Artillery

Post by Olix » Mon Jan 01, 2018 11:35 am

I am really enjoying the new Artillery! The logistics problem of getting ammo out to my walls is interesting (I never bothered before for gun or flamethrower turrets). However, I feel like I out-gun the biters too much now - particular if I use the artillery in manual aim mode, the range is huge!

Is there any plan to increase the capabilities of the biters in late game, to compensate? Something like a 'wave attack', as in the recent They Are Billions, could work: all biter nests within the range of pollution could launch a simultaneous attack, would could put stress on the player's energy grid and logistics network.

Yes laser drain energy and its problem when wave of all bitters around attack. But try for once most OP turrent out there - flame. Even without upgrades it does massive damage and all what you need is crude oil + walls (like 1k of oil of it for entire outpost for long long time). No need for energy, easy to deliver fuel, only downside is it does need walls.

I would call artillery OP because it goes very late and nukes are also common at this point.

I just noticed that the biters sometimes run away from my factory rather than towards it when I target their nests with artillery, particularly if they are far away. I feel kind of sorry for them :(

I also tend to find bugs hanging around in random places after the artillery train leaves. Do they de-spawn after a certain time?
