Re: A Special Announcement from EA

For my crazy thoughts on the subject... Remasters are nice. If remasters are to occur, I would like to see Red Alert 2 and Tiberian Sun remastered. Updated graphics, sound, balance changes, and so on would be welcomed. Having mod support would be my #1 priority , because I see C&C alive in the hands...

Sire's Workshop

While I would make a proper topic with all the details and nuances, at the moment I am only making this topic for the "AI" I made by messing around in the ai.yaml file. This is mostly because I have taken a break from making things in OpenRA. I'll format this topic properly at a later date, but for ...

Many thanks for hosting the Map Design Contest and congratulations to the winners! It was pretty fun to be making some maps for OpenRA. (I would have voted, but as I registered for the contest, I was not eligible.) As for my suggestions... 1. Completely revamp the categories . There will be the main...

Thanks for catching the error! I don't remember how I got the 6x6 value, but it is actually supposed to be $8,600. I fixed the picture.

I sorta got back into mapping for OpenRA and decided to try and make a reference for Ore Fields and the respective money amounts. I used the included editor's function for counting how much money is on the map to determine these values. I do not know if they are accurate or not, but I hope it proves...

I do vastly prefer this list than the one currently on the playtest, but if I could make two suggestions, they would be. 1. Break of Day (4 Player Map) 2. East vs West 3 (3 v 3) I know Break of Day is probably not the most balanced map ever, but from my casual TD standpoint, it somehow feels like an...

Just going to throw in my own thoughts about my process of making maps. 1. Objectives The most important thing for me when making a map is to establish various objectives for the player to take on. Of course, the main objective is "Destroy All Opposition," but there should be "sub-objectives" for pl...

Hmm. A shame these forums are not used as much then. I am more of a message board guy than an IRC one.

Thanks for all of your insights!

I love the idea for the technology center, I once proposed something similar during a SoScared stream. Right now each subfaction has access to one special vehicle: Phase Tank - Chrono Tank - Mobile Gap Generator - Tesla Tank - Demo Truck I would like to see the technology center give you random acc...

While I will miss the British Spy from a casual standpoint, I do not mind if it was replaced with the British Sniper Drop (or simply just being able to train Snipers like Tesla Troopers, either at T2 with the Radar Dome or T3 with the Tech Center). If the cloak is an issue for the Sniper, then can o...

I find that "General Discussion" and "Question & Answer" topics are usually separated on message boards. Regarding thread spam, as this board is somewhat small in terms of community and does not seem to have designated topic(s), "thread spam" becomes somewhat common (especially among newly registere...
