Disregarding the soul issue, don't burning multiwinians stop obeying orders?

Disregarding the orders issue, do burning darwinians really set other darwinians alight?


Yes.

You know the map Leap of Faith?

Imagine a single burning guy at the landing zone of one of the islands.

Now imagine a giant stream of multiwinians heading towards that landing zone.

So yes, they do. I can say definitely.

I had the same situation. Closest island to my left had my burning Multiwinians on it in varying quantities for the entire game.

I care for the winians! Still I had to sacrifice a few for the benefit of the whole, imagine what it would be like when my green army had to live under the communistic tyranny of the dreaded red winians who would have won if not for my kamikaze tactics?

And ya, they listen while on fire how elss would hot feet work?
And they also set others alight.

Just to dispell the mass halucination you all seem to be suffering from here, burning Multiwinians do NOT set other Multiwinians on fire. If they did, a single burning Multiwininan from a grenade explosion would be enough to wipe out an entire army.

Who's up for an option (disabled by default) to make it work then?

But if they don't, you DO have no soul, Phevnil!!!!

Odd cause some how after I light my winians on fire and had them run into the blue army it sudenly burst into flame and was completely gone in a minute..... I'll just say further study is required (I'm going to do exactly what I did the first time I think one of the other computers may have napalmed or something but that dosen't explain the whole army catching fire).

I don't think investigation is going to help when the guy who wrote the code just told you they don't. ;)

Sometimes, code just sort of - develops its own sense of self.

Slips evolve into bugs, bugs evolve into features.

Soon you won't know what is intended behaviour and what is kernel crash.

try putting a group of DGs outside the laser fence on third kind, that'll prove the point :P

You just made me think of I, Robot (the movie and the book although the book was better). And ya I know that he is part of the staff who made the game and when I checked again the only thing that could explain it is that four napalm strikes went off in their army at the same time as I ran my flameing MW into it.

Were there trees there? Maybe burning Multiwinians make trees catch on fire? :o

i say if it saved more friendly lives then lost it was wise.

however if it was a bad gamble i say foolish and/or "cold blooded" :idea:
