A recipie that if you were to put together on paper sounds good but in reality tends to go together like chili and dark chocolate; a very aquired taste that usually only extreme autists like. You'd think this would be kind of hard to fuck up but usually it's down to the playerbase making the games shit. Fags only have to remember (((The Empires Community))) to know what I am on about.

Despite this there are some decent games in the genre out there. All fags have to do is look at games like Battlezone. There's also the various Battlefield games before they went to shit that toyed around with the Commander idea that are fun. While the original Renegade was not an FPS/RTS Hybrid Renegade X got updated to include a Commander.

So the real question I put to fags is what FPS/RTS Hybrids work and when do we play them?

Does Zombie Master count? I overall liked Zombie Master even if it was kind of simple.

Thoughts on Nuclear Dawn?

I didn't play much and was never a commanderfag myself but I remember enjoying it.

I think what makes these hybrid genre games work is that players are assigned separate roles as seperate genres and depend on each other.

As opposed to a generic FPS where you shoot the other team to win (everyone has the same role).

The (((community))) matters more because you rely on communicating with the other players on your team and them fulfilling their role.

Therefore playing with randoms is a suicide mission.

Also I will now try chili + dark chocolate it seriously sounds pretty good.

Well for one thing it's considered mostly Third Person rather than First Person

Which begs a good question. Why does everyone focus on FPS/RTS hybrids when there's tons of Third Person RTS hybrids? Rise and Fall being an example of one of them which was essentially Age of Empires but you could play as your hero units. Then there's also Men of War. List goes on.

The game is rough as hell, plus people lost their fucking minds when you start out as an infantryman and you get the carrier later in the plot. The shooting is crap and the pathfinding is terrible, but you can switch to controlling individual units on the fly, so it's easily able to be worked around. When you're actually into it, you get 4 ground vehicles with a bunch of selectable weapons, and armor platings with a speed vs health tradeoff. Same with 4 aircraft called mantas. It's surprisingly hard to hit shit with your weapons on the move as a ground vehicle, especially powerful stuff like plasma cannons, so I always had a vehicle with the hitscan laser. Or you can turn on auto-aim but it's stupidly heavy as in your laser practically shoots sideways to hit shit.

The manta racing sim is what I'm calling a mission where you have to catch some guy in a manta. The mantas have a huge acceleration on their controls like a racing sim. I was playing on PC and I found this section so bad I had to get out a controller to complete it.

I have a perverse love for 6-7/10 games, bear this in mind when you decide.

Wish I took screencaps but to give an idea /k/fags made a legit criticism on the game mechanics and approached it as if it was vidya; in particular they complained about how the bleeding worked was bad and drawdistance abuse made a lot of cover worthless. PR fags claimed that the game was hyperrealistic at which point /k/ tore them to shreds later being revealed in a meta discussion that PRfags tried to argue with a real life US Combat Medic and Brit Paramedic on how bleeding worked and lost badly. Then they tried to claim the game was good cause it was unrealistic which just made /k/ tear them apart harder. It was like watching a bunch of retards dig a pit for themselves and each time they tried to dig themselves out of it they just dug themselves deeper.

PRfags essentially made it impossible to invite /k/ to gamenights for a long ass time due to their blind shilling of PR trying to defend the game against a board that is legitimately the last place you want to pick a fight with.

Unvanquished is a free and open source FPS/RTS so might be a good candidate for a game night. Looks like it's come pretty far since the fork from tremulous and porting to a new engine. Aliens seem to be inspired by zerg and alien and humans are your typical space marines.

Really, it's pretty fucking disheartening. But I guess this sorta thing just reinforces the lesson we've all learned coming over to imageboards from the rest of the internet: The only way to be absolutely sure that you're not going to get a cancerous "community" forming is to have your community be decentralized and anonymous so that there's nothing for for "community leaders" to grab hold of the community by and no way for any kind of cult of personality to be formed around any would-be "community leaders."

Conceptually similar, but as Tremulous was faster, Unvanquished has several things that seem to favor AFPS players. Humans have a stamina bar but both humans and aliens can strafe jump, giving aliens insane map control and humans some emergency maneuverability. The other thing that comes to mind is more projectile weapons than Tremulous and faster movement overall. As I understand it, the Daemon engine is a fork of the Quake 4/Doom 3 engine, which has very nice visuals, even for toasters.

>>69996

What do you not like about it? Haven't played that much but it seems hit detection is fine and guns are pretty typical with a damage output advantage given to projectile weapons since they're harder to aim.

Executive Assault is a very rough game but it's fun for a while and you can have multiple players on the same team playing in FPS mode. There is a sequel coming however and that legitimately looks good.

There's also this obscure as fuck game called Shores of Hazeron that had player-controlled empires settling planets, exploring space, and fighting all in first-person. It was free to play for ages, but lately it's a subscription game and I can't justify that price personally. Still, some of you might be autistic enough to do it.

