That would be weird :) When i say "super mold" i mean a clone that can CONTINUE to Mold even if there is no land under it. This would surely have an impact on gameplay, but i'm not sure yet if it's a positive one. Having it as a server option, like double speed, is the best was to try it out without affecting the default game experience.

As Tom said, we thought about this way back during early development but we didn't feel it was particularly important at the time. CCX gave some great examples of workarounds that would serve the same purpose in Clones. What do you think of the "no morph zone" concept? This could almost be done in the current version by setting a proxy trap to "multi trigger" and it's action would be to activate an action pickup with "force" mode to make the clone Walk. The clone would still perform the user-assigned morph but only for 1 game tick before being forced back to a walker.

I think there needs to be a fail-safe though, that would still waste the mold correct? If you have limited molds on a map it be annoying to accidently waste something like that.

Yeah, it would still cost a Mold using the arrangement of traps i detailed. Probably best to add a new trap, the "no morph zone" trap.
