    After discovering that we could share some ideas for towers... I came up with one and call it the Radar Tower. I hope to see some of your opinions!

    This tower is 3 x 3 and is more of a tower that helps and aids all towers within' its range rather than deal damage directly to mobs. Here are the possible stats I have come up with...

    Unlock: 2,000 points
    Cost: 1,500 coins

    Level 1
    Range: 10 blocks
    Rate: N/A
    Increases attack range and attack speed of all towers within range by 10%.

    Upgrade to level 2: 500 coins

    Level 2
    Range: 12 blocks
    Rate: N/A
    Increases attack range and attack speed of all towers within range by 15%.

    Upgrade to level 3: 750 coins

    Level 3
    Range: 15 blocks
    Rate: N/A
    Increases attack range and attack speed of all towers within range by 20%.

    Upgrade to level 4: 1,000 coins

    Level 4
    Range: 20 blocks
    Rate: N/A
    Increases attack range and attack speed of all towers within range by 25%.

    Other possible functions...

    1.) Allow towers within range to detect Cave Spiders.
    2.) Have the Radar Tower be able to mark a mob for death depending on the strength of mob (ex. mark a giant for death over a creeper). Mobs marked for death take increased damage.

    Here are some images to show off the tower design and to get an idea of how to build it... (The first image shows the inside of the tower)

    I think it's a cool idea, but it's not like cave spiders are that hard to kill with a few mage towers. I do however like the idea of making it in general buff the toweres around it with increased damage and attack speeds.

    Nice idea, the pricing sounds good and the way it has been said to work is very different from what is currently available in tower defence. My only concern is that people will be able to make their towers too overpowered with the tower. You have my support for this to be added!

    Meh, I once saw some people using this stupid strategy involving Cave Spiders and a bunch of Regen Potions, which literally makes them invincible, as the Mage's DPS is low compared to the regen. Luckily, this strategy is rarely used.



    Also, nice suggestion! Will the tower's ability stack?

    Wow, I didn't expect to get this much support. So firstly, thanks for that!! :)

    @BalloonBoy2 I've been doing some thinking on the thought... I would say that if it were to stack the effects, then it shouldn't stack any more than by 2 radars. Otherwise it'd buff the towers too much and would make it too OP. I also was thinking that 1 radar tower shouldn't be able to increase the range of another radar tower, because the radar tower would already have a big range in which the towers can fall within at level four.

    my question is would it affect leach towers and would the leach towers charge faster and also would the shockwave do more damage
