Proximity Mines
« on: October 20, 2015, 02:56:13 pm »
Hey there!

I've found some really old threads (2007-2009) about that stuff but they aren't implemented yet.... are the PMs still planned to be a part of the game someday?  :)

I don't know, I'd figured that by 2080 something like the Ottawa Treaty would be enforced worldwide, but if someone can come with a reasonable explanation of why UN sponsored PHALANX would be allowed to deploy anti-personnel mines — within urban areas no less! — something like that could be implemented, assuming of course any technical issues can be solved...

Perhaps a timer could have been invented by then to render any APM's passive after a skirmish... they are/were useful though aren't/weren't they.
After a few civ casualties is a small price to pay to save the world... unless.

    Where are the proximity mines?

        Not implemented yet (at version 2.3.x). [2] They will be implemented for sure.

It will hold exactly as long as the movers and shakers are those who expect to invade other, rather than be invaded, and not a day longer, quite obviously. Realpolitik.

Some beasts are more equal..? ;)

Once it can be made to specifically affect aliens, why not.
There are lots of non-urban areas.
Also, this raises the question of remote-controlled devices - as previously discussed, even unarmed remote camera would be much more useful than a blind mine. Reasonable middle ground between mines and HWPs could be worth deploying.
