Re: Mobile sensor turret ignores "hold position" command - b

I have a solution: don't use mobile sensors! :lol2: Towers have a longer range than the tanks, that and you don't have to assign targets, they just go for whatever's closest I know this was a joke, and I do hope noone uses this argument seriously. Mobile sensors' whole point over towers is that you...

Re: AI is cheating beyond reasonable

I've found it hard to dry up my power when it's got just 8 derricks supplying it O_o you need to macro a lot more, unless you have over 30 oil derricks you should not have any problem spending your money I play low oil games, and tend to have high level power gens pretty soon, that's how. That and ...

Re: Friendly Fire ?!!!!

I've noticed friendly fire with artillery, but I've never noticed it from cannons and that (then again, the area of effect on a cannon is pathetic, so no surprise). Just spread your units out more, and use artillery first, and THEN send in the main assault force when the arty's done

Re: AI is cheating beyond reasonable

hang on, if you have every single resource that ain't in his base, how are you running out of power? I've found it hard to dry up my power when it's got just 8 derricks supplying it, let along a whole map's worth O.o you sure you got enough power generators? Also, if the AI is being THAT much of a p...

Re: AI is cheating beyond reasonable

the standard AI is very well known for being a cheating swine. Chief among them is what is basically the 'more power' cheat, that gives it an extra 1000 power instantly. I've watched it happen many times. Also, if you want your power up faster, make a point of researching the power generator tech

Re: New Texture

Then again, it's a Beta, what dya expect As we all know, Beta is the Latin word meaning "does not work yet". The release has bugs, many which have been already fixed thanks to your testing and reports. Hurray! However, if the game is not running at all, the most likely cause is the amazing graphics...

Re: New Texture

I have actually yet to see the new textures, cos the latest beta version of the game simply will not run a game whatsoever. It won't do campaign, skirmish or challenges, much to my annoyance :annoyed: Then again, it's a Beta, what dya expect

Re: The *NEW* Warzone walkthrough (Done with RED units)

Actually figured it out. I left 4 units when the Beta base was destroyed. If I recycle those before the base is destroyed, I get the 16,000 credits. Sometimes I have no patience. ugh. That really shouldn't happen. You are supposed to start with 16K cash when Gamma1 starts (no matter what your BETA ...

Re: stuck in alpha_11

It says to stop any tanks from escaping, and a red dot blinks. I go to the red dot, make sure no tanks drive off the map (never mind the enemy tanks driving past, since they weren't trying to drive off the map, so I could worry about them later) Those tanks driving past are the ones you're MEANT to...

Re: Effective AA units/buildings?

*sigh* yesyes, i read that. I was just connecting a few dots, for instance patrol in the place of vtol strike towers along with current weapons. The hint part was more 'wait we already have the guns, why not just use them on vtols?'. the assumption was that its not that hard to use a model already ...

Re: Newbie

I've often hit 100k power because I got Vapor Turbines pretty quickly, often within the first hour of a game starting. ...erm, you're playing on maps with more than 6 power near the starting base, aren't you? Those maps are unbalanced. Then again, you said "within the first hour". I'm thinking of s...

Re: Bugged up skirmish - Can you find the enemy?

I've had this happen before, 'cept I had a whole load of AA up so I didn't even see him. I think the tops of buildings don't collide with objects, which could explain why it was able to land INSIDE your factory rather than on top of it. Kinda like how your weapons fire doesn't hit your buildings whe...

Re: Bugged up skirmish - Can you find the enemy?

I managed to bust the VTOL. Just get a Ripple rockets up, and a scattering of sensor towers around the map. Judging where the turret fired, the VTOL was towards the west (he was actually hiding on one of your cybrog factories, the cheeky bugger!)
