Re: [Solved] - Ore and Gem value on a map

I think the gradual growth per cell placing is a good aesthetic, but can also pose issues. So being quite meticulous will prevent mis placings that can't be seen which send harvesters on random drives, uneven $$$, uneven growth and uneven harvesting times. But those last two have not been fully test...

Re: Tournament Format Brainstorm

Invite expired.. I'd like to see the next team tourny have random team selection. Maybe even random teams every game. Winners get points, so there ends up being a single winner, not a team winner. SuperNewbie, the oil capture game was an idea i thought would be quite fun too. It has to be called Ame...

Re: Ore and Gem value on a map

I believe you can go in multiples of 25$ with ore. Use the 'total $$$ on map' amount for 1st made ore patch. Then make a note of that number. Times that by 2, then make a new ore patch equalling so the total $$$ on map equals the "times 2" amount. When adding 3rd,4th, etc, just make a note of the cu...

Re: Red Alert Global League: Season 8 - Map Pool

I don't recognise Ice Ledge without a screenshot.

Trapped or Sonoro, i guess.

Merrigold Town needs an ERCC i think. Too puts you behind noticably. Though only saying to prevent future issues.

Re: Map Making Guide

Imho it would be a good idea to start putting this at https://github.com/OpenRA/book, so it doesn't get buried in the forums over time. (I opened https://github.com/OpenRA/book/issues/16 so that we don't lose track of this.) Could you clean the stickies/annoucements that are old, and replace with n...

Re: New RTS Game

I don't see why anyone wouldn't be interested, either a little or a lot. As we're are all mostly looking forward to the new C&C iteration currently in the works. So please do tell and share ;)

Re: Naval in an ideal world?

Hi Ronald, I'm pretty sure eskimo aimed the question at OpenRA's RA and intentionally didn't impose the restriction upon answers of having to fit into any universe. Even if they don't fit, the ideas here could inspire other (map)mods, too, or just be interesting to read. In response to Ronald, yeah...

Re: The Dark Tournament Recursion - Post Mortem

Awesome event, wish i could of made it. Looks like you did a stellar job too. I couldn't get the live vibe when rewatching, so can't comment on any in-game player reactions, which i think is the most entertaining part of a dark tourny for me. Would of liked to see more of the mini games played, or p...

Re: Giving back to the OpenRA community - OpenRA "Getting Started Guide"

Apologies, forgot to post here before, (when it got linked on the Academy). This is really top work. The amount of time this must of taken... I hope it comes in handy for those new to ORA. It took me a while to pick up on certain hot keys and commands, so this would of been ideal for me when i first...

Naval in an ideal world?

Quite simply, what does Naval look like in an ideal world of RA?

Grab your chronosphere and tell me what it looks like.

Question is short, context is open, as i'd not like to restrict people's thought processes.

Thanks
