New Achievement Ideas

Post by Earendel » Mon Jul 04, 2016 10:51 pm

Please post your achievment ideas here. I will join other achievement ideas into this.
You can/should lookup older threads: viewtopic.php?f=80&t=28403 Ideas around Archievements (New and Old) -- ßilk



Here are some play style restrictions or settings that I've enjoyed playing with. This was before achievements were a thing but I think they'd make good achievements because they made for interesting games with and more replay ability.

Tree Hugger:
Complete the game without causing the destruction of any non-dead trees.

Solar Furnace:
Complete the game without crafting any steam engines, or non-electric furnaces. (Hard)

Pew Pew:
Complete the game on a map with a medium or smaller starting area, very high frequency enemy bases, and aggressive enemies without firing a single bullet, rocket, grenade, flame, or mine (including turrets). Laser turrets, Personal Laser defence, Distractor & Destroyer capsules are OK.

Using iron chests instead of wooden chests would be difficult but not impossible.

I don't know how you could play this game without using small power poles. In order to get medium electic poles you need steel and green science. This is technically possible, but I think this is too hard to be a good achievement.

How would you get the technology to unlock solar panels without using a steam engine to supply the power?

Biter-Kill Achievement

Post by MuhmachtdieKuh » Thu Jul 07, 2016 2:51 pm

Hey all,

just got into the game and its amazing. Just one thing: we have achievements for building, researching, comitting suicide with trains, burn trees, sending fish to the moon and whatever.

However, we dont have achievements for killing biters. I would like to see some achievements for that:

- First blood: Kill 100 Biters

- Massacre: Kill 100.000 Biters

- Genocide: Kill 1.000.000 Biters

- Drive-By: Kill a biter with a moving vehicle (driven by the player).

and last but not least:

- Eaten alive: Get killed by biters.

We could also divide between kills made by turrets and towers and kills made by the player.

I know and agree with you if you say that there are more important things to add than more achievements, but I think its a good "sidedeal" for dev's if they are bored sometimes.

What do you guys think about the mentioned ideas?

greetz,
Muh macht die Kuh :ugeek:


/edit: and sry if I posted in the wrong sub-forum or if there is a discussion about this topic already, its my first visit here. :oops:

Achievement: finish the game without using any chest

Post by mophydeen » Thu Jul 07, 2016 11:11 pm

No chests, No wooden, no iron, no steel, no requester, no provider, no storage, no active, NO CHESTS

Will be fun to keep every thing even more balanced.

normally chest can buffer, without it it's more difficult.

BONUS: What about storage tanks??? :D

Storage tanks are needed to store the useless heavy/light oil until you research oil cracking, so playing without them wouldn't be possible

That sounds ghastly, and not just because it ruins the best part of the game - robots

You can run any fluid into a steam engine to get rid of it. *bonus* you can run it through a boiler first and you will get energy from it :)

So bonus points to no storage tanks!

Huh, that's interesting... but why? I'd expect a boiler to explode if you put oil in it.

I joined it with the other topic cause I thought a bit around and I just won't manage "simple" achievements. And I'm sure, forum readers won't read also single threads.

Ground Embargo: Do not lay a single belt.

I intend to do a pure logistic run come 0.15 =D because now that I build my factory around a central belt channel it's all a bit samey and I only need about a hundred logistics bots (until I walk in and they try to deliver 500 belts, 250 miners, 400 rails, and 50 train signals, and collect 1,000 wood).
Money might be the root of all evil, but ignorance is the heart.
