LoP please move the colony to the southwest corner. when we organize this, the first 4 posts should be
 ~combined upload(all of the below)
 ~lops upload(mostly map stuff)
 ~flashys upload(mostly coding)
 ~my upload(mostly technologies)
any arguments?

The missile can be easily fooled (send one lynx close to it and it'll always attack that lynx.) It's just a nuisance.

I've also got some better ideas for the Plymouth base layout, including another VF.

Will you guys eventually let people alter the map as they see fit?

If you can crack the password on Main.zip, you can alter it anytime you want Hidiot.  :P

I'm too lazy to try password guessing. And I somehow doubt main.cpp has the whole source.

Why do you doubt it?

I assumed superior organization. Was it overly optimistic of me?

Er...............................

superior organization?
Do you mean the fact that important peaces of main.cpp are missing and that you can't compile it instandly after cracking the password?

He meant he thought you might have your source spread out over multiple files.

Don't post password protected files please. If it happens again they will be deleted.

when we work on the three Easter eggs we are planning can we password protect those? i mean if the code for them is separate. i don't think that if we give all of the passwords out at the end of the project you would mind... well mabie you would. but it doesn't hurt to ask. just so we can keep at least some surprise in it.


edit:this question was for blackbox. i now think i should have sent it in a pm

If security is an issue for you guys, maybe you shouldn't be putting your code up on a public forum for everyone to download.  Have you considered using IRC?

WebIRC blows.  Go get IRC with NoNameScript from us.

No.  It's on the top of every forum page.  Look for the Quick Links and click Download OPU IRC.

Update. Now you have to collect wreckages. One for EVERY starship piece.

So, uh, is the goal of this little project to make a fun colony game, or just to cram as many random time-wasters into it as possible?

Which objective was highlighted? And were you doing anything to meet the victory condition? There are many possible failure conditions. I'l list them: If light tower is dead before evacuated=failure, if loaded ET is dead=failure, loaded wreckage truck is dead=failure, loaded wreckage truck is empty=failure(This means don't dump the cargo).
And don't forget the normal failure conditions like no people=failure, no CC=failure

Maybe one of your silly loaded cargo trucks/evacuation transports decided to drive through the AI base? Or did anything destroyed a light tower?

It also means don't unload the cargo, so you can never win.

No, when you unload the cargo the failure condition gets disabled

Can confirm a failure condition that's just out of the blue. No units lost, no nothing lost. Was building a Garage and getting ready to build my first spaceport, when the AI launched its n-th EMP Missile and then I failed. Playing it on Hard, to pass the time.

Also, I want access to the source, since some things are getting annoying already.

EDIT: We probably nailed this one, was a problem on my part.

more info. i had lost most of my scorpions(4 left) and half of my lynx(9 left) this was the same force i had used to guard the cargo and evacs before my attack on Plymouth. they had losts lynx esgs(2), emps(2), microwaves(3), rpgs(1), and a cargo truck(1). the cargo truck died last before the game failed.
the exact direction i came at them from was off center just like the little text charts below(ignore the dots)
the "v"'s show the direction of attack
the "X"'s show the killed off units of mine
[color=1ffff]
..O-------them
