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
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
RE: how to use life time?
What shard are you on? Note that shard 3 doesn't allow more than 20 CPU in use there.
"Sync from repository" button not doing anything on click
When trying to re-link my GitHub repo to my Screeps account (it wasn't uploading changes, which is an entirely separate bug) I tried clicking on the sync from repository button but it simply played an animation and stopped. I'm not sure the cause or how to reproduce. It should have taken me to a page where I could link my repo to my account.
RE: Is Screeps ever receiving a Discord?
This post dated well
RE: Can't see rooms in Discord.
This seems to be about a similar issue? https://www.reddit.com/r/discordapp/comments/g7h97i/discord_invite_leads_to_no_text_channels/
I figured out what was wrong. If I type the invite link in the URL bar and press enter, it gives me that "No Text Channels" error page. But if I copy and paste the link in a Discord DM and then click the Join button, it works.
Hope this helps. If it doesn't you can try other options like using a VPN or making a new account. By the way make sure you don't have an adblocker on and you've accepted the server rules if they've been offered.
