    Yessss.

    Still think the particles for fire should change. I think something more similar to the nanolathe particles would look epic.

    On a related note - how close are we to getting trees that will react to the battle, IE, fall down when run over and shot at, etc. ?

    So do the trees disappear once they are burnt down? I think watching a planet slowly get scorched by war would be really cool.

    So happy that's not it and there'll be flammable trees.

    Oshi! Nano and Madsci I think were discussing this with me. I thought, surely that is probably not a thing that will happen.

    You can burn the forests to clear for bases! Whoo!

    They also discussed reclaiming trees for energy. Will fabbers also do that?

    What I'd love, is knowing your enemy is sending bots or an army through a forest, and shooting the forest to erupt flames to burn through it, and cook the army. I'd figure it would do miniscule damage, but tenderizing an enemy couldn't hurt when you end up in combat against them later, it can only help.

    If it's anything like TA they will burnt dead trees that, if reclaimable, are worth slightly less energy than unburnt tress.

    Notice also how the trees emit light! The light-instancing improvements from varrak/ben are lookin' good!
