanted to accentuate it - not only aiming at you.

If it actually worked. Could a quick bugfix version be released without the desyncing gadget and some of the more pressing gameplay issues fixes? Just the really game breaking ones suchs as instant enemy reclaim and instant rezz.

In the one game I could play without desynch, neither me nor my enemy had any trouble taking out turret, and even group of turrets, with tech 1 skeletons.

I like mobiles building mobiles, and with Spring repeat buttons and widgets, it's even easier to manage than TA:K's Zhon (which was already no problem). Don't listen to the whiners please.

As an alternative, instead of spawning singletons, spawn squads. Just a thought, I haven't had time to look at the game yet.

Itd be badass if u could make an asteriod summon as well as the dragon, and let it be called "woodworm." Alternative to the nuke.

yes, with widgets and repeat button mobile builders can be used quite well but what if the game is not about spamming the same combination of units all the time?

would it be possible to make the satanic builders work like a mobile factory?
like you press the button for building a unit and then do not have to click on the ground to define where it gets build. usually you want them to be build near the builder anyway so this dragging lines of unitsbuildplaces across the ground is not needed.

or have it work similiar to adding members to squads in the warhammer games:
you click a button on the builder and after a while the units gets teleported in near the builder, without this nanoframe stuff but created with a script. (if that is possible)

This way you keep your buildorders when you have to move the builders.

Definitely possible since that's what Carriers in THIS do.

i seemed to desync every game... no idea why

apart from that, this game looks freaking incredible; wonderful work sir... reminds me stylistically perhaps of warhammer undead, and certainly a hefty helping of 80's metal band album covers.

if anything seemed strange to me about the gameplay... skeleton melee soldiers don't have any LOS! perhaps this was intended, but it was a bit confusing seeing them attacking radar blobs that were right next to them. also, it seemed to take them a while to aim and attack; the skeleton mages were able to run right through a big clump of them without tanking hits, perhaps something like a short emp effect, or a "push" (ie BA riot tank) would increase the usefulness of the melee units as a meatshield... just some suggestions, im certainly not a balance expert by any means.

anyways wonderful work, im sure you'll fix the sync problem soon :D

Make sure all the players have lua shaders enabled. Still needs to be fixed of course, but that seems to work around it.

I have, uhm, two GUI criticisms... the unrepresentative minimap icons and the current cursor set. I don't have replacements on hand, but if you'd like I can make sets more... well, more atmospheric/in keeping with your game?

Yeah - please go ahead. That would be great! The GUI is a WIP - there is a lot stuff that needs some polishing.

Could you try to make a very obvious diffrence between the ui part where you can give orders (attack, ect...) and things you can build? Right now everything is sticked together. It should be easy to see what is what, so maybe make the nonbuildpic just a bit larger, and then make a small bar around the buildable things?
