Referring to the all time great STAR WARS! anybody ever play the battlefront 2 series or Star wars empire at war?
Because… if you have… i would LOVE TO see ships have what they call “hard points” if you don’t know, it would mean that the ships have certain spots on it that can be destroyed before the whole ship goes boom. Let’s say the engines. i shoot down them shields and start hitting your engine (which would itself take damage) and soon they go out. meaning you can’t move anywhere until
A.) you die
B.) it’s repaired
Could be for the weapons system as well or shield generator after shields are gone. So you might have one out of four lasers destroyed and it would no longer work. Or if your shields are wiped clean down to the hull, then the “enemy” could target your shield generator and forever disable you from getting shields recharged… until you respawn or somehow incorporate a method to fix it.
I’m not trying to say copy another game or anything silly like that. I think it would be a good idea just because it would give you more of a feel of an actual space ship. You know, you can HEAR the engines going out, or the critical ship systems failing, you can SEE parts on the ship are gone and damaged, and you’d have to adapt to what you have left to use. and i know NOT everyone or maybe nobody would like this idea. But i believe it’d be nicer then just getting hit by lasers and a couple missles knowing your shields go out, knowing your armor is at 10hp then you just. go… boom dead. where is the damage representation? my ship doesn’t get fires, smoke up, or look any different when i’m at almost no health then full health.
Let me know what you think?
