Post news RSS Unit Customisation - Weapons

Small update about customising the weapons your units have in UNSC Warfare! From Spartans to ODSTs

Posted by on

Here is a small (speechless, and soundless) video we did that demo's the purchasing of a unit, really quickly and then showing you how simply it is to change weapons on your units! Expect more videos soon... Would you be interested in allowing the customisation of other features of units such as armour etc?

Looks worthy of a try.

How will purchasing infantry work? will you have to purchase each individually or will you buy a squad that you can change the war-gear for each member of the squad or will they all use the same weapons?

Also i think armor customization would be good for certain units such as ODST or Spartan squads, however i think basic infantry would be best to keep them simple, or only slight armor upgrades.

Sorry for the delay - In reply to both your comments. Purchasing units is based off individual units. Each unit is unique. In this game, purchasing 1 unit is literally 1 soldier or vehicle etc. As such upgrades are unique to that soldier, who has a UNSC Service Tag, as well as a name that corresponds! However when a weapon is purchased it is purchased for all units that can use it. For example buying an ODST might cost 1000req but a Battle Rifle might cost 5000req. However once bought, it can be used for free for all ODSTS :)..

As for armour customisation I will definitely look into it as something once we have all the current features done ;D

Maybe you should consider allowing the user to assign the soldiers to a squad (This would allow the user to put certain types of soldiers together so that they can complete different missions or battles although i don't know what the game play is going to turn out like, so i'm unsure if this would work in the type of game you're creating)

But i like how you can buy a certain weapon once however i think this should only work with certain weapons such as pistols, assault rifles etc heavy weaponry such as rocket launchers should be only allowed for the unit you bought it for so people cant spam their units with rocket launchers because it would be un-realistic and overpowered:P

But other than that good work so far and keep it up i cant wait to play this!:) If you ever need anyone to help test the game out im always up for it!

That sounds good - however currently that wouldn't necessarily work with our autoresolve battle system - but it could be a good integration in the future - we have similar ideas in the works.

And it already works like that for units, that if you buy a rocket launcher for ODST all ODSTs can use it. But it wouldn't necessarily be OP ;)
