QUIZ. What features do you want? UPD 21 Jun

Urban Assault is an old game and its rare blend of FPS and RTS deserves to be seen again. For those of you who want to start/coordinate projects to make an Urban Assault 2, this is a dedicated forum for you!

GoldStar started it! Okay, fair enough, I would cut this off-topic section out and plonk it into a different thread, but I can't do that of course.[/offtopic]

Also, what do you mean exactly by 'UA2'? Do you mean a sequal that is simply a mod of the original UA, or what a theoretical rebuilt UA2 should have in. If its the latter, then maybe you could add new questions about potential gameplay elements? For example, should there be stuff like secondary fire (not including the M.Gun here)? Entirely new unit types, like naval units? Or maybe the ability to upgrade units and hoststations in a manner similar to Supreme Commander 2 perhaps?

If its the former, then just ignore the above.

I can answer some of those questions and many of us will agree.
There will be secondary fire. And maybe tertiary fire! (For example - tank: 1-gun, 2-guided missile, 3-smoke screen, mgun)
I don't think there would be naval units. Question about units exists. You can write more than one letter, you know.
Unit and HS upgrades - of course! Who doesn't want to design his own unit?

Naval Units?
Well, I believe the game can't has naval units, because after The Big Mistake the water is a rarely on planet...

I don't think, that water disappeared. Marine animal went extinct, but not 2/3 of planet surface dried. It would make our atmosphere like venus. There was no water because game engine didn't work with water surfaces. Rivers and lakes would've complicated game mechanics. Nowadays technologies allow us to add water in maps.

You should do a Before/While/After story plot, it could be very interesting!
Concerning factions, keep the same, and maybe add a new one (or 2) after the parasite defeat.
Sub-factions would be too complicated to deal with, and "cross-factioning" isn't good neither (look at BS for example).
You can keep the same units, and maybe add new ones to other facs (indeed Res. has too much units), buildings are good too!
And to deal with naval units, why not, it could bring a new dimension to battles and warfares.
If there's a new engine, work on it 'til you can't got anything further from it ;)

I believe if we made a new faction, this can be of a underground species that develops machines to destroy the SUN

8-) Muahahah :lol: :woah:
