Epic class vehicles







Veteran Upgrades to base defenses

Base defenses may now be promoted to veteran once they defeat a certain cost of enemies. I was concerned about the possible balance issues caused by this, so their over-effectiveness will not be as great as when a unit becomes promoted. They receive a slight visual upgrade when promoted and can now self-repair, though at a slower rate than the manual repair structure.










Multiplayer / Skirmish

There have been some major changes to custom matches and fighting against AI with the addition of multiple factory bonus options, tree targeting, and a more balanced AI with the option of Hardcore Mode. The Harcore AI option, when selected, will test the player with a challenging AI that will attack you with greater force and speed than ever before, challenge at your own risk.





Other Features:

There are many other changes, such as new laser effects, rebalanced units, new skirmish maps, such as the remaking of the classic Casey's Canyon, and EMP effects, now damage targets that are affected. All these new changes will ensure an enjoyable experience for both new and veteran players!







Thank you for showing interest in this project, and I hope you enjoy the new features in this update. As always, I have many ideas for future updates! Now may the Clash of the Titans begin!

2.91 has been released. However, the changes were not disclosed in detail. The best thing I could catch is this (from its Discord Channel):

After playing a few matches, I found the Epic units to be strong units, but not overpowering. I just uploaded a small update in which, after more testing, I gave both the Colossus and Cerberus a considerable boost to damage and hit points, making them terrifying on the battlefield. The colossus also got a rate of turn boost, the harvester voice is fixed!