RA2 mod's been stuck in development for 10+ years so who knows what the state of their balancing is. In APB they also had MAD Tanks and Demo Trucks to help with endgame stalemates, the "RTS style" balancing meant things like most infantry not having C4 and being shit against tanks, tanks and antitank weapons having low splash damage against infantry, aircraft having to reload, the basic vehicles building could also be destroyed and the cost was higher without the War Factory. If you lost anything major it kneecapped your team's ability to be effective.


0cf4f2  No.73865

that's really been the issue with these kinda games, the lack of ability to build and rebuild destroyed buildings really limits just what units can be capable of

W3DHUB RELEASES EXPANSION FOR RENEGADE

>You heard right, Interim Apex is now available on the W3Dhub launcher. Interim Apex began its life as the popular Renegade mod Imperial Age, and has since become wholly different and unique experience through the efforts of dblaney and Kaskins. Interim Apex is what I had hoped the original Renegade would be, with its unique approach to the engine that makes you feel as though you really are inhabiting the boots of a soldier on the front lines for Nod or GDI. Featuring whole new maps, well detailed vehicles, expansive new base buildings, naval combat, and even the ability to build your own obstructions and base defenses. I hope you'll be as amazed as I was when I first stepped in game.

>Communication Centers - These buildings allow you to research new technologies or buffs for your entire team that can give you the edge you need to be victorious on the battlefield

>Construction Yard - Just like in the RTS games , the construction yard isn't just for show. While it is still operational, you can rebuild a destroyed building for a hefty fee.

Naval Facility - Many maps feature a naval yard in close proximity to your base. Capture it, and rule the high seas with insurmountable firepower.

>Losing your original base defenses is no longer a death sentence! With enough cash, you can utilize a Sapper or Pioneer to build rudimentary defenses and barricades to keep on the defense, or to hold down checkpoints. Playing support is a vital role for your team which will help mitigate enemy attacks on your journey towards victory.

>Captain massive battleships that feature dozens of guns, all controlled by AI with the option to manually choose targets. There is nothing quite like this in Renegade!

>Utilize a trusty bridge layer to get your team to where it needs to be! They can be used to create shortcuts to the enemy base, ease passage, or to open up routes to valuable tiberium! There are other support vehicles such as the mammoth recovery vehicle, which will help you repair destroyed tank husks, vehicles, and buildings at an incredible speed.

>Tiberium has had years to rapidly mutate organisms, drastically changing the earth's ecosystems. There are many different types of tiberian fauna on some maps; from visceroids to veinhole monsters. Some of the others, you'll just have to get acquainted with yourself. Furthermore, tiberium fields visually grow and deplete over the course of the game

>Interim Apex is a fantastic addition to the W3DHub lineup and provides a unique experience that we hope you'll all enjoy. Download it via the launcher, and join the one and only official Interim Apex server in the community and see what the tiberium age has to offer!

I have no idea how to pick those options or build those defenses. there's also forgotten units and vehicles you can get. however I was expecting tech trees but the "research" is just paying money into a terminal if you have a communication station and I've yet to see a con yard so I don't know if rebuilding your buildings is in. I do know you can repair your vehicles after they've been destroyed.

so far it's pretty neat but I would like to see what imperial age has to offer

>Remember, remember, the fifth of November time when APB had updates? Yeah, sorry about that; the recruitment of a ton of new talent to the scripting team, as well as a bunch of sudden contributions from 2D and 3D artists, mean I have been very backed up with implementing all their work and making sure it… works, in addition to what I normally do. On top of that, my hand in this got delayed further by almost a week due to my computer suffering a PSU failure. But the long wait should be worth it, many bugs and performance issues have been squashed and we have 2 new units to play with. And there is hopefully more to come as well!

They can be but it requires a lot of players to be worthwhile.

APB devs made a GTA clone in the SAGE engine. Don't see how jets wouldn't work.

Planes are already in the game, they just suck ass and there's a buy limit of 4.

Been on steam for a long ass time actually. Tried to get fags to play it but nobody was interested.

20 players on APB official server right now if anyone wants to see the new version.

I am debating whether to join in on BF1918 or APB tonight. I might see you in a bit if fags are still playing.

Did they texture the boats at all?

>The art for the naval units was out-sourced, both visually and technically the Destroyer is a mess and I believe a few people are already looking into updating it substantially (for starters the whole thing needs to be re-unwrapped). I don't know the specifics of the deal but I'd probably not go into business with that individual again, personally, given the fact he delivered half a ship here.

I kek'd a little at this and I am not sure why.

Why did they even add the model then?

>We knew it was going to be an issue, but it came down to putting the Cruiser in the game now, or waiting months for the possibility of a 3D Artist joining the team again. I decided to act and get us the ship now. In the process, I also brought up getting replacements for the rest of the ships, since the Cruiser was crazy detailed compared to the Gunboat/Destroyer. We decided it was for the best to update everything for now, and always have the possibility to go back later.

>The team is very limited on what can be done. We don’t have the team size like we did 10+ years ago, and this was the best way I could find to get the ships to the players (especially the Cruiser).
