Hi there. First post, but been reading a long while.
About base building, outlined in the recent blog. Will I be able, in the finished game of course, to build defence buildings? If this is not planned, I would like to suggest the following buildings:
Walls. Breaking line of sight along long corridors and make the possibility to create mazes to easily defend, perhaps at the entrance to the complex. Destructible of course.
Turret walls. Thick walls breaking line of sight but with turrets (rockets, laser, plasma, whatever). Placing theese along corridors with long lines of fire would be very fun. Destructible of course. And should only operate if the security center is online.
Security cameras. Could have long line of sights and add a bonus to aiming to all soldiers aiming at a creature in range of a security camera. Should also only work if security center is online.
Short walls. Placed along corridors only as cover for soldiers.
I imaging building a real maze at the entrance, with turrets and good cover for soldiers. The enemy would of course destroy these defences, and then I would fall back to a secondary defence position, and when that gets destroyed fight room for room.
In my opinion, that would be FUN!
