Default Suggestions

Hello. I've decided to post this thread to people can give REALISTIC ideas and suggestions for Ritual as they make the game.

I'll start:
- Use a similar model/skin system like that of Elite Force to improve compatability. There is quite a large modding community for EF1, and I'd hate to see all the work they've done lost completely.
- In addition to all the regular modes, maybe you could add a Co-op multiplayer, like in RTCW. A mod for EF has this and it is extremely popular, even though it isn't out yet.
- Before you make your own version of the Enterprise E, you should take a look at The Enterprise E Project. It has very promising screenshots.
- Would it be possible to have DM/TDM/CTF maps of the Defiant and/or Deep Space Nine? For reference, see the mod Balance of Power.
- Along with maps, how about including models and skins? Look for skinners called Toonloon, Worf55, The Prophet and Laz Rojas, who have pretty much skinned most of the characters out of the first four series.
- Is it possible, in any Expansion pack(s) you release, to include extra Single Player Storylines? Possibly on DS9/TOS/Enterprise.
- Again, in any XP(s)/online, could you provide us with modding materials, including tutorials?
- What helped to make EF1 enjoyable was the fact that you could play it from two perspectives. Would it be possible to reintroduce this by including AlexandRIA Munro?
- Building on this, after completion of the Single Player Storyline, it would be fun to have a bonus feature where you could play from several people's perspective.

These are strictly suggestions, but they would make my gameplay more enjoyable. Does anyone else have suggestions?

It's nice to be thought of so highly!

You're welcome. Why start from scratch when there's already a great project out there?

I agree with oceanic. It would be awful for such a great project to go down the drain [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img]

I'll still release the MOD for EF(1) [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img], but I will have to stop there unless my maps are better than Rituals! [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img]

I know, I just thought it would be great if they thought it was so good, they use your version and give credit.

By credit, I mean royalties. Cha-ching!

LOL.

Fat chance though, that they will use Robbie's version. They may look at it a little and get some ideas though

Seriously, they might like it. At the very least it could give them some pointers.

Well? Does ANYONE have any moreideas for Ritual? Or shall I assume I've got it in a nutshell, get a swollen head and be pompous, piss off Q and get the world destroyed?

More weapons. I was disapointed that EF did not have weapons such as Klingon Disruptor or federation double pronged phaser rifle. Also make some maps outside. All of EF maps were inside other ships and that was good but make some of EF2 singe player maps on some planets too. Q3TA has nice outdoor enviroment engine.

Make multiplayer more realsitic. Like HRH pointed in another thread, multiplayer now is more like a frag match. Run at lightspeed and shoot somebody with rockets for 30 seconds. Make it much more realistic. Not Q3 but more like MOHAA.

Oh yeah, 4-way CTF would be cool. And also, in multiplayer, when you set the teams (Starfleet, Romulans etc) Have different weapons, Like Phaser = Klingon Disrupter = Romulan Disruptor = Borg Taser

They're called the compression phaser rifles.

The phaser rifle in EF1 isn't a compression. THey just call it that.

I.E. in caretaker, janeway says to grab the compression phaser rifles out and they're the double pronged ones.


Hey Robbie, when are we letting out a preview copy? I got all the setup and launcher stuff ready. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

I don't like the real CPRs. The curves make it too alienesque. The EF one is way more Starfleet-like.

curved coridoors(spelling?).
that was one thing that EF1 was really lacking and needed. just having straight angular coridoors really detracted from the... the... reality? immersion? something like that. it would just be more enjoyable, I think.

Locational damage.
another thing EF1 lacked. it was really frustrating when you shot someone in the head(which is supposed to be a sensitive area to trauma) and it would do no more damage than if you shot them in the foot.
