Interesting. Is the Talec kinda like the Zerg lurkers?
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Exactly, except that it can't move to a different location and it can't be detected.  The Talec was certainly inspired by the lurkers, and I almost drew "spines"  8)

There are people who can speak two languages, and they are called bilingual.  There are people who speak three languages and are therefore trilingual.  Then there are people who speak one language, and these people are called Americans.

COMMAND SHIP

It's probably very appropriate that the last of "my" ships (with Matthias working on the Xoas) is the most powerful unit in S.A.D.--The Tosonian Command ship.  Since the Tosonians have expensive, powerful units, the Command Ship is the most powerful of the capital ships.

The Command Ship does not have the ability to fire Plasma Torpedoes.  However, it can be upgraded to have a deflector shield and will have some sort of "Yamato Cannon" refillable upgrade.

YAY Battlecruisers! :D

Try to make them not easy to obtain, so people won't just rush with 9 of them for every type of game.

They're certainly hard to obtain, especially with a heavy cost, including in oxygen.  Besides, if your enemy has Hawks, Nautiluses, or Reclaudas in numbers (for about the same total cost as these command ships), the command ships are absolutely toast.  It's like wraiths against battlecruisers, scouts against carriers, etc.

Good :)

In SC2, they're doing balancing now to make the BCs slightly more expensive because they could be obtained too early.

I'm holding on coding until college starts next week, but I didn't want that to stop me from making progress.  (DJ, I am NOT quitting the project, so please don't say something like "I hope you don't quit."  :) )

LUNA PLATFORM

The Luna Platform, an air building, allows construction of Sagh'vahs, Borces and Hawks.  It will also research +1 attack and +1 armor for Sagh'vahs, Hawks, and Borces.

Nah I know, don't worry. I was just worried when you initially left because in the past some ppl left the same way and did not hold their promises x.x. I thought you already started college like most ppl in late August, though? O.o

Also I like how you got air buildings :D

Here's the sprites, respectively, for the Hawk and the Startank.

I forgot to list Tosonian buildings as "Air buildings" and "Ground buildings," so here's what I have so far:

Air Buildings
------------------
Rcasis
Chasler
Point Defense (Now called Dalt)
Fog Machine
Luna Platform

Cool! Does this means you are working on this again, by the way? I noticed there wasn't as much progress in the last few weeks but you were working on Correlation. :)

I'm doing small stuff.  Like I said, I need time when I can just sit down and work out the ship's fog of war, since the computations are not straight-forward
