Ghosts gets bonus attack range when inside a bunker.



None.

Sep 1 2008, 8:39 pm ClansAreForGays Post #22



doesn't every unit?

And if they did, wouldn't they have the same range as gaurds?




Sep 1 2008, 9:13 pm Echo Post #23



No, only ghosts do.



None.

Sep 1 2008, 9:14 pm Falkoner Post #24



Yes, every unit does, and yes, they get the same range as guardians, it's a very good strategy.

Haven't you seen how firebats can fire way further from inside a bunker? In fact, I'm pretty sure a firebat in a bunker has as much range as an unupgraded hydralisk.



None.

Sep 1 2008, 9:29 pm Echo Post #25



Firebats have the same range. It's just that bunkers are much larger so it gives the illusion of it.

Bunkers do not do add anything offensively to the units inside them, although they do give Marines inside a very slight increase in range. The primary purpose of Bunkers is to soak up damage from attacks. All damage is applied to the Bunkers rather than the units inside them. Only when the Bunker is destroyed will units inside be open to take damage.
It says marines.

Place Ghosts in Bunkers to protect them while they are building up energy and to hide them. A single Ghost (especially with the Ocular Implants upgrade) can spot for Siege Tanks. When being attacked by mechanical units, you also can pop out of the Bunker, cast Lockdown, then get back into the Bunker again. Ghosts should not be used for defense in Bunkers. They have added range, but their attack is largely useless against most units. Marines and Firebats will do a better job.

Also Units in bunkers shoot SLIGHTLY (almost unnoticeable) slower.

I think we should make a "things you probably didn't know" wiki or sticky.

2nd'd. I think thatd' be very nice. And yeah sorry about the faulty hunter killer info... confused myself for some reason. Just tested myself to make sure. If anyone wants me to, I can at least start making a list, formatting it and such, and we can begin filling in the quirks. Just give the word. We should also leave a mark of verified vs unverified, to be sure... someone can go through and check a few now and then or something. If there's nothing interesting about a hero, we should also say so. And yeah sure, list noobish stuff like nuke strike even (for completeness sake), but last.

What are you waiting for? Do it! :P Make a nicely formatted table.

I'm not sure how effective this is at measuring unit ranges, but I put a bunker right below a bunch of stacked buildings, each 1 px apart. Ghosts in the bunker killed 275, hero ghosts killed 243, which leads me to believe these are accurate (might be 1 less) since the difference is 32 px (1 square). Typically a ghost's range would be 224 (32*7). That means the range increased 51 pixels. It's probably 50 pixels.

If the range is measured from the center of the bunker, that would mean that the range increases a bit more. I'll run a test on all four sides to see.

Yep, it's measured from the center, but that's just so it has a good circle. With the distance from the center added in, the range of an upgraded marine (normally 5*32=160) was 233 on the sides and 234 on the top/bottom. A net gain of ~ 75 pixels, which is the same for the ghost shooting upward (275+24-224=75).

It's easier just to say that they gain about 1.5 squares.

Sep 2 2008, 7:41 pm StrikerX22 Post #32



The real question is where other units have to hit the bunker. You measure from there, because that's what matters. Does this change anything?

I will start making a list, but I'm not sure how it should be formatted if in a table. For one, I didn't really want a table. I wasn't looking for every possible stat of the hero, but rather random things that are odd for it. I felt sentences would be better. I will give a list in a format I think is suited. If you wish it changed, I will consider, though anyone can make one in that case.

An interesting fact that no one mentioned is that Warbringer can fire scarabs immediately after exiting a shuttle, while the regular Reaver has a bit of cooldown time.

Perhaps a table of all the units would be neat.

I think it would be useful to have this table with stats that can't be changed.
Dimensions, attack range, walking speed, unit number, cooldown, attacks/s, and anything else I forgot.

Wow, i have never noticed this, but if it is true, it is indeed an interesting fact.

Also, another interesting thing that nobody has mentioned yet (most people probably know it though), that Yggrasill increases underling limit by 30 instead of the 8 of a regular Overlord.

It is, and yggdrasill was mentioned in striker's first post.

I made/filled out some stuff in the wiki.

http://www.staredit.net/wiki/Heroes

I also put in ranks, since that does differ from unit to unit. In one map I've played, a player is given a hero ghost and then other generic ghosts. Well, the "hero" ghost is Samir Duran, and the generic ghosts are Alexei Stukov. Since they have the same graphic and wireframe, it's very difficult to tell them apart, and since Alexei Stukov is rank 22, he will always be selected over Duran, rank 18.

If you're first assumption was wrong, there's a good chance your second one was also wrong, unless firebats normally have the same range as an unupgraded hydralisk.

Other units attack the center, which I guess makes Echo right in how he said the size of the bunker is what does it, although he said that only for ghosts, which is untrue.

If other units had to attack the center, that would mean that units with 0 range couldn't hit the bunker (or other huge buildings). I'll make another test map to see how this works by using flame traps instead of academies.

jjf28 -- forcing players to be quicker means they'll have to multi-task more/up the APMs and use less safe approaches or have gotten the approaches down to an art so they can perform them quickly without much time to think
[2020-3-31. : 5:10 am]
jjf28 -- I'd say best way to increase difficulty is to make the enemy units behave smarter, followed by forcing humans to move quicker (timers, or some mechanism forcing them forward), followed by beefing numbers/stats
[2020-3-31. : 3:39 am]
jjf28 -- a huge part of special forces is game knowledge, mapping out the spawn timings, what triggers different traps, what units combine into others, they're definitely not intended to be friendly games

MTiger156 -- Sadly, I've often seen the exact opposite happen. "Special Forces" maps typically try to kill the entire team within the first 60 seconds... try to stay away from that approach.
