    Well, what do you expect when you combine -high income with -rush? Of course it's gonna be only 5-10 minutes, and that's the purpose with those commands. A normal game is about 15-40 minutes (without total noob team on 1 ship). If you want a longer game, don't use both commands. -rush disables the natural development of available structures.

    Not much I can do.


    btw new version released with tutorial and extended the anti missile rush timer from 2 minutes to 3 minutes. However 2 minutes in -rush mode. Read the changelog for all changes...

    U should change the water into space (with little stars or things like that) as in this map people shooting with photon balls and things like that. Its more likely to happen in a space battle than in sea battle.:D
    And u could add random things like a comet hits ur shield and the shield lost 50% of its hp and things like that if u are really bored:D
    Or if u next time add a super weapon u should make something like this: for fireing this weapon ur ship has to turn off its shields for "x" time.
    its all yust suggestions.

    I won't change the water atm.

    New version 0.39b: With missile jammer! This is a temporary version, to test the new structure. If it seems to ruin the game, I'll remove it until next version. If it's good, It will stay. That's reason for 0.39b version! It's strong vs few big missiles, but weak against many weak missiles. 1 missile jammer won't do so much, so morejammer should work well with lasers, as less direct angle gives the lasers more time. Making the perfect defense.

    The jammer slightly turn the angle of the missile, and have a 2.5% chance to turn it around completely.

    Edit_

    0.39c version released early due to bug with ultra jammer (I forgot to add it to condition)

    Instead of just making more upgrades to the boosters, missile jammer is a different defense concept against missiles.

    I tried to fill the basic builders variation of structures, but this probably fits the armament specialist better.


    I played 2 games yesterday, and in one of them i got negative feedback cuz one of the enemy on the enemy ship got all his missile jammers destroyed, and he said the missile jammer sux and left the game.

    The normal missile jammer is crappy, so I'm going to buff it better in the next ver, while super and ultra jammers is balanced enough I think (It's very expensive though!). So far, the laser towers seem to be slightly better than missile jammers, but missile jammers is able to damage missiles as well with great focus, but much less damage.

    Also I'm going to adjust the jam features. If the missiles is turned to the sides, I'm going to make them go straight down instead. Missiles trying to move off the map while it's stuck, will create endless lagg eventually. Even I as the host got 3-4 sec delay cuz of that. I have to fix this!

    The jammer does have normal attacks and very long range, but deals little damage compared to laser towers.

    Can I give suggestion.

    Why don't you develop EMP missile (Electro Magnetic Pulse) that capable to disable the enemy defense shield temporary.

    Off Topic : Ugh* I damn hate to play this map cause I always had noob teammate... But I like to play this map when it comes to 1 vs 1 :grin:

    Well it's a good suggestion, but I already considered it. The reason why I haven't done it, is that when shield is down, you are very vulnerable. If you send a wave of rockets together with an EMP missile, you will slaughter them.

    So I've limited this EMP effect, to just make leak points in the shields. The photon balls already have such a minor shield EMP effect, and you not make this so deadly only the ship weapon can fire 30 of them every time. If you fired them from launchers, you would have pwned them to easy. Some restrictions there.

    I think 1v1 is boring, then I will rather prefer 2v2. Also when you play with many players, you can turn on -highincome to increase gold generation. That might make 4v4 game more fun.

    There's a little slight gold advantage of having several player on same team. If the teamwork is flawless, you may win against less players
    5 players = 12.5% increased gold generation
    4 players = 10% increased gold generation
    3 players = 7.5% increased gold generation
    2 players = 5% increased gold generation
    1 player = 2.5% increased gold generation


    And I've adjusted the missile jammer again, no big update. The reason why it's expensive is that it's effective against all missiles, even the expensive ones.

    But, when you play with stranger and you had no luck. You would always team with a idiot.

    Can you change the mini map preview, it look more like a smoke instead of missile.

