If it's a new model,Imagine it being something the Kraken of Age of Mythology.

It's short range is intended though.

Ah,crap,i never truly tested the Navy metagame ether.

Uh,then doesn't that mean the bigger units would turn REAL slow?

It's actually called traverse speeds,not turn rates.

But why is everything..........slower?

Kraken is fine,for a mass produced minor naval XP.......just needs to be able to do something than just what it's made for.

It's just like the Willfindja.....

Though, to be frank,ive yet to truly test the Tactical building metagame,but i guess this is what you mean by the other factions need better tactical weapons....

Gosh, i dont even think this is the right time to discuss this yet.Even i never truly tested the effectiveness of each weapon.

And i remember tactical missiles had a use somewhere back then, but i dont even remember what for now....

Yeah, more turtling,yay.

Though, i did think the UEF would try make something like that.....

But then you are forgetting the XP shield generator AEGIS.

With both,you get a near unstoppable defense.

It's not the model,it's the DPS method.

This is why i like knowing how the finer parts of the game works,it happens somewhat in more hardcore games.It allows for more uniqueness in variety.

You know why Shotguns don't work beyond short range?
It's the same reason.
Land,unlike air squadrons, do not necessarily converge in their attack patterns and are 2-3 times more tougher.

If there was to be a new unique turret for the Aeon, try the Seraphim T2 Uttaushala Beam Turret from FA for variety.

Hmm any changes to them efficiency wise? Now that XP units have been given their longeivity back, i think we would want them to the turtler crackers.....

But the Aeon one kinda sucked though,the method was not good for general area denial purposes......

Here's a list of the XP units that are considered gimped.

Cybransaurus Rex - Too overspecialised.Only good part is the decent dps.
1. Slow Speed.
2. Short Range.

(This is one mech design i actually would have wanted you and Avitus to make a new generation of. A new gen Lizardbot.
I would call the Dragon and Wyren Dragonbots though,they are too distinct from the C-Rex family.)

Kraken -Navy,i know.For a so called unit with a terrifying name,it's not that scary.It actually works as a mass producable AA XP sub,but subs are also supposed to destroy ships and other subs.

1.Insufficient DPS.
2.Could use a slight speed buff.

(Also another candidate i see potential in it's future for it's design,i would make a real XP that would terrify the sea,called Scylla,with an intended assault siege design in mind.)

Airnomo - as spoken of before.
1.DPS method is not good for it's intended purpose. Shot impulse speed is decent,but still it's intial alpha damage is too weak for each shot.
(I would have made it AA Flak to be honest as a method,but we cant change that in game property,can we?)

Willfindja -as spoken of before.For a sea hunter,i know it's meant to destroy subs,but because of it's XP class,we should buff it some to let it perform an anti naval role as well.
1.Drone ai,hard to fix issue,nothing much might could be done.(Dont know the real specifics,needs testing)
2.Poor Range to kill anything at sea except subs.
3.Too squishy.

I understand some XPs just arent supposed to be all great when they debut,but every XP should be useful sometime in the game.

Even back in SC and FA,everything had a function that would work some way or another.

Well,though my help will one day come to a limit,just as you guys will hit the limits of the SC2 engine.

(If only we could just replace or upgrade those gimped designs one choice but to work around them for now.....)

I'm still left wondering if we could "replace" some units,specifically,some gimped XPs,with newly modded custom replacements......

Would the veterancy change mechanic work regarding that btw??


From my perspective though,i think they should make SC 3 or a reboot SC with a new engine that allows good realism like UAW,but still being able to have it's trademark capability of rendering 1000s of units....

I'm just a guy who's got too much time on his hands at times and wanted to see how he could help such a wonderful revolutionary work.

Believe it or not,i'm been wanting a good RTS game for a long while.The genre's quite stale by now, with only StarCraft 2 around.

Most i can do to help you guys is offering my perspective.
A bit of lore intergration and some new modern ideas from today's sci fi could revitalise this game.

[Like the Revamp Dynamic question of UEF not having enough tanks,you don't have to say it's because Avitus and Leosake like mechs,hurr...

I can make up some canonical explanation that would work.]

(As i told Leosake,judging from how warfare is conducted in SC universe,it's (in game universe setting technologically) stale in comparison when you compare it to the likes of other RTS that came after it.)

Not my position to comment then, i dont have a code monkey for a brother,but a modeller.

Well,i think once 1.2 is out i'm offering my gratitude finally....and some apologies for being a cynical ****.....

Cause i as spoke with leosake,he had a point,we don't know what you guys are dealing with,i had no choice but to pry some info and discuss slowly to get a good idea what the situation of the game really is in now.

Well sorry if i did insult, i wasn't here when 1.05 was made.

But you gotta admit,more and more people are starting to try crack and mod the game now.

You guys may not be alone anymore,but i'm sure you guys will be the first real SC 2 mod.

Anyway, i have 1 more reason why the MLs and Colossus should take back their real historical position,(insults both of their designs, nuff said.) is that you ignore something as well in the same room.

The Cybransaurus Rex.

Unfortunately,like the other gimped things in the game,this is a case of mismatched identity.
It acts too much like Aeon specialised purpose design philosophy.

