Impossible idea, not even going to consider suggesting it
« on: December 11, 2011, 08:25:19 AM »
Yeah, just wanted to hear your opinion on this one:

(CAUTION: If you are a developer of any kind reading the idea below will likely cause your dreams to consist of random-garbage-sourcecode-mishmash. Also, you cannot hold me responsible for losing your mind thinking about how to implement this. Winners don't wear pants.)

Now what if we had a game that has multiple teams with one commander each. That commander just plays Star Ruler, but the other ones can choose to occupy ships or stations and the like and actually kind of play X3, battling and trading and shit.
While we are at it, lets add a Battlefield-like game for invading planets and ships.

That would be the most AWESOME game I could imagine.

So basically battlefield 2142's Team Commander style thing (when you gave squads / the team objectives and locations to move to and it was up to the squads whether they wanted to follow your orders or not), but with space ships. Its been done to some extent, shame they never continued adding it to new battlefield games.

Its also really impractical on large scale galactic style maps in real time, it would have to be turned based with each battle being fought in the first person style.

As I said:
Practically impossible.

http://www.freeallegiance.org/ This game is very similar to
what you are describing. There are (usually) 2 teams with 1
commander each, the rest of the people play as pilots. Its
and RTS/space combat sim other than constructors, miners and
bases the human players pilot all of the ships. You fly
scouts, interceptors, fighters, bombers, man turrets or even
fly capital ships. Its a lot of fun but its got a pretty
steep learning curve, don't expect to be commanding and
teams until other players actually think you know what you
are doing.

I fly with the same call-sign in that game. I can't really
help anyone out in alleg as I am a voob (someone who never
really stopped sucking) but its tons of fun even if you
aren't good at leading your fire and dog-fighting.

It's an amazing and FREE game so don't feel afraid to
check it out.

Someone has been reading Ender's game of late? XD

Great idea, in fact, but I don't know if it is possible at this scale.
