  • Vehicles, Bigger Maps, Mortars, Machine Guns, as Well as Some Random Stuff
  •  

    So Ben is thinking of adding vehicles sooner or later. Here's how I think they should work. There should be two types of maps - standard and vehicle. Vehicle maps would be 5-10 times bigger; the number of players allowed on the server would be multiplied by the same amount. Each side would have four vehicles: a jeep, requiring a driver and having a capacity of three soldiers, another jeep, armed with a machine gun, but unable to transport a mortar, a truck, which could transport nine soldiers at a faster straight speed, but with worse turns, and a light tank, which would need a driver, gunner, and could have four soldiers ride on the back, one of whom could operate a machine gun on the turret. The turret would have a cannon firing a grenade-powered round. They would be destroyed by grenades and mortars, the truck taking two hits, the tank taking four. Each vehicle would respawn after two minutes back at the team spawn. Normal maps would not have vehicles.

    Mortars would be a normal weapon, but come at a heavy price. A player using a mortar would have only a pickaxe, the mortar, and a pistol (the pistol suggestion will be detailed later). Only two mortars could be taken on a team. The mortar would take 1 second to deploy (and take apart for transport, and the elevation (determining the range), and the direction the round would go could be adjusted. It would have unlimited rounds, but require a standard reload time (i.e. semi or SMG reload) between each round fired.
    Since the target would, for the most part, invisible to the user (a mortar fires indirectly), the blast would be twice as powerful as that of a grenade.

    The Machine Gun would be another primary weapon. A machine gun user would not have grenades, instead they would have a pistol. The pistol would have medium accuracy, a fire rate slightly faster than that of the semi. Range would be minimal, and damage would be same as that of the SMG. It would be a last resort weapon. It would take one second to deploy or break apart the machine gun, and take five seconds to reload after its 150-round magazine was gone. It would have 450 rounds total. Power would be the same as the rifle, accuracy would be that of the current SMG, and it would fire 5-6 rounds a second, about twice as fast as the rifle.

    Also, I think that players should regain health in the following manner - one point of health would be regained every three seconds, but only ten health points total could be healed, meaning minor wounds would slowly heal, but major wounds would stay major.

    Criticism is welcome!

    Vehicles would be too laggy and buggy.

    But the other ideas are great.

    I like mortars and vehicles with edits. Your idea of an LMG is terribly OP. Starting with the fact that a 150 round box would weigh a shit ton. Hell, we don't even have magazines with that much.

    Maybe the machine gun would have 50 instead of 150 rounds, maybe 200 total. Remember, it is only firing twice as fast as a rifle, that accuracy is only mediocre, reloads are EXTREMELY time consuming, and that when it needs to be moved, there is one second to take it apart, movement time, and one second of deployment before firing is possible. Two wasted seconds are a lot of time to get killed in.

    Machine guns that have to be deployed should rightly be accompanied by prone.

    Yeah vehicle maps need to be bigger than 512x512, definitely.

    I would say 2-3x the size of a standard map.

    @BlizzardDUCK If they were designed in the same voxel format as the command post/intel/players etc, I think it would be perfectly fine.

    But yeah, simple and needed things first. Like registration and an actual client?

    true what we need is a client! im tired of always having to fucking open up chrome then having to join a server and wait while it downloads! adding a client tkes away just one step! that little step could go so far!plus this registration should be added after the client comes into place! and we should have it able to join a TS server or a IRC for chat or something!

    I think having an ID number to the client would be in a better direction.

    Like and have it start off with ID:1500 and go up from there.

    You can start up Ace of Spades in a windowed mode using dxwnd, which is SOMEWHAT like a client. The only problem is that you can't see the servers.

    For the machine guns, make them have less tracking if there are blocks on both sides of the mount, so if you make a bunker you can either have better defense but smaller firing angle or vice versa. And it would need to be deployed on a wall, so a gunner would have to prepare a quick wall for the gun to use it or make a trench.

    ok here is where squads come in! you have just reached a hile and need heavy artillery! well then your squad leader places down stuff for the the machine gun and you take out you shovel and start making it! this would help a lot if we only limited special stuff only to be made by squad leaders!