It's too short ranged,slow speed.
Only good dps,but its good for killing small land fry.That's it.

In universe wise, sadly,there's not much i can do to speak in it's favor for any buffs to it's design.
See,some experimentals/prototype designs arent so good YET at that point of time they debutted.

It happens in warfare.
Only after refinement,then they can actually work.

All i can do to speak for the Cybransaurus Rex is this.

It was the ancestor of a new kind of Experimental Lizardbot, Salamander.
An improvement over the old design.

It would be best to change the FAQ regarding maps to say you guys dont plan on doing any.

The guy at SC 2013 said he would be trying the map modding field.if it works i say its a good thing someone could make different maps.

Still no idea who did Emerald Sunrise though.

Rtys8 Mar 8 2013, 8:26am replied:

Aeon have alot of useless XP that dont work for their intended functions.

Airnomo - Poor Method to Begin with.ROF AA lasers are like T1 AA towers.

Soopriser - Has it's uses,but extremely situational.
(I mentioned it's probably a beginning of an Artillery Battleship,but there's not much we can do to give it weaponry fitting of one.I say we might have to leave it like the Protoss Mothership.A white elephant.)

{You have played Commander and Conquer i think,so you should know what an Artillery Battleship is.)

Wilfindja - Something about the Drones AI,poor range to be able to hunt down navy units.

Well,back in the day they were actually darn fun as a rush to go XP assassin.

Megalith II s just dont have the same feel. Similar,but not same.
Speaking of which,MLs,Cicadas.

In the far future of SC 3 i predict,where unit types are diversified,the ML would be the spearhead of a Cybran Espionage Forcse....

Hmm that reminds me,thanks alot.(stupid me for forgetting)

But you guys are aware that the Aeon do not use the same naming system for newer editions of existing designs right?

Please stick back with history this time.No way in hell a Stealth bot should beat a Specialised Assault bot one on one in a direct fight.(this arguements has been tired and streched,dont make say it all again)

Part of the fun i remember using Old MLs was that they were good cheap XP assassins if needed.Please put em back in their real historical role.

Naw,given that the design still works,but its just not as strong in the current era as it is supposed to be.

We should be looking to a new aeon Epic XP counterpart instead.Something with a strong image.

Rtys8 Mar 6 2013, 4:42pm replied:

That's part of charm of the Cybran.Sneaky,Mechanically Menacing.Which is why i think the mecha direction is an improvement for a new era.

But,You gotta admit,just at this point of time ,the other factions have too little good toys.

Maybe in an "SC 3" I speculated,where the factions techs have all developed to reach a new level where they are all distinct,i could suggest some new Cybran stuff.

But right now they seem too perfect.No room for new ideas.(to me)

Aeon suffered the most,not to say in universe it could not happen as said above,but their existing XP are part of the problem.Some are completely useless for their intended purpose.

While lacking new unique design types for a new era in vanilla SC 2.

Angel -No idea of it's capability
Walker - GREAT idea.It was about time they made one.Still no idea of it's capability.

Well,i know you guys have not gotten to it yet,but i think its time they made stuff that actually works.
No more "Support" XPs. At least,no more XPs that can't stand in it's own field.
They should inherit some of their Seraphim forefathers raw power.

(Trust me,while Aeon is deadly,but they have weaknesses as well i doubt they can truly overcome compared to the Seraphims who started off very well rounded and powerful.
But just inherit some.

EG. Ythothas sometimes need not be so reserved in attacking compared to the Galactic Colossus.They were,actually slightly economic to use,like the UEF,too.)

They were supposed to be Sacred and Strong.

Which is why i added the personal touch of naming it after a bird to emphasize how fast it is.
Woodpecker is more related to how fast its "beak" gun fires though.

We will have to see what armaments it gets,to determine its name.

You too also scared how powerful the Cybran are getting?
Ive had a Cybran idea or two,but after seeing and comparing how many toys they have, i dont feel inspired.

There's no hurry,everyone can guess roughly where you guys are at now anyway.

Just a few things we still arent clear of.....
Btw,i remember one of the decisions of SC 2 was the faster pace of battles.

This,in return,took out tier level units and reduced the XP build times, and also their significance.

Are you planning to stick back to like it was in FA,where end game options took time,or still go the Spamming of End Game Options in SC 2?

Or a mix?

EG.Average PVP games might see light/medium usage of Minor/Major XPs or Building of small amounts of Artillery or Slight Amounts of Nuking.

Well the team is bit elusive at times,that does need some rather persistent effort to get a response.

But having been in a creative design process before,i understand when they cant respond.Like Overated says,there' no point updating us of anything insignificant.

Sides, i think its better if we understand how the mod works a little better.
I tend to reserve judgement personally,until i get a better idea of their work.I dont want to repeately compliment them needlessly when i have not fully appreciated it would i?

Well Inca,Aztec or Mayan were the basis of the Cuotl,of course their blocky design wont fit.

Btw, i was thinking the Aeon AA gunship should be replaced with something else......Tiny UFOs!(like those from UAW)

The illuminate may have at this point, started reasearch on mass producing that design,based on the Darkenoid.

Mini Darkenoids FTW!
