Re: TD balance thread

I want to remind you that plane delivery times still depend on map width. On "Blood And Sand" (144x144) it takes about 18 seconds for a plane to deliver, while on Chokepoint (64x32) it's only about 8 seconds. I kind of think, that makes delivery times a little unreliable to use them for balancing. ...

Re: Redesigning and Balancing TD

The plan is to let the plane come from the edge that is closest, right or left. Also to have the speed a bit faster and have a deacceleration before landing and then accelerate up to the same speed after the landing. Then we can make the delivery a function of the time instead of the map size and it...

Re: Redesigning and Balancing TD

This is something I'm working on at the moment. Me and pchote/slepnir had a long conversation about this.

Right now it adds 8 seconds to production on a small map, (width: 56 cell) and on a large map (width: 128 cell) it will add 17 seconds.

Re: TD balance thread

Need to change airstrike power to: Not always come from left side of map. This screws player who happent to have base on left side of map hard as barely have any time to react. Ideally they would use position of using players conyard to target location angle like in most Gen:Zh mods. The planes to ...

Re: TD = Tower Defence

I've noticed many games with the balance changes have become really tower spammy, specifically AGT all over the damn place accompanied with base pushing. Mesacer uses this tactic heavily. Unfortunately its so effective it will catch on and become the norm, tower defence is not RTS. Ok, I think the ...

Switching back to classic-style production is an option if multi-queue really is causing fundamental problems and players are looking for radical solutions to fix that. I think the majority of the TD player base is not in favor of going back to single queue system. It is one thing that makes it dif...

* Price increased to 650$ APC being the same price as T2 light tanks is frankly offensive to me. Light tanks should be it's hard counter. The APC should be 500, the same as the recon, and be appropriately balanced. I like the idea of reverting to machine gun on the APC and I propose we try that bef...

Under some debates with Anjew on Discord a few problems were found out about the APC. I recently saw about a few weeks ago that the vision range on the APC is 7. Scouters (Buggies/Hummers) have 8 and tanks have 6. Knowing this I had plans to reduce the vision of APCs to 6. However, as the discussio...

@GDave: --------------------- Good points to make for the person who modded the map. That is presently why im going around asking about it. It happens to be that "APCs are OP because of price" is not a good reason with me. I have already explained the reasons why being that in a start game match yo...
