Title: The Official Suggestions Sticky - Read before posting!
Post by: Nfsjunkie91 on November 05, 2006, 12:01:23 am
The Official Suggestions Sticky

The Don't-Suggest List
(http://img241.imageshack.us/img241/766/emotsirenta8.gif)NEW WEAPONS(http://img241.imageshack.us/img241/766/emotsirenta8.gif) This would invite even more weapon-balance issues, disrupt Soldat's file layout, mess up functionality of old mods, etc. Besides, you can already edit weapons.ini ;)

Map Features Weapon spawns, new power-ups, new waypoint coding, etc. (Marcinkowski himself declared that just about any suggestions regarding new map features will be ignored unless he specifically announces that the map format shall be changed, which he most likely shall not anymore due to the time-absorbing Link-Dead (http://mm.soldat.pl/) project)

Map Format Destructible terrain, liquids, (http://img241.imageshack.us/img241/766/emotsirenta8.gif)VEHICLES(http://img241.imageshack.us/img241/766/emotsirenta8.gif), mobile polygons (these would require a gigantic map format change as already covered above, they would be huge changes to gameplay which would not only disgust many current players but probably result in more glitches, etc.)

Player Experience A Counter-Strike style money system, soldier classes, alternate weapon functions, bleeding to death, a level-like experience system (None of these will ever be implemented because any would forever ruin the arcadey, nostalgic simplicity of Soldat which makes it so popular, aside from the massive coding time)

Climbing as an official gamemode (just too much of a hassle, really, and doesn't count as a true Soldat gamemode for violence-loving masses ;))

Genders, explosive weapons (Uh... hello? :P Kinda obvious why, eh?)
Imagine the /secret abuse. >_>

Console Porting Soldat will never be programmed for portable consoles/machines, or probably even regular gaming consoles (Michal doesn't have the money nor the time to do so, and even then gameplay probably would flop on such systems, though if you want to play Soldat on Linux, feel free to help with the Soldat Wine (http://appdb.winehq.org/appview.php?iVersionId=4662) project.)

Dynamic weapon limitation (in a match on a server, # of a particular weapon limited based on how many players are using the weapon, etc.); this is in the latest server version, and is possible through scripting.

Limited Ammo, since it's already been suggested Here (http://forums.soldat.pl/index.php?topic=16123.0), Here (http://forums.soldat.pl/index.php?topic=22218.0) and Here (http://forums.soldat.pl/index.php?topic=26336.0).

Limited ammo as an option....you definately missed that. I've seen it requested many times, and I reckon its needed....It will certainly stop people spraying!....

Dynamic weapon limitation (that is, # of a particular weapon limited on a server based on how many are using the weapon, etc.; even if everyone approved, this is not possible due to coding restrictions)
This should not be in the list, for top secret international private information schoolgirl secret agreements....

You can still cheat the law reload anyway (barret too, for that matter), so why not put it back in?

Most of the posts say that it's good but that it has already been achieved (or is achievable) through server-scripting, and therefore would be unnecessary to add to Soldat as an official gamemode

I don't see a problem with specators being able to view health and ammo. If you play smart and have good eyesight, you'll know when a soldat needs to pick up health (look if they're bleeding). So people being able to talk in 'codes' shouldn't be a problem...and I mean, who would do that anyways? Lol...or you can just mute them. ;D

Title: Re: The Official Suggestions Sticky - Read before posting!
Post by: Jopez on September 23, 2007, 09:58:27 am
I'm not sure where this should be put, but I'll write it here, because it's mainly a suggestion.

The suggestion: Make a proper version of soldat and then just let it be.

This version has been the most laggy ever and it's really annoying. Somehow mainly the polish and other not-so-good internet people are having predominance. The last lag-fix was actually more like lag-creator. Of course it works, but the way it works is like "you shoot, it is not making damage, the lagger shoots and every bullet makes damage". One out of three of my M79 bullets or grenades are actually making damage.

There's always lag, but you don't get so irritated if you know you're playing against better players than you. I wouldn't care, if there wasn't any so called "noob" clans that spray and worm all the time. Also, they simply won't die. Unfortunately, you can't always play a match against a good clan or a clan from your own country. E.g. I like to play against AE or Ap, and even though they win every time, those are the best matches.

Polybugs are not so awkward, but they will be also included to this because I'm giving feedback essentially from the newest version. Can I ask what the apple was that "most of the maps fixed and improved by Keron Cyst"? The maps are now the worst ever, just like the lag. I mean, there has never been so many polybugs. I don't care about them myself, but if there was a league playoff match or something and you jam into a polybug and the other team gets a cap that concludes the whole match?

You could find examples just by adding to a gather or playing a cw against a "laggy" clan. Even the most honoured and the most skilled players have said this is the laggiest version ever.

This great game is ruined with its internetcode.

Luv,
Jopez.

PS. There's nothing personal in this post and I really respect your work. (MM, Keron Cyst & Betatesters)

but then again if you think about it, no one really wants to deal with the people who sit in a corner and just fire of their shotguns rapidly to spray bullets on all the other players b/c that takes away from the multiplayer fun

how about hold the point so two teams have to hold a point on the map. And every 5 secs the team, who is holding it, gets 1 point. the fist team to 50 or whatever wins!
its just like Hold the point in Mobile Forces. if you have herd of it.

Wow, pretty much don't suggest anything that would make soldat cooler. Oh, well, I hope there will be destructable terrains, vehicles and movable polys in Soldat 2. Limited ammo is a good idea if you could make it as an option.

TradeMAAK... could you please read the ****ing rules before spamming here?

