At 101 lava, the lvl 5 tower autofires all it has at any creeps. It also auto fires a few randomly at creeps. I would prefer to have them saved up longer than that, as a maze I am doing has bash towers at the start, and it wastes the lava, meaning kills I could get if they didnt autofire.

Ya, it's not really documented anywhere, but volcano towers (like real volcanos) will erupt on their own when you least expect it!

Well, that's not totally true. They will always erupt when they hit 100 lava... and never before that unless you manually erupt them yourself.

If it hits 100, and you only have a few creeps on the screen, it only shoots enough lava to kill all the creeps on the screen and saves the rest for later.

I can't let someone build up infinite amounts of lava. You may not realize it, but there is actaully peices of lava bouncing around inside the volcano.... if I let it get to 200 the game would start to lag.

You could just limit the amount it displays

After 25ish, people know each tower has alot and cant count each dot anyhow.

on the black hole map, i have already put 6 lvl 5 volcano , so when a creep was going out, one of my volcano fire at it, but the other dont fire, so i had a tower whit 152 lava inside,

just to let you know that your system have a mistake :)

Well, you can have mor than 100.... but if creeps are on the screen it will try and get rid of some of the lava to get itself below 100.

If people really want a tower to be able to hold more thn 100 I guess I can do that.... if that's what the majority wants....

I think it should be completely random - between 50 > 250 so it act likes a volcano

Perhaps have an additional upgrade level to the volcano for $450 that prevents the random fire and will only go when F is pressed.

Randomness is bad :(

Randomness = luck = makes levels for them bad. It wouldnt be bad for levels that /only/ use volcanos, but for levels that use a mix of any kind, using volcanos after they pass the killzone means it will need less to kill the monsters, which means more get saved for the rounds after.

Also, can F be to fire the volcanons all at once, but we can click fire on each one to fire them seperately? Its useful to fire them all at once, but if I have 100 creeps on the screen, and a lvl 5 bash in the middle, and want the creeps to pass it first so it takes 5 lava to kill each instead of the 8 it would take, meaning more for more creeps later, then I would fire 1 seperately instead of all at once, as I would waste lava.
