Hmmmmm...you can call me Mr. thinker. I have been dabling in the art of game development for a while now and I still can't write a single line of code withought getting bored to death. However, I am a fountain of ideas and i can never keep up with them all when managing my Minecraft server. Soooo...
I am ofering up my eternal(and sometimes frustrating to my friends...) stream of ideas to the Carbon Combat dev team. I just need to know what catagorie it would be in, (ie: weapons, styling, campaing mode...ohhhhhhh... another idea...) so that i can somewhat manage my responses. Thanks for this awesome game!

Hey, sorry I havent been on for a while. Ive been thinking...why not have a customizable pallete to customize the color and looks of your car? Maybe you have to be a certain rank, or ghave a certain amount of silver credits. And for a single player mode, make robot cars with a very good AI, get a plot line, put in some characters, and get relationship going(kinda like Tron?). Of course, that would take a whil;e, but would have a good effect on the popularity on this game. Might even improve the SEO.

Singleplayer is another one of those ideas that gets suggested thousands of times and dies down quickley. It would nice to get thought

The problem I would think with single player is the balancing of it. I bet it could be worked out if there was time to do it, but it would be more on testing and balancing instead of actually programming it. For instance, health would be hard to balance since while you want to provoke skill but also let the player battle out dozens of enemies in each level. How about we get some map designers and figure out a script-rich course for a basic campaign level? Or at least storyboard one?

to give a timeframe, also to map makers and CT, i was suggesting this would be implemented starting with a christamss gauntlet event. it could stay integrated in the game afterwards.
 
i am a bit allergic to the idea of adding a "plot" to a single player mode. CC is about skill.
"can you beat 40 ai bots? let's see if you can win against 50!"
this is enough of a story plot to me. i really wouldn't like to see my CC car become the saviour of a damisell in distress.

Plot? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA completely useless in online free games, skip. Well, mostly useless. I've seen a few good plots, but the point is that I doubt that Carbon Combat would be able to...nevermind.
 
For the customizable car color pallet idea, I think it's a pretty nice idea. It reminds me of a decal system for the car a bit but much simpler to use. However if we are to use custom colors we would need to make something to identify which team you are on still, since a good amount of the game is in team based modes.

While I think that a plot would be hard to follow (seeing as cars are non-sentient) I am against it.  Perhaps a bot/drone invasion seceniro type thing for a single player (sounds familiar, not going to mention it though).
 
I think that a colour scheme would be nice.  Perhaps one like how Mars Explorer has?  The custome colour would only show up during Freeplay and DeathMatch, as there are no teams there.

Yeah...Seeing whos on who's team would be hard to tell...Armor already gets in the way of your decal..
Maybe have a blue or red aurora over your car? Idk...

Hahaha...well...obviously some people have had bad expierences with plots...lol. Yeah, it sounds kinda cheesy(and maybe it is), but it would help for SEO and ratings...or it might not. I realize this game is about skill...but so is COD, which has a massive play rating, and plot. Like, why not have a federation of CC cars(whats the official name for them?) , and have diffrent factions warring over land and resources(ie: credits, power stations, force field generators, blah de blah blah blah). Have an option to choose what side(or to create a new faction) you want to be on...and just battle it out on a massive server side 24-7 map. That's the whole idea of capture the flag right? Anyone play paintball? Use some of the many diffrent game ideas from that sport, and there's endless possibilites. What wou7ld be realllllly fun, is to have diffrent car types(but please dont copy Mars Explorer. GTR's Desert is from there). Or, they dont have to be cars at all. YEAH...i'm getting into the groove. Love this game. Just needs a little more popularity.

This isn't COD. This is CC. You just get out there and blow each other up. That's how I see it :P

Oh, yeah forgot to mention Yoshi is the forum di...you know.
 
I get what you are trying to get across on the plot. The problem I see is actually getting it done, because if we mess up the dramatic plot angle it's gonna look really bad. Plus trying to make a plot using the game with the only possible angle being some type of war but also with the fact that the game's forum also doesn't allow me to finish that sentence up there is going to be hard. My only possible angle I can see happening is some completely unmanned war or something similar. Also, stay away from the MMO style plot. Those games are already bad enough with it, we don't want to spread it around.
 
Now, I was wondering if anyone had ideas for actual level designs for a campaign mission. This can be an entire mission, or just a cool obstacle idea. I am trying to get people into this because I think at this point the community is so used to dealing with the campaign idea dying out that they just ignore it until it goes away, which ironically is the reason it dies out nowadays. Anyone?

@jdc:
  read this, is pretty simlar to what you are describing:
 
Without repeating all the issues the CC community seems to have with fear of all out wars, just read this discussion fyi. It's not a matter of it "not going to happen" but "when will it be the right time"=> which imho is after a thoughtful review of mod powers, potential garrison leaders' mod powers over his faction and a report system being integrated fully into the game. so all i can say atm is, i also want this to happen (really really really i want it sooo bad), but patience is a virtue and CT is 1 person.
 
@fca:
the gauntlet/bot assault/campaign mode has been proposed over and over. i'm pretty sure it will happen at some point. In fact the reason why the chrismass gauntlet was proposed in june, was to give plenty time for it's developement. and i havent' given up on the idea!!

All right lagging, I see where you are going with this. Let's wait for the Christmas gauntlet to either be finish/flop, and then we see what is going on with it.

...i'm not saying that idle waiting is good either.
 
if you have, or anyone else has any idea on how to make a gauntlet/campaign/bot assault happen, please do say it, or question already present ideas , or criticise them, or open a new discussion specifically about it.
 
same for the factions/guilds/paintball teams ideas.
 
My issue is specifically with this thread, which feels"non topic centered" but "jdc centered", throwing in the same pot so many things, that is basically rendering impossible any in-depth discussion about any of the presented ideas.
 
i'd suggest we try sticking to the "set a topic=> discuss it" format, else me, you, zangsta, u2m, all of us could make a topic in which they discuss their own ideas with the others, but it won't be focussed enough in order to help CT.

Ah, so we specify what idea we actually want to discuss on one thread so we can focus more? Fair enough.
