Soldat II / 2
« on: February 23, 2007, 11:28:29 am »
I've been thinking, what if some day, somehow, from someone (assuming maybe MM will pass the soldat torch on) we got a Soldat 2.¬  Not 2.0, 2.¬  As in a new Soldat.  A sequel.

What would you like to see, or what would be interesting to see?

- I think it would have to be "Soldat II"¬  Roman Numerals FTW.
- Possibly, interactive / destructible environments
- Soldiers made of polys like the environment is
- New musics, the originals were cool.¬  More of the same kinda stuff would be fantastic.

It would definitely be interesting to see this "soldat II" as something slightly different. Not just the same shoot things and they die idea that this soldat has.

Perhaps it could be a more diverse game, where keeping the tower from the other team is actually important. Perhaps even a single-player/co-op concept could be done, one that would require a hell of a lot more strategy, but still has than run-and-gun feel. A little less action, but more excitement.

There will never be any need for a sequel because soldat will be around for years! (and become more popular as well.)

I'm thinking, better support for modded weapons. Maybe you could choose the files you want in the menu, and select mods through an option which changes multiple settings at once.
I think the ragdolls in Soldat are fine. No need to make them out of polys, besides, that would give it a cheesy 80s 3D look.

there was going to be a soldat 2, but mm said it was up to the fans
like 2 years ago or something, some forumers here did decide to get into making soldat 2... it was called the ouden project
it was going to have vehicles and everything, but i think the idea got abandoned

Gotta remember kids, this is just one fella developing the game here. The Soldat we know and play today has been in progress for 5 years come May.

Ever heard of a game called 'Space Empires'? ...theres a game thats been made by one fella. Made 5 versions of the game over the past 12 years. And Operation Flashpoint, a game devised by a pair of Russian brothers (I think), which took them 4 whole years to make. Think they just spent the past 6 years making a sequel actually called Armed Assault, or something like that...

These lonesome projects...they take quite a bit of time they do.

If you put rankings, everyone will play for them. Someone can camp all day and later shout in IRC: "YYA I AM FRIST D:DDDD"

-Should be made in C++
-Should be made with OpenGL + with e.g. FMOD(as already) or SDL.
-Should be platform-independet
-Map structure, chat/admin-protocol and such should be open.
-Some kind of a SDK would be cool.

ok this might be an old topic but what the hell here it goes

Maybe if there was a soldat II then they should make it like a Counter strike version not like the weps and sutch but i think the 3D part should be like CS you know what i mean... And if it would be like that... IT WOULD BE REALLY REALLY POPULAR! lol not like soldat isnt popular now but. :)

3d is... complicated...
I think if there would be a soldat II there should be ranks and like... classes (snipeer gets a rifle, handgun and scope, gunner gets ak, handgun and nades.), more mission oriented and stuff like that

No, It's not reinventing the wheel, it is modifying the wheel with tires that have foot-deep treads.

Why 3D and be like the rest? 2D is one of the things that makes soldat unique.

Why Soldat2? Just keep working on the current one and implement new stuff, all these things could be implemented in the current code and turned on or off as needed by a server host.

Things that could be done:
- Better UI (instead of delphi components make a custom interface framwork).
- Fully scriptable engine.

I've always wanted a 3D-version of the game. Not necessarily 3D-graphics as such, but actual 3D maps. Anyone remember the old Amiga game Cannon Fodder? If they made a game like that for the Amiga like, what was it, like fifteen years ago, then I don't see how it could be hard to remake Soldier in that fashion today. It would add massively to gameplay. Think of the tactical possibilities when you're no longer limited to moving through only two dimensions. Other than that I wouldn't really want to change too much. The reason games vere so original and had so much more depth a decade ago was that they kept it all simple, they were innovative because the ideas evolved from working with simple, straightforward, general principles rather than cramming as much new stuff and features and graphics they could into them. Soldat is highly addictive because of its simplicity, so that element should most definitely be retained.

Not to be pessimistic but I think we could come up with new ideas for hours yet the programmer may not have the time and/or resources to begin developing this stuff...Still, to join in I would say more weapons, no registration fee (probably unlikely) and add noise taunts, you know, when you die press ctrl + whatever to make your soldat scream...oh wait that would become irritating real fast if someone spams that... Oh and more clothes and stuff! Maybe they could give soldats using certain weapons special bonuses e.g. the Barret has the zoom feature (it does now), the Law gives you slight defense from bullets, saw/knife makes you move faster, Mini gun does damage when thrown at an enemy (say if you were caught while reloading), stuff like that.
