So I thought… if planetwars ain’t coming to s44 yet… why wait?
My idea for a “campaign” (which I don’t really know if it’s the right name for what I intend to achieve, hence the “”) is something like this:
- We need an europe tactical map that has enough “territories” for there to be an acceptable separation between every participating player at the start of the game.
I was looking for such a map yesterday but I didn’t get any luck with that. What I’ve also thought is we can make up the tactical map… since we are going to fight battles we don’t really know the outcome of, why not just make up everything?
- There must be bonuses from capturing certain territories…
I mean, let’s say I’m free to attack territory A and B, but A has tank factories, and B has an airport. So I choose between those two bonuses. And if I lose such territories… I stop being able to make tanks, or calling for air support.
On good thought, such a bonus as tanks, should be very close if not at the very starting territory of each player… because fighting tanks with infantry is so hard… Believe me, I have done it… many times…
- Finally an opportunity to use those “Low command” “Very High Command” options, we just adjust what kind of battle is it according to the value of each territory… My idea is that territories with a bonus are always fought with a “normal command”, and territores with no bonus with lower command, and territories close to a player’s starting territory with higher command whether they have a bonus or not, because it’s closer to very important territory, as a capital can be.
My brain stopped working there… point 4 was to setup player turns, etc.
But I don’t know… give each player a movement? That would make up for a very nice and slow “capturing and re-capturing game” which would never end. Unless of course… there was more than 2 players, let’s say there are 6 players or more, if we put them together in “allies” and “axis”, if every player gets one “Move” when it’s his side’s turn, there could be some kind of flow, but I’m not yet done with thinking that part.
What do you guys think? Do you like it JAL?
