Well, I really do just need help with basic concepts, but I do expect to do 99% of the overall work.

I'm not asking for consensus, literally just raw ideas. Either way, you're being r*de :/

What hasn't happened to you, Proto?

But, CMA, really, this is as good as it gets in terms of usefulness from us. Anything more is gonna doom ya.

Well in all seriousness you're going to need your own common sense to work out what to do, sure raw ideas can be found a plenty, but when it comes to arguing over what idea is better, you'll have to decide yourself, never try to please everyone. But this it the third time this has been said here. I suspect you got the point already.

IIRC I was the one saying that, but idk. Either way I'm not out to please everyone, just make a good game and learn along the way. Don't worry about it dying in committee, there are none.


Edit: I forgot, I'll also be in need of textures, models and such. I have zero expectations so anything will be a nice surprise. Y'all need to stop worrying so much.

Re: So I'm making a game (Maybe wrong section)

OK, on-topic general question:

Should individual ships be visible, or should they just be little polygons and such with numbers? On-planet units are definitely just going to be counters.

Little polygons and such with numbers. Will probably look much better than anything you or any of us (not including Proto, Tiel, etc) can do.

Re: So I'm making a game (Maybe wrong section)

AHHAHAHAHAHHAHHAHAAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAH

HAH

Nice one.

Honestly, after Error's game that turned into Tiel's game that turned into fuckall's game, I was thinking about throwing my hat into the dev ring. Would've been less "hey guys let's make a game what will the game be" more "this is what we're doing, you do this by then so he can do that."

Luckily, I came to my senses.

These have been great exercises in pretending to be self aware.

He means in the dev section we mock our own noncommittal tendencies and become aware of our epic fail 'skills'.
