I would like to help you with the graphics. At least draw some units and objects. I am not an artist or a designer, but among my childhood friends there are those with whom we played the laser squad, and other turn-based strategies. And here are some of them doing the graphics. They are already serious people and do not play games. But they have the resources to help, and I?m sure they will agree.
2 Xeno: My attack fizzled out at all<br /><br />But now I have a bright moment too :-)<br /><br />'Pizdetz kotyonku' - good phrase in russian to describe moon landscape at comrade Petermock base
Lol.....its already over. Not a good game for a defender then. Wont ever be playing this one again. Might get further in league with points from attacking tho . Panicked and dropping weapons every turn....pointless
Thanks. Better graphics would be good, but I'm no artist. I've been spending most time on SF porting the code to LibGDX, so I can use the same code for Android, PC and even iOS. Once this is done, my next big feature will be a better AI to play against, but this is a long way away yet.
On this day 10 years ago, a player called Kiba was the first player to join Stellar Forces. No idea what he's doing now, but thanks to them and the other 17,000 players, Stellar Forces has been going for 10 years with over 48,000 games played. Lots of thanks to everyone who's played, and also thanks the Patrons Henry's Cat, Cpt Fishmonger, Rabid and Rost310 (and all previous patrons) for keeping it going!
Steve, is says 210 in the mission file. I was only given 155. I will play with it but please change it. I would have reduced my number. Lets see how L50's work. From distance they don't drop in range. I've got a couple of heavy lasers too.
Thanks, I'm on a 10 winning streak at the moment! Yeah I think you have to get very lucky with a fire extinguisher. Only time I tend to buy them occasionally is when I use incendiary grenades myself. I must have killed quite a few in that fire as I can't account for half of your losses.
Well played. What a complete waste Fire Extinguishers are. Unless the unit holding them happens to be right next to the flames at the moment it explodes, by the time they've got to the fire, everyone else is dead.
I think it may have been a week when I first started?! At least 5 days. I know I and some others,certainly Pete also, asked for it come down to 3. I think that is the right balance myself. One day would be too quick.
Some good ideas there. However, I'm against adding features which can only be counteracted by luck, like landmines, or items which can only be counteracted by the "luck" of happening to be carrying a gas mask/landmine detector.
Wow, 4 shots from a MK1 rifle from fairly close rang, all hit and they only damage your unit a total of 9 HPs! Thought you must have Super Heavy armour but no just heavy. Then my other unit nearby fired twice and the pillock missed both. Gulp!
Las rifles are lovely guns for accurate hits but I opt for blasters as they destroy body armour and make holes in walls. A mixed group of sniper rifles and AP100 units gives multiple accurately ained shots with guaranteed back up destruction with grenades.
@steve. Could you please look at my current game. Battle royal. Four squares in front of me is rost1 I took four shots at him and missed. Please explain how this is possible? I cant understand the percentage of accuracy as it's totally fubar. Guarantee he shoots and kills me first shot now. Really frustrating. Couldn't we scrap the current soldier selection and get some who arent mentally deficient and can shoot straight?
Snap shots from range is a real gamble even from close range often, usually less than 50% chance. I don't like trusting opp fire myself, but quite often you have to put it in the lap of the Gods. But if you are firing first, you should almost always fire an aimed shot. 85% with sniper rifles.
Just find it frustrating.... almost too scared to get into a fire fight as shooting first means nothing. Current game I'm running out of ammo with sniper rifles and have hit nothing .... gonna give this game a miss for a bit and safe shooting my phone in real life LOL
