It's absolutely an abused tactic. I believe this documents the nuke tactic you were talking about: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6umFUQN4kyY&t=2s. The strategy was a key component in taking a room from the best player in the game, something that almost certainly wouldn't have happened if nukes weren't so helpful in resetting safemode. @o4kapuk would you be willing to comment on what you think about this abuse and if anything will be changed? This tactic really hurts combat and the concept of strategy in the game.

RE: White rectangle (bar) top left of screen
I've also experienced this, I think only with the desktop client.
RE: How to detect TOMBSTONES with minerals
You may want to join the discord server https://discord.gg/screeps and ask for help in the #world-help channel. There people can provide in-depth help easily
Anyways to give you a brief answer, you'll want to use FIND_TOMBSTONES instead of FIND_DROPPED_RESOURCES. Then filter tombstones with store.* values matching what resources you want. https://docs.screeps.com/api/#Room.find
RE: Healer not finding creeps?
@key2130 That's right there in the documentation:
The target has to be at adjacent square to the creep.
You need to check if your healer is next to the damaged creep (and move the healer towards the damaged creep if it's away)
RE: Season #4 is open!
@hailhydra The season 4 is over. Season 5 is to be announced later.
RE: Missing top 30 icon from season III on profile page
@trepidimous Thanks for the report, we'll look into it a bit later
While trying to record for a private server, Bot Arena, Screeps Warfare Championship or any other worthwhile desktop-only feature of Screeps there is a black bar above and below the content.
This is because fullscreen is not possible with the desktop client. I think this is considered a technical issue. Please fix / add this feature for people who want to make videos about Screeps outside of MMO and seasonal.
RE: Season #4 is open!
GL and HF to all those participating
Season #4 is open!
Hello everyone, and welcome to Season #4!
In this season, special unarmed caravans randomly appear in crossroad rooms to travel to another crossroad room. Every creep in a caravan initially carries 1 unit of a random commodity and accepts the same commodity. Players are supposed to produce commodities, intercept those caravans and transfer the produced commodities to the correspondent creep to earn season score points. Carriers will drop resources they don’t accept to the ground. They also will explode when damaged or blocked.
Other game changes: every player has 100 CPU, the market is not available, terminal structures can send resources only to your own terminals. Also, there will be no usual portals.
