"The blight is approaching" makes me rush to finish all the objectives.

"Our people are dying" is humorous.

Perhaps microwave units should be able to hold back the blight by shooting at it. They project a huge pulse of thermal energy. Blight is vulnerable to heat as it cannot cross lava. Even fill up your microbe walls with molten lava/iron.

The blight can move underground. Technically, lava can only delay its spread a little while, but eventually the blight could surface on the other side by spreading underground.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

(And no, I don't count this as necroing, since the topic's relevance is restated with every new member.)

Along with all the other very very broken aspects of that game, I'm sure it was originally designed with a purpose, but as it was rushed into release, it was never implemented, resulting in yet another useless button.

While I do agree with the microbe wall arguments wrt the ineffectiveness and the expense (hence I've only ever built one, and loaded back so it disappeared from the history of the world), what really makes "The Blight is approaching" make my heart skip a beat is that is the only thing Cirrus ever says where she sounds freaked out.  It's all in the tone.

For me, the blight is approaching. If the savant says that, I was being too lax.
Ask me a question and I will answer as best I can.
