Re: Updating RA Official Map Pool

As the latest person to update the official map pool, I guess I should note, that there are two important points that should be considered and that will likely invalidate a lot of (seemingly good) intentions above: 1. You can't increase the map count to infinity, because it is made a part of distrib...

Re: Red Alert Global League: Season 9 - Post Season Discussion

Just dropping a 5c on top of what was already said above. Sadly, the league scheduling format idea I've pitched in previous post-season discussion thread was overlooked this season. Maybe worth having a second look for the next one. Also, I still think if the league is to be self-running, Rulebook s...

Re: Can host a game: Mac OS

Your ISP may (and usually does) implement NAT with dynamic IPs, which doesn't allow explicit outside connections like OpenRA sets up, because there is one or several relays on the route between your local system and outside world that can't be punched through. You'd need either an explicit static IP...

Re: RA Sea balance

@Hodor [I'd answer to PM via PM, but you have that disabled in your account so I can't send you messages :P] wonder why i cant find a big balance threat for RA. Is nobody else unhappy with that? I'd say mostly balance talks happen in Official Discord now and then fall into Github PR directly. So if ...

Re: United Conquer Cup - OpenRA Series by United Forum

Apparently ZxGanon didn't highlight his stream, so his PoV is no longer available.

Kaution has uploaded some of the streamed matches to his youtube here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCcrKDh ... X6g/videos

Re: How I can restore the original nod MLRS

MLRS is (and IIRC always was) a GDI unit.

Re: Renegade 2D (Tiberian Dawn game mode)

@cubesquare check OpenRA Discord where you can gather people to play the mod, there are occasional callouts for it.

Re: [FR] FRenzy's naval Rules

Hey, FRenzy. Are you still keen to update this (wrt feedback above)? I'm thinking of running occasional one-day King of the Hill "tournaments", similar or even incorporated into what N/a did in Open League, with the main theme being modified ruleset maps. So was considering this naval thing to featu...

The developers broke the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" rule.
You mistake "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" with "you don't see that it broke until you do" here.

Re: Walling & other cheaters

One "feature" of walls is that they do not require base provider structure (as far as I remember) and can be build near any of your structures on the map even if those don't have a Construction Yard nearby.

Re: Engine questions

Unique units are simple (see TD Commando and RA Tanya). Branching techtree can be implemented via YAML traits/conditions, so is also rather unsophisticated. Blizzard-like basebuilding - if I assume correctly that you mean buildings constructed on site by a worker unit, then yes, it is possible and i...

Re: Hello and Dune Info Request

Hey there.
FWIW Tailix Killa Mentor once completed the Harkonnen campaign, I think those videos should still be up. Check here: https://www.youtube.com/user/Tailix/videos

Somewhat outdated too, but still helpful in getting into other person's perspective on playing the game.
