    Don't forget to uninstall the Bot Attack Fix mod if you have it.

    Shellers no longer move into range of targets (may not be a new bug).

    Hey, an update. Awesome.
    Not so awesome that both the texture streaming bug (seeing lowres textures despite having enough VRAM to buffer all of them) and the highres interface bug (interface gets corrupted at something more than WQHD in fullscreen or windowed) still persist...

    Did you give them vision?

    Shellers only see 38% of their range:
    Also these changes do not apply to Shellers which have a brake value to match their acceleration.

    When idling with vision they stop just beyond range.

    Yeah I figured after posting. :cool:

    some feedback
    ment t1 repairbot spaces out on following groups and/ or building minefields either moving incredibly slowy and wobling or staying around in an unfinished minefield and wobling ..
    grenadiers still seem to keep going into enemy fire despite have vision on target on attackmove ..

    another problem i have is that hornets fire too soon when given a specific target to attack,
    attacking units and buildings on the way making sniping difficult ..

    Combat fabbers stuck especially in minefields is nothing new. It's on my list to look at and might need a tweak of the spacing. Try the previous build and you'll see.

    I'm not seeing anything unexpected with grenadiers or hornets with attack move. A replay with timing helps.

    Some units are blind like shellers / bluehawks with vision lower than their range. Other units have vision greater than their range and will need to move closer to be within weapons range to fire. A lot also depends on the unit mix and grouping.

    the problem with hornets was not on A-move but on a snipeattempt giving a atackorder on a commander with rightclick, they fired before reaching the actual targed and as such have their actual launchtiming messed up

    grenadiers at the very least had radarassistance and were on their own afaik

    sry for not providing a replay, for some reason i can´t rewatch my replay after going back to lobby were it wasn´t listed in "my games only" or "all recent games"
    is there something with replay if you put your game as private or is there a optionsetting i need to check?
