Again ! Awesome game :D
But the AI has bit silly behavior :) it Seems to me it builds a LOT of small towers. And many times ends up bankrupting itself on that account. or provide minimal resistance.
And the grand ram is probably a bit to heavy its at least very hard to make something useful with it currently...Well i failed! :D and steam says i have 64 hours in the game >.<
And there should be bigger tracks! It seems strange that spider legs can carry more than tracks! even if they are "special"
how about like Micro airships with even more primitive weapons like spears,bows and catapults :p
Maybe service airships/landships as well ? ....Mainly airships i guess! But like firetrucks :P with water cannons or medic crew that could board other small ships for example. or a Repair arm on a ship. would add to tactic as well since you would shoot the repair units and sutch or maybe just crew ships to replace dead people on a ship.
Maybe an air cannon that could make ships bump in to other ships?
Harpoon guns so you could prevent ships from escaping and better board them!
And we need bigger sails! they look way to small :P top mounted ones maybe? or even better turn them upside down and place them on the underside, of the ship!.
earthquake bomb(dirt remover = fall damage) bombs :p useful for landships and towers but pointless vs flyers.....hehe or maybe even land torpedoes? :D
Hehe to be fair if you ever need ideas for weapons or features >.< Scotched earth (DOS game) Is an endless classic for weapons and features like parachutes and shields :P and strange silly weapons.
personally i think maybe a research tree over a city capture for new techs would be cool! just my opinion!
Hehe and if you ever wanted to implement a resource system of some kind you should rip of that oil game on steam just replace it with some fancy drill that can dig up coal...would sort of give a reason to build towers as well. Suspendiom should come from harvesting clouds :D
P.S Sorry for the long post!
Heres a potato!
spears and bows are pretty useless, maybe some old fashinoed bliasta, bigger then the rifle but lighter and cheaper. also usese the wooden armor to fire shots XD

I assume you mean a ballista?
Even then that would not do anything against even wood armour if you think about how it works, using rope to launch a giant bolt (although effective vs infantry) would only be able to pierce the hull of really cheap airships and then lose all of the force behind it. (Although i kinda like the idea of 'tribal air nomads' living around isolated areas of the world map)
Also, mini airships have been talked about on three separate occasions, one was also an official developer post
Support modules like ranged fire suppression or paramedic rooms would be cool!
But I don't think repair arms wouldn't work, it would be much easier to just trade the 'spares/repair/whateveritscalled' resource in-between ships.
But i said Micro! :p Just kidding! To be fair i mainly wanted to express the AI behaves silly! :D
Didten really have anything set in stone Just wanted to add some random ideas :)
But i guess that tiny ships would not really have the lift for steel or stone armor anyways?
And i suppose like a repair arm might repair faster or have the ability to rebuild armor?...again just random thoughts :P
I think the 'feral' airships idea is pretty good, like natives with simple floating scaffolding and some madmax inspired ballistic weaponry!
They could be added in in the monster update as more one block ship designs.

good ideas and I already made a quit fleshed out suggestion about firefighting
