Now you can play the wave defense scenario ad infinitum!

I added seperate biters that will scale infinitely.

The ammo tweak in this mod also uses seperate items, so nothing here will interfere with your vanilla game.

There are a lot of customization options that will allow you to find your own difficulty level.

Playing with your friends is recommended, but there is a "solo" mode with more starting items (~3x) and faster crafting.

The default scaling is designed to be very challenging and will (should?) kill you at some point.
(i'm still carefully testing the default settings, when i'm done i will update them (FEEDBACK PLEASE?))

Every 20 rounds you have to buy a satellite for 400.000+ points or the waves will come continuously.


When you're struggling: [SPOILER]
- Make a blueprint of your base and try to build the most important factory complexes first
- Build a defense in your base until you have enough items to build the outer defenses
- Make flamethrower towers - they may be much weaker than in the vanilla scenario but can still do good damage with enough research (maybe i nerfed them too much, so FEEDBACK PLEASE?)
- Try to research attackspeed as late as possible and save up ammo
- When you are supposed to launch a rocket, you can try to keep defending as long as possible to earn extra money (but save your game before... the difficulty is rising faster the longer you wait)

FEEDBACK PLEASE: post your settings, how far you made it, and what your strategy was

If you have a really old scenario save game (0.16.10 or older), you need to update it: replace the control.lua in your wave defense savegame with one from the scenario folders.
