Re: Givin' up them props for Cowboy :-)

Dammit, why aren't there more posts in this thread?! :o

And why have I been gone so long so as not to notice?!?  :-[

Oh yeah, RL. D'oh.

Re: Intel core duo. What model is better ?

I'm pretty sure an E6750 costs a LOT more than a E4500 so I'm surprised you didn't spend that small amount extra to get a 7600GT or better. It's a MUCH better card than the GS.

Re: New interface

So currently a complete rewrite of the GUI code seems like the best&cleanest solution (maybe even the fastest), which however would probably still cost several months.
Indeed. Or we'll be quoting watermelon to everyone who comes here for the rest of eternity...  ::)

Re: AI blocking itself and what happen with flying trucks?

Indeed. It's not just the "active" FSM module of the AI but the "passive" base AI that has a good few problems still outstanding, and because a residual form of this AI is used to deal with ALL individual units, including yours, even a human player can get "choked" if he's not careful (indeed smackt...

Re: Do you want these features to be implemented in warzone?

I'm not worried about the ammo too much; I've been down that road with the Earth series, we'll either end up emulating it quite closely or making a bit of a hash of it (or a bit of both!). Yes, it could help kill ScourgeSpam but so could a more general rebalancing and fleshing-out of the existing te...

Re: Metal Storm

MStorm is just a fancy new firing mechanism - and that really expensive quad-barrel handgun is useless after it shoots its load... not a very practical system really... its heavily over-hyped at this point. I was thinking of some usage of low-caliber types in T3 *cough*NEXUS*cough* but by T3 the emp...

Re: Vote for the most useless Mid-Game weapon

AssCan = Assault Cannon + me being lazy. And I'm SURE it was called that quite a bit in yesteryear by equally lazy posters...

Besides, you have to admit it does have kind of a ring to it, doesn't it?  :D

Re: What was that weapon?

I wonder what the code was like for that mess... after all there are two Plasma Cannons in WZ, but the playable one is actually more like a horrendously oversized and overpowered flamethrower, the unplayable Nexus one an uber-version of the Incendiary Howie.

Re: unit movement

It's still quite a problem... I don't mind units getting slowed down in cramped confines while they make room for movement - that's tactics. What's annoying is retreating units charging into ones behind them and clogging everything up while their asses are handed to them - that's exploitation (or ju...

Re: Vote for the most useless Mid-Game weapon

At least they have a point in Resurrection, thanks to the lack of TSC due to the code being based upon 1.10. In 1.11 the TSC (Twin Siege Cannon) was added after the Heavy Cannon and its range and firepower made the HPV, Needle and Rail irrelevant (and the AssCan unless you were some kind of TAssCan ...

Re: Multiplayer Save

Extension of Arena: good old-fashioned Deathmatch. When all team units are destroyed replacements are dropship'd in (i.e. respawn). Actual match lasts a specific duration and the winner is the team that inflicts the most total BP damage OR kills the highest resource value of enemies (so pwning that ...
