    Current Version: 3.8 (Electric shotgun added)

    The Official Article


    What does it actually do, m8?

    This mod aims to create a similar scenario to @burntcustard 's Boom Bot Wars mod, but dox. Giant dox can be built from the advanced vehicle factory. Everything is affected by dox in someway.

    Current features:
    • Dox are the only units build-able from the bot factory
    • Shellers shoot dox and cause a lot of AOE
    • Giant dox have a rapid fire laser and 1000 HP. They are roughly the size of a commander and can handle a group of at least 50 dox without dying, thanks to it's minor AOE damage
    • Normal dox are 33% faster, ultimately reducing boredom when the lag hits.
    • A vanguard protects units like a shield, it functions like a normal vanguard, except with an explode-on-attack mechanism
    • T1 orbital radar is fast and cheap, but the orbital factory is expensive
    • Holkins shoot giant dox, and cost far less metal to build. They no longer cost 20k power to run
    • Two nukes; snipe your enemy with a low cost missile or decimate their base with a high cost Doxstroyer missile.
    • Land mines are useful now
    • Experimental T3 dox to end stalemates
    • And much more obviously
    Custom commander weapons

    Each custom commander created by backers will have and improved main weapon. This is not finished, the ones present in the current version are from Boom Bot Wars. The current commander weapons are created only by Burntcustard.

    Things I will be working on:
    • Giant dox stomping mechanism
    • Custom weapons for the custom commanders. Buying commanders helps Uber and you:p
    • Some other epic stuff soon
    Known Bugs/issues (will be updated accordingly):
    • Hotkeys are reset for some units
    • The holkins shoots too far when not designated a target
    • Dox ROF is too high
    • Dox shoot over structures
    • AI dither units and don't commit to destroying factories (This is a problem with the AI that can only be fixed by devs)

    Yep, but it's going to be changed since it cause major lag and does not look as intended.

    Also: there will be a major update to this mod as soon as tomorrow.

    New screenshots added to OP

    My plan is to have most weapon ammo have the dox model as the projectile. The ammo for mobile units except the ones for shellers will be kept as lasers and stuff xD

    That could actually be a bug with PA since I've had that happen to me before, but with a different commander. Can you reproduce it without any other mods enabled?

    Well it looks like that's a new commander, so i'm going to have to update the mod. Thanks

    AI doesn't retaliate, it just sits there defending its base

    Do they keep their dox moving in a weird spiral that never moves locations?

    Do they keep the dox inside the base?

    I think I know what you mean.

    EDIT: AI seems really hard to perfect. :mad:
