Filling water with land

Post by sirrush90 » Tue May 20, 2014 10:54 pm

I think it would be a great idea to include mechanisms of filling water with land. As it is now, if you run out of room next to a body of water you're out of luck. Being able to do the opposite (remove land and fill with water to make artificial lakes) would also be very useful and interesting, especially in terms of defense.

If I'm honest, I think the ability to make lakes would make defending your factory and outposts too easy.

Biters can't swim (yet) and as such, they can't attack your base if you've surrounded it with water.

At that point, all you have to do to win the game is build rocket defenses on an island, and cut it off from land. No challenge at all.

However, building land over water could be useful, at the cost of some defensibility. That would be a worthwhile trade, IMHO.
