Some ideas for orders.

Postby Copperhaired Berserker! » Thu Apr 27, 2006 5:52 pm

How about you have these:

Barrage: That means you can make a area on which your wingmen will fire into, using purple and orange missles, which means you can make a "plananx" of missles for defending and perhaps attacking. It would be very bad on ammo though, and should be used wisely.

Cover: That means your wingmen will stay very close to you, and take the missle hits. Risky but brilliant if it works.

Kamekaze: that means your ships will charge into the enemie's ships, and keep firing. Once again, risky, but will work wonders if it pays off.

And a a suggestion not related to orders: How about a type of repair bots but for AMMO? But it would only fill it up to how much missles was there at the start, and use types of missle that you have in that particularship, so you couldn't get Yatari missles if you didn't have them in the first place. There is my ideas. Critical Mass is really good.

The repair bot to "create" ammo is interesting - it would have to be quite slow, and more expensive than a standard bot, otherwise you would rely on it too much. Yes, I like it!!

I must say, in all honesty, that I don't really think much of "barrage" or "kamikaze". Isn't "cover" kinda the same as using tight spacing?

I would like to see some kind of emergency laser weapon. It would have to be fairly weak (as it would only be used as a last resort to stop you relying on it), fire only in a straight line forward, and be "instantaneous" (it covers the entire sector instantly as a laser would). It could be fuelled by a "power pack" that can be purchased in the same way as an engine or a radar, that gives you x number of shots depending on how many you buy. How many times in early, cheap-ship missions have you been the sole survivor of your squadron and run out of missiles *just* before the starbase or the last factory or whatever was destroyed? :evil: Give it a couple of zaps with your laser to finish it off!

I agree with Copperhaired Berzerker that more formation options would be nice, such as "inverted wedge", and more squadron orders such as "attack this target". Or how about just "STOP F****NG ABOUT AND ATTACK THE F****NG OBJECTIVE!!!" :lol:

BTW, welcome to the forum dude! :D
