Quote from: Madman666 on October 12, 2018, 08:18:01 PMVery interesting. Can you give us some more information?- Like if you have 5 scanners, that means each and every raid will be "delayed"?- Is 4 hours the maximum delay, a random number, or we can fiddle with it in the mod options?- Do you have any plans for adding something to track other events (like fallouts, storms, eclipses) like forecasting?
Quote from: Madman666 on October 13, 2018, 01:35:31 AMActually 6 hours are not that much. Better than nothing of course, at least you will be able to put on a helmet and gather eveyone, but i was more like a day or two, for more through preparation. Like you get a message that enemies approach from the west for example, so you have the time to gear everyone up, shuffle turrets around, go scatter some traps near map's borders... So it would be nice to have second tier of scanners eating more power, costing more resources, but spotting raids a day or two away.Still thats very nice mod you've done I assume motion scanner sprite is a placeholder?

Just guaranteed damage, if not to people - then to furniture.Since those pods fly high, they actually should be fairly easy to spot with radars from much further away, so they can have same delays really. At least pinpointing their drop zone could make them less cheesy, cause you can prepare surprises and evacuate people\animals\furniture.
