I don't suppose you could make spies act like the Arm Pelican and hover over the water?

Pelican a bit more hp and dps
Yeah, these things were pretty useless before, like amphibious weasels. :roll:
Fixed bladewing patrols, thanks to Saktoth
Thank you Sak indeed. This issue has pissed me off for a long time. :P
What fixed it btw? Was it script issues?

Now that Vulcans are even stronger, how about making shields worth a shit?

Even standard bertha shots penetrate shields with ease, how are we to expect that an even higher velocity shot is going to be deflected?

About the loadscreens:

1. xray shader, cool ;-)

2. "/shadows 1 4096"
(the shadows look really grainy, increasing the shadow map size should help)

/shadows 1 8192 if you have a high-end nvidia card, makes them look nice and crisp at any zoom :)

Finally, bugfixes. :P

Mostly looks good, the ground damages changes to fighters might be 'interesting'.

The patrol is -still- broken (Noize couldnt reproduce the bug), however, they had two 'nochasecategory' tags one for 'vtol' and one for 'all', the 'all' was taking precedence, meaning the bladewings would only attack if something strayed into their line of fire.

So you can now give them a move order, or just sit them somewhere, and they'll acquire targets and shoot at stuff etc.

However, if you patrol them in a group, they might still act zany. So avoid patrolling them.
