Idea for possible spin off releases
« on: September 08, 2003, 03:00:04 am »

Firstly, I would like to say that im pretty new to forums in general and that typicaly I will simply lurk around reading other peoples posts. However, toys for bob has inspired to finally get involved and post somthing. I really love the starcontrol2 and I have since I was a child. So, I applogize if I offend anyone. I have fully read the FAQ, and I hope to add intelligent comments to this forum.

Now that that is out of the way. I was just playing a melee game with a zoq-fot-pik against my thradash when I realized everytime I flamed around him in a semi himispherical pattern (as to leave flames about and around him so he he is forced to hit them) that he would turn his ship for no reason to his opposte side. He would not thrust away, he simply turned around. So, it got me thinking. Wouldnt it be kinda cool if Starcontrol ships had quadernts Somthing simple like fwd aft port and stbd? If too much damage has been received on a certain quadernt then the ship will explode. Also, it kinda would make VUX limpets odd. Thrusting to one side might be faster then thrusting to the other depending on what quadernt it hit. .

maybe u could have different quadrens for each ship. a quadrant could control thrust, turning, crew, battery, weapon, and speacial. so the more damage to a cerain quadrant, the function of the quadrant would be affected.

See the thread about melee ideas for the Frenzy fork... a more elaborate version of this idea is being considered.
