Can I have more details on how to make the Ion cannon projectile?
Im thinking making a regular shot, with beam and ending, a just beam, and a beam with ending for when it hits. 18 of each for 36 directions.. yet somehow, when I count, these grps end up with 34, not 36.. Oh well.
Just give me more details on how you want it.
Weapon: Charged Ion Blasts
Ionic Discharge sounds cooler, doesnt it?
We should make a protoss attack (or spell) 'Psionic Discharge' if we keep this one Charged Ion Blasts.

Armor: Low (1)
Attack Ground: Psionic Parasite
Attack Air: None
Min Range: 0
Max Range: 10-25
Type: Manually Targeted (Spell)
Charge-Up Time: 0
Damage: Medium (3-35/s[Depends on range between Queen and unit)
Splash Radius: None
Damage Type: Psionic
Background: The Arch-Queen puts a parasite on a unit using its mind, leeching its life out.
Built From: Infested Command Center
Requires: Queen Thingy(I forgot name), Infested Command Center, Hive
Mineral Cost: 250-500
Gas Cost: 100-300
It really needs a new name..
An attack is much simpler than a set of spells, so I'd rather stick with that. I see it working as a big huge cannon that does a ton of damage.
Maybe so, but critics like it when new spells are observer. New spells are more interesting then new attacks.
My own new unit Protoss Dargon
Cost: Very High
Description: A powerful protoss interplanetary battleship, used in large groups as support. Can Sacrifice its energy (and when that runs out, its own shields) to restore the shields of allied units. Uses latest technology to shape its shield.
1) Boost Shield: Sacrifices its energy/shields to restore shields to another allied unit with shields.
2) Warp Shield: Change the shape of shields (if any exist) to reduce damage taken by outside attacks. (It's like an ability to increase defense) Temporary, drains energy.
The name isnt good, you can change that, I was in a hurry.
But this is a decent idea.
Copy paste everything from the Shield Battery ability, give it to a flying unit.. replace a Ganthridor.
And it is highly strategic.
