Civilian Casualties?

Post  phlanax on Tue Mar 09, 2010 4:17 am

If the goal of this mod is realisim will there be a sertain amount of civilians you can kill before you lose ( I don't think in the real world you can bomb the H*** out of a city full of civilians and say you did it because you thought tha it was a suspected terrorist hideout).

This sounds like good idea but,
Looking at it from a Scripter's/Mapper's point of view, it sounds like a lot of unnecessary scripting, as each civilian unit (cars, people, buildings) on the map might have to be named and implemented in to a series of scripts.

Not to mention it would get annoying if you end up running over the "dumb" AI control civilians (sometimes they don't run when a tank comes at them).
Or if you're on the verge on winning and lose because one of your unit ends up run over a civilian on the way to reinforce an attack force or such and you just happen to hit that limit.


Another concept could be to spawn a 3rd party faction that attacks you or defends when you hit that limit, but even that involves a lot scripting.

Well that's my two cent. Interested reading other's opinions

On a side note glad to see the public part of the forums somewhat active again.

That's true and it would delay the mod eyeryone can't wait to relese. But if it is possible try to do this in the future and i mean not just 1 civilian and you lose but about 30-50. About the dumb Al thing I thought TAOW will make the Al extremly good.

interesting that you mention this

Snake told me once that there will be a sort of 4th faction, a rebellion faction that will try to sabotage the winning player, so it will be like having a guerrilla group of terrorists that will try to wipe your mighty army out

Itís possible to make civilian AI smarter but that would just mean more AI waypoints on the map and thereís only so much AI the SAGE engine can handle without too much lag.

Those extra AI resource can be used to make your opponent(s) smarter.

Yea lol would be funny and messed up if youíre winning and suddenly your buildings or command vehicles blow up due to that intervention factionís infiltration and lack of base/staging area protection and detection.
