Oh, and this is kind of what I’m going for here:

Just ignore that red line :P

btw how is the base?

Why the heck do you need Photoshop? Use MS Paint. Here’s how you do it.

Get the map screenie…then:

Open another MS Paint window.
Open yard planner.
Screenshot it (aka printscreen)
Crop it to only have the part of the yard planner.
Copy it.
Close MS Paint window, open the window with your base.
Paste it in somewhere suitable (not blocking view of base).
Upload it.

Honestly, some people can be pretty dumb on the internet. People should already know how to screenshot.

who the heck cares dragonarcherz

Wormzer and Teratorn ignore walls. North side only protected by wall. Based doomed.

@ XCalibre, looking at the picture it has no anti-air things though. Couple of them on the outside might go well :) Plus some mines and maybe some snipers on the outside and I should be ok, right?

Anti Air and snipers on the outside.

So your snipers have no support other than from each other, the anti air only fires vs air. First a number-based ground army (they instantly die against putty raged project-X or fangs for instance) wipes those. That base really only works on pure ground forces, and even then it only works against one wave, which could consist only of eye-ras from the north. Right after that sacrifice a fairly regular group of monsters can take out the Town Hall and maybe even live to plunder the resources it they are crabatrons or the like.

Another possibility would be a brain army, the AI does not take too big turns just to get an opening in the wall, so they might decide to nibble in from the north instead and brains aim for town hall and storage first.

The guy above me has the right idea about surviving, until someone catapults half his towers to death. But in a monster invasion point of view it works, just don’t expect not to be looted.

I’m changing my design of the base =D, will post as soon as I’m done.

@qqqwxs:
I, after searching the kixeye forums a bit more, realized the current flaws of a bdb setup and augmented my layout to compensate. Here is my current base layout for all interested parties. Most of the towers are upgraded to higher levels and the 2 outside bunkers are fully leveled. Tell me what you think and I’ll help you if you’d like the favor returned.


This layout effectively nullifies all catapult shots directed at the center or either of the sides due to its massive overlaps and even distribution of firepower. In the future I plan to upgrade the 4 sniper towers in the southwest to help avert airborne attacks.

Some great ideas here, what do you all think of mine? I haven’t been attacked yet, so I’m not sure if I’ve been lucky, or if there are better targets than myself.

I was actually wondering a different question. What did you spend your shiny on? I see that you only have 17 left and was wondering if you didn’t buy any did you spend it on plot size upgrades (as I have) or something else?

And I finally got TownHall 5 so I can build happy number of blocks. Yes, happy is a number.

In the future I plan to upgrade the 4 sniper towers in the southwest to help avert airborne attacks.

Thank you for answering a question I had a while ago. I knew lasers could not hit airborne targets but I was wondering If anything else could or if the antiair defense was the only means to hit them.

By another player or by NPC monsters? What was the resulting damage? I’m used to CNN, I need constant wartime updates. You can text Robin Meade and do a salute to your troops.

Maybe I’ve been watching too much Headline News this morning……

@ Shorgun:
I spent my original shiny on another worker and a yard size upgrade. Then, after numerous surveys, I spent a lot of shiny on some yard size upgrades and speed ups for my map room and town halls. I plan on spending my next influx of survey gained shiny on resource pool upgrades.

That’s a fairly solid defense imo. I will try (to the best of my abilities) to list the pros and cons for you.
Pros:
Catapult Resistant (to a certain extent)
Well guarded silos and town hall
Nice tower coverage and overlap
Good wall placement/usage
Cons:
Poor trap placement
Easily Putty-bomb-leveled (due to damage invulnerability monsters could take out your flanks quite quickly)
Little/No pathing (not sure if that’s terrible in this case. However, I would try to path monsters to my strongest locations. Good places for you would be to your laser tower and monster bunker.)

All in all I think your base is well enough defended that it probably intimidates attackers to find another target.

Lol what. Didn’t I give instructions on the first page? Man I was too lazy to post my base before, let me take it right now.

@Destroyer80

Not necessarily. Destroyer80, there’s many bases in this game. I wouldn’t be surprised if someone had a similar idea to another person. Or read it in a guide etc. Or something. Sheez, your the noob.

Here’s my base, testing against a general army of various monsters.

And here’s the aftermath.

Army:
3 Pokey
5 Bolt
1 Eyera
3 Fink
10 Ichi
3 Banditos

Not the strongest army, just kind of closed my eyes, clicked random-ish ly. I think I might try a more common “Octo + Fink” combo… or maybe Ichi.

Comments?

And oh, see the booby traps at the bottom? I need help deciding where to place them, and where to place more booby traps (I have 15 IIRC)

And yeah, I’m level 4 with no tesla, laser, yard planner etc. because I was kinda busy past sev days so all I really did was collect resource, and built a level 4 town hall. Right now, saving to get those stuff.

Ummmm….. Wolfman copied my base in the first place. Ask him if you don’t believe me, lol.

Any suggestions on how to improve? Also sorry if it’s to big for the page I couldn’t find a way to make it smaller.

For what you have at the moment, it’s a pretty nice base. Obviously I would recommend buying towers and upgrades as soon as possible but, overall, it has some nice coverage and good catapult resistance.
