limit to the number of enhancement seeds?
« on: June 18, 2011, 12:35:48 PM »
is there a limit to the number of enhancement seeds that appear? is it related to the number of asteroids you hold, or the number of trees you have, or even to the number of seeds? i've been trying to get a particular level to where it's populated entirely by enhanced defence trees, and i'm wondering if i let it run long enough, perhaps enough enhancement seeds will appear to upgrade each tree and create an unstoppable army of laser seeds.

also, i can't walk underneath elm trees any more. they look too much like
defence trees full of bombs.

i was just playing the level called Event Horizon, and i wanted to build up the biggest possible reserve of seeds before the main event. i kept going until i had all of them that weren't owned by the ai player, and it took about half an hour.. in that time, i only got four enhancing seeds. wondering about limits, if any more would show up if i let it run for a while.

Enhanced seedlings and normal Seedlings is, as far as I belive, for the game considered as the same thing, only that enhanced has faster speed. I belive this is so, because when scripting a movement, it doesn't care about enhanced or normal seedlings, but I don't know...

In the scneario of yours, maybe if you let some of the normal seedlings die, there should be space for the enhanced, but the normal seedlings spawn much more frequent than enhaanced since you got more trees that spawn the normal seedlings :P
