Throne room / Command center, camera and bots remote control

Post by ( Tchey ) » Wed Feb 20, 2013 8:43 pm

Sometimes, i want to see if everything is ok at the other side of my factory. I can ride my car, or jump into a train, or just run. Sure.

What about a command center (CC) ?

- The CC is a fortified bunker and can be placed only once. You can replace it again and again, but there can be only one on the map at a given time.
- From the CC, a new UI is set. From this UI, you cannot control your avatar, but you can control other things on the map.

- These things are :
--- Camera : allow an overview of the area, something like the lamps. You have to place cameras first, of course.
--- Special defence system : allow the control of a unique powerfull warmachine, with laser, flamethrower, rockets, mines and other possibilities. You have t build the warmachine first, of course.
--- Global intel : allow you to set your factories remotly and check every thing you want, like the character can do, but withut moving. Only checking, you cannot pick anything from a chest for example.
--- Satelite strikes : allow the use of a powerfull strike frm the sky, to destroy alien spawner, burn a forest, or kill yourself if you really want to.
--- Maybe some units like in RTS games, so you can send some tanks to a spawner while the warmachine is going to an other one and the satelite is killing some alien boss...

This to give some more taste to the "end game" in freeplay mode, but also in campaign. You start with an pickaxe, then you build factories, then, you... ? Build a Command Center and play from an other point of view !

This almost exactly what we plan to have in the RTS direction, we wanted to call it the throne room :)

It's going somehow into this direction, so I push this now into ready for implementation, even if this might not be implemented before next year.

Perhaps launching a satellite could be a prerequisite for this tech, seems to make sense to me at least :)
