Server Ideas (Anything Is Possible!)

Postby Siсiliаn Ноundd » Sun Feb 23, 2014 5:31 pm

Now I am asking if anyone has any good cool ideas for servers. Remember anything is possible. There really is no more limitations on what we can do to servers. Please do not be shy speak up if you have any ideas! (:

Example:

  • Game Mode: 1v1 - 2v2v2 - 2v2 - 3v3 - Diplo - Custom - Default Or All-In-One.
  • Score Modes
  • City's: 25-200
  • Population: 25-200
  • City Placement: Random, Default, Equalized.
  • Deification Possible or Not Possible At What Point In The Game?
  • Radar Sharing: Automatic To Alliance, Choose Freely, or Have It Only Available At A Certain Point Of The Game.
  • Cease Fire: Auto, Optional, or Have It Only Available At A Certain Point Of The Game.
  • Variable Enabled: Unlimited Credits or Normal U.C
  • YOU CAN RESTRICT TERRITORY Not Just For 1v1.
  • Forbid Units From Being Placed.
  • You Can Add Mods To The Server.

And Many, Many, Many More Endless Options To Choose From People!

Diplo with only silo, radar and sub units enabled. Variable units for more nukes + totally random cities with big pop. I'm curious about players' interaction with only that little info on what's going on.

I was thinking a mod only server? maybe dmw 4.0 with the instructions how to play on the server in the opening comment box of the server itself with thread in forum for the link to exact mod download? This would be awesome.....

To hit on that idea even more, I was thinking a diplo with a Fog of war kind of setup. No silos, only fleets and Airbases available. Should be an interesting look.

Or perhaps a diplo or even a 1v1/2v2 server to where no units are visible until Defcon 1.
Just imagining the look on someones face when 44 bombers are right on top of their fleet or Silos.

Well I really love that idea. But not quit sure how to make it happen. I know how to restrict radar in till certain points of the game. But to make units invisible in till Defcon 1 will be tricky. I will give it a shot most definitely.

What mod is that? Could you provide me a link to the mod please. I also love the idea of running a mod server but not sure how the community would like it. But If you get enough supports I would put a Mod server up definitely.

Lastly, I really like all these Ideas. So it will take some time for me to think witch ones to put up. My favorite so far would be Endless idea of making units invisible.

I like the idea of a diplo server where you have to join up with one, or sometimes 2 other players and keep that team consistent throughout the game. Also, you have to team up before Defcon 3. And instead of playing passively like diplo, set the scoring options so that it encourages aggressive play. Maybe +2 for a mega kill and -1 for a mega death.

We could call it 2v2. Or 3v3.

Well I looked over the Sample Config and didn't find any Commands for it. But I am sure there is a command for hidden units within the hundreds of samples.... So if someone would like to help find a way to do this that would be great!

Here is the sample config where you can look for it:
