Oh, I can see why that happens. I will definitely be fixing that.

I can understand your frustration. It has happened to me as well. I do wonder though, is this different from normal behavior on maps with blast psions and mines? To combat the scenario, it is possible to unequip mine when fighting blast psions.

I thought the game treats the two halves of the final battle as two different battles, so wouldn't that be normal?

He mean that the HP didn't regenerate, retaining only the current HP.

I can possibly force every enemy to avoid mines for the entire battle on islands with blast psions. Is this a preferable solution?

The re-balancing of the Launcher (or Minelayer, as it's now known) and the graphical improvements have really put this squad over the top in terms of quality. The Minelayer still feels like a bit of an odd man out compared to the other three mechs, but it now pulls its weight and is able to offer a properly unique playstyle through its mines that simply wasn't present in the previous iteration, so its quite adequate in terms of gameplay variety and balance. Besides, from what you have told me, the Minelayer is true to its counterpart from the game this squad's four units come from, so a completely seamless integration with the other three mechs as the Jeep, Tank, and Chopper have with each other appears to be off the cards. At this point, therefore, I have no problem updating this squad's rating from an A to an A+, which includes the Minelayer. You do outstanding work and I look forward to seeing what your next mod has in store.

I think it's better to just advise players to disable the weapon when they face Blast Psions and the Psion Abomination.

Updated all my mods that uses the library modApiExt in order to fix a mod incompatibility with other mods that used a slightly different version of the library. Let me know if anything broke in the process.

Lemonymous, great squad you've created here. Did a 4 isle hard run (chopper. jeep, tank) and enjoyed the challenge of using non-massive units. They start off very similar to Rift Walkers with slightly less damage output but become a bit better by the end, though that non-massive attribute keeps them in line. I did pick up a Teleporter and Wind Torrent so I hope those didn't skew my end game up too much. I will just have to try again since I had a good time with their playstyle. May have to try that Rocket Artillery/Minelayer/Launcher as well, though I've heard the mixed reviews about it. I also like the mobility involved with the chopper, jeep, tank combo, plus I had Ariadne in the jeep to help deal with the proximity it has to attain to be effective. She helped with the spawn blocking objectives as well. Looking forward to trying some other combinations and checking out your other squad creations.

Thanks for the mini battle report! Teleport and Windtorrent surely cannot hurt a run!

As the many names for the 4th mech might suggest, it has changed many times. The reviews in this thread does not talk about the current iteration. I am obviously biased, but I think it can pull it's own weight, and plays a very different role than the other mechs in the squad. I hope it serves you well if you decide to try it.
