No. No alien suffer from fall damage IIRC, they all have "fallDamage 0.0" (I suppose it's a multiplier)

Re: Humans are complementary. What about aliens?

Aliens can cooperate as Adv Goon sniping and Tyrant defending/blocking enemys Adv Marauder can harass zap and depleate laser weapons or jetpack i think. and in 0.52 the granger can trapp enemys > Adv Goon sniping and Tyrant defending/blocking enemys Tyrant will also prevent the goon to flee. Or the...

Rebalance tyrants

I just did some tests, for fun. A marauder jumping on a telenode deals ~12 damages. A dragoon jumping on a telenode deals ~28 damages. A tyrant jumping on a telenode deals .... ~28 damages, again. I think a good way to make tyrants beasts you don't want to see in your base is, increase their mass (i...

Re: make spawning and artificial ammo cost money

What happens when one player of a team runs out of money? :bugeyes: And what when he dies then? There is currently a mechanism which gives players 200 credits every 2 minutes, so, in worst case, you'd need to wait. But I would see such idea (improved a lot, of course) as an "instadeath" m...

make spawning and artificial ammo cost money

Currently, dretch, granger, adv granger, naked human, rifle, and construction kit cost no money. The only reason you get some points when killing them is, there is a hard-coded minimum value. Few days ago, I was thinking "what if spawning had a cost, increasingly high as game grows older?"...

Humans are complementary. What about aliens?

Humans have many valid tactical choices: * mobility versus resilience (jetpack+armour vs battlesuit) * slow but accurate high shots vs close fight weapons (mass driver, las gun, pulse rifle vs most weaons) This is nice, and fun, and combine nicely, making human teams fun to play. But, what about ali...

Gameplay explanations

I, for long, was confused about imbalance in unvanquished. I said that more than often on IRC, but its like a mandala: it's beautiful for few hours, and forgotten few minutes after. I think there should be a real «gameplay» definition, with the "what should be reached", the "how to re...

Re: AI improvements

Places where bots can be stuck without navmesh deficiencies also exist. For example, exiting from the depicted human base to the right, there are some shallow holes which human bots can fall into. This one is worked around in parpax mini: there are grids to prevent the problem. Note that in origina...

mine generator

I think turrets are way too strong for tier 0 and tier 1 defenses. I would like to make them tier2 and tier 3, respectively, and give humans a mine generator as tier 0 defense building. It would work like this: * generates a mine in a random place within a radius every few periods of time * mines di...

Re: AI improvements

tyrants really needs improvements:

* devolve when base attacked by a human playing "chat perché"
* don't go heal when allies are too close (block allies moves otherwise)

Also:

* bots should go inspect beacons (that seems easier to do than some team awareness improvements actually)
