    Patch 1.6.0004 Impressions

    Excited! Specifically curious about the further walrus nav improvements.

    Cancelling program?

    Played a few hours with it- it's bloody awesome. Can't imagine playing without it now.

    Cancelling program?

    Aha! Thanks! It's not in the key bind options yet, nor in the patch notes- is this a beta patch addition?
  4. Hi all, Despite the fact I'm definitely still enjoying blowing stuff up, I've got a question- is there any way to CANCEL an order/program? Hitting E pauses the command, but I'd like to simply clear the unit's memory with a single button press. The only way I know, is to give the unit a move order very close to the front of the unit. Surely there must be an easier way to do so.
  5. Oh. I thought you were handing out cookies. seriously though- since the pathfinding was tweaked, I find myself rather happy with the game overall. If you manage to get it running, stick to strategy mode. My reason for occasionally checking these forums are helping others with issues I can help with, and the hope of further AI tweaks, as the pathfinding still isn't perfect.

    Update 360

    I believe it is because of the Xbox platform requiring a VERY large amount of money to be paid, PER patch. It wouldn't be financially viable to release another patch, I reckon. Steam probably has a similar cost but is likely to be lower. Just guessing though.

    Stuck in Reactor Room

    If I remember correctly, once you teleport back to the room, you start up that last reactor, and then have to walk over to a monitor somewhere to start the downloading process of the data onto some sort of data storage. The big rods sticking out of the wall should then rotate and spit out the item you need. the doors should open then. If not- reload a savegame from before you entered the first person part. The single manta picking off the defences before heading in is definitely a valid way of doing it. Taking down a carrier is, depending on who you're talking to, either too easy or too hard. Sounds like you have the best experience :D If you do think it's too hard- it just takes a bit of practice. The trick is to use your bow cannon to take out his engines and weapons, while protecting your own bow cannon. As for the torpedo- you hang it under a manta like a bomb. Then, you aim the nose of the manta at the enemy carrier, and fire the torpedo. The torpedo will drop in the water and just sits there for... what, 5 seconds? to arm itself. Then, it'll speed off forwards. So if the enemy carrier is moving, it's a bit tricky. Best used from behind or when he's not moving. 2 of those will sink it, by the way. Hope that's of some help.

    My experience so far

    Scrapser, it is generally wise to prepare for imminent attack. The two times I played through the campaign, I usually left the islands as they were, until you know the carrier is coming. By then you should have enough resources to work with and you can easily bunker up your island chain. When they're defended properly, often the enemy carrier simply fails taking the island he's attacking, or takes long enough for you to take 3-5.

    The future of CCGM

    Interesting, and agreeing completely. Allow me to add an example of a perfectly operational and as far as I know, quite profitable PC-only platform: DCS (Digital Combat Simulator), a simulator that runs on a broad range of computer systems. The DCS system is free to download and play, and gives you access to a huge battle area, and control over one airplane. You can buy additional packs that plug into the DCS program, and add additional planes and helicopters to fly, but there's also packs that turn the whole thing into an RTS where you take control over the battlefield ground units, or even take direct control over a tank and turn the thing into a tank sim. Scrapser, if you want to see something that is NOT dumbed down, have a look at their DCS- A-10C Warthog pack. It's as close a non-pilot can get to flying the real deal. it IS possible. It IS profitable. (they're on their, what, 8th pack now) One just needs to get the head right. Picking the right kind of product helps, but more importantly, not let it get screwed up by funny business. (IE. war Z, Diablo 3) Anyway, thought i'd throw that in there as example of how it can be.

    Not much to AI in latest patch?

    Thanks for the clarification Johny!

    Not much to AI in latest patch?

    I was just having a conversation today about similar worries Jureidinim. And then, BAM! Another patch update! Good timing I'd say, hah. However- the one thing I'd really like to see a fix for isn't in there, and the mention of this being the last update before the official release of the patch makes me fear it won't be in there at all.... the walrus AI pathfinding. I'd really think that's priority.

    So what happens now?

    Completely agreeing with Tortuosit. Yes, that was out loud. I've been around here from the start, assisting where I could, and I'm saddened by... well, I cannot think of any way to put it without being penalised for it. Having said that- I do strongly stress, that I'm still fully behind the product. All it needs, is the patch that, as I'm assuming, the devs are still working very hard on. They've had a tinker with the map nav grid, now they were looking into, if I'm not mistaking, the walrus nav AI acting up when another walrus is in it's path. (I.E. on follow, or simply moving to thesame spot as others) Once that has been improved, the biggest issues will be delt with and everyone will be happy to pick up Carrier Command. Releasing the beta patch with the nav grid fix was a great step, now we're all getting curious about the next one. Any word on progress of the patch from the devs? As I mentioned in earlier posts- loving any tech details on what's being worked on, plus, it'll let us all know that there is in fact still hard work going on behind the scenes :D

    Carrier Command is Excellent

    Agreed. Pathfinding AI fix will put this thing to the top of my favourites list.
  14. Dreadnought808

    So what happens now?

    I suspect most people that used to post here are simply waiting for the patch, I myself included :D The recent beta patch, if it'd work for you, fixed many of the pathfinding problems that are maprelated. I'm hoping the next step in the patch development will be the fixing of the AI, more precisely the navigation getting confused when another walrus is near the the planned path. Once that is sorted, (and the few remaining maprelated issues) most navigation will work flawlessly.

    Limited Tech Strategy mode option

    Aye, a tech tree progression option for strategy mode seems to be a popular request. However, considering the negative feedback on the first person shooter parts, this should also be a choice option. (however I do believe that'd include having to create the actual first person missions too, so I doubt it'll be good use of resources) Strategy mode options Enable tech tree progression (hack enemy labs) yes/no Enable first person missions (turns some hack tasks into first person missions) yes/no
