- How can I make the units that my factories produce head
straight to a given point (rally point in Z:SS)?
A - Lack of rally points are
a serious drawback in the original Z gameplay - it just
wasn't created on that time. To move your produced units
quickly to the battle fronts, get used to cycle through
your factories [F3], hit [A] and send them to the front
using the minimap.
- Why sometimes I click a single unit and a group of units
is selected? I don't get it..
A - Actually, Z has a very
ingenious and original method of forming groups. Once you
bounding-box-drag a group of units, that's it, they're grouped!
Now everytime you select one of those units, the whole group
will be selected. To disband a group, simply hit DELETE.
- The fast units just can't keep close enough to the slower
units to make them effective. Is there any way to make formations
A - Yeah, a pretty clever one
indeed. Hold down the [Shift] key while you drag the bounding
box and the faster units will constantly "wait"
for the slower ones so that everybody in the group get to
the destination together.
- How the heck can one computer light tank beat two mediums
tanks I had? That's cheating isn't it?
A - Not really. Z combats have
a big "random factor" on them, similar to RPG
games. Obviously 90% of the times the situation you described
will work the other way around, but there are just some
times when you'll run out of luck. Sometimes frustrating,
but really fun, specially when luck smiles to you and not
to your opponent =D
- What does those grunts work for anyway??
A - Try piles of them grouped
with a heavy tank, it's quite impressive. And no matter
how many times the enemy snipe your heavy tank, you'll always
have those cheap units to make your expensive one keep going.
Other than that, don't ask, after all they removed the grunts
from Z:SS, didn't they?
- How can I install Z Expansion on Windows 2000??
A - There's currently no known
way. Except BB decide to wipe the dust from their original
Z and make some kind of patch or workaround to it, you'd
better stick to good'ol Win98 to play the good'ol Z =)
