Re: Combat robots useless?

I think a lot of the problems can be narrowed down to the lack of variety or need to adapt. Enemies are constant, they always behave and act the same way. Some different kinds of enemies that behave differently and serve different purposes would be a good start, but wouldn't solve the problem entire...

More aggressive and advanced biter expansion

I would like to see biters be more aggressive and proactive with their expansion, both in building new nests and improving existing ones. Giving either biters or spitters the ability to construct living walls and grow more worms would make it more difficult to attack the larger, more entrenched bite...

Re: Map Gen Starting Area Options

An "advanced world gen" menu that lets you assign numerical values to the different variables for world generation would suffice here, I think.

Re: [Solved] Always Tons of Enemy

"Starting Area", with the options being sizes, is very straightforward. I don't see how that's poorly designed.

Re: Pollution Electric furnace vs Steel furnace

I think that a baseline electric furnace should be a bit less efficient than a steel furnace. They can, afterall, be fitted with modules that improve efficiency or speed.

Re: Supression of the size shift of electric furnaces

I think the advantage of not needing fuel anymore makes the cost of needing to redesign your forges worth it. Not everything should be a flat upgrade, there should be significant downsides (besides resource cost) to certain higher-tier objects and whatnot. You have to make the decision between the s...

Re: [0.11.1] Gates and Cars

I think it's a good mechanic to have in the game. You need to slow down to go in through a gate. This will especially be more meaningful if the game takes an RTS direction and drone-tanks are entering or exiting a fort. Likewise, greater amounts of players entering or exiting a fort than just one. I...

Re: A Bulldozer

I do not support this idea.

I prefer forests standing as a significant obstacle that can be cleared with a large time investment, or once you reach a fairly advanced level of technology (construction bots and deconstruction orders).

Re: RTS direction

If you decide to go a more RTS route, I would like to see players be able to customize their drones, auto-tanks, or whatever, to an extreme degree. Different types of weapons, different types, materials, and calibers of bullets, different barrel lengths, magazine sizes, propulsion systems, energy st...

Resource Production, Usage Philosophy; Share Your Thoughts

Re: Multi-Track Drifting Deja Vu

Games were made to be fun. Not to simulate the real world. So why not add pink bunnys with machine guns? 1.) This reasoning is really freaking stupid. 2.) Wouldn't be fun due to complete immersion breaking. It doesn't fit the game. Multi-track drifting doesn't ruin the atmosphere of the game, just ...

Not enough copper to do so yet, and it's still difficult and dangerous to reach the small copper mining base.

A new strategy must be developed due to the impracticality of replacing destroyed tanks with the current resource shortage. Moving parallel to the edge of the Hive ...

I'll give a small scale mining operation a go. I hadn't even considered mining by hand. I will report back with results after trying it out.

Oh, and for fuel, I don't use coal for fuel anymore. I use solid fuel made from petroleum, so much more efficient.
