Simple, the com moves.

It would be extremely annoying if the com was locked in place, no?

New effects are sexy - I just tried a game and the peewee gunfire was incredisexy. Smoth is oversensitive. People bagging on Smoth are dicks. Gundam is wierd to learn (I still can't figure it out), but it's a solid, polished, professional mod. Smoth and Fang are Gods.

Can it move and build before it's visible?

Yes, it can.

Which is why I told quant to make the whole thing shorter / faster, it''l either :

1. block vision of where you can build / mex spots.
2. your com moves and builds except your com is invisible, which will look dumb.

And just to make things clear, all this work and crap is going to another erm... AA project thingie - not nixa's :P.

We're just helping spruce nixachu's up.

Lol, good luck if there is any one thing that I know fox, you cannot make everyone happy. I was upset when your thread got deleted, I was thinking you guys were quiting on the effects. I am very happy to see people continuing the work.

Thanks for sticking with it, I look forward to your progress. I know you guys are doing a gradual over haul so I am going to wait a bit before I look at ti again(I love surprises) so I ca see all the new stuff at once.

Oh and the com spaw effect is neat keep up the great work.


Nixa, would you consider adding the hellfire?

I'd remove the wait before the animation begins (the pre-game countdown is enough of a wait). Also lock the com's movement and actions until the teleport is mostly over. As long as the wait is the same for all sides it won't imbalance the gameplay.

Nuke effect is pretty, excessive...!

The whole effect needs to be either sped up, or reduced slightly, its just too much, for far too long.

It would probably be best if it just went off immediately instead of fizzling a couple times. Your view gets moved to your commander when he spawns anyway, so you're just looking at nothing the way it is. I like the whole effect very much though. :)

Yeah!

Anyway I'd totally lock the com in place and disable it's weapons and nanolathe by script during the animation like KDR said.