New map features: weapon spawns, animated graphics in maps, power-ups, improvements in bot-behavior/waypoints, etc. (Marcinkowski himself declared that just about any suggestions regarding new map features will be ignored unless he specifically announces that the map format shall be changed, which he most likely shall not anymore due to the time-absorbing Crimson Glory project)[sic]

Destructible terrain, liquids, (http://img241.imageshack.us/img241/766/emotsirenta8.gif)VEHICLES(http://img241.imageshack.us/img241/766/emotsirenta8.gif), mobile polygons (these would require a gigantic map format change as already covered above, they would be huge changes to gameplay which would disgust many players, even more glitches would result from them, etc.)

Post by: The Bone Collector on March 11, 2008, 10:10:20 am
I know I mentioned it back in page one like... last year, but if this could be done with scripting, I want to see it.

Limited Ammo.
People are just flaming the idea without mentioning the reasons why it sucks.

But, I think this could be used as a feature to turn on/off. It would change the way people play soldat. No, it wouldn't limit spraying, because you will always get some idiot spraying the absolute crap out of something, and running out of ammo. While limited ammo could ruin some parts of the game, it could benefit others.
Realistic would be changed. Though you don't really live all that long in most matches, if you run out of ammo... you have to drop your gun and pick up another.
Scriptage? or worth putting in the game as a on/off feature?

Okay mate, two issues here. For one thing, so many ideas are being put up, and most of'em are halfassed mindless ideas that aren't remotely suited for soldat, and so while they may be funny to imagine, it's just not worth the time and effort. Secondly, the new version will be out when it's ready, unless you'd rather have a rushed one filled with bugs.

I understand what your saying there, but if you take the time to read them people can use their minds and implement them into a proper and more original idea. The next version of soldat shouldn't be rushed but shouldn't take so long to construct. In my opinion, they should release a new BETA soon or else people are going to get impatient. The new BETA could be like a sneak preview of the next soldat, if you know what I mean.

The following suggestion has already been implemented:

Team indicators for kill console (http://forums.soldat.pl/index.php?topic=4822.20); Atomic Hype
The colour of the name of the person killed shows the team he is in when in a team game. (eg: if "Major" is in red team, his name is shown as red. If "Boogie Man" is in blue team, his name is shown as blue. This goes both ways for killer and victim.) In DMs, the colour shown would be that of the person's shirt.

That suggestion can be struck out since its already implemented into Soldat.

There has been discussion about that somewhere, but not everyone liked this feature (that includes me). Soldat isn't an RTS, and all other shooters are perfectly fine without those indicators.
An average player can already see if his teammate needs help, and by how long has he been shooting you can assume how much ammo he has.

So you can see every single teammate at the same time, WHILE accurately seeing what gun they have, remembering how much ammo that gun has AND how long they have been shooting? You must be God.

An account system, a Counter-Strike style money system, soldier classes, alternate weapon functions, death from existing wounds, a level-like experience system (None of these will ever be implemented because any would forever ruin the arcadey, nostalgic simplicity of Soldat which makes it so popular, aside from the massive coding time)

Gotcha!

Ohh yeah, thanks for bringing that up. I'll just go ahead and retcon that now.

Chat Suggestion (http://forums.soldat.pl/index.php?topic=28441.0); STM1993
Can be removed since the lobby chat is going to be removed for the portal.

Team indicators for kill console (http://forums.soldat.pl/index.php?topic=4822.20); Atomic Hype
This is already implemented. Goodness, I mentioned it in my previous post here.

Option - "Automaticly take screenshot of final score"
Well it could be taken only when map is finished through time or score. When we restart map, screenshot is taken too. A lot of useless garbage in Screens folder... It could be a little delay for screenshot taking too, maybe one second. Now screen is taken instantly and sometimes scoreboard will not show so fast and we have screenshot without statistics... Annoying.

Player options.
There could be checks for weapons which we want to grab from the flor. Sometimes we want to take some weapon, but in this place lies another which we don't wan't and we take it. We lose time.

I'm calling bulls**t on the "no new weapons" rule.

Quote
This would invite even more weapon-balance issues
Not a problem. The weapons are more balanced then ever, and the beta 1.5.1 weapons.ini is so popular it's been put into every major gather and clan war server rental system. It's even considered for leagues. It's the perfect opportunity to add new weapons. By the rule's reasoning we shouldn't add new features to the game because they would invite even more bugs. That's just ass-backwards thinking.

disrupt Soldat's file layout
By adding some GFX and two SFX? I think the devs knows in what folders to put them.

Quote
mess up functionality of old mods
No. Old mods would work fine. Any new weapon would be unaffected by old mods. It's the expected and preferable result.

Quote
etc.
I disagree.

Quote
Besides, you can already edit weapons.ini
Irrelevant. The idea is to add weapons, not edit existing ones.


Find some better excuses, please.

Can't have a Predator knockoff without Jesse Ventura's Minigun I'm afraid.

only weapon that imho would be interesting to add would be a grappling hook with the same kind of functionality like the one in quake1 ctf(ie if you grapple a enemy they would take damage and you would be pulled against him as well as normal grappling against walls). would also speed up gameplay and create possibilitys for interesting map layouts.

Yeah I want to be able to add extra guns, alot. I've asked for this before and was shot down, hard.

Can we have more access to the weapons in the .ini? Cus what there is to work with is pathetic. I dont want the gun in slot one to always shoot 2 fricken bullets, or that the weapon in slot 9 HAS to be a semi....

Should definitely try implementing voice chat. Idk if adding it would cause u to recreate the whole game or anything, but if it wouldn't you should definitely add it. It could be used just like chat, meaning u could voice chat to everyone, or just ur teammates. And u could add a function that would allow players to mute whoever they see fit to avoid all of the rly annoying chatter boxes as u could probably imagine. I feel something like this wouldn't put too much strain on the game with causing bugs or affecting other aspects of the game and causing more problems, so i think this change could be very possible.
