Summary0015623: Add a confirmation prompt if the player is about to step onto a mine with insufficient trap skill
DescriptionI think about something similar to what is done when erroneously targeting oneself with an AOE weapon here.

I cannot count anymore how often an exo of mine has died because I simply stepped on that frigging mine I was sure I had the sufficient trap skill to traverse unharmed just yesterday.

I see that this will affect difficulty in some way, but to me this is in a good way. And the red mines are not that stealthy after all ;)...

If need be this could be limited to mines that impose enough damage to kill the current exo.

Please note that I do not want to add such a confirmation for tripwires! Since these are supposed to be looked after to avoid in my book (and won't immediately cost you an exo at a misstep).

TLDR: I guess what I mean is this: Luring bots onto mines is fun, having to slow down movement in e.g. already cleared areas to prevent instand exo death is not.

For 1.013:

* Now when you try to step on a Mines tile that would hurt you (due to insufficient trap skill) it will prompt you to confirm much the same way as when you give a firing order that would catch your own exo in the blast.

Thanks :)
