    Nuke Siren poll

    Just throwing some more ideas and getting feedback.

    Variables may bug on some maps, my idea for determining range is to find all player starts and pick the biggest distance between a pair.
    Which will obviously render the Siren useless in maps like TwinLabs... unless somebody has another good idea.

    Find the distance from the core to the map's furthest boundary within a closed space that is connected to the core. Set the nuke siren's initial detection range to 10% of this value, then add 11%, 12%, 13%, 14%, and finally 15% with each additional upgrade, respectively.

    If you can just find that distance, my suggestion wins.

    how about doing what scourge said but based on max dustance between cores instead? It should provide a smaller range

    1200 with expensive upgrades seems good

    50-60% on all maps at 2.5k would be good

    Cores can be extremely close together in maps, which is why I've modified my suggestion to make the distance on which the range is based the longest distance between a boundary of a closed space containing the core and the core itself. The only time this would present a problem is if teleportation was required to access the core in a remote space that isn't connected to the rest of the map, but no examples of this do (or should) exist.

    This distance would probably be a difficult value to acquire, as might the walking distance between two cores in as direct a path as possible. We could do "distance between cores," but it would also require a calculation of the most direct walking path between the two cores; which distance is used for the range would depend on which is greater. If the walking distance is greater, then the maximum range should be half of the walking distance; otherwise, it should be up to 75% of the distance between cores.

    I encourage whoever will be doing future dev on the siren to consider that the range is a cylinder and that 50% of the map coverage is likely to mean that the nuke siren should have potentially 100% map coverage if placed in the center; a nuke siren with 50% map coverage will only effectively cover 25% when placed at one end of the map, rendering it effectively useless on booster-jetpack maps.

    i agree with keith

    1200 ru for make siren

    lv1 = +90
    lv2 = +180
    lv3 = +270
    lv4 = +360
    lv5 = +450

    siren lv 5 radius = high range (60% of minicivil area)

    Base upgrade cost is 50...
    I'd make it 150 if Expensive poll wins.
