Any plan to get rid of carcasses and debrises of structures?

design task?

I love to see remaining dead bodies of alien structures, and some debrises of destroyed marine structures.

But, are you planning to find ways to get rid of those things, not just let them disappear awkwardly?

Especially to see hive's carcass disappearing is kind of... strange.

Melt? Explode? Disappearing as if they are getting cloaked?

Answer me plz :)

    oh then why don't those nano bugs nibble and kill the hive instead of marines trying so hard to kill them lol @_@

    The hives immune system is still alive and would eat the nanites. Also, nanites stop nanites.
    Coffee and Jetpacks. Which is better?

    It's called nano-gridlock, and it's a cornerstone of Natural Selection's technobull%&#!

            Once the infestation reaches the Command Chair, the process begins. One Gorge enters the chair to provide the necessary height. Another climbs on its shoulders to access the controls.

            A Gorge Lab is quickly established, staffed by microscopic Gorges who work tirelessly to unlock the secrets of Frontiersman Technology, stopping only to change their lab coats when they become dirtied. Once the research progresses to a certain point, the Gorgecom gives the order. Nanites are called into service.

            The armature forms. A chosen Gorge, tested many times in the field of battle, enters the machine.

            Servos whir; miniguns spin up in diagnostics; an Exogorge is born.

    Sounds like a good idea, so when on infestation they get absorbed and a small amount of resources is gained for the alien team, near marines or structures nanobots recycle them and they gain a little resource.

    I'm not sure what we'll add here but improving the deaths is high up on our list. I imagine we'll do a short animation, then transition to (much better) rag doll, then watch as the nano grid 'consumes' the body back into it.

    At 24 seconds we see a death animation that I believe would be perfect for marines in ns2. At 1:03 we see a couple more examples. I like this kind of floaty digital fire look.

    As for aliens, I wouldn't mind seeing alien structures/bodies 'melt' into a small temporary amount of croach on the floor that fades as if no cyst is around.
