COP Game WIP (2)
Join to comment
 Group admin 
just a second topic. now, if sammy comes back, I would like to suggest some ideas for game mechanics to him. also, if you have ideas for features and units, tell em here. they might not get in the game though, but Sam will just have to try to make everything work first of all. I can't promise anything, only Sammy can. But this is a little news report for the game:

The game's graphics just got a whole lot more ub3r! We have a 3 way team now:

I will be making some of the Tank graphics, both UNE and COP. and also other art bits.

Ian, our leader himself, will be doing Sprite touch ups. He did a fantastic job on that Cerberus. It now has battle scars, bullet impact marks, tread marks, and shading.

Sammy will take them all and program the game. So far, he's done a mighty fine job. the game is coming along fine, we should have LEVELS soon.

Thats all for now. anything to add Sammy? sorry for glory hogging if you think I did that, but I'm just tell them whats going on. I won't spoil plots or nutin.

I am more then happy to take suggestions. In fact, I encourage it. The game, although it is fun to make, is mostly for you. I want YOU to enjoy the game, that's one of the best parts about producing a game. I would also like to thank Gus and Ian. I couldn't do this without them.

Yay! I've already got the prologue done, it's not much right now, but it's daytime here. I can't write well while the sun still yet shines. Now, I'm gonna play the game to see exactly how it's structured and all, because I want to make the story and game mechanics kind of work together.

This plot comes from the mind of one of the greatest writers known to this site, if I may say so. Now, time to move to the old cra<p> computer from 1999 to play the game. No way am I letting some program be put into my laptop. To the basement!

Question: Will there be any space levels?

Question 2: Will there be an option to chose what vehicle you want to use on levels where you use a vehicle?

If I may offer a suggestion, maybe customizable characters?

I was gonna say that! Oh well: I agree 100% on this idea, or maybe just characters - the Admins and Mods? Each with different abilities? Like in Kotor!...I'm getting a bit too far here ain't I?

We normally use gmail chat for such issues.

Space would be an interesting scenario, harder though, because how are you gonna dodge flak feilds when you are only able to go in 2D directions? How the HAL 9000 would you even animate flak feilds? Space would be fun, but a challenge to our dear programmer, if he did it my way. But it doesn't need to be done my way, I write the plot around his capabilities, he designs the missions around what I've given him.

Well, my image of space battles in this game is a little different from what the hame currently is. Think the same style, but instead of top down veiw, you're looking straight ahead, your ship in the middle of the screen. You move around, and fire at oncoming things. Maybe take it a step further and make is a space battle like the one in the Lego Star Wars game, where you're on a path you can move around on, but you don't stop... That would be cool. Plus, since we're already using guns in the game..

This justifies me to ban lazorz and other such theoretical weapons. No shields, no pretty lights, just you, your armor, and your guns. That's what a true space battle is. No sissy shields.

Thus, this would require some pretty advanced graphics, since you'd have shells and missiles going every which way, anti-fighter flak feilds, not to mention the ships themselves.

But that's just how I'd see it.

I'd probably agree with you if I knew what that game was.

The main conflicting points I have with many others is weaponry and technology. Gus and I are realists, I know that. Artillery batteries, flak, missiles, nukes, armor, woot! Lazorz, plasma, phazorz (not you Phaze, if you're reading this), disruptorz, shields, anti-gravity, big glow in the dark engines, boo!

Fo shizzle. When this game comes out, it'll be clear we've made the COP into a real-science thing. People will realize there is no place for Star Wars turbolasers in the world of KEWs and MACs.

THIS IS GUS- Sorry guys, this is the group for the COP's discussion. thats just what we have been doing here. all the gameplay disscussion is here. the group is ONLY for talk about the plot. that way you won't find spoilers. Sammy has been taking all your ideas into careful consideration. There may be a planet nuking minigame in it.

Or the planet nuking will be an actual level. Either way, it's gonna be genocidally morbid and delightfully fun.
