Re: I don't think I ever posted these here

Not second guessing or soliciting second opinions. When I made my missions, which is what I am always referring to, I was using D2-XL 1.11.108.0 In that version I designed several levels around the fact that robots would damage other robots and I would play it on Hotshot. I have recently run through...

Re: I don't think I ever posted these here

I thought robots damage robots was great. Physics were starting to make more sense in the Descent world. Wouldn't it be great to be immune to the effects of your own concussion and mega missiles?...like the robots are. Not only that they have an unlimited supply of them. If I had that power I COULD ...

Re: I don't think I ever posted these here

On a final note: If something seems odd in certain parts of these levels, these were made with a much older version of DLE-XP and D2-XL. The AI options were different. I think the option "robots damage robots" is no longer in effect on the new version of D2-XL. It played an important part in a few o...
