Uh - no - I did not even know about the existence of that webpage :?
Looks interesting - putting the cursed to ModDB/IndieDB is on my list. I wanted to have a video, the gameplay guide and some sort of installer first though.

Another update! I forgot to post about the version 1.00 - but I guess you saw it anyway :wink:

Major changes 1.00 => 1.10

Gameplay:
- Survival mode: added Boss units
- Survival mode: early and lates wayes are easier now

- replaced the priest's healing aura with the "focus aura" (increasing the accuracy (+33%) and fire range (+20%) of friendly units); priest can repair quickly now
- balanced the costs and hitpoints of the imperial Ripper and the cursed Bonebeast

Bugs:
- fixed aura bug (units kept the bonus after leaving the aura)
- fixed corpses staying on the battlefield: units will decay after 1 minute (exception: dead belial and mancbus will stay longer to give you a chance to resurrect them), buildings after 5 minutes
- fixed the footprints of many corpses
- fixed cursed defender's aiming behavior

Game's appearance:
- replaced the ghoul's model
- updated some sounds
- added skull radar dots for angels and bone dragons

only i think human infantry is completely useless? gunners own them pretty easy not to mention ghoul. if that was the idea, marines need to be cheaper and built faster.

See other thread. :wink:

ZK has about 180 symbols - one for every unit. You think that I should have one symbol for every unit in order to make them better visible from far away (like in S44)? That would also mean that your enemy will be able to identify every unit that otherwise would only be a radar spot. Or do you like ZK's radar spots soo much that you think they should be in the game?

200mb is actually quite small for a "modern" game isn't it? The most part is caused by the textures.

Yes Pls. That radar thing doesn't happen.

Don't do that azare, it would just confuse things on the minimap.

Dimm adjust your icon distance and you won't need them.

How? Just dots are differentiated by color like the symbols will be. ZK just beat BA in # of players. Maybe that is because of PW but maybe not?

I often have to and prefer playing zoomed out.

At least use NOTA's system of unit type.

@dimm: just to be sure - if you have your icon distance adjusted right in Spring's settings the radar dots will look like this:

There are 3 groups of icons right now - but as knorke suggests - some more categorisations won't be bad. At least for me anything more than that is confusing.

I am quite sure that PW is the reason for ZK's growing player base. Even I am tempted to play some ZK games in order to gain points/influence to unlock technologies. :mrgreen:

Oh, well that is a setting in springsettings.exe. You'll need to turn on advanced mode to find it.
dimm wrote:Just dots are differentiated by color like the symbols will be. ZK just beat BA in # of players. Maybe that is because of PW but maybe not?
It really hasn't happened yet but it is starting to and I support this but the unit icons are not the reason. ZK is offering more features than BA. This is a key element, you win players over by offering them more and zk is doing that.
dimm wrote:I often have to and prefer playing zoomed out.
If you have to.. well I am sorry your machine is so low end but as far as what you prefer? Well the game is clearly designed to be played out of icon view where you can see the units. Complaining that the game doesn't work well when you are playing it out of it's designed parameters is not really useful. I understand that is not what you are doing but I just wanted to put that out there.

Care to detail what the difference is?
