Placing and Moving Barricades

Placing Barricades

  • When placing New Barricades, the Player has the ability to lay multiple Barricades in back to back succession.
    • When purchasing Barricades, the next potential barrier will populate for placement. The Player may then choose to continue placing barriers until they are finished or chose end by pressing the “Finish” button to exit Barricade placement.

Moving Existing Barricades

  • The Player may move existing Barricades in 1 or 2 ways :
    • By “Left Clicking” each Barricade and selecting the Move command from the pop-up menu.
    • By Holding “Shift+Left Click” on each Barricade to bypass the Menu and place that barricade instantly into Move mode.

IRON CURTAIN - Excellent, Commander! Now that our Barricades block direct fire, nothing's getting through!
  — Level 5 Message [src]

My analysis of human behavior has revealed that most women suffer from an unhealthy amount of insecurity. can you surround the Command Center with barricades so I can "feel" more safe and loved?
  — R.U.B.I. - Mission - Safety Check [src]

Further analysis has taught me that human men like to feel that women need them. From now on, I'll attempt to provide this type of feedback for you. Oh, Commander, I'm such a lucky girl to have you protecting me. How did I do?
