New this week in Thunder Run:
Craftable Security Nodes
Following the removal of all legacy-style Security Nodes and achievements over the last several weeks, the all new Craftable Security Node System is finally here! Here’s an overview of how the new system works:
Technology for the Firestorm, Ironsides, and Farsight Security Networks can now be researched and upgraded as high as level 10 within the Weapons Lab. Be sure to go check out and research L1 for each network right away! It’s free!
After the technology is researched, click on any of your base buildings followed by “Change Node” to mount your desired node to each building. While you’re in this menu: you’ll also notice that the exact stats of each node can be seen via pop-up text by hovering your mouse over the node! Better yet, multiple nodes can be crafted at the same time!
We’ll continue to add additional levels for Security Nodes in the future if there is interest, and will also add the ability for players with maxed out techs to research more specialized Security Network techs like “damage/defense” / “range/damage” / “range/defense”, etc.
Level 16 Elite BMP-1 & Elite TOS-1A
The Level 16 Elite BMP-1 and Elite TOS-1A are here.
As with the recent max unit level increases, your Level 16 Elite BMP-1 and Elite TOS-1A will feature improved stats and no increase in battalion space requirements. As with any improvement in power, there is an increase in cost, production time, and repair time.
The best part about it? No blueprints are required for upgrading. As long as you have TOC12 and the new building levels for your Academy and Barracks, you can upgrade away!
To see where the design team currently stands on various Community suggested features and game improvements, check out the Thunder Run Voice of the Commander Tracker (tracker will receive some clean-up and updates to formatting in the very near future).
