Siege tanks and goliaths are two units because of the turret. SCMDraft might not show that?

Yeah, SCMDraft doesn't take into account Tank and Goliath turrets.

Oh, well good to know. Everyone always warns against start locations but I guess you shouldn't have goliaths and tanks ahead of your desired index units either.

True enough. I didn't think to mention it because it's a much more rare occurrence, though that's a good reason to make sure people know about it.

To ensure it's clearly stated:

Unlike Start Locations, which cause all the higher indexes to be 1 lower than expected, Tanks and Goliaths will cause higher indexes to be 1 higher than expected.

I haven't involved any EUDs yet, but I'm going to start looking into that soon. Map progress is good. Somehow I wrote 8000 triggers in 2 weeks. Here are some of the improvements I've made so far...

  • Items are droppable. Other players can then pick them up.
  • Items are stackable. You're able to have multiplicities of the same item.
  • Randomized items. The game scatters random items around the map. Items have unique rarities/values.
  • Game is very well balanced. All game mechanics are mathematically mirrored. (Oblivion was poorly balanced.)
  • Up to 3 characters. Each hero has 6 spells. Unlock spells by levelling. (In Oblivion, you had to buy spells.)
  • Moderate mana. Spells in Skyrim cost less mana than in Oblivion, but you start with a low mana pool.
  • Epic music. Taken from the actual Skyrim soundtrack. (Can be disabled.)
  • Better designed boss fights. More strategy based.
  • 3 game modes. Designed for max replayability.

Maybe a little, but it was pretty barren before as well. At least now the site doesn't break down non-stop.
