    I still try to blast them. Whenever I'm trying to recover/protect that node when I'm on red, I almost always fire a shot towards them because they glow blue and kinda look like a vehicle. STUPID LITTLE TRICKSY ROBOTS!

        Bah, what do you have to to mine in Holland?

        It's not exactly common, more like relatively common in huge open pit mining facilities.

          Yeah, the machine in OP's pic is just your average 240m long, 96m high, 5 years building time excavation machine.

          It's also utterly trivial to move it around. Takes only three weeks for 70 people to move it 22km and you barely have anything to do besides planting grass in front of it and building temporary bridges:

              LOL, that would require such a huge map to play in....that thing would take up like 1/2 of Torlan all by itself!

                Sorry for the bumpedi-bump but I thought it was relevant enough for anyone who managed to miss it in the Releases sub-forums
                (shame on you )

                If WAR-PowerSurge's wasn't a tribute to this mighty machine, this is!

                  I could've sworn that I saw another, more recent thread, on this same topic.
