Re: Maps

At first glance I was thinking flat boring blocky looking maps... then I tried some of them and wow, those are intense. My best skirmish techniques went out the window and I had a lot of fun working out what to research and how to stay alive in the middle of some quite delicious chaos. Well done, th...

Re: My first map I felt was worth sharing

So... I never did get that map added to the collection. The page always crashes with an error and says something about having notified an administrator, but I don't get past that point.
Is there any interest in getting my map added in there?

Re: What does veterancy do?

...Command units and the Vehicles under its control still follow under the same rules as the command, however if you have them set to retreat at a certain amount of damage each unit will stay under control of the command unit, repair, and then head back to the command unit... Is this still correct?...

Re: Can I add sensors on my map?

Ok, they do show up with advanced bases. However I think I like your preference for starting with a sensor unit as well as 2 trucks.

Re: How can I track where my power is going?

Well the way I now handle this is to hit F3 and remind myself of all the tasks I have set for my trucks.
I would still like to see a data grid or some alternative view of where all the power is assigned, but at least stepping thru the paged list of trucks gives me a view of the current activities.

Can I add sensors on my map?

I have a large 4 player map that starts out a little too dark and hidden, given the size of each player's starting base area. So I thought I would add a few sensors at each player base to help with initial orientation and deployment. When I compiled and ran it, the map view showed brightened circles...

Re: My first map I felt was worth sharing

Here's an update: 4c-dragonRanges.wz , with scavs in the middle area. I have not tried this with Ultimate Scavenger yet, hopefully I will get time for that soon. Currently the scavengers get overrun by AI oil seekers in no time, so I may need to reduce the oils in the middle, tho it has been a fun h...

Re: My first map I felt was worth sharing

Thanx. Yeah, I didn't have any strong inspiration on the centre so I put a base there to fill it up and see how they interacted with the other bases. I think I will explore what I can do with a scavenger base there.

Do you mean things like the cannon fortress? That has a lot smaller range than I first expected, and enemies had to get quite close to it.
If you research up to the heavy rocket bastion or the missile fortress they have better range.

Re: Units perpetually circling each other

Usually its trucks, tho most recently a truck and a tank started the dance too.
Yes, I usually just redirect one of them to get them back in business.

Units perpetually circling each other

I can't recall seeing this happen so often in previous versions, but I'm quite often getting two units which I have given instructions to, start to move in the same direction then they start circling each other and never seem to break out of it. Is this a recently introduced artifact or have they al...

My first map I felt was worth sharing

I made this map for single player skirmish, as in, that is what I do mostly, and have not tried this with multiple players. It has a touch of celtic art, maybe not what the landscape purists would prefer, but it gave me good long skirmish sessions, and I made a few tweaks each time I played it, so n...

Re: Map upload fails

Who manages the moderation of map uploads? I don't know if my file was successfully submitted or not. Should I try again?
