Bridge?

Post by [K.B.] Napalm Cobra »

Zwzsg's post reminded me of something I meant to ask before the incident of which we shall not speak. Does his bridge work in spring?

For what it was Earth 2150 was quite good, it just, wasn't as fun as TA. I think TA is probablie the most fun iv'e ever had in a game of its type, and probablie the most fun in any game full stop...

How did someone make a bridge? was it one taht botes could go under aswell as units over?

I got that, while a revolutionary step in TA it is unusual. First I had no maps to use it on cus all the waterways where too wide, and then the AI kept building hudnreds fo the things, even on all ground maps, lava alley with hundreds of bridges strewn across it

There being no player AI in spring that shouldn't be a problem.

There are other units with, lets just say "unique", scripts that I would like to see tested in spring as well, such as the alien fake dots unit. Stability (at least compared to in OTA), resource drain, etc.

Yah but we might be getting a skirmish AI eventually once the SY's give us the necessary interface

Are we likely to see actual map-based bridges in Spring, obsoleting zwzsg's bridges? Or is that what Zwzsg asked?

For me, the prerequisites for any such map-bridge would have to be: wide enough to avoid any major pathfinding issues, able to allow units underneath and able for units to consider the path when planning routes. The bridge as being destroyable and rebuildable is a bonus, but not really a necessity...

Map based bridges would be nice, but I don't think they would make Zwzsg's obsolete. A map based bridge is likely to have guards near (or on it, able to build on them might be nice) it, so a custom deployed mobile bridge would still find use. Especially on maps with lots of rivers.

If collision detection in spring was box based and not radius based then we could make many different kinds of bridges, ranging from features to hovercraft (as above) or ships or even just hovering aircraft. Perhaps we could build on aircraft if we made special ones that where large & flat enough
