Altough I actually meant sending scouts in to clear the mines, cleaning them seems rather pointless

Pshaw, every mine needs a good cleaning. They would have named it the Mine Wash if cars weren't given the political upperhand by lobbyists who had financial interests in the petroleum industry.

If we ever get the source, I'm creating a vehicle that goes out and give mines a good scrubbing. After the mine is cleaned, the Savant computer will say "The mine is clean and ready". Now that I think of it more, you should be able to paint the mine with the said vehicle, either with camouflage or with a giant smiley face on it so that people know that the mine is there, and are careful. I bet it will be a very popular vehicle.

I can imagine how increasing those guardposts' hitpoints and allowing them to auto-detonate on enemy contact will slow the enemy down. I like the idea. Savant is right when saying that speed is not the most important thing in Outpost 2.

Admittedly, the range of a starflare is small, but it can be enough to close a bottleneck. And the supernova is good enough.

Just remember, if the GP Starflare's health is to high, and the damage isn't, you can have the problem/benefit of the Starflare going off and not blowing up XD

I'm fairly certian that we would be sure not to make that an oversight in the beta testing.

The question would be: Should it be considered a bug if you can use your mines several times without having to go through replacing the whole building each time (Structure Factory->Building->Storage->ConVec->Transport to it's position->Deployment).

I see that whole proceedure as a part of the game play. I personally find it much more realisic than Starcraft where an SCV basically pulls a 30 ton block of steel out of its ass...

What if you increased the explosive radius of the starflare/supernova turret by 100% while reducing their damage by 25%. This way they could hit targets farther away, but wouldn't be terribly overpowered compared to the mobile version of the weapon?
