Didn't think we'd be back so soon would you?
With our updates being rather far and in between we figured we'd let you all enjoy 2 updates this week.
So without further ado, enjoy our second update of this week!
This structure, available after a War Factory or Airfield has been constructed, serves as a command and support center for unmanned ground and air vehicles. Staffed by technicians and other support crew, the facility allows for high-level maintenance and tech support for all drones. The communications equipment at the center is capable of broadcasting general orders to the decision-making software of unmanned combat vehicles, allowing them to shift to and from defensive and offensive postures should the situation call for it. A number of drone related upgrades have also been relocated to this facility. In summary, this structure is a necessity for any American field commander wishing to make full use of their drone arsenal.
And once again, some cool screenshots to show you some of the new stuff:
Here is a screenshot of the new Drone Control Center in-game which presently has 3 unique Drone Protocols.
Similar to the Strategy Center Battle Plans, you can always activate one of these at any given time. However, unlike the Strategy Center, these Protocols only confer special effects to drone units, and do not affect the Drone Control Center itself. Also, like the Strategy Center, air units will not be affected by these protocols; Hunter Killers and WASP Hive Drones will not receive any bonuses from these protocols. They along with all drones will receive auto-repairs from the Drone Center however, which has been added to this building and removed from the Advanced Drone Warfare upgrade.
In future versions of ROTR, the Drone Assembly Plant will be removed and drones are instead built from the War Factory via a simple production switch.
This way you can set your War Factory to either produce drones or standard vehicles for ease of operation.
And a friendly reminder that this upcoming Sunday, we will be doing another official live stream of the internal beta, which we haven't done since April earlier this year.
The stream will as usually be hosted by Hecthor Doomhammer on his channel: Twitch.tv
