Corpses - Zombie Survival
This patch contains improvements for performance, AI and possession.
Possession now allows the player to directly attack and use abilities while controlling a creature. Use left mouse click to use the basic attack, 1 or 2 for special abilities (when present) and right click to dig with drones. NOTE: due to re-publishing limitations of the Rock the Cabinet contest, the map released on NA servers has the "attack while using possession" feature disabled. Until the contest is over, a second version of the map has been published with a different name.
To encourage map exploration I added one of the first upcoming changes: boosts.
Boosts are small items, scattered around the map, that can be activated for special bonuses. At these moments there are in game and more will be added in the future:
- Increase level of all your creatures by 1
- Heal all your creatures
- Temporarily increase efficiency for all your creatures
- Temporarily increase happinessfor all your creatures
- Spawn 4 additional drones
- Increase vespene gas
- Increase minerals
- Bonus global research (500 to each research tree)
- Bonus for a single research tree (1000)
Last but not least, voice alerts made by Yushatak were added in game!
o First waves starting time slightly increased in normal and easy maps
o Optimized how dig selection works, that should improve performance in multiplayer game
o Drones dig and conquer AI greatly improved
o Drones now run away in fear when encountering enemies
o Creatures won't die anymore from hunger, however happiness of extremely hungry or tired creatures will decrease faster
o Modified creatures drop stun duration depending on creature type, agile creatures will be stunned for less time compared to clumsy ones
o Added boost items in all maps
o Improved alert system with new icons and voice messages
o Possession greatly improved and attacks during possession are now enabled (use left mouse for basic attack, right mouse for digging with drones and 1-2 for special abilities)
o Fixed a bug that could cause a stop in the tutorial after building a level 2 spore cannon
o Drones won't attack anymore while carrying an unconscious creature
o Fixed defeat screen UI
