Orders and other bonuses?

Post by Emdek » 02 May 2010, 09:31

I was thinking about some diversifying of game, one of ideas would be giving orders / decorations to commander (player) in cases when he perform very well, for example he didn't lost any unit during mission or campaign, kill enemy in much shorter time than is set by timer etc. These orders could give rewards, like more power (for example 1000) but don't need to.
It would be also nice to have some other small bonuses to find on some campaign maps (oil drums are nice but having only them is boring), some could gave some power or maybe experience for units which found it. Some easter eggs would be also nice, for example in beta mission, in ruins, you could find some special buildings (maybe one labeled Pumpkin Studios? ;-)). It would be also nice to have bigger structures diversity, current building models are just boring and too similar to each other...

Way to get you specialist army. :lecture:
When you start new campaign, and begin with building your base,
you can order your machine-gun vipers, to hold the position,
retreat at heavy damage so it can be trained and recycled.
And you can collect the power the same time.

PS: There is no time limit, and save often (electric cut or something). :augh:

If you go to that much trouble just cheat it is basically what your doing is it not, or should we call it a loop whole when the game doesn't put a timer on a couple missions. :3

Where I've said that I've problems? :-D
I've only said that it might be nice to get some awards (and don't need to be power, medal is enough) when you manage your units so good that any is lost etc.

Well, if you exploit you are cheating, and if you cheat on the first mission "only", it's the same as if you were cheating all the game.

Anyway, on-topic, I think that this wouldn't be too good. I don't have any good arguments (at least yet), but I just don't like the idea too much.

I think that there is nothing wrong with somehow awarding very good performing player.
Like for example these different messages shown in Unreal Tournament when you kill many enemies or kill them in unusual way.
This would be something similar, some more challenge, to make it a bit harder, for example get all medals would give more satisfaction than go through whole campaign on hard level which currently doesn't differ from normal enough to name it harder.

Refreshing topic. ;-)

One small argument for medals, we already have them for multi player games...

When I'm talking about medals I'm not talking about units experience but about awards for player.
