Well that was uh... interesting. A story of some poor Ronin troops...
I had something that I found utterly hilarious happen to me, and I felt the extreme urge to share my experience.
So I was playing campaign, as Ronin. I had about 3000 credits, decided "eh what the hell", and loaded up a dropship with about 8 ronin heavies, with various weapons. Decide to call it in right above the enemy cortex, realizing fully that they will probably die. So they drop in, enemy's anti air drone blows the dropship up, one shot. My guys are hurtling through the sky (at great lulz for me), one is just a head and a jetpack. Anyways, they manage to kill the cortex, and then proceed towards the second cortex. I decide, "eh", call in a second dropship with the same cargo on the second cortex's landing area. They don't have an anti air drone.
So, my dropship starts coming down, everything's going great. All of a sudden, my disembodied head-soldier (the one with just a head and a jetpack) comes hurtling from the side of the screen.
Beeline, straight towards the dropship. Slams into it with his face, blood flies everywhere.
The dropship engine on that side EXPLODES, suddenly my dropship is upside down.
It starts doing flips on the ground, while pooping out soldiers (and then rolling over and immediately crushing them). Then, the dropship explodes, spraying metallic death over the landscape.
EVERY SINGLE ONE of my soldiers was killed. Including the disembodied rocketeer :[ I sat there in silence for a solid 5 seconds, bewildered. I then proceeded to laugh so hard my roommate woke up (he's a very deep sleeper). Long story short, I had a good lulz tonight. Thank you Cortex Command. Thank you.

Oh, that's a hilarious one! One out of a million to happen, even in Cortex Command!
I had a smilar but not as funny one once. I fought against 3 AIs, I manage to break into the bunker of one of brains and take it down, sheltering my own brain there. Then I notice one of "Destroy!" indicators moves extremely weird. Like, you know, kinda like shootering and appearing in left and in right corner from time to time. So i decide it's a weird glitch and ignore it. I send out one of my robots for an assault when, suddenly, a limbless brainbot slams into the surface of Whateverthisplanetcalled, transforming into a pile of brain goo and metal scraps. Then I realise that guy was orbiting around the surface of the planet for like several minutes and burst in laughs!

I modified something in the settings to improve frame rate for no reason because I get a great fps anyway. So I modify it and open up zombie cave to try it out. I look over and I wonder why aren't the zombies moving so I sit and wait and then I see the zombies sinking into the ground. I was laughing and then I go and see the others and they are sinking through the rock until they fall out of the world. I was laughing so hard :D until my coalition soldier fell in one and I couldn't get him out XD. I have no clue how I did it but it sure was fun XD.

I think you either changed material's qualities to be like quicksand, or you someway made gravity work weirder... seriously though, what did you change? I'd like to test it out!

I made deltatime 0.05 and for some reason it made it sink XD. I read about it on this forums [] I changed it to the minimum delta time it recommends and it was fixed and I still get more frames per second XD. I have no clue why or how it happened but it was sure funny. I have no idea why it only affected the ai's troops but oh well fun fun fun.

One day in cortex command I was messing around with Me and an AI enemy. No bases just fighting.. I get the enemy bot in the fields of battle with only my Pistol and stickybomb.. I shoot is gun... Move in to finish the job with my stick bomb,,, I said some stupid One liner when I tossed the bomb and watched. Well the AI thought NOPE ♥♥♥♥ THIS GUY RIGHT NOW! It then started to Jetpack at my brain.. Now At this moment I said ♥♥♥♥ this and started trying to run.. Well the ground had other plans 4norasin I fell over and could not get up.. At this point the AI was going to run into me.. I could not help but think if it is stuck to him and he run into me and get it stuck to me too? Well As its head FIRMLY attached to my ♥♥♥.. I then could not control myself and watched as My ♥♥♥ and his head became dust.. #♥♥♥♥ingCortexCommandLogic All this took place over 5-8 seconds after I shot the pistol away.

One time on endless, I dropped a crate full of troops, and just before it started falling a dropship all of a sudden appeared out of nowhere and then the crate landed on it and exploded, and I laughed so much as my troops and their troops started shooting at each other while flying away.
