Civilian Defense Mod

As most of you know, I'm the author of the Civilian Defense featured mod. I would like to know what you guys think about it, being that it's been a year (roughly?) since it became a featured mod.

Is the balance good?
Are the objectives clear?
Does the UI communicate civilian information clearly?

Any other concerns?

Thanks

Changes I will make in the next week or so:
-Offense recieved initial sight of civilians
-Defense doesn't get reclaim from civ structures reclaimed
-Offense/defense beacons untargetable

can you make a list of maps or a small tut because when i wanted to run it with a friend we werent able to get it up and running
and pls reformate the tooltip
like this:
Code: Select all
<html><head/><body><p><span style=" font-size:12pt; font-weight:600; ">
CivileanDefense
</span></p><p><span style=" font-size:11px; ">
Fight for your faction! Earn honour by defending the shelterless civilean members of your faction or be fearded as their annihilator!
</span></p><p><span style=" font-size:14px; font-weight:600; ">
Rules :
</span></p><p><span style=" font-size:11px; ">
- Teams will be formed by the faction played
<br/>
- The faction team that has civilean buildings of their faction on the map will be the defenders, all others have to attack
<br/>-
---> it's really mapdepending: on SentryPoint Aeon would have to defend, on Loki for example UEF
<br/>
<br/>
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
<br/>
- Defenders are given "Defense-/Evacuationbeacons", every time a civilean truck reaches it, it will be evacuated and
<br/>
you permanently get your resourceproduction increased by 5%
<br/>
- In order to get an evacuation truck you have to reclaim civilean structures
<br/>
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
   <br/>
- Attackers are given "Attack-/Spawnbeacons", spawning reinforcement periotically. Ever time a civilean is killed the
  <br/>
  spawnrate will be permanetly increased by 5%, also a higher tec factory near the beacon will cause it to spawn T2/T3
   <br/>
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    <br/>
- Defenders win by destroying all attackers and evacuating at least 40% of the civileans
    <br/>
- Attackers win by killing everybody
<br/>
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
<br/>
</span></p><p><span style=" font-size:12px; font-weight:600; ">
Note that there might be maps with various factions buildings, where you have to attack AND defend!

Does it work with AI? -yes but ai will focus on enemy

played 3v3 me and 5 ai, i saw window on left
attack/evacuate
enemy teams

or maybe i tried wrong map? -yes i did, map must have civ buildings
it needs min2 human players? -no

best with human players, its like a new game mode
imo maybe its too easy for defence, just reclaim all civ buildings (some even got point defenses) and send them all to beacon.
maybe make evac trucks visible to attacker at least on radar if its not already

like this:


This topic explains it and gives many sample maps. The faction mentioned with the map is the defending faction.

As far as the tooltip, I'll ask zep to reformat it, he just copied and pasted what I put in the topic above. (Note, I made that topic last June, but I also updated it today just for you <3)
