HEY, What about Air/Water enemies? (sp/en w/PD)

Post by TurkleTrenox »

(ESPAÑOL)
Seria interesante, en un nivel de evolución más avanzado, que los Biters y/o Splitters desarrollaran la habilidad de surcar las masas de agua o volar para obligar al jugador a consumir recursos en su base y así fomentar más exploración (en busca de recursos obviamente) además, esto haria que cada jugador mejorara su paraiso fiscal (islas artificiales) para protegerse de los aliens.

Pd: encontré su avión equipo de Factorio ;)

The pathfinder doesn't currently work well when pathing through tiles that normally a biter collides with.

There are ways around this through the mod api, but scaling to large amounts of units becomes the problem.

From a purely gameplay perspective, adding flying or swimming enemies would remove any element of terrain control - as the single impassable barrier (water) would suddenly become passable.

So without different terrain or other gameplay dynamics, I can't see this adding to the game - though I would love to see the art for flying and swimming critters.

Sea worms... that surface periodically next to your water pumps and launch an ICBM nuke at a random target in your factory if you don't kill it in time.

Amphibian biters.

Because sometimes I feel guilty just planting artillery with logistics on islands and letting it decimate all the biters.

Oooh, thanks Koub. I'll try to search more.

Glad to know there are like minded masochists :) Please note the artillery use case!
