Source Signal: Lieutenant Axi Gridiron

Comm Target: Zoe Vasquez

***

I'm... I'm sorry. I thought I was faster.

I'm bleeding out, Zoe. No more moonshine shots in the galley for me.

Guy stabbed me said something. Said they had a gun. A BIG gun.

Bigger than our Megaships.

If Vassago builds that... it's the end.

    Well as long as it has a trench run for a good drone pilot to drop a bomb into a tiny exhaust pilot. And it chains from reactor to reactor. Oooh see can use uav chain drones to fit the starwars reference nicely lol.

    Nooo, warcommander has that. Different guns with different specials using resource to refill ammo. So if we get gun placement on op it will be a big gun usin zyn to refill ammo, choose 1 of 5 unique damage types.. Corrosive penetrative, explosive, ballistic, concussive.

    So, I see that square base, roll up and flatten it. Suddenly there's sector police everywhere, the noob is crying on coms and everyone's looking at me like I'm the bad guy? Shoulda built a better base.

    I'm also not allowed back in that neighborhood.

    If not that I wouldn't be surprised if it was something like that. It's been a long time since we've gotten good damage dealing radioactive turret (Wendigo and Glacial turrets are purely for the slow) and it'd be cool if they added one.
    If you don't want a sarcastic answer, don't ask stupid questions.

    The previous one had every number be between 0-26 so the thought was to map that to a-z but that doesn't produce anything readable. The clue of 18 turns out to be the shift amount for a Caesar cipher, so mapping to a-z (where 0's were spaces) and reversing the shift produced readable text.

    This one had the clue of 8(18) and the range of values was 0-32. I immediately assumed (had to start somewhere) the 18 was the shift again, so figuring out the extra layer added to this message was the focus. Looking at the first part of the clue (8), a quick check found that 32 was 26 in base 8.
    So convert the number from base 8 to base 10, then map to a-z, then shift -18 to produce readable text.

    Anyway, I hope this turns out right...

    i stopped playing WC several years ago at lvl 5 or so, so, i did not know that but......That actually sounds kinda cool.  As a....'setteled player' I am usually maxed out on res anyway so it would be a good res sink and it would be something to change everytime a new hull came out and you could adapt it to play on that weakness.  however...as a base hitter that would suck. Having a weapon slot on the OP and special slots and special transformers would be nice to have.  My opinion anyway and it would be based on the mechanics of how it operated.  if it dealt the amount of damage as did the super duper mega rad cannon in the raids that would be too much.  However something to fit existing weapons into but unique specials to increase range and reload and even damage would be pretty damned cool. A Hyena with 175 range would be nice to have on the OP.

But it does allow users to accelerate time in the game. Rather than wait for something to be developed, a user can pay to accelerate the build time for units.

    Nice job decoding that, I tried to but did not move the letters over 18 on the cipher. Your text at the bottom appears to just be colored text boxed, that what you wanted?

    Thanks and yes. It well be interesting to see if they release more coded messages of greater difficulty.
    I needed specific colours since the message is encoded into the hex colour codes, however, the forum frequently doesn't play ball if you try to use colours other than the 6 provided in the editor.
    Maybe I went way over the top with it, at the very least I hope someone finds it a fun challenge.

    I'll admit I figured out the color thing's purpose, and made some headway (I THINK)? No solve yet. Stupid job taking up my codebreaking time.

    Great puzzle, and glad you're enjoying the ciphers!
