If you can't provide m, your mexes will stall -> your eco suffer.

Isn't that the same?

But it could be more newbe friendly this way.

Also: Why use cursed metal, and not dark earth energy or poisoned foot instead of metal? :D
(Would be something unique)

Hehe - yeah - why not. Rotten essence, dark condensate,... :twisted:

Hmm... It would render economy extremely easy to handle - maybe a little too easy.

Could you actually reproduce the cursor bug?

Pretty possible - there are some 70x70 cursors. Should be easy to change ;)

Every time - it sucks to play with an invisible cursor.
And the cursor is not with white background but COMPLETELY INVISIBLE :P

Can you not allow to select another cursor theme?
In zk, all but (maybe) one work fine - as far as I remember.

It is just the attack, patrol, move cursor, not the default one.
And if you go outside of the map they work.
-> maybe some alpha-color issue?

The latest version will introduce some drastic changes for the eco system. All energy upkeeps were removed and to balance this, the energy and metal outputs were reduced. Moreover several balance changes should make the cursed stronger during the early game.

Balance
- units do not consume any energy as upkeep anymore
- level 1 energy buildings will provide 10 energy, level 2 once provide 300

Yes. It is running along quite well on my side. I hope that all bugs/incompatibilities are ironed out now.
