So I've seen this come up a few times, and I wondered something:

1) Say I build a crate the size of the RC. Does that cost the same 1BP as if I made a normal-sized one?

2) Likewise, suppose I made a tree the size of a barricade. Would it still cost the same, and would I wait for the same time for timer to end?

3) So what if I made a tube the size of a barricade. Would the damage and/or damage range be extended? Likewise, if I made a tiny tiny tube, would the damage amount and range be the same as normal tube?
Now you see me...now you don't...headshot

1) This need to be tested. There are three options:
a) Nothing will change
b) BP+buildtime will change (preffered)
c)  BP+buildtime+health will change

2 + 3) Only some passive building will be possible build in different sizes (but is good suggestion for aliens).

Ok thanks for the heads up. I really want buildtime to change. It takes to long when you're the only ganger and you need to build and by the time the buildtime is done you're dead.

But, could there be an option to make all buildables resizable, seeing as servers will be "very changable".

What about a way to make the players smaller or bigger? Have players run around like grasshoppers, gravity is the same but they weigh less so they float more.  :D
(But within reason and only on special servers)

That depends if the game will take explosions or not. 1.1 never had explosive barbs.

Therefore, Tremulous 2 might have the future (or might not, since it isn't developed by a corporations, depends on what Global Government will decide), but Unvarnished doesn't.

Well there's a reason why 1.1 has been reduced to a bunch of triggerbotters on the AA server.
(I was one of them :) )
Explosives really help with towers of noob-turrets.
