An excellent conversion! The long gun barrel on the Ball takes some
getting used to, but it's AWESOME to see mecha in action! One thing though,
the turrets now shoot from ground-to-ground too, making the bunker almost
worthless.

Also, some of the mecha can be repaired by the balls, while some need to be
healed with the Medic MS. In the heat of battle it can be hard to keep
track which units need to be repaired or healed...

Bonus - now the "Vultures" can fly! Hehe! And they crank out fast too!

Errata - the "Core Booster" is actually the space version of the
Core Fighter II. Also the FAZZ was incorrectly named "FAZZeta".

Several of the buildings do not display the full name in the unit ID window.
Maybe try abbreviating the words?

Played 2 games, both times the game crashed/quit unexpectedly. This seems
to happen when I am engaging the enemy. Also the advanced structures can't
seem to lift off when I need to add an extension/expansion to the building
and need to relocate the building to get room.

Now bring on the Toss and Zerg conversions! EXCELLENT WORK!

Eddie
