I would like to report a bug with creeper world.  If digitalis is covered by anti-creeper, but is still live, cannons will ignore it and target digitalis further away.  I had a cannon on a power zone on map Prospector Zone S100_95 get its health whittled down for this very reason.

I don't think this is intended behavior.

This is indeed intended behavior. Cannon have two targeting modes relevant to this discussion. Creeper or Digitalis.  Set your cannon to target digi and miracles will happen.

What Karsten75 is driving at is that there was still creeper in range of the cannon.  So given its setting to shoot creeper first, it shot at that.  You would have to change it to digitalis to get it to shoot at the stuff underneath itself.

I didn't know you could do set targets. This could be very useful.

Thanks!

Yup, I made heavy use of that ability in Egos:Lemal, especially around the Forge.

Wait 'til you get to the Alpha sector - my map Leapfrog will teach you all about PC targeting!

Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken.
