I noticed this too, looks like we need programming-like exactness. Maybe this?:
Only MACs can place and construct buildings [Build150 version]
MACs can place and construct, marines can help construct
Commander places buildings, MACs and marines can help construct [NS1 mechanic, MACs acts as backup]
...with additional sub-options that can be mixed and matched:
Marines must carry some item to help construct
Commander must research tech before marines can help construct
Marines can pick up and carry MACs
Marines build at a different speed than MACs (probably slower)
MACs can only build within a certain range of command stations [powergrid requirements]
Commander must research tech before marines can carry MACs
MACs deploy into a building, Marines build the building.
Marines can only partially build the buildings, a MAC must finish the building.
Remember, this is for Marines only. It is likely that if Marines can aid in building somehow, it is likely Gorges will too for symmetry. But that's for another topic.
Note that Flayra has weighed in on the subject: http://www.unknownworlds.com/ns2/forums/in...t&p=1790890 This means the current system is NOT set in stone as still open to debate. Please leave discussions of the systems in that thread as well, this thread's main purpose is to get a quick and dirty popularity measurement.
Note if you add any modifier to 1 besides C, that means you actually want 2.
Again, if you have a new option I forgot, post it and I'll add it in.
By raw main choice (no modifiers): 1: |||||||||| |||||||| 2: |||||||||| ||||| 3: |||||||||| |||||||||| |||||||||| |||||||||| |||||||||| ||||||||||
DISCLAIMER: This is in no way even remotely a scientific poll. There is self-selection bias, a small sample size bias, and being influenced by seeing other responses bias. Oh, and the potential for ballot stuffing. This is an experiment to get a handle on people's current thoughts and using the results of this poll to support ANY argument is foolish. At least until I do a write-up in a day or so.
