i always had an idea but did not know how to make it. a FPS mod were you would hit a button, and on the selected squad/unit, it would turn into an FPS were you could move around freely useing WASD keys and/or the arrow keyes (and fire the weapon with the mouse buttons). also, you can choose to detach a unit from a squad, or take the whole squad with you. can someone please tell me if it is even possible. and plz make it! :P

a) Demanding or requesting mods will get you nowhere at all. b) What you envision is one hellish amount of recoding so I'd say it's not possible. Or it might be, but no one would be willing to do it. The only way I can think of, would be to create abilities, which move the unit with their hot keys being wasd.

Its impossible. The RTS engine is completely diferant to the FPS engine. Diferent variables would need to be calculated to make it work for FPS and would probably mean rewighting a hell of alota code. it wouldn't be possible to flick a switch and change from FPS to RTS. sorry :/

Well the FPS/RTS hybrid is integrated into the game play of RTSes like Savage 2. But yeah, impossible unless you rewrite the engine code, and they only ones who can do that are the Relic devs or people who own the source code other than Relic.

....eh?

Haven't any of you played Half-Life? Both 1 and 2 have multiple RTS/FPS hybrid mods - one in particular is very famous; Natural Selection. Hell, first game that even did this was Dungeon Keeper way, way, way back in the day.

There's even a modding group that has turned Warcraft 3 into a FPS - it's awful, but it's been done.

Yeah, they use a similar method to the one I described I believe. The only functional RTS/FPS hybrid I know of is the freeware TA SPRING.

look, unless you yourself actually MAKE video games, i doubt anybody will have the experience or ability to do something like that, as it is pretty obvious that there are no codes for such a thing to be possible in the games engine, so unless you are some kind of actual video game prgrammer, it is going to be impossible, though I agree it would be badass, actually, that would be kind of liek star wars battlefront, I think a 40k version of that would be awesome, course, fluff breaking would be HUGE, but it's a game, all the games break the fluff, even the TT game does, if people could look apst that, it would be AWESOME:D
