Bulldozer to fill in water tiles

Post by bar10dr » Wed Apr 23, 2014 12:27 am

It would be nice to have a high tier bulldozer that you could use to fill in water tiles with.

To make it less OP perhaps you could make it a whole vehicle pack to move dirt.

Digger to dig up earth and put the dirt on a belt (the dirt tiles you dig up produces a water tile)
Bulldozer to push the dirt into the water and make the tile from water to land.

Something like that would be fun :)

I like this idea but think it would be better suited as a mod. Unless they decide to add 'dirt industry' to the game. :p

There's also a problem of pathfinding to consider.

Wouldn't it be the same as removing a building except marking it as not attackable?

I believe not, since biters do path through buildings: they simply attack them when they get stuck, but I might be wrong on this one.
