I wanted to share some thoughts on this outside of the game. LT: Cost 850, +HP, +Vision, +Heavy Damage, -Light Damage I'm mostly okay with this though I do have my reservations about it. MT: Cost 1000, +HP, +Damage Same as above. Arty: Cost 900, +Health, +Accuracy, +Turn Rate, -Reload Speed, -Projec...

I agree with net, Eskimo, whocares, and mo. 1) there isn't a specific type of map we need more of. small, medium, large, huge, chokey, high eco, low eco, naval, etc. New maps bring in a wave of fresh air. Sidestep is a great map but I'm happy not having to play that map for a long time. Not every ma...

I mean the wikia says they were modified dump trucks to gather the resources. There are a few irl samples that look just like ore trucks without the scoop in the front.

Just adding another random thought too.. instead of assuming the Hind would get unlocked at tier 2 with a radar dome for Soviets as it currently is for Allies, for balancing would it help at all to push it back to tier 3 and require a tech center? Out of curiosity is that how it was in the original...

Like zinc said in Openra allies have the superior airforce. Hinds are better than yaks and longbows are much better than Migs. But that isn't to say that Soviets are at a complete disadvantage there. Both Yaks and Migs can do things that the allied player can't. Asymmetry is good, but there is a tip...

And in an attempt to get back on topic, an idea for Navy balance is why not make the missle sub a tier 2 unit? and balance it more as an under water destroyer.. have its aa function a little more similar to destoryer, could possibly be unlocked with just a radar dome instead of a tech center. have ...

A too-common theme I have seen across these are that people like OpenRA in general but feel let down by what they see as arbitrary and unnecessary changes in the RA mod. Then a greater effort needs to be made to explain why these changes are not arbitrary. And if they are arbitrary we need to ask o...

It's important to note that just adding the sea scorpion doesn't make the current balance problems go away. tier 1 would still allies dominated. tier 2 still strongly in their favor (hinds wouldn't be uncontested anymore). Tier 3 would be a bit closer as missile subs would be safer. Sea Scorpion act...

^ That was actually one of the things I was looking into when I contacted you on discord the other day. This is certainly an avenue we can explore. did a little research. In the original gunboats/destroyers only used depth charges on subs. Destroyers got 2 while gun boats had 1. Subs fired torpedoes...

Migs definitely can deal with destroyers but the micro and the chance of something going wrong is very high. Hence why that was also a disadvantage. demo truck cannot be iron curtained. It will detonate just like chrono. Giving destroyers 3 sea mines that can't by refilled could be a fun idea too bu...
