Re: Research with allies

@Zarel Thanks for the responses. It appears during both phases - i.e. it appears at the beginning of power allocation. I've been thinking about having two icons, one for allocation phase, one for research phase. So things are exactly as I feared in the multi-player game--we could be sitting there w...

Re: Research with allies

So with the above questions in mind (and the previous observations), I propose the following: When an ally is in the Power Allocation Phase on a tech: Teammates see a green heart icon on the tech, which means the ally does not have enough power to research the tech yet. Only teammates with enough po...

Re: Research with allies

So with the above information in my post above in mind, I always worry about the things below whenever I'm playing in multi-player (MP) games and I see the heart icon telling me that my ally is researching some technology that I really want to use. Q1: During which of an ally's research phases is th...

Re: Research with allies

I would like to add to this discussion, but I'm not confident I have all the facts straight. Everything below is just from my own observation. So if others in-the-know could correct me where I've gone astray that would be helpful. There are two phases of technological research: Power Allocation Phas...

Re: Do you like the new Beta changes?

I like the green building holograms that really help visualize your base as you build it. However, I find on some maps, especially when viewing off-axis, that I miss the highlighted square tile. The square tile was actually very helpful when building small structures where you want to space things o...

Oh Please don't fix this bug. I like building 75 pads for my air force.

Re: Sensor specialization

I think you make some good points. No, he makes some excellent points! ;) I'd also like to combine the two CB turrets into one... I believe this is exactly along the lines of what the Luke was suggesting. A <type of> sensor should target a <type of> unit or structure. The <type of> sensor, then dis...

Re: New Survival Map 8c-AIAssault

I really enjoy your map; it's one of my favorites. I've only played it in T3. I first played it taking the lower-left outer base teamed with 3 standard AI teammates against the 4 standard AIs in the middle. It took me a few games to survive and win. In one game, the center team completely killed one...

New skirmish AI: DyDo-AI rel 0.9

I have not tried your AI yet, but after reading through this thread it sounds very promising. I have some ideas you might want to incorporate. I don't know is any of this can be scripted or not. Besides, I'm sure others will want to see some of this tweaked. It should at least make for lively discus...

Okay, I wasn't sure it was a bug or not, varying opinions and all that. Do you want me to file a report?

Cyborg Transport Movement + Disembark Orders

Firstly, I do not know if what I'm about to describe is: correct behavior, desired behavior, a bug, or perhaps just a incomplete design idea. Therefore, I haven't filed a bug report yet, since I figure other people may have varying opinions on this topic. Cyborg Transport Movement + Disembark Orders...

Re: Radar detector?

Q: What does a Radar Detector Do? A: It detects sensors. If an enemy sensor can see it, it lets you see the enemy sensor. Most of the time, there won't be any enemies spying on you, so there's really no radar to "detect". I'm sorry but to me, this description is not informative enough. If I move a ...
