I play as Nexus and i build all the way up the tech tree and i can't for the life of me figure out what to do with the oil pump i looked at the site and it doesnt say anything about it in the information part. Can someone tell me what it does and how to build it?

It was explained in the FAQ I believe (the manual you can download)

You mean the above right?

I believe it acts like a oil derrick i.e. provide cash.

The manual will tell you a lot more details. It's only five meg zipped...you should see it UNzipped. nearly a hundred meg! I tell ya, it's worth a download just for the most efficient zip compression ever :blush:

Believe me, I put a lot of hours into it to make sure it gave you a big advantage when it comes to using the game.

Either way, enjoy your new oil pumps :cool:

i got it open its HUGE you really did do an amazing zipjob and it was very useful i learned the weaknesses of many units and can now deal with almost any unit, but the Wraith artillery spams that the AI do.
BTW you probebly already know this but the AI is waaay uneven NEXUS AI is really hard when on brutal but freedom and allied legion is only a challange that i can easilly overcome. not to mention having a freedom league ally is nutz while i do like having 30 hellstorm cannons protecting my base it gives me NO room to build they sometimes surround my base. actually i think you fixed that. nvm

Lol. NEXUS AI isn't particularly harder than AL or FL...they just send bigger waves of their uber units. I won't tell you the best counter for Wraiths in my experience...but air attacks are always helpful :huh: Just keep them from being gunned down by everything else.

You must know where to get such a converter though. PDF995 is a good one. I could convert the manual to pdf if anyone would like that.

I don't know what version you have, but in my version that is not possible. It can be easily converted though. It's a handy 'plugin' you have in Word, allowing you when you choose print, you choose the PDF995 instead of your printer (if you have one), and it prompts you with a file save window.

One of free pdf maker progs what i know are CutePDF, i have used that and its very handy..

Second way is OpenOffice.org 2.0 where the pdf creater is intergared. I did test that and it didn't affect the lay-out so it seem to be safe way to export pdfs..

But i would prefer the cutepdf better to this case..

I would've used PDF, but it removes the hyperlinks I put in :sad: Besides, I'd rather keep it as word for my own reasons...ie, you can't edit a PDF. Feel free to make your own conversion of it if you want, but then you'll moan when I release a newer version of the manual which is up to date.

Or, when it is released, release it as .doc and as a .pdf. That way people can choose.
Pdf is indeed not editable and the owner of the document should always keep the .doc file in case editing is neccesary of course.
Don't know what can be done about that hyperlink issue really. I can't remember I've seen a .pdf with hyperlinks so perhaps it's not possible to have hyperlinks in a .pdf file.

Yes it can be done so hyperlinks work.. I have test that today on linux with OpenOffice.org 2.0 where are function called "Export Directly as PDF".

The manual size is now 990 kb on pdf form.

Umm... the whole point is that YOU keep it as DOC for editing, but release it on the site as PDF. The people that download it don't need to edit it at all.

My version, converted with PDF995, is 1.23 Mb... UNzipped.
