Espionage mode
« on: July 05, 2007, 01:45:12 pm »
This is a mode of play in Nightfire. It's not a very popular mode, but i have a feeling it might be a nice alternative in Soldat.

Picture a large map with the Alpha and Bravo flags at opposite ends. Instead of capturing each other's flags, you try to capture the yellow flag in a random part of this massive map, then bring it back without getting killed. It would require a few people and good scouting skills to excell in this mode.

Most of the CtF maps could probebly be used (the larger ones, anyway), but a few new Epg maps should be made.

Well, i think that there should be few fixed weapon spawns, set in mapmaker. But besides that, great idea!

Wait, random spot. This is much too random if this is true, and if it is a fixed area, there would have to be tons of areas for it to not be rigged very quickly. If implemented right, F12.

So, the flag would spawn randomely after each score? Kinda unfair if it spawns right outside one teams base.

I dunno, there might just be some to this idea. I'll keep an open eye on the thread, this could be interresting..

Well, the yellow flag spawns could be set easily.

Very nice idea. F12.

This would make for some interesting maps...

More like a cross-breed of CTF and HTF ;)

so it's red vs blue and each team has to get a common flag somewhere in the map to their base?  sounds good to me...  Kinda like that James Bond for N64 game mode...

hey protoman, why don't you turn this into a poll so MM sees the support more clearly?
YES:  2382
NO:  1
(you know there's always that someone)
Can't think of anything original to put here...
