intuitive use of the "burrow" trait from tiberian sun. #16706
I have a request regarding a tiberian sun mechanic used in Shattered paradise. the "underground travelling" or "burrow"
Right now the Devil Tongue "DT" (flame tank traveling underground), travels from A to B directly underground on simple move command. It prevents the DT to respond correctly to click-related order without witnessing the tank going and exiting the ground sometime in a chaotic fashion.
I'm aware the behaviour depends on values that can be adjusted in the mod but the players can't be aware of those parameters without a huge experience of using the feature. Which is kinda the opposite of intuitive.
I was wondering if the underground travelling could be handled the same way as the blink of chrono tank on a modifier (could even be the same : "alt").
With that change, the underground behaviour would be only triggered by the player's will and feels controllable. Second advantage; the DT would respond to every existing order like a normal vehicle. Third advantage you could yourself with the incoming queuing system controlling perfectly the portion of the journey you want underground and out of the ground.
