Here is a collection of pics that could be used for inpiration to creating a land fortress. I haven't seen anyone make one of these yet, but an idea could be for making ground battles a little more interesting, creating a buildable structure to be served as a fortress/stronghold on land maps. This could be a large building full of turbolasers and turrets that would make it harder for an invading enemy to conquer the map, and allow the owner of the planet to not have to rely on keeping a large number of ground units present for protection.
and another one. If anyone has more pics of land fortress, bunkers, firebases, or ground defense platforms, please feel free to add them to this post.
I really like that last one.
and i love making maps with fortresses, and i might try making a model of a building with rotating turrets when I have the skills to do it, since its a crapload of rigging.
A Skyhook and the Byss Citadel would be good to see and maybe someone could make fortresses for each faction like Galactic Battlegrounds. (They could have a large garrison of units and be hard to destroy. It would make ground battles more interesting) < I just now realized a lot of this is what burntstrobe said.
I really like the pic of the imperial outpost... that thing just looks deadly. It could be cool if this was made, and had an ability to call in for a shuttle to land an ATAT walker. The deployment could be timed so that only 1 ATAT can be delivered at a time, and not available again until after it was destroyed. If something were to be made for the Consortium/Black Sun, perhaps a similar effect as above but using a Rancor, or even a Krayt Dragon (I thought somebody had a working model of one of these... but not sure). Another idea is in Post1 Pic4, that main structure building has some type of huge cannon attached to it. Perhaps the super cannon from the Consortium space station could be used and present on a land map. Again, I have no clue how to code anything or model, just many ideas/suggestions... but I would love to enhance the textures for any of these if they were made...
That last one is a photo of Galaxies, and if it appeals I can use the current free month they're offering to go get some more.
Ya know, Ive made plenty of fortress oriented maps (using the height tool and props to create a fortress) but never got into coding one in or anything. Great idea, something that is often overlooked in many, many mods.
I didn't make it!
I like the idea, even had and idea about making them, the fortress was some kind of Stormtrooper Citadel, that could make elite kinds of troops
