Feature Proposals/Improved Construction Animations

Detailed build animations ala StarCraft II would be a lovely feature.

Styles of animation

Human buildables

  • In outside areas (ones with a visible line of sight to the skybox), human buildables could fly down from the heavens, as if jettisoned from a ship high above, out of sight.
  • Show buildables teleporting into place.
  • Show buildables appear in a semi-finished state then assemble themselves.

Alien buildables

  • Have thick creep that covers the ground ala Starcraft. Dynamically create a bump on the surface (implying that something is moving underneath) that travels from the Overmind to the target location, which bursts through and somehow morphs into the desired buildable.
