When playing RTS i always enjoy the tactical challenges of pushing forward. Securing beachheads, firebases in which to launch swift decisive attacks. My ideal units (USA) would be amphib landing craft, machine gun nests, bradleys, lynx/blackhawk/bell huey helo's (s.a.s. would be awesome) hercules transports available at the airfield to load up paratroopers.The most fun is recreating WW2 style assaults as they envolved on the ground tactics rather than superior tech. For China truck transports for their red guard (20 at a time) and a helo for transport - underslung tank carrier! The GLA could have transports that are jeeps and trucks and cars generated randomly to add to the rag tag nature of their forces. Finally Air launched cruise missiles are needed, cool animation of the wings popping open (stormshadow is currently the best looker) and skimming to target. Also I think a back catalogue of units for the USA are needed, older weaker units than the F22 such as the F15, 16, 14 etc can be cheaper and allows for variety. I think the vastness of the USA war machine needs better representation but with the right costing would mean different tactics. MLRS needs defending whereas a b2 would be ordered in-maybe pay for ordanance not aircraft? will continue at a later date but hope there are some ideas here. Cheers
I don't think there are enough spaces to put all that stuff you mentioned..but I'm not really sure since im a newbie :uhm:
ok u have great ideas, but who is going to make all those units??
you can actually get air-launched cruise missiles. Just take an aurora bombers attack and change the model to that of a tomahawk(or other missile) and pump up its range. Now you now have an aurora cruise missile launcher instead of a bomber.
but then you would have to edit and change the speed and aiming of the cruise missile. The current aurora bomb actually uses a seperate aiming method then the regular rockets in the game, it explains how and why it does this when you look at the weapons.ini. So, changing the weapon that is fired isn't so simple as swapping names for the aurora, there are complications that need to be taken into account such as the bombers traveling speed when it fires, the range and trajectory of the object fired, etc.
thats true, but for just simple modding the base aurora missile locomotors work fine, and can trace targets somewhat
