How many vehicles are people managing to build in their fleet?
So far I've only built a few extra to use as stationary turrets. Cab with a few blocks on it with no wheels so it can't go anywhere and a few machine guns on top of it. If it is close to your base and using machine guns, then make sure your base wont be in line of sight with the machine guns (toss a block behind them on the base side) otherwise if they will hit your base if they try shooting an enemy on the other side of it.

Suggestion for easy playtesting: Have a "Pacifist" mode, where enemies spawn with no wheels. It will allow players to grab parts from them, without them attacking every other minute

unfortunately even though I have been issued a an ice key,I can not use it as that company refuses to allow me to use them, is there any chance of a non- ice method of getting the beta's or even game at release?
Hi Harpo99999. We'll have to look into whether we're able to do this. Are you not able to play TerraTech at home instead?

Hello,
Great news ! Ill try it when i get home :)
Do you plan on realeasing change logs with versions ?
Hi Daniel. We will be publishing more detailed release notes. For our first Beta Programme release, we really wanted to just get it into everyone's hands and let them play the build and tell us what they think. I'll be maintaining a more comprehensive set of release notes in this forum and the Steam forum next week.

Giving the enemies no wheels would be a pain as they'd spawn and not be able to approach the player so you'd have to go all the way over to them.

Maybe we can put in a simple difficulty level that sets a damage multiplier on the enemy weapons.

I AM at home(which is also my workplace (self employed computer tech/programmer/3d printer))
Ah okay. So what's actually preventing you from running the latest release via Steam using the Steam key sent to you?

The beta is fun so far. It's a little difficult to figure out how to do things, though - the help screen helps, but perhaps it might be worth considering a wiki for further in-depth instructions?

Hey mate :) Some peoples (inlcuding me) are working on a TerraTech Wiki at the moment :)

You can find it here, although it's far from perfect as we need to add more thing and bla.

Atleast it's a start:D
