I am thinking of doing a feature post in the form of a video and I need your input!

Posted by Smoth on Jun 21st, 2010


I have been looking at what many of my contemporaries are doing on the web here and I was thinking, maybe some of you would like to see what is going on with gundam rts or at least what has been going on with it for the past year now. INBEFORE OMG NO WAI. I knowrite? Anyway, point is I have been thinking that pictures are all well and good but video is moving pictures and hey, why not have more of a good thing? I certainly like that!

So here is what I want to know, I will only do this if I get more than 3 comments on the idea as it will be very time consuming to do. Would you like the following:

A) Once every 2 weeks I give you guys a sort of video blog answering Gundam RTS questions and perhaps talking about what is going on with GRTS? If you are in favor of this say yes but also ask some questions that you may be curious about.

B) Just a video showing me playing gundam rts and showing you guys some of the new stuff?

C) No shut up smoth, keep working I want the next version!

D) Gundam Tactica, every so often I will record a video of a gundam match and explain the finer mechanics of what the player is doing. So you guys can get an idea of how to play gundam rts and perhaps get more skillful? (bear in mind I need you guys to get on the servers and PLAY for this one)

So that is my news post for this week, oh, almost forgot. your request has been answered, I expanded the map river valley to a 32x32 from a 20x20. That is over 1.5 times larger fellas. I am still working on it as this map is a colossal undertaking but I want you to know, I am listening.

I like idea D) but also idea B) ;-)

I like B and A.

Example questions:
What game modes can we expect?
-Any variations on standard RTS gameplay?
-Will there be single player missions?
-Do you accept custom made maps by the community? / do you have guidelines for that?
- Will there be space maps?

On the tactic side:
- How important are the air units the game?

You don't have to shut up, but people can learn to be patient.

It is a long wait, that is why you need to make a release and stop making damn videos and redoing good models for better ones. More new content.

Personally, I just like text explaining the features, changes, and updates. Pics to show new units/unit updates would be nice.

I like B and D. Making a video blog every two weeks sounds like a lot of work. Either ways just wanted to say: Awesome game!!! :D

B and D sound cool, A sounds like it would be extra work that isn't really needed.
