What are Nexus, NullBot, and Semperfi, and what do they do?

You boys have been doing so well, I haven't had to say anything for such a very long time - it's been months. Today is different – my builders stand around with their thumbs stuck up their asses most of the time if more than three builders are trying to work on the same item, they won't move to put ...

Let's Make Some Real In Game Changes

I need some changes to make the game easier on the CPU and stop AI crashes. What I want is a way to delete large selections of units/or base defenses at the same time using the keystroke Ctrl + D. When we are playing the game we build to solidify our original position/base. But once the base defense...

Re: Cheaters IPs.

After reading this post I was wondering if you thought you were looking at this proposed problem ass-backwards? It seemed that players dislike the possibility that players can Cheat in Multi-player hosted games? So lets ask Zarel if he or one of the other developers could create some code to this ef...

Re: why there are no new maps in the game?

You are missing the point. It was suggested to the game developers to incorporate the existing map maker into the game itself so the right maps for the game could be created by any user. We were told that the current game developers didn't have the necessary skills needed to incorporate the map make...

Is Your Computer Fastest Enough To Run This Game?

It is a funny thing about Computer Programmers - they may know a lot about software but know absolutely nothing about hardware - as you can see from this comment: "That could be the case, or it could be something else. Too hard to tell, but most of the time, crashes to desktop are the result of driv...

Does Anyone Understand The “Worth Of Consistency”?

Do you understand the difference between a first rate game and a second rate game? A first rate game costs you money and a second rate game doesn’t. Has any of the current Game Developers served in an active Military, led men into battle, ordered men to their deaths, lived with countless nightmares ...

AI Can Build Weapons You Can't?

In the map Nitemare using the latest beta, the AI has access to a Plasma Cannon on a platform different than the Plasma Cannon I can build that has a range three time farther than mine. It comes as base defense and the AI has the ability to build the weapon repeatedly during the match. Is this abili...

Re: Campaign - gamma 8 is fairly unpleasant. [SPOILERS]

I see the obvious wasn't mentioned - it is a strategy game and you are not employing the correct strategy for this level. When you arrive on this map you are to take command of the entire area. Once you own that square area - you want to place long-range base defenses at the top of the map and the b...

Re: Game Developers: Trucks, Trucks, and more Trucks

There are times when dealing with children that can be fun, this isn't one of them. Whenever I post to this forum it isn't to report known bugs because I don't arrive until a week after the new Beta version has been released - allowing all you other fellows to be ahead of me to report all those bugs...

Game Developers: Trucks, Trucks, and more Trucks

However, 2.3 Beta 9 was a nice release to see. Played the entire Campaign in all three difficulty levels and tested 200 skirmish maps without too much trouble but that 'however' really doesn't let you off the hook just yet - you're simply on parole for now. It seems that you fellows are having a rea...

To Change Game Speed Or Take A Placebo Where The Sun Doesn't

Is the question you should have ask but you were probably just being polite - I don't have that particular gift. In earlier version of the game by pressing Ctrl and the + key together would increase game play, supposedly - but the increment changes from 1.0 to 1.3 to 1.5 - I frequently noticed that ...

Re: 2.3, double turret dragon?

What is the reasoning behind this modification? Wasn't the Dragon Body big and slow enough as it was? I noticed when you align two turrets together they often overlap one another - does that effect game play? Can one Dragon do double duty? Can both turrets fire at the same time or is it the firing s...

Re: How should I deal with bad suggestions?

The simplest way to handle this decision is to explain to the individual exactly why their suggestion can not be implemented - as one adult talking to another adult - it will take more time than just "No" but you will get fewer negative feedback posts from users if you can take the time to do this w...
