    Has anybody ever noticed that all buildings could need a shiny building animation that looks like transformers or something?


    Since buildings in empires are made out of intelligent materials that kind of use some crazy nano-technique to build up

    when a guy with a tricorder-like handheld presses the same buttons over and over,

    There should be any kind of animation on that building!


    Just imagine how awesome it would be,

    if the commander wouldn't drop a huge complete building,

    but some sort of huge box instead, which then turns into a building.


    I do want!


    discuss.
    same as other thread ~brutos

    it would be cool to have a construction animation like starcraft 1. lol you know what? fuck that.. how about we put a warp portal and theres a glowing ball of light.. then the building will teleport to that location.. additional pylons needed

    when the commander wnats to drop a building,

    there should be a huge building sized sunray/spot shining down from the sky.

    Then the building shall materialize from a particle effect that has the contour of the building.

    As long as its unbuild, it has to look unbuilt. Maybe have its textures darkened.

    When people start building it up, it changes color from the bottom to the top.

    So, when a NF rax is halfway build up, its lower half is in normal color and its upper half is darkened.


    there's a fucking scrap merchant driving slowly down my road, shouting "SCRAP IRON! SCRAP IRON! THE SCRAP MERCHANT IS HERE!!! OLD OVENS! BRASS and ZINC! SCRAP IRON!"

    Can someone plz shoot him?

    Honestly speaking, this would be a dicktonne of work, for very little gain. It would require a fair amount of extra modelling, as well as the animation, which we don't have right now.
