Should flying units be more distinct?

As it stands, flying units function like ground-based units, with the only difference being that they can move through any tile. Flying units still get affected by environmental hazards that are on the ground, such as acid pools and burning forests, and flying units can't occupy the space above a bu...

[Suggestion] It should be possible to pull/push and shield time pods

Playing with the defense much, I noticed that you can't use the Attraction Pulse to pull a time pod to safety, nor can you use the Shield Projector to erect a protective shield around it.

The issue here is one of presentation: the enemies are shown to be falling underground, then you hear the explode sound off-screen, and th...

[Bug/Suggestion] Enemies shouldn't explode if they fall into a pit

I don't know if this is a bug or a deliberate design choice, but this happened to me. I was on a mission with the cataclysm event, which makes several tiles on the map sink away. The enemies I was fighting had the Blast Psion status that made them explode on death and damage any adjacent tiles. I ki...
