Re: I'm building a new Campaign, any pointers?

@Shadow - I did consider mentioning NRS mod, but using usury as an example seemed somewhat at odds with my sustainable worldview. Regarding multiple resources, the pace of the game seems to be the main factor. So in many online games, such as Travian and Grepolis, there are usually 3 or 4 resources ...

Re: The Doc's Bio Lab for Scav Experiments - & other odditie

Regarding VR - why not treat it as a drug? In recent years it's become apparent that western governments are *still* behind much of the drugs trade, for example CIA's links to Mexican drug cartels (and many, many documented drug running operations over the years), UK military protecting opium fields...

Re: I'm building a new Campaign, any pointers?

For resource creation, we're sorta stuck with power at the moment. If you look at Shadow Wolf's "Contingency" mod, he adds a new power source: wind turbines. But it still is power based. Currently there's really no way to have multiple types of resource - we're limited to just 'power'.

Re: No bridge? engineers will build one!

IIRC the main issue was recalculating the pathfinding routes?

Re: One day we will have a cyborg transporter and then..

Regarding the repair stations, what about if there was a repair turret that could also repair the droid it's attached to while not repairing other units? Like cannons it could add a lot of HP to the droid it's on making that droid able to withstand a lot of attacks.

Re: XANAX's mechs for 3.X+ [split]

It would be nice if we could get it so the mechs were something that could be researched later in the game - roughly around the time when ground shaker / archangels are becoming available. This way they could be given much stronger armour putting them on a par with tanks. It would also be interestin...

Re: Javascript API documentation

As long as there's a way to determine what version of the API you're working with (often by examination of specific functions, globals or constants) then in JS it's relatively straight forward to handle the changes in the API. Problems arise when something changes in such a way that it's very diffic...

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

The youtube limit increases after a while - the initial 15 min limit is just there to stop people making accounts to upload full hollywood movies. Once you've uploaded a few videos the limit subsides.

Per and Berg got the old XanaxPrime mech mod working in 3.x series: viewtopic.php?f=30&t=10997#p121993

Would be cool to have them in Contingency as mid-late game cyborg option.

Re: One day we will have a cyborg transporter and then..

I haven't played much C&C so not sure how they worked in that game. I was thinking something like an air-taxi for droids, automated to an extent. So you build some of these air taxi things and when droids are trying to get from A to B (particularly from factory to rally point, or retreating from bat...

I was meaning more from an anti-rush perspective - having some MGs on the HQ would help against truck rushes in particular.
