    PLANETARY DOMINATION PATCH 2.04
    Major content Overhaul
    LATEST VERSION: 2.03

    https://www.epicwar.com/maps/266999/

    SUMMARY: Planetary Domination has been out awhile now, and although feedback on the terrain and graphics was very positive, the game suffered from many gameplay flaws. In this huge patch many of these problems have been addressed, theres a new resource and research system, new units and new gameplay mechanics. Alot of the annoying and boring aspects of the game have also been removed. So if you enjoyed the setting and look of PDOM in the past hopefully this can persuade you to give it another go!

    GENERAL CHANGES:
    - RESOURCE SYSTEM: The most major change to PDOM is the resource system. Arkanor (gold) has been completely removed, only Iridium crystals are required to build bases and units.
    This removes the annoying need to convert mineral types and the Arkanor mines made the map too similiar to standard WC3 melee games.

    - RESEARCH: There is now a new research system, research points are required to expand your technology and evolve your hive. These are generated passively from your Research Arrays or Evolution Pools. This new system of teching adds some extra uniqueness to the map and differentiates it from WC3 or SC2 melee.

    - ANCIENT ALIEN TECHNOLOGY: More alien ruins can be found on the surface, these include the warp gates which can activated and work like waygates, opening up the terrain and providing some extra unpredicatbility to a match. Interacting wth these ancient and complex devices requires Research Points.

    - RADAR TECHNOLOGY: Both Alien Hives and Human corporations have access to long range radars, these monitor large areas of the map for activity and help in keeping your borders safe.


    ALIEN HIVES
    - THE HIVE QUEEN: The biggest addition to the alien species is the new Hive Queen super unit. She acts as the Hive Mind to your colony and has a range of useful long range abilities, she can also be upgraded to a powerful addition to the battlefield.
    But be careful, for your colony can not survive without its central mind, if the Hive Queen is killed your Hive is doomed. This game design also gives Humans another mission to hunt down the Alien Hive Queens.

    HUMAN CORPORATIONS
    - Lots of new content: New hero, the Engineer, new experimental units and new Drone unit types.

    Umm well this was such a big patch its best to think of it as a blank canvas so just asume everythings changes (no sorry I didnt do any patch notes as this was such a huge update).

    That was me, I played a game of it, I think you were in it actually? It was craxy but fun but I realised there was a big problem with minerals being resourced too fast, basicaly resources were so abundant they became almost worthless. Because this was such a major balance problem I'ved pulled the map while I work on a quick balance fix, it should be available again within 30 minutes to an hour.
