Seeing as the forums is slow, I thought another post was in order. What do you guys think of a tower defense star trek mod for a2? I like the idea. Their enough mods out their that it could be easily done. We have complete cardassion, two federation mods, and BIVR for the romulan and klingons. Just add few ships together and add variety of turrets. It wouldn't be winnable, but be more of how long could you last. Also the ai is really good at building turrets. Art of war really inspired me, with the shockwave turrets ect.

Im thinking less of a tech tree and more resource related. You build a mine and you gather resources. You build level 1 turrets which unlocks level two but cost more resources. This continues so forth. Ai on hard would need to cheat majorly though, because if you get enough turrets built, it would be nearly impossible to break through. Anyone know the usage related to STARBASE 34 STARFLEET COMPILATION MOD v1.1. It would be great starting point.

I'm not sure if I understand it... What's the point? What is this 'Tower defense"?

warcraft 3 - stop large numbers of enemies from reaching an objective through the use of towers. Just look up tower defense games. Their fun. The point is to hold off attackers as long as possible with defenses only. No ships just turrets. Then you design a pattern to use on the attackers. I think v shape works best. Best example is flash trek. The first one is a tower defense of sorts.

Artificial Intelligence - Starbase 34 Tutorials

Programming the AI to mass turrets in one place is incredibly, incredibly easy. The game will be incredibly boring though.

I agree it would incredibly easy, but i disagree about being boring. True, standard turrets are boring, but with some work i think it could be fun. You could try to find a gab in the defensive line, use a super weapon to create a breach, mass ships and force your way in ect. Though, it might be more interesting to play turret builders.

@dEjavU:

i do it all the time as well. Especially in art of war.

out of curiosity im going to add few new turrets and test it out.

You should be able to create something like this, with all the necessary scripting etc, using MMM :) . Could turn out quite nice :cool:

I tend to turret like mad when playing, however I also build ships too, so that if there is a breach (or the AI simply isnt dying instantly, or is using arty ships) I can go and deal with it.

I remember once I did a semi CO-OP map, execpt me and the other guy were on opposite teams. Basicly, We set borders and what not and RPd it all out His problem with causing 'incidents' however, was that during the RP, I multi tasked, mined the inf moons like mad, and turned the border into a wall of torpedo turrets JUST out of sight, so if he managed to push past the inital border........ suddenly his ships blow up.

In the end, I had a box of turrets arround his starbase just out of range, and any ship he built would explode.
