Will vehicles run out of fuel or have an unlimited supply?

that would be really cool. Forget to fuel up an xwing...opps.

that wouldn't be all that cool...
The only way they could really do that though is like westwood. (Use up all you missles go back to base)

That would just make the game a pain in the a$$. I don't want 2 waste my time refueling while i could blow up some fortresses

actually I would like it. you build yourself a helipad sort of thing. then when the unit runs low on fuel it automatically returns and fuels up. YOu don't have to do anything, and if the helipads are destroyed the unit runs out of fuel and either lands, or crashes.

It would stop you from placing fighters over the enemy base and just shooting things

I wouldn't like so much... antiair emplacement own aircraft, so
I don't think they could stay for log, without gettin' knockecd outta the sky!

Wonder if the flying units will fly in patterns when not in use or just hover.

09-24-2001, 08:59 PM
No, Gaber already said that the air units will hover like in SC. :D

Limited fuel would just make the game to complex, he he imagine you have almost crushed your enemy with about 50 ATAT and then you run out of fuel. It would be so annoying having to go back to base to refuel, by then they would have rebuilt.

I have to say no fuel because it would be a waste have time and a big pain.

TIE fighters dont use fuel...soooooo die everyone else......hehehehe

If they require fuel for ships then they should require food for units.

Imagine your legion of stormtroopers about to squash the Rebellion when half of them retreat to go get a McRib sandwich.

:barf: :jarjar:
Take that Jar Jar!!!

Hehe, it would be like the TF in the end of TPM when they beat the gungans, only to run out of their power supply when the droid ship explodes..

Droid1: Hands up Noob!

JarJar: No waysa. Mesa gonna kick you in da nutsa!

Droid2: Oh yeah? Hiiiiiiiiyaaaaaa!


JarJar: Owwiessa!! Yousa nosa lika me mesa thinks. Okieday, I give up.

Droid ship explodes and droids fall.

JarJar: HA! OWNED JOO NOOBS! I knew I was more uber! I roxxored joo!

units should not have to refuel, but i think that bombers should have to resupply bombs at the "Starport?" or whatever it is called. Bombs would not cost anything, they would be plentiful.

About Gaber saying the fighters would float. I think thats ok. They all have repulsorlifts, but they should strife when attacking.

Hm, yeah, I can see it now,

(Anakin destroys the command ship and the droid stops)

JAR JAR: These aren't working!

(Topples a droid)

Gungan 2: Generale! Generale Binks!

(TF fighters start to fall out of the sky)

iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii BOOM!

(Stunned silence...)

iiiiiiiiiiiii-i BOOM!

(Running gungans)

iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii WA-BOOM!
