Name stays the same
You cannot build heavy scorpions out of your seige workshop anymore
You must place them with your map editor.
Gives them 1000hp
A slight blast radius
A larger attack range
Makes them Stationary (Unmovable)
Makes them be able to be repaired by a villager for free.
Cannot attack units attacking it.
It works like a turret except you cannot build them with a villager,
you place them in the map editor and they can be repaired for free.
MAKE SURE WHEN PLAYING A GAME YOU DONT UPGRADE SCORPIONS TO
HEAVY SCORPIONS BECAUSE YOU WONT BE ABLE TO BUILD THEM OR SCORPIONS ANYMORE!
WHEN PLAYING MULTIPLAYER ALL PLAYERS MUST HAVE THE SAME .DAT FILE
'Ground Turret' is a utility which changes the heavy scorpion unit into a 'turret'. It is not a new unit, simply a modification created by genied2.
Usefulness: It's not very useful. This can easily be done using GenieD2, or even without data editing you can change attack/hp and put an invisible cliff underneath to prevent movement, though you can't change the blast radius or range. In addition I can not think of many practical applications where this may come in handy. This is something like the ballista tower of AoE, except that it doesn't look like a tower. Score 2.0
Novelty: It is a creative idea, but not really very much. 2.0
Quality: The turret does work as described, except that the attack is displayed as 1000 when it is actually not. Also this is not a new unit, thus it can affect gameplay as you can't upgrade scorpions. 3.0
Instructions: The way the turret works is properly described and there is a readme. However it would be better to have a small example scenario. 4.0
This utility is neither very useful nor difficult to do. The only purpose it really serves is to demonstrate the advantages of using GenieD2. There are a lot of great things which can be achieved using GenieD2, but there's no point making a utility for everything.
