    Ant4Lyf Version 3.3 Release:

    The Official Article


    If you want to play a mod based on screenshots, they're down below. :D

    The cousin of Dox4Lyf has arrived! This time you can battle with tanks!!!

    This mod includes new units, all of which are based around the Ant (Or Bolo, if you prefer)

    Some of these include:
    • Explosive T1 tanks: Use the Explosive ants to decimate structure with ease or take out tight groups of units without getting rekt. They are super fast but have very low vision range.
    • Tank Destroyer: The Hammer Head tank destroyer is a powerful long range sniper tank that is able to incinerate any type of tank with ease. They deal no AOE, but put out 1000 damage onto their target. It's like the evil, parallel universe sheller.
    • Giant Ant: This version of the t1 tank can be shown in the "pretty CPlosion" screenshot down below. They are heavily armored and deal lots of damage. They crush anything that tries to roll under it.
    • Ant sheller: This version of the ant fires it's own species at a cost of metal per second to keep it balanced, like boom bots wars' sheller. It deals medium damage and high AoE.
    • Borv: Taken directly out of Dox4Lyf, this vehicle acts like a shield and explodes when it gets close to anything. It is an effective counter to the explosive ants with it's flamethrower, and will easily shield any kind of ammo coming towards it.
    • Experimental Uber Leveler: This buffed up, gorilla-like version of the ant deals insane DPS with it's main cannons and even more with it's side mounted coaxial machine guns. It is the unit meant to end games, but be careful because it's very expensive. It explodes in a mini nuke when it dies.
    Known Bugs / issues:
    • Giant leveler side mounted guns do not rotate correctly
    Extra Strategic Icons Now Available:

    Ant4Lyf is meant to be a fun game-mode and is not intended for anything serious, because I'm trying to get balance worked out.

    Leave some suggestions here if you want to help develop the mod. I will probably need someone to help with the AI because it's not very smart with this mod, even after tweaking it myself.

    Thanks @cola_colin for the RescalePA program, @stuart98 for the Awesome Projectile support, and @Alpha2546 for the awesome improved explosions.

    It's not from boom bot wars, it has a flamethrower.

    Random, but can you give me the link for the scale PA mod, and maybe a run down of how to use it?

    Danke. :3

    Nope it still has them but there's a bug with the muzzle rotation.

    The side facing machine gun muzzle flashes turn with the top half of the tank, but they're attached to the bottom half.

    What I would like to see is a commander mod that makes the commander larger.

    Update 1/1/2015 (Happy New Year):
    • Released a strategic icon client mod for new units
    • Added build bar icons for nukes
    • Fixed experimental leveler coaxial and uber cannon yaw rate. This fixes the "Shooting from nothing" bug. They will now shoot when the actual barrel reaches the target.
    *added new screenshot*

    It's kinda hard to make a radioactive nuke icon without using the radioactive symbol ;)

    I was rather referring ot he origin of the symbol. It looks nearly identical to the one I made for RCBM.

    That's true, I'll change it to something different/ not as similar. It's hard to use the radioactive symbol and make it look different than others.

    - NO need to do that, I don't mind it. I was just stating that I recognised it ;) Feel free to use it for whatever.
