Re: Codes for the hosts

That suggestion sounds neat! No need for a central database and no need for complex public-private key crypto either when the lobby server is used as a trusted hashing entity as you suggest. It could even be used for general user and not only host authentication, couldn't it? Just one concern about ...

Proposals: Multi Point Patroling + Patrol Option in Factory

Lol, I just figured out by chance that you can set some default options like firing range, retreat options and circling directly for units in a right click menue of factories which is indeed quite helpful stuff. So that triggered some thoughts for new features and improvements and I wanted to know w...
