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...

Scout class: Spotting. Reveals all nearby enemies to the player and displays them on the minimap (if there is one) for a while (maybe 20 seconds) Also spots enemies who are crouched or in stealth mode. Increased are of effect if the player uses the ability while in mid-air.
If there is a first-person 'zoom' type feature, then it would be quite cool to show the enemies only in the field of your vision but at a much longer range. (Revealed enemies should have a red arrow pointing to their position)

Warrior class: War cry: All nearby friendly warrior class animals (and warrior humans if there is a class like that) gain a 10% attack boost. Does not affect the player who used it. (Possibly affects heavy class animals also)

Hunter class: Crouch/Pounce. Think of the hunter from Left 4 dead 2 if you ever played it. Press the button once to lower into a crouch, which reduces your movement speed to maybe 40%, but with no transparency or stealth aspects, as that just overpowers it. Crouch lasts for as long as you want it to. Next press of the button pounces on the opponent and causes heavy damage. (I'm thinking 2.5x one attack's damage if you hit their front or sides, and 4x damage if you hit their back).
Sixth sense: (call it whatever you want) Nearby human players have a cloud of coloured smoke (team colours, or green/red for friend/enemy) The smoke should not go too high or be too thick and is only visible to the player. Probably about twice the height of the humans. If passive then a very small range, if ability then increased range but decreased movement speed while it's active. I would say... lasts 20 seconds, and recharges in 40 seconds.

Heavy Class: Charge. Same thing as defence classes charge except with increased damage resistance, and maybe does less damage on impact with players, and more damage to structures (if you have destructible buildings) If possible knocks down trees.

In three parts:

I can see the most popular animal being saber tooth by far... Maybe add something more to the rhinoceros and gastornis animals. I don't really see that a scout class being that useful unless you're really big on team tactics... If you made the moving speeds at all realistic (or at least as realistic as you get with prehistoric animals :P) then the saber tooth will be the second fastest animal, and also pretty stealthy considering it's size. Either nerf the tigers or buff the others.

For example: Abilities for the classes.

Stealth class: Crouch/prowl. Animal gets half movement speed but hit boxes and visible size are halved height wise. (Possibly make the animal slightly transparent) Can only be in prowl mode for 15 seconds at a time. 20 second recharge between uses. (Maybe a 'refuelling' type bar that decreases as you use the ability, but starts to increase after you haven't used the ability for 10 seconds. (10 seconds to fill completely from empty.)

Defence class: Charge. Animal charges in a relatively straight line (some control but turns slowly) dealing heavy damage to all players, friendly and not so friendly. Sound of heavy footsteps is heard from quite a long way away. Charges for 10 seconds maximum, charge can be cancelled at any point although there is a short time between cancelling a charge and the momentum of the animal decreasing. Recharge time 40 seconds.

Scout class: High Jump. Fairly obvious. Extra high jump (double height?) so can clear large gaps on some maps. See/jump over tall obstacles, and makes you harder to hit. Either passive ability or can be used every 2-3 seconds. (As you already have the scream ability)

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 :)

Judging by the initial design sketches it's a 'tech node' which gives upgrades... I assume it will be like the strategy center in zero hour...

The smoke should come out of the grenade gradually and the canister left on the ground and still affected by gravity for a couple of minutes. But it's very good for WIP. I was expecting something much less realistic :)

Sorry if this is already mentioned, but if you die in the game, is it permanent or do you respawn? I can imagine games being very short if its a permanent death...

magiguy101 Apr 29 2011, 5:32pm replied:

If this entire game were realistic it would be sh*t. Using the nuclear missile super weapon would destroy most of the map and you would have to wait a couple of decades for things to die down before you could safely build and live there. This is a game where a dozer can make scaffolding appear out of the ground and the thing you decide is wrong is that one of the planes is carrying the wrong sort of payload. Like the title suggests, this mod is for fun and those who like an unrealistic experience, or at least one that wouldn't require you to get permission every time you wanted to attack something.

Agreed. Will they all have two discs? Because if they had one, it would be a way to tell Tron/Rinzler apart from other units. So Tron could be the blue hero unit, and Rinzler the orange hero. I'm not sure what part C.L.U and Jeff Bridges will play though... :P
