There will of course be additional changes has testing continues.
One last thing, I have new effects for the Badger bombers carpet bombs, but massive slow down occurs if it is used on a tiberium field (the fuller the field, the worse the slow down), other than tiberium there are no other problems.

Should the effect stay or go?
