Hey all... I do very basic ini coding occasionally, and 2D art alot... My favourite games at the moment are just cause 2, Mount and blade: warband, and Skyrim. All have been modded to within an inch of their stability :D Also CnC generals: Zero Hour never gets old... I like a lot of music... Blue October, Cage the Elephant, Muse, Prodigy, Rise Against, MCR... whatever I'm in the mood for really...

Sorry I don't follow your meaning...

In all seriousness maybe stick to real terrorist organisations like 'Al-Qaeda Fighter' and stuff rather than just outright saying 'Muslim'... It doesn't personally offend me, but I think it would be a wise move to be careful.

P.S If that's what you already did then ok, I haven't seen it; I try and avoid modern era servers... guns in this game don't do it for me...

Haven't we got enough WWII stuff all ready? I know that sounds harsh and I appreciate that you are on the top end of that, but it's time people put that period of history in the past in terms of gaming... Everything has already been done, you can't realistically make a new weapon, vehicle, or place to keep the content fresh, so the way I see it; move on.

This is a great mod, but there are a few things I would change, namely the accuracy of enemy ranged troops. They are too good but due to a bug they can't hit you if you crouch. It's a temporary solution, but it feels a bit cheap to exploit the crouch bug when you play... a more 'random' element to their accuracy would be appreciated :) Also, it's probably been asked before, but are you planning on making anything more based on star wars? Star Wars Conquest for the original M&B adds some great effects, but I don't know how hard it would be to port it...

magiguy101 Jan 9 2013, 1:08pm replied:

To promote teamwork in animal side, they should have a scent mark system, with a danger scent that can be applied to any trap without setting it off except trap fire (there should be no way except inspection to tell them apart from normal fires.

Vines around map used as ladders, can be harvested (but remain) to let trapper refill on nets (number of nets depends on net trap upgrade)

Rockfalls of some kind, maybe triggerable by a mammoth interacting with certain boulders (don't want to make those humans too OP)

I hope this helps in some small way, and I'll be sure to have more ideas in the future, best of luck to all of you at mountainwheel :D

Trapper/bushman character: equipped with a short bow, few arrows, a sling, a hatchet, and a net. Builds traps: trap fire provides all cosmetic effects of normal fire :flaming arrows, but do no extra damage; visually impair animals at night, but doesn't let people see better from far away (low light to humans); decloaks enemies though. Deals a lot more damage to enemies that trample it, can be distinguished from a regular fire only under close and calm observation. (wouldn't realize in the middle of combat)
Tripwire: placeable up to a set distance, choose beginning, end and trap to link it to. When moved over, triggers trap, can be seen, but hard to see.
Signal fire. Fire nearby covered by screens (so it cannot be easily seen, but also provides no bonuses whatsoever) with a bough of green leaves suspended above it. When triggered, bough falls in, creating thick white smoke seen from far away.
Bow trap. Short range, inaccurate, but deadly. Can be upgraded to shoot more arrows. One arrow will kill a boar, two a saber tooth, and three a bear. Consumes the bow in the trappers inventory. Hard to use but powerful was the idea. Quite visible so needs to be hidden in foliage.
Net trap: net suspends animal if placed on leafy ground (leaves mean trees, right?) does not work on large game. Uses net in inventory. Upgrades to carry more nets. Net retrievable.
All traps take time to set.
Trapper is stealthed, but fairly useless in a fight against an enemy that can move. Net is throwable, and retrievable, hinders movement if mid range, pins enemy at short range.

So is it animals vs humans? I think that could work nicely... Also, last night I couldn't sleep and my mind wandered to this game. I came up with a few ideas, which are probably terrible or already done but here goes:
Shaman support character can build fires. Friendly units within certain distance of fire gain regen bonus when not under attack (hit in last 10 secs?) obviously helps in darkness to see near the fire, but reduces visibility of all units near it in darkness. Archers within range of fire shoot flaming arrows (fires more slowly, but still higher DPS) Enemies within range of fire are uncloaked (stealth). Fires can be trampled by the larger animals (rhino, bear, mammoth) causing a small amount of damage, or can be put out safely with a water jet from mammoth. Fire goes out after short time (90s?). Fire can be upgraded to make it visibly bigger, have larger effect radius, last longer.

The chaff exploded twice? And it exploded on contact with the ground? (unlike your chaff video...) I like the lasers, but the alarm sounds a bit off... You mentioned being able to dive through lasers, but wouldn't that just destroy any need for the lasers? I think the merc should be told if their laser goes down, (I'm assuming the taser is silent). I don't know much about the multiplayer system itself. If you are planning on having a level system where you unlock new abilities/equipment then diving through lasers could be a late unlock ability, and a laser that tells you when its broken should also be a late ability. I think of this like the powers in assassin's creed brotherhood: You can only choose a couple of powers, but you also get passive perks (two). The morph ability blends you into the crowd, but the templar vision power renders it useless as the pursuer can pick you out from the crowd. They are both late unlocks, but morph comes first. Giving people the ability to dive through lasers at the beginning would lead to no-one using them. Hope this helps :)
