Ideas for scavengers

Post by WarTux » 12 Aug 2010, 22:04

A few thoughts on the scavs:
  • Why not allow scav buildings, units, and AI for all unused player slots instead of just player 7? Think of the possibilities- rival scavenger camps and tribes, one scavenger tribe allied with one player and another scavenger tribe allied with another, etc.
  • The current scavenger AI should be improved. It needs to start building something else other than trikes.
  • Why not a "Scavenger Builder," a scavenger version of a truck/combat engineer? That would almost make them their own (playable, with a mod) faction! Of course, they should build really slowly, and take a long time to produce- that way the scavs won't spam them (scavenger truck rush anyone?).

Blah blah blah NTW mod is unbalanced! :P This idea is meant for greater capability of scavengers, and possibly making them their own faction.

The ideas were meant for the current scavenger system, in which the scavs are SUPPOSED to be weak.

If you want to talk about modable scavs, I would make everything scavenger-only (not progressive tech like NTW). Of course, damage from weapons should be less significant, units should be more expensive, take longer to produce, and be stronger, and structures should build slower (if you've ever used the "give all" cheat and built scavenger structures with trucks you know what I mean).

:lol2: Use the "give all" cheat and use a truck to build, say, a scavenger defense tower. It will take some power, then pop up almost instantly. O_o

Of course. It's a scav structure and you have advanced nanotech or something like that...
