Re: Suggestion for redesigned unit menu

..... From a development standpoint, one of our general problems with Warzone code is the difficult-to-work with GUI. With that in mind, we can redo our 3 GUI buttons as: 1) go to nearest Repair Station (or Headquarters) - existing 2) go to assigned Rally Point (or Headquarters by default) - new 3)...

Re: Suggestion for redesigned unit menu

let's look at the proposition from a different angle, for the sake of a thought experiment exchange that may be of value. there are currently 3 "go to" command buttons: 1.)repair station, 2.) command center & 3.) transport, tied to the unit health decay trigger. how about instead 1 button - go to se...

Re: Suggestion for redesigned unit menu

* i think there is great potential in this line of development to enhance gameplay & warzones popularity. * ~ one thing i was wondering about. do you think it would be a worthwhile, positive, command addition (& in alignment with warzone's essence) if you could: 1.) set a unit's rally point ? 2.) so...

Re: To new people who want boats and helicopters etc.

~ i guess my first question would be - * what do you actually know, first hand, primary source, about the history of wz going back to the retail bbs of 1998-99 ? more specifically, what do you know of the explicitly expressed mission, vision and design intentions for wz layed out in plain english, i...

Re: Petition to reinstate Guard, Persue and Hold orders!

That's why you should define what the essence is, so that we can change things that are not of the essence to improve the game. Having people scream "don't change things" whenever something is changed, refusing to even debate technical merits, is very tiresome and not very constructive. epic huge t...

Re: Petition to reinstate Guard, Persue and Hold orders!

The suborders vs primary orders is over most peoples head here, let's just say that Pumpkin seemed to have decided to split orders up to give units more fine tuned control. In that context, we could promote everything into primary orders, but, that doesn't allow us to fine tune aspects of each unit...

Re: Place your base. Proposals are invited

montetank, for sure bot limitations do put a damper on mp map design, esp asymmetric. for the sake of greater freedom of creative expression, i can see only one work-around. make one version of a map to account for bot limitations and another version of the map for human only play. of course that en...

i'm one fan that does not have to be convinced of the difficulty of making a fair MP asymmetric map. i made my first effort with TA many moons past and then later efforts with WZ, first using Edit World and then FlaMe. so my interest goes beyond just the matter of acknowledging or demonstrating diff...
