#61 Did you know that you receive a free harvestor if you lose all your other harvestors?

I believe this is false.

Correction:You receive a free harvester if any one of your refineries is not without a harvester.

Therefore: You build 2 refineries. You lose all your harvesters. A new harvester arrives at BOTH refineries. Therefore, you get 2 new, free harvesters.

Please check this if you are in doubt.

He's partly right, making 2 refineries would mean that you have a minimum amount of harvestors of 2, every refinery that you build increases this number by 1, so if your harvestor amount gets lower then 2 (if you have 2 refineries) you get 1 for free delivered by carryall (not getting the carryall with it though)

I originally meant this, might've thought about something else while typing that :-

#40 Did you know that units walking over or close to a spice bubble burst the spice bubble? (excluding the fremen)

Maybe I think you mean INCLUDING the fremen..... ;)

#16 Did you that the fremen warrior fires twice as fast as the atreides sniper but with twice as weaker bullets

Did you know that your totally wrong? I'm not sure if a Sniper's shot is twice as powerful as the Warriors, but I can guarantee you with my house that a Warrior's ROF is NOT ONLY twice as quick as the Atreidies Sniper. A Warrior's ROF is almost 5 times of the Atreidies Sniper's ROF. (To be exact, its 4.5 times)(both no chervon)(Is exactly 5 times if the Warrior has 3 chervon and if the Sniper has no chervon

Actually:

[ATSniperGun]
Bullet = cal50_B
TurretMuzzleFlash = Smuzz2
ReloadCount = 76
--------
[FRFremenGun]
Bullet = cal50_b
ReloadCount = 40
TurretMuzzleFlash = Smuzz2

Dev_Mech, twice as fast is about right. But Ken, they use the same bullet, hence have the same range and do the same damage with the same modifiers.

I've spent another hour(s) getting all the unit averages and changing some colours.


All the unit averages are in the newbie guide.

Colours have been added.


I might add more things before i leave for a week but i forgot what. ???

btw. here's the original 'unit statistics' thread: http://www.dune2k.com/forum/?board=17;action=display;threadid=9298

How about you just try it in-game yourself?

Because I've tried it myself.

so isnt that kinda unbalanced? lol

150 for a visible sniper with loads of delay after firing

150 for an invisible sniper with same damage AND fires faster

Emperor is like a puzzle and every piece of the puzzle fits in. ;) That includes the atreides sniper and the fremen warrior.

That's strange... i clearly remember typing in the atreides' sniper info in the atreides section. I even put the atreides sniper up for community voting in the unit statistics thread.

Anyway, IM the statistics to me including the atreides sniper's unit statistics. (calculate the average community rating of the atreides sniper, no copying dune2k's statistics, they have to be yours ;))
