Bug Description

So a fix was made that when Terror Drone kills an aircraft in the air, it falls down and dies.

Now, when a Terror Drone kills a subterranean unit which is currently moving underground, it instantly reappears at terrain cell where subterranean vehicle was killed. IMO it should be dead as well, just like in the aircraft case.

- make a subterranean unit
- infect it with Terror Drone
- move underground
- let drone kill the unit
- profit

I'd say if a unit is parasited, it shouldn't be able to tunnel.

On what grounds? A tank can still drive just fine when a Terror Drone lives inside it, so why would a subterranean tank not be able to dig anymore?

maybe the terror drone climbed inside the drill machinery? o.O

Yeah, and it should make flying units unable to fly as well because it reached rotors, right? :P

IMO if anyone wants such behavior, it should be optional.

Yea Speeder, I do not need this anyway, but cannot say because of my case that this is not useful. It is actually useful, and it is logical, however, personally I do not put attention on Terror drone, I plan to redesign it to Suicide drone.

I still do agree with the original request though. Terror Drones should die when they kill a unit underground.

Blade (nadia-xy) wrote :

Indeed, it would make most sense as its not like the terror drone is designed to dig itself out...

Renegade (renegade) wrote :

Well, it *can* dig into tanks...

Plus, the drilling tank must leave a tunnel of sorts, since the ground doesn't cave in above. ;)

But yeah. We acknowledge the existence of the issue...no point in debating it further.
