anyone played Starcraft? im sure most of you have … i think …
Well onto the point though i got this game and its expansion a few days ago (about 2 days before i registered here) and well the game is fun and all but its just not “interactive” enough to be very much fun … overall a shortlived game.
I reccomend something more “interactive” like the battle system Starcraft has… Video example here (its for starcraft 2 which has yet to be released though) its active and yet still a stratagy type game so its not toally “bot like” and actually keeps the player intrested (or so i think it should be …)
and if cliffski needs a more “hands on” example i suppose i can poke around for an extra copy laying around … or just google around for a flash copy of the game (its not full or anything its just a quick preview kinda thing … and its none of those Starcraft Flash Action #1~5)
I just personally think it would be a better game if we could choose what to have the orders as DURING battle … and yes i know it would be ALOT of coding to fix the AI to be harder to prove a challenge for everchanging orders from the player’s team.
still though i think it would be a wonderous change to the game! doing this i honestly think would gain lots of intrest we can build upon it or just refine things a bit though to be more “fitting” to the game of course … its just a raw idea, but i think it can really go places!
i’d also suggest warcraft as a type of battlesystem for this but i dont own it (yet) … although i hear that its got a “level” system going on … such as the more a unit kills the stronger it gets etc. that is going to need looking into for more details though …
lets not forget that theres the possibility of having several different types of “control types” kinda like how Bowmaster Prelude (a flash game) lets you choose how to control your bow and arrow. perhaps we can just add that “interactive battle style” as a type of way to control your ships?
