Idea: Dretch LEGO - free and flexible barricades

Simple idea: let grangers create blueprints of various static structures. When eggs are not needed, they should spawn bot dretches who will then construct the structures that the grangers have create blueprints of out of themselves.

Re: How to make people stay and met together?

Here are some observations. Firstly, probably most of new players are total beginners to the game. Secondly, new players seem to really really really really like to build. Maybe the drill yield should be increased in at least one server. And they seem to like to join aliens too (this is why I'm comp...

Re: How to headbite and strafe jump in a nutshell

They totally are, but they've been kept because players would complain if they were to be removed.

See how much text did this take to explain?

Can someone tell me why keeping these cheats is better than replacing them with common sense friendly mechanics?

Please sell me on glorified cheats

I'm of course talking about dretch floor head bite and strafe-jumping. They seem to be good for nothing (except making the game less playable without the knowledge of them). What significant benefits do these have over common sense friendly mechanics? Here's just one example: - Have only two damage ...

Re: How to make people stay and met together?

Note that as poltergeist we must add rolling and pitch movement (to build on wall or ceiling). Why do poltergeists have to build the same way as normal players? Just let people build wherever the mouse is pointed at in this mode, without worrying about the distance or angle. It would also be nice t...

Re: How to make people stay and met together?

I enjoy myself playing 0 A.D in sandbox mode. I just discovered some people do it with Unvanquished too. Could be good to help people starting games like that as single player (i.e. proper local default game with some bots). Starting a local server is already as easy as it can get. Some points thou...

Re: How to make people stay and met together?

Where are they? Playing other games because Unvanquished does not provide a playable game, obviously. How to keep them? How makes them meeting together? How to make them enjoying the game as it was designed for: playing with and against real people? In the short term: Add an immediately visible sch...

Microsoft used to be like mice

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sfoV1RU1RRs Microsoft used to know what's good as well... Microsoft has made Windows XP - the best operating system. Its default theme (Luna) deserves a special mention: it's the absolute pinnacle of theming. No operating system ever since managed to outdo Luna, not ...

Proposal: bring back the Golden Age!

This is probably what did Unvanquished in: developer burnout. Years of fruitless work on a game which nobody plays. And due to lack of players there was nobody to replace them. I now know exactly what thought that was put into the developers' minds via space rays . Let's finish the game up first...
