Re: Testing the 0.52 Release Candidate

What would be great, would be to have a script in the archive to launch daemon with parameters so that it would not be able to touch normal setup. This can actually be added to the list of things which should be fixed for 0.53: be able to have multiple versions installed side-by-side, which will pro...

Re: Different lose conditions

I like the idea of having more loose conditions, and, to be honest, I would prefer to see __win conditions__ instead, which could be voted for at intermission (there's no such thing for now I think?). One can take inspiration from several games. For example: * adding a 3rd "neutral" team w...

Re: Our new jetpack

My opinion, the jetpack shouldn't lose fuel when attacked by an alien, for the other it's perfect. This is so that aliens can fight back. Otherwise, jetpack users are simply invulnerable while still being able to deliver high damages to their targets. I'm not the one which implemented that, but I l...

Re: Build points considerations

For example, last night we played on Arachnid (tremulous map), I played all the time destroying spammed leechs around the map. Final results? Human lost. I'm not sure it's the map I'm thinking of, but yes, some maps allow aliens to hide well. I don't think it's always worth hunting miners, tbh, it'...

Is it only if one lagged out/crashed or also if you normally disconnect and reconnect again?


Well, maybe it is possible with current codebase. I'm just saying, as far I know, but really, I know nothing, so can't see far :)

Re: Alien siege weapons

Spam is nice, but... It feels like the gameplay is not built around this possibility. Also, I have no idea of how and when buildings start to be disabled. That information would be precious to see if that can be used to add stuff more oriented toward that idea of sieges. We could maybe visualize som...

Re: Humans are complementary. What about aliens?

Your original point is still valid though, since the aliens don't have as much reason to be complementary on the "loadout" level as humans might. I just have to imagine it's a tough problem in terms of design because of the tactical differences I mentioned. I don't say there's an easy way...

Re: Alien siege weapons

For the record, drills/leeches already affect enemy team mining structures in the same way that they affect their own team's. The maximum penalty to a mining structure from proximity to one other mining structure is -50% (if they are in the same place). It can be harder to notice the effect of an e...

Re: Request credit

AFAIK it's not possible, but it's a feature you're not the only one to wish, I can say for sure.

Re: Rebalance tyrants

Basically, I think what determines the damages is something like speed multiplied by mass multiplied by a constant. Since tyrants almost don't jump, their increased mass is ridiculous compared to goon's, when it comes to damages. it's currently of 500, versus 200 for dragoon, 50 for marauder, 30 for...
