Enemy Unit Locations Known Without Radar: Bot Info: Full

Postby Ace Rimmer » Fri Feb 12, 2010 5:53 pm

Maybe I missed this somewhere, but is the Bot supposed to know exactly where a different Team ID has placed ground units even though those units are not and have not been made visible by Radar?

I was fooling around with silo targeting trying to get my Bot to target ground units, then cities, and couldn't figure out why it was pointing to seemingly unpopulated areas. Switched to de-bug mode and verified it was targeting Silos, AirBases, and RadarStations that hadn't been revealed by radar.

Bot vs Bot, this might be fine, but Bot vs human would be horrendous (for the human). I'm guessing it works the same for fleet units.

The extent of Radar coverage (main fleet, including carriers never move):

I suppose you have the option to reveal all units turned off in the API?

>_>

<_<

What?

Ahem, I suppose that never changing that option will lead to forgetting about it. :P

Good call. How is it turned off? Or is it a command-line option when defcon.exe is launched?
