It doesn't make a big explosion if it gets destroyed. I detonated it in this video. If it gets detected, you wasted your money, because he won't survive the attack. Depends on the situation and the enemy. If you set up Sentry Droids in front of your base and have some units around to defend, Efreet has no chance of exploding in its full power.

There is no exact date. Most probably at one of the last months of this year. But we don't promise anything yet.

I will also like to suggest that you make better "Random System", because when you play e.g 3v3 there are up to 90% chance that two players will have the same nation (China Tank for exp.) that makes game boring...
You should put Random System like in Age of Empires, where you have 8 nations and 8 players max. so every player play with different one.
I respect what you guys are doing, and support it strongly!
Looking Forward to Contra008!

I don't think that such thing can be done if it's involved with the game engine. It's hard-coded.

I have just noticed that problem and suggested it should be solved if possible, if not we will manage to play somehow :)

Contra has different stealth detection. Patriots, Gatling Cannons, Tunnels, etc. don't detect stealth units anymore. You have to use Radar Vans, Sentry Droids and Listening Outposts most of the time. Mines can be disarmed by mine clearers. Workers and Dozers don't clear mines anymore. Also, there are also some special units, which detect stealth aircraft. These changes have effect to the gameplay.

I've gotta say, if that was my Efreet in the enemy base, I probably would've gone for the Airfield and the four Auroras.

Still, awesome explosion :D

Why don't you make a super unit which deploys free suicide units when deployed instead of a suicide unit itself?
It needs to rebuild many times unlike other super units.

We already have a similar "unit" - The Mad Mob. Same as the Angry Mob, but not with the usual rocks and molotovs. They run into the enemy and explode. They regain lost people like the normal Angry Mob.

This video was from an alpha version of Contra. Alpha and Beta versions contain unfinished stuff, things in progress and placeholders. It's normal.