    Off Topic : Yeah, I create a lot of map since I kinda bored lately. But, there is somebody who is even more mad. I had seen a person with 3 pages of his map. With a total map of up to 50-60 map. Me just 11 map... :grin:

    I disagree, I think it looks very missile like and is more likely to catch attractive attention rather than a dull map view.


    _____

    New version!

    Due to lack of my creativity, the outcome was just 1 new system, 2 new structures, 2 new projectiles and 7 new abilities.

    I haven't mentioned the 2 new projectiles, but they are part of the 2 new abilities for the new super weapon: THE CONTROL CENTER!!! :grin:

    That won't be much of a problem now, as the 2 new structures are powered by noob energy :cute:

    All this is untested, but hopefully no bugs.

    The map is really nice, but the masses of special effects makes the game very laggy, e.g. when both teams fire all of their special weapons. This should be fixed somehow.

    Well, moving lots of units is very laggy.

    This is the trigger used for missile movement

    • Unit Move
      • Events
        • Time - Every 0.05 seconds of game time
      • Conditions
      • Actions
        • Unit Group - Pick every unit in Move and do (Actions)
          • Loop - Actions
            • Set TempPoint1 = (Position of (Picked unit))
            • Set TempPoint2 = (TempPoint1 offset by 50.00 towards (Facing of (Picked unit)) degrees)
            • Unit - Move (Picked unit) instantly to TempPoint2
            • Custom script: call RemoveLocation (udg_TempPoint1)
            • Custom script: call RemoveLocation (udg_TempPoint2)
        • Unit Group - Pick every unit in MoveLaser and do (Actions)
          • Loop - Actions
            • Set TempPoint1 = (Position of (Picked unit))
            • Set TempPoint2 = (TempPoint1 offset by 45.00 towards (Facing of (Picked unit)) degrees)
            • Unit - Move (Picked unit) instantly to TempPoint2
            • Custom script: call RemoveLocation (udg_TempPoint1)
            • Custom script: call RemoveLocation (udg_TempPoint2)


    I'm not sure if a different code would make any difference.

    Edit_

    I would like to hear feedback about the recently added control center. It may be difficult for it to get mana, but if you survived a major attack or had a leaver, you should have enough energy to perform attacks.

    Well,
    I just decided to play this randomly and I got some good things to say. =]
    Its great, lots of good game play, Tho there are some things that I should point out.
    The "Weapons" spell, it lags just a bit, and seems really weak, my Opinion, and than.
    The "3 Novolith Torpedoes" only fires 2 of them, not 3.
    Anyways, Great job, keep up the great work. =]

    For moving the units you could have created 3 dummy units behind the enemy ship. You then simply order the missiles to attack these. However, the missiles will deviate from their course to attack other targets.
    Downsides: less realistic missile movement, you need a trigger to destroy units if they reach the dummies
    Upsides: less lag

    Note: the dummy units must be invulnerable, otherwise it doesn't work.

    ty Darkenneko_003 for making me aware of that novalith bug. It's fixed!

    I have finally fixed the kick bug (hopefully), which caused the team to die.


    DrazharLn, your suggestion is very simple, but the missiles move at a speed of 1000 pr second, so their movement must be triggered. I've also changed the move trigger time frequency from 0.05 to 0.06 seconds, which hopefully will make the game slightly less laggier.


    Many people have suggested to make the missiles locust and make all kind of defense triggered as well, but I find it very unnecessary. I'llk keep them as selectable, what's wrong with selecting a missile? You can select them to see their strength and remaining hp.

    And missiles doesn't follow order, they just stand still (getting instantly moved by a trigger), and dies when their expiration timer ends.

