Topic: New game idea


Redleg is their anyway to create something similar to a game forum that would require us to buy gear representing various unit types. We would then create user groups to choose "sides" and then war would ensue in a real or imaginary situation. It would boost the economy of the Post exchange and encourage more participation as people try to fund their wars. I don't know how difficult this would be to do, just a suggestion anyways.

Hm........

Sounds a bit complicated..
There are some mods where you can choose a character, and get experience points from posting.
You can advance in level, and increase your health, strenght, stamina etc...
You can buy gear/weapons, and fight other forum members.

I have thought about adding a mod like this, but I haven't found any good ones yet I can modify to a military version, where you can choose to be a sniper instead of archer, infantry instead of knight etc...
(all of them are RPG mods...)

I have found a couple I could modify, but they cost a bit of money, and it will be a lot of work.....

But I may add one like that in the future..

Sounds like a great idea - it probably is hard work but if you could get that done I'm all for it.

Once again just a suggestion, but tell me how hard this would be to do. I know you have more important things to do than entertain us so if it's to hard I'm cool with that. How about getting a map either a real portion of the world or an imagined world. This map would need states/provinces/countries whatever and then their could be a usergroup for each country where they would plot there moves. Each individual that is apart of the group would have military gear such as infantry, artillery, tanks, bombers, fighters, ships, etc. The group would decide where each of the individuals would send their units. Each individual would PM you what they want to do with their units and you would update the map every week or so. This kind of game would be similar to Diplomacy or Panzer General depending on what kind of land plot we would use. The great part of this is it allows people to cooperate like the various leaders in real wars. If the group decides where they best need someone to put their units and that person doesn't put them there then the consequences must be dealt with within the group. You could also have spies and what not. this sounds really exciting but I'll let you tell me how doable this is before I get everyone's hopes up.

The second one is supposed to be more in depth of what I meant in the first.

i like that idea but.....dont u think the fight simulation can just be a free military online game and we can create one soldier for one account and it go around and there can be a attacking and a defensing team so and i can help u with this stuff if u do need help

Ouchhhh.....

The idea is great, but there are no mods like this now.
In order to fix something like that I have to hire a programmer and that cost a LOT of money...
This is a lot of work and I don't have the time (or knowledge) to make something like this now..
Maybe in the future, when this has become one of the leading military forums and sites on the Internet, and I earn a LOT of money..

The only mods that exists now are member vs. member, and computer vs member battles. (one on one)
With options to buy armor, weapons, gear etc...
But all of these are Fantasy/RPG games, and I have to modify them to a military game, with snipers instead of archers, medic for healers, kevlar helmets/vests for armor etc etc....
It's possible to do this, and I may add it later. (if you are interested).
And you do choose if you want to have a character or not.

But it's still a lot of work (and costs a bit of money too...)

One question for clarity: Can you have a big picture put between the gray forum menu section and the actual board area like just above the "Military Forum! Forum Index -> Suggestion Box!" text?
