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.

I thought he had! >_>
EnEsCe (from what I understand) was working on the netcode/net stuff, and FLAB had a hand in that somewhere....

Just another soul to burn.

- Preserving the simplicity and arcade style, the graphics would be more pixel art as a Metal Slug game
- Cross-platform support
- Registration free
Oh yeah, that'd be cool.

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. :)

As popular as Tribes, perhaps?

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.




the sig rules are silly. disable sigs!

Now, the scriptable engine is something I support 100%.

that's true sold at is an good game because is 2d and it do more funny need repair problems and other things or put other things to more entertainment

If they ever will be "Soldat 2" there is only two things what I want:

- No lag anymore
- No bugs anymore

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.
