Any ideas on how this game could be accomplished in construct? I'm pretty sure it's possible, and it could help me in my game.
Conway's or the board game?
Also, on a different topic to do wtih RTS movement, is there a way to make objects 'push-out' from each other when stopped, like I've seen in Starcraft 2?
Give each unit an invisible circle base sprite, give that physics, set it to elliptical and reduce the number of steps to 1.
Or use custom movement pushout
I tried that, and found for lots of crowded objects, physics is actually far better at the task - it's made to stack objects, after all.
