This is very weird. I've tried many things, but my computer keeps saying that I don't have permission to view or extract the contents of the zip file. When I tried redownloading the game from itch, it tells me that it is corrupted.
This is an idea for a resource-like object (ie: it can be picked up/dropped). Like the resources, it slows down the bots to carry it, and they can't attack. Unlike the resource, it can't be secured to a base.
A beacon looks like black ball styled like the resource "ball". When picked up, it can be "activated" or "deactivated "via action block. It takes 1 second to activate/deactivate the beacon.
Activated beacons glow brighter with the same color as the team which activated it.
It continues to be activated after being dropped or the bot which is holding it dies, however it does become deactivated after a period of time (10 seconds). Other teams can then activate it if it is deactivated, or deactivate and then activate it again under their team.
The beacon could be implemented to be used in domination style battles, or help with advanced combat tactics.
Some sample conditions are "if closest beacon is not activated", "if closest allyActivated beacon is at mediumRange", and "if closest shortRange ally carries beacon". The main parameters of course would be Activated (checks to see if it is activated at all), AllyActivated (checks to see if it has been activated by an ally). Deactivated would probably not be needed.