    Regarding the Control Centre, I've never really found it to be a game-ending weapon: For the napalm and lightning bombs to have any effect, the enemy shields have to be down anyway, and if they're out, the game is over already :p. In addition, Earthcrack is either too weak (It's not able to kill a cluster of non-upgraded boosters) or too strong (if two people do it at once, and it can take out perhaps a quarter of the enemy shield boosters). Perhaps you could add a restriction of one command centre per team to stop the latter, and a system whereby the bonus provided by shield boosters diminishes as they take damage. However.. that would be rather fiddly to do :p.
    I like the idea of the control centre, though, even though I normally don't waste enough energy to power it up.

    Also, with missile jammers - when they turn a missile around entirely, i've never seen the missile last long enough to hit the other ship's shield. Are they meant to, or is turning them around just a way to completely get rid of them from your ship?

    PS, Darkenneko - The ships weapons, I've always found, are a lot better when used in concert with your missiles. The ship's lasers are dreadful against shields, but five seconds sustained fire on a ship which has them down will basically obliterate them, the torpedoes have such a large explosion radius, one of them going up will cripple you, and the photon balls, with their delicious, tasy, scrumptious shield-breaking effects.. *pauses a moment to salivate* are wonderful at letting antimatter shots straight through the outer shield and into the neglected inner shields.

    I know general1,
    But I Like testing everything, =]
    I Spent the last moment of the game, sending about... 9 Novolith Torpedoes, 2 Plasma Torpedoes, a Lazer Strike, and a few other things at the enemy. =]
    Great Game.

    Indeed. The end of the game get somewhat.. annoying. I was playing a game where my outer shields were about 85,000 hp, and it would cost the enemy more to take them down than it would for me to restore it. They'd fire three novaliths off to destroy them, and I could put them back up for a fifth of the cost. Same for them, of course. Methinks that the ship shield restore option should become increasingly expensive as your shields get larger - it would, after all, require more energy to restore a larger shield.

    There is another thing, which isnt solved the best way, the harvesting. Everybody wants to get as much gold as possible and build masses of harvester, so that some other players wont get enough gold to play normal. You should change the method of getting gold, you should improve it, that every player gets the same amount of gold.

    Regarding the control center, it's napalm and thunder bombs does only 48 damage to the shield. The unique abilities with those bombs, is that they cannot be jammed whatsoever, and you can manually aim with them, which makes them very ideal. If the enemies shield is down, you can do a surgical strike with those weapons. But these weapons are not meant to kill the enemies shields, but for precise strikes.

    Regarding the earthcrack ability, I don't think it does stack with another earthcrack spell in same area at the same time. Also it shouldn't cause much damage, cuz this ability bypass the shield. I'm going to add a counter to this ability, so it's possible for enemy command center to stop earthcrack attack.

    Control centers power is a luxury. That's why you have drain ability, but your energy disappears fast.However EM field and Massive ECM Jam is untested, im not sure if those are to unbalanced.

    The purpose with the missile jammer is simply to turn the missiles away from your ship, and not to cause damage to the enemy. The original concept was to make the missiles go at the sides, but moving objects on the edge of the map causes laggs.

    Jammers are more expensive than the lasers cuz they are able to negate attacks, even the expensive missiles. However they cannot jam ships lasers or do anything to parasites. They are not able to handle masses of nukes either, since they only affect 2-3 missiles each at the time, but quite formidable defense in addition to the laser tower.


    Well the instant recharge of the shield is an old one from the original. Maybe I do something with in later versions. Maybe I make it a dynamic instant recharge so it turn on the shields if they are down and refill the remaining hp loss to shield as suffered to X money. If player don't have sufficient money, his remaining gold is use to regen = to his remaining. Maybe a buffer cost of 500/1000 + 20hp pr gold. But well see...

    I keep it as it is now. If i replace them with gold mines, only 1 player at the time can enter it, so the current harvesting system is better than that. Also it's hard harvesting competition if there are many players. Currently to partially counter this problem, it is a gold oncome increase of 2,5% pr player on each team. In this way, a team with more players should have slightly better advantage. I added this to buffer the loss of effective teamwork.
