Re: Why is warzone now such a s*t?

3.1.5 players say the same for the 3.2.3 changes and 3.3.0 changes and so on. It is much, much easier to disable unwanted features than implement them from scratch, plus you get extra developers to work on "your" engine (and vice-versa on the spring side). Get on with the times, issues such as peopl...

Re: Why is warzone now such a s*t?

I rather we strip all this out of WZ, and have a WZ launcher that passes parameters to Warzone, and go from there. Using Qt for the lobby client makes perfect sense, and has enough widgets for everything we need to make a actual lobby where things can be voted on maps changes, map previews, and all...

Re: Why is warzone now such a s*t?

The infra already exists in spring world, so this is as easy as 1) Have wz2100-the-engine implement the unitsync interface so it can be loaded from spring lobby clients 2) Port wz2100-the-game to the Spring engine The second option is better as Spring outclasses wz2100-the-engine in nearly every way...

Re: Why is warzone now such a s*t?

I'd like to file my opinion that spectators will make the game worse and the games less frequent. I am requesting for this option to never be implemented.

You always have to include the enemy armor into your calculation.

Sunburst AA site balance

From http://betaguide.wz2100.net/weapons.php type of AA range damage/min cost damage/min/cost sunburst 12 131*28 = 3668 250 14.7 hurricane 14 100*70 = 7000 125 56 whirlwind 14 90*150 = 13500 175 77.1 Given that a hurricane AA site is almost always available by the time the enemy has VTOLs, why would...

deprecated tech in weapons lists

Why is there no "hide obsolete tech" in the weapons tree? I don't know what e.g. light cannon is doing there cluttering 5 pages of weapons 50 minutes into a medium-oil team game.

Re: Commanders in multiplayer/skirmish

It seems that commanders are near useless in MP, so perhaps the bonuses should be raised?

Commanders in multiplayer/skirmish

Can someone explain the bonuses that commanders give to units? http://guide.wz2100.net/experience does not work anymore.

Re: Research time and cost of towers and hardpoints

How come hardpoints tend to have less HP and much less kinetic/thermal armor than mobile units?

Research time and cost of towers and hardpoints

E.g. scourge missile tower taking over two minutes to research in a fully maxed out research facility makes absolutely no sense to me. You have the missile and you can mount it onto units without further research. You also know how to build towers and hardpoints. So why is there even *any* research ...

Re: 3.3.0 (Beta) Multiplayer issues

The unit limit can be increased via mods. But the more units are allowed, the slower games will run. Maximum zoom distance will be increased if I fix a few bugs related to it. Sure, but it doesen't have to be limited to 50! In spring the maximum total is around 30000 with 1000 per player being the ...

Re: 3.3.0 (Beta) Multiplayer issues

In SP, cyborgs are moving inside transports (on the left panel), it looks hilarious. There is still a really low unit limit and maximum zoom distance is awful. Why is there a 5 cap on maximum research centres? Can't you make maximum unlimited with default 5? Similar for other buildings. The game doe...

Both previous Berg's archive and forgon's archive "work". In the new challenge the bots don't do anything but build base.
