Something I've noticed in Machines.
« on: September 12, 2007, 10:35:54 am »
The number of the eyes depends on the tech level of that particular unit, and the eyes denote wether the unit is military, constuction or a techie. Military units' eyes look angry/or concentrating (the way I look when the enemy is sending templars at me when my only defence force are a few reapers), builders have "staring" eyes, and the techies look like dad when he forgot to drink his mug of coffee.
Were it so easy. -The Arbiter, Halo 3.
Now is the time, waste no more time. Though the Heavens fall, if they wish war. We are prepared. We are prepared to conquer, to claim. So begins, the final event. With forces united, prepare for war.

It is represented in their voices, too. The techs have wimpy, submissive voices, the builders are laid back, and the combat units are aggressive and loud.

And I've also noticed that in other RTS games, like RA2, or Generals.

yes i get that too. sometimes the machines stop while walking for no reason, i have to end up clicking again to make them move. or in the case of the lab tech, they're just retarded and take ages to turn and move so i end up having to go into the labs in first person POV. im guessing its just the way the game is, theres always some flaws

It takes about 2 seconds to calculate the path in Machines, so pause between clicks :)

and techs are retarded, don't create them :P High-tech ftw

sometimes, my Titan MEKs get stuck in a Nuke, or, in other words, they are building themself into it.

some of those Transporters are so dumb.... even after I've sent them to a Mine 5 times, they still don't move a bit.


[EDIT]
Transporters are bigger retards than Techs. especially the Bull Transporter

Have you checked out any of my mods?

Double posting = bad.

Well, the Goliath is a piece of ****, and I think the Commanders are like that because they are the first unit you get in the campaign (or was it a Commandant? Hmm...).

Wraith Reapers, Knights, Templars Commanders, Commandants, Assassin Warlords and Bee Bombers are probably my fav units. :wink:
