The carapace issue.
« on: August 24, 2019, 08:45:04 AM »
So far I've gotten attack units (or any unit for that matter) to move around the map by telling them "Go here." However that doesn't do any good if the place you want them to go is completely surrounded in walls. (literally) and seeing that the player is also starting at random and can place the walls where they will, it  creates invincibility for them against the units barring any natural disaster or such that create a whole for you. How can you locate an issue like this and tell them to blast a hole in it and get inside? (note if you try to do build a carapace wall in the colony builders shipped with the game they do this.)

Fire Plaque,

Would you just use the 'A' button or attack button to destroy a section of wall and then move your tanks through the hole?

Maybe I'm missing the point though...

Add laser or microwave units to the attack group. Lasers and Microwaves should auto target walls that are in their path. They also get a damage bonus against walls.

I was hoping to get a scorpion to do it. There isn't another AI just ambient life wandering around.

Scorpions should be able to do it too.

Any reason Fire Plague is now a guest?
