CHANGES IN BA! UNPOSSIBLE!

On a less tongue in cheek note, Noize, I am not sure if you knew but my machine is still down. I am am still serious about doing those low particle effects for you. In many cases I can actually reduce the particle count while improving the looks of things. Sorry for the delay, all of my projects have been delayed through several strings of unfortunate incidents.

Good you fixed radar vehicles, but can you say what the intended purpose for them was with that nerf? They don't seem to have any advantage as T2 vehicles now that T1 vehicles don't.

Otherwise, awesome changes.

Why do seaplanes need submerge? Seems a bit random.

Replaced Adv Fusion models with the CA models, Thanks Saktoth
This is blasphemy! You yourself said that models won't be replaced for spiffier versions untill the vast majority of all models are updated. Where are our updated mavericks zeuses commanders sniperbots goliaths weasels reapers etc....

Same with the XTA lights.

The adv fusion always looked out of place, now it looks more consistent with the rest of the units.

About the lights. those were animated textures in OTA, so this is the best i can do to bring that feeling back.

Also we are not against new effects, but we are not just including new effects just for the sake of it, it has to look good also and yes thats subjective.

There are a few units like that. I'm not sure why it happens.

Omg it's Santa Com! :mrgreen:

I think I like pretty much all the changes and many of them are similar to what I've done to my very own mod based on BA (expect an official announcment in about a week *SURREPTITOUS ADVERTISING* :wink: )...

Wow, you also have already passed it to Modinfo - great! :-)

Hi - sorry for double posting but EDITs tend to not get read... :wink:

I've now done a small test game and I've got two points I'd like to mention:
1.)
For me those images for the defense range widget are missing - here a screenshot for you:
Image

2.)
Now the first screenie also comes in handy as I'm going to talk about the Annihilator and a general problem. Besides that I think that he's underpowered when it comes to costs and comparison to the Doomsday Machine it also suffers from another effect. Currently beam lasers lose power over the distance. On the first screen you see the Anni and an enemy lab which is pretty much at the max distance. You now may think that the Anni will kill it in one shot as it deals 5000 damage and the lab only has 2690 but now look at this:
Image
One shot and it still is alive!

So maybe you should go ahead and add a minintensity=1 to the beam weapon (and maybe to all beam weapons). For a reference have a look at THIS THREAD. I think it's rather important as it makes the Annihilator even more underpowered than I think it is as it will fire when something comes in range and due to the long reload time it currently will waste lots of precious damage that way... :wink:

I'm unhappy with the inclusion of the Defense Ranges Widget, because I feel it detracts from the manual need to be aware of what is in what location and further reduces the effectiveness of defensive structures. Also, it seems like it would make ghosting much less... relevant.

On the other hand, those of us who want to play an RTS and not "BA unit trivial pursuit" think it's wicked-cool.
