new ideas for mods/maps

Post by losbellos »

Hej,
I have been playing this game for a while and well... be honest I am still unable to feel the real possibilties what this game could offer.

I think it would be good if there would be more game mods, or styles.
Like some sort of capture the flag, or fixed cannons which gives advantage to that side whos unit stand in a circle ect.
And there would be an other sort of, that like starting the game with fixed amount units, like 10 pewe, 5 stumpy and 2 fatboy for each player and see what the strategy can do with it.. Or have fixed amount metal and energy and lets say in a 1 min grace period everybody does some units and then toghether plays it. This way the eco wouldnt hold back the players. So on and so on.

I think if there is no such thread so far then we should keep one for ideas.
Thanks

CA: Chicken Tag -- you control a commander and run from the chicken queenlings. If you get caught you get sent to jail and someone needs to come to bail you out.

S44: Supply depots give ammo/rof bonus to troops inside the supply radius as well as re-fill tanks and other large guns.

CA: Deployment mode (might be a bit old) you start with a limited army of your choosing.

There are various chicken defense modes with grace periods and other games with drastically different economies (s44, Kernel Panic, Gundam, just to name the most popular off the top of my head)

There are many creative people here, and there is no apparent shortage of ideas. If you find something lacking, most everything here is open source and community driven so feel free to take some time and make something better. (or learn how to -- which is an equally gratifying experience)

p.s.
There have even been some first/third person shooters, a flight sim, dota-esque games, arcade minigames, and more that have been done on the engine. It just requires a bit* of work.

and by "a bit" I mean hours and hours of sincere unrelenting committed time purely devoted to the birth of your creation.

I'm (well Car, SeanHeron, and I) working on a game that should have a CTF mode, among team death match and other game types.

Funny you should mention this we were just discussing how we would do some of these in lua.

there's an XTA mode where you start of with towers from NOTA which can't shoot but can build etc.

aim is to capture enemy tower(s) with capture bots you build

In lobby, disable all metal producing buildings. Then set startmetal to 10,000 and play.
