I see why redoing the maps is necessary now. Reminds me how I had to redo parts of Metroid II Evolution 84+ from scratch because major changes were needed and I couldn't figure out what the old code did

I couldn't figure out what the old code did 
Sounds like my life. I can never figure out old code. Sometimes I try to optimize things… then I wind up breaking what I didn’t understand in the first place and trying to fix it - which always winds up less optimized than before! Thanks for the support though! It is really nice!

I've never finished a project, there is always a way to improve!
What's my calc's name? Convert $37 to decimal. Look up that element in the periodic table. Then take the abbreviation of that element and you have it!
Look! A slime!    <(^.^)>

I am about halfway done creating the new levels. I also made a bunch of tweaks and added a new unit!
I would be happy to post a beta if anyone is interested in testing the game. On a side note, the game's executable code (no data) is reaching 30K

I usually just ended up rewriting the entire code lol. Took less time. And this is why when I tried to revive Illusiat 13 after years of hiatus it died again almost immediately :P (the other reason being that I had started to lose interest in programming)

Glad to see :D. And darn, that,s a lot of code. Glad you can still work within the limitations, though. I might be ok for a beta but I dunno if I'll have much time to test.

I have three more levels to make. I also added a lot of little things to make it seem like a pc game such as a text box appearing on tiles to tell you what they are when you hold your cursor there for a while. I even added scroll bars for some menus! 4 levels of difficulty has been added - easy, normal, hard, and insane. It is almost hard to die on easy and there are some levels I can't beat on insane. I added 2 more units to bring the total count up to 23 and changed a lot of old ones. You now receive a score when you beat a level. I have further improved all of the ai's to make them seem a lot smarter. (No more fighters walking past their target because it moved) I will post some screenies when I work up the motivation to deal with wabbitemu. The whole game is more balanced now.

I am continuing to work on the game. I added another building and reworked monster spawns to make them make more sense. All levels now slowly increase in difficulty as time goes on. I may add researchable tech, but that will be an afterthought if it gets added at all. You can now press STAT on the unit menu to receive a summary of the unit before you buy it and to know which building is required to access it.
