    Automatic repair by mules

    Post  Brodyaga on Sat Dec 11, 2010 3:34 pm

    It is very useful to RIGHT CLIK on the repare icon in mules meny, so they would automaticly repair averything arround them any time they are not busy gathering resources.
    It is good to keep them arround Hunters so they would keep repairing Hunters while they atack... Spinal Crowlers, for example.

    I found this very useful as well. Mules are gatherers by day and DIY Healbots by night. Very Happy

    Yeah, I actually prefer mules healbots. If you don't mind the small mineral cost they are superior healers.

    I'm not sure what determines how fast a unit is repaired, but I noticed that the probes hitpoints are repaired at a VERY slow rate compared to everything else. Something like 1/20th the speed you normally repair things at, i'm not even exaggerating much. If you ever have a damaged probe, just use a restoration building to top it off or your mules will be tied up for entire minutes.

    Huh, thanks for mentioning this, I never set any repair speeds for any of the Protoss units. This should be fixed in the next patch.
