Got a suggestion? READ THIS FIRST!

If you're going to suggest that the game should have new stages/weapons, please don't. It's been brought up plenty of times. If you would like to discuss specific stage or weapon ideas, go ahead. I would like to add more of them to the game eventually, but it will be a while.

I suppose I should go ahead and explain my position on this issue- There are virtually an infinite number of things that could be added to this game, and unfortunately everyone has a different opinion on what should be next. You have to understand that I do not work for Xgen, nor is this game my 'job.' I am an independent game developer. I try to focus on things that are more essential to gameplay and the user experience, such as the friend/ingore lists, and other options.

Also, I still need a break from this game. It's been off/on in development since late 2006, and I'm still tinkering with it smile

Lastly, here are some things you can expect not to see added to the game:

2v2/3v3 team battles. As I've explained to others, this would require a virtual re-write of the entire game engine. Territory WAR was built ground up as a 1v1 battle game. Adding further multiplayer functionality would require a flood of changes, not even counting all the technical aspects of the online portion.

Player vs CPU/ Mission mode. Some day I would eventually like to make a 1-player specific version of the game, where you battle against the CPU on specialized maps. However, this is merely an idea and not something that will be added to this game. I know the original game had Player vs CPU battles, but this game is a bit different- the terrain is now fully dynamic and can change on a turn to turn basis. No longer can the CPU simply rely on a set of basic instructions (move as close as you can, jump gaps along the way, attack when you're done). The CPU would now have to employ a much more human set of logic, involving how to cross newly formed gaps, how to effectively build walls and platforms with strategy, and how to utilize all the new weapons. Suffice it to say, it's a little more than I can manage to take on by myself smile

Health/weapon/item drops. Of course a game like this can never be perfectly balanced, but I feel that random item drops makes it a little too unfair.

Vehicles. This would be a major change to the game mechanics, and would be overkill given the current size of the stages anyway



===As of May 2010, the following is true===

TWO is no longer being updated, as we await the game's sequel.  You are free to continue suggesting things for the future game, however the things you suggest will not make it into the current game, TWO.  Additionally, the following suggestions are well-known:

Map Editor.  Has been suggested in multiple forms but carries a number of issues regarding the playability of user-created maps.

Moderators.  Adding to moderators to the game to stop undesirable chat participants and hackers would introduce a large security risk to the game, and is thus impossible in the current system.  Use the forum's search function if you want more information; there have been many, many topics about this.

Re: Got a suggestion? READ THIS FIRST!

I think the game overall was a success. Most of the things I didn't like about the original release of the game has been fixed. Like Language filter toggle. Whoever suggested that is brilliant.

Re: Got a suggestion? READ THIS FIRST!

Yeah about the Player vs Comp mode.....................I usally just go back to territory war 1 to play me against the comp. Is it possible that you could release a patch for the first game to upgrade weapons?

Re: Got a suggestion? READ THIS FIRST!

Heh, I suppose I'm not particularly fond of those ideas anyway.

Also, Afro, will you let us know when you decide to take a break from the game?

It'd be a shame if you just disappeared like a kidnapped 9 year old. sad

nah, it wouldn't really work. plus the first game didn't support dynamic terrain, so you couldn't use walls and stuff. It's kinda like going back and trying to add super-nintendo functionality to a regular nintendo game smile

when making challenge mode for the current game I considered adding rockets but the challenge aspect is essentially the same as the gun- firing in a straight line, just without instant impact. I suppose there could be a level with far-away targets but again, that would require a complete revamp of the challenge system... and compared to the main game, I don't think people play it that much anyway hmm

Re: Got a suggestion? READ THIS FIRST!

how about just make the servers link? You know how some games are like that, the game is already running and people can join in. It doesnt need a re-write of the whole game. Just the setup lobby, server and turn configs.

Re: Got a suggestion? READ THIS FIRST!

haha.. 'make the servers link?'
I'm not sure I follow. and are you talking about team/clan gameplay?

first off, there's only one server for the game right now. The rooms and lobbies are simply logical divisions for the routing of messages on that one server. So, there's nothing to... "link"

next up, private room size is limited to two players. this is strict limit imposed by the server. If I open the game up for more players per room, that's more leeway for a hacker to jump into a game and mess with options

lastly, no matter what I link or change, it doesn't change the fact that the game was built as 1v1. There are many things the game does that rely on the fact that it's a 1v1 match. When your turn is up, it knows to switch to the opposite player. It knows that you always control the players on your team. It knows that any messages involving your actions must be always sent to one other player. Etc. Trust me, there would be a LOT that needs changed/ updated for the core engine, hunting through 8,000+ lines of code to fix up all the right connection points

Re: Got a suggestion? READ THIS FIRST!

ex:when you're in the regular lobby you should just switch to another lobby instead of logging off and logging on to just switch.

Re: Got a suggestion? READ THIS FIRST!

Shawn (.Afro.Ninja.) isn't very keen on in game mods as they once had mods on stick arena but they were removed because hackers could use the mod powers and cause even more chaos in the lobby.

Note hackers still steal their titles and i do not believe they were removed since in the lobby it still mentions them, though no real mod has been on in a very long time

Re: Got a suggestion? READ THIS FIRST!

This is actually an addictive game and it was a good one too. I hope you could update more about language filters too, because during the lobby you mostly see people cursing.

Re: Got a suggestion? READ THIS FIRST!

Im not sure if this is a suggestion you've heard before, if so then sorry but i was wondering if you could make something so we could find our friends more esily, something that could tell us what room there in or someting. and like chat rooms for clans maybe, and someway of making clans in the game not just outside the game in forums.

and i know this is random but i read the part where you said you didn't want people to tell you to build more levels, but uhm it's ok to suggest ideas for levels.... I think like a city level would be cool, with big buildings and parked cars and like fire hidrens and stuff. yea

RhinestoneCowboy ! BOOM

Yeah me neither although it would be pretty cool to see like 2v2 3v3 tag teambattles would be fun.
BTW I like Rhinestonecowboy's idea for a level called city.

Re: Got a suggestion? READ THIS FIRST!

I was working on some new maps such as the jungle and the city... then i lost them but i gave you a good starting point... sorta.  I aslo had an idea of interactive stuff in the maps suchas the catapult at the castle should be able to fling stuff like grenades and you. The valcano map should have an actaual exsploding valcano. THEN LASTLY MY BEST IDEA YET!!! Capture the Flag TWO style... replie and i'll tell you about it.
