why are you asking it exactly?

dunno. might be fun. if you can invent epochs and upgrades while being transported, why not produce units? might be nice, imagine you put one mobile HQ into zeppelin, by the time he is at his destination he has 9 workers to accompany him, gathering resources.
or a mobile brachio camp assisted by archers?
just an idea

I recommend a walking breeding place, transporting eggs and creating dinosaurs or other animal units.

Yes but more like a mobile nest or the ankylo catapults. Maybe they can spawn units or they can produce them, that's still for discussion. But the idea is basically an egg transporting vehicle or animal, on which the eggs can breed and are like a plague cart

Either very morbid like this:

Or horrific like this:

Or this:

but with dinosaur eggs and several abilities to use them

Hallo falls ich hier falsch bin dann sagt es mir bitte, aber ich habe eine Frage bezüglich dem Mirage Mod.

Kann man irgendetwas dagegen machen das er nicht alle 5-10 minute oder sogar kürzer abstürtzt?

Ich sammle nämlich gerade Paraworld Spiele um mit Kumpels mindestens zu 4rt spielen zu können. Und ich weiss jetzt schon das wenn ich mit ihnen zock und das so oft abstürtzt die gleich keinen bock mehr haben werden.

Und ich möcht gern mit ihnen den Mirage Mod zocken. Mehr als nur 52 Einheiten bauen, unendlich Resourcen, mehrere Titanen, Helden und anderen Einheiten zum einsatz bringen und andere Features das find ich geil.

Das Standard Model is dagegen ja nix.^^

Also wie gesagt falls einer Rat weiss würde ich mich freuen. Hab schon probiert den Cache zu löschen bringt aber auch nix. Hab noch Windows XP weiss garnicht wies bei 7 oder 8 funtioniert.

status report: working on the new hotkey system and new abilities for heroes (+2 abilities atm...), and because of this i would like to know your oppinion about Miyagi (pirate captain)

currently he has the "Walking Bomb" ability (on level 3)
if you know this ability, what is your oppinion? is it good or lame?

just asking, because i tested some new abilities for him, like "Plunder" [resource stealing from enemy], "Hostage" [take control over enemy infantry, e.g. workers...] and "Scorch" [sets enemy bases on fire], and because all of them are pretty good, maybe i would replace his current t3 ability with one of them

its not that easy to give all heroes 4 abilities ^^
btw, i just had an idea for a new ability (not necessarily for a hero):
treasure theft - the unit (e.g. ninja) can take away treasure from targeted unit

what do you think about it?

the 200 unit limit (or better said supply capacity) is a switchable option ;D
you can enable it before any new game

because some players had issues with camera zooming (in tutorial mission, like chipmunk) i made the camera zooming switchable, so that in options menu anyone can set the default zooming-mod for mousewheel-usage (if its either the new or old one, and then using together with Ctrl (Strg for germans) will be the other)

the only question remains, which should be the default by first (before a player could change it in the new version): the new or old zooming

because many players don't even read the readme file, they won't know that it can be changed, or they will think that the extended zooming is removed

please tell me your opinion about this matter

the traditional wy of zooming should standard for the campaign maps, especially the map that requires it.

once i've almost finished the description for the new hero abilities, i had to realize, that a couple of them were very unrealistic and/or didn't fit the corresponding hero
here is a new list of the hero abilities (or upgrade) (the original ability of some heroes will be replaced/modified/rearranged; they are in ascending order - lvl3->4->5...):

Babbit: Minigun, Jetpack, Mobile suit (its a local upgrade like at brachios)
Bela: Sniper shot, Shattering shot, Cluster arrows
Cole: Shotgun, Intimidate, Unbreakable will
Warden: One with nature, Domestication, Call of the Wild
Arch Druid: Mend, World of Trees, Eruption
Larry: Brotherhood, Detonate, Ceasefire
Leighton: Vanish, Demotion, Execution
Ada: Neurotoxic dart, Anesthetic dart, Head shot
Governor: Whirling blade, Duel, Deafening roar
Kleemann: Sacrifice, Locust swarm, Graveyard
Miyagi: Plunder, Blockage, Bribe
Stina: Hypnosis, Enrage, Lethal wound
Tarna: Repulsion aura, Shallow grave, Seismic strike
Tesla: Pinning shot, Vehicle destruction, Teleport

its still possible that there will be some changes though

if you have any questions, ideas or suggestions, please feel free to post it ;D

Call of the Wild sounds interesting. Will it free an animal unit of the enemy?

that is actually a pretty cool idea =D

the original idea was much 'sloppier', it would have called Warden's allo from missi 10 (seas jungle temple)

what do you think, how should it work if the enemy animal gets be freed? like rampaging for x time, and attacking its owner?

The spell would affect animals and conductor/animal combos.

I would guess Call of the Wild would work like this:
Would free level 5 animal for some time, or if it has no conductor free it completely
Would free level 4 animal for twice the time, or if it has no conductor free it completely
Would free level 3 animal for three time the time, or if it has no conductor free it completely
Would free level 1 animal and level 2 completely, or if it has no conductor free it completely

The animal would be under control of Gaia, it would act like an aggressive animal if elvel 5 or 4, neutral otherwise.

After being freed, the animal woudl be invulnerable for some time so that missiles don't do damage. After that it would act like a free animal, i.e. counterattak if hit or attacked. Ah yes and after being freed, it would lose being enenmy target to others.

Feel free to use only some ideas.
