Bug?

You can build on bridges... whether thats a bug, or a version thing...

Nevertheless, with an iron curtain, you have a floating tesla coil, packed with awesomeness.

Tested it out myself.

Jope... you are now able to build on bridges and i absolutely got no idea why.

But building defenses on water might be cool.

If there is anyone who is able to make a few icons for the buildings and units it would be great.

As i said before i got not shp-knowledge nor talent.

Erm... Harrison has made a few SHPs, whether he's willing to distribute and/or cater your needs is a different matter. I'm assuming he would, but i don't know. Raminator is making his own showcase, but i think he's using SHPs from other games. Ask either of those guys, but i'm pretty useless here.

Heh... for now my plan is to learn by doing and by asking.

When the developers release some info on traits i will go more into gameplay anyway.

But being able to atleast add some scenery and buildings would be great.

There a few bugs i can't get out of my mod and it would be great if somebody could give me an advice:

1. The Transporthelicopters ability to build infantry only works after a barracks is built after constructing the helicopter. One got to do this for every new transport-helicopter to make it work. So how do i get him to allow to build infantry without building a new barracks after eacht helicopter?

2. Is it somehow possible to disable friendly-fire for aircraft? its always killing itself.
For now i devided the 2 aircrafts and helicopters of eacht faction in a ground-attacking-one and an air-attacking-one but in a crowd they always kill themselfs.

3. Is it possible to let specialpowers cost money?

4. Is it possible to get instant specialpowers? (I wan't to combine it with #3)

Thanks in advance!

There's a huge exploit for the MCV/ConYard; you can just keep deploying/packing over and over again and rack up a bundle of credits, $500 at a time. Whether this is intentional or not I don't know, but it effectively results in infinite money.

Heyho,

thanks for mentioning this.

I think if i reduce the time between getting cash and the cashamount, the time packing/placing would make no difference.

Heyho,

did an update and added a new subfaction.

I guess i have to switch to win7, because vista won't let me run any tool provided on the forums.
