That sounds... familier...

Oh yes, because it's already been suggested. :P


Well I'm not gonna bother going back through ten pages just to see if it's been suggested now, would I? XP

Unless you're going to Search for if it's been suggested already instead, then yes, you should. ;)

(good crates)

Cannon: Allows the player to create the old beta unit of Darwinia, the Field Gun, which can only fire 3 shots of the Space Invader's Napalm Bombs, but the cannon is player controlled. Or it can fire 5 pods, if the field gun is filled with a sufficiant enough of Multiwinians, that when they hit the ground release the multiwinians.

Barrier: Allows the player to create 3 walls (smaller than normal walls) and rotate them to the players choice of direction.

Wall Buster: like the bombs on the first assault map, when multiwinians bring them to a wall, they detonate violently and destroy the walls.

Shaman Promotion: Allows the player to promote an officer to a shaman, and causes any nearby enemy multiwinians into virii, which are on the players team. Also, unlike the officer, can move without having to use a specifive mode. Can also influence the virii movements, like the officer of Darwinia.

Webworm: allows the player to spawn a cave (old Darwinia Building) which lasts so long and releases virii.

Vacuum: a small, weak platform that will act like a harvester, but will also harvest live multiwinians, and transform them to souls, then after collecting so many, will spew them back out as the players multiwinians.

(bad and neutral Crates)

Kamikaze: causes all powerup units (engineer, harvester, squad,etc) to detonate violently. Does not effect turrets.

Futurwinian Strike: causes small ufo's to bomb the area that the crate was collected, and will turn any multiwinians caught in the explosion into Futurewinians

Spider's web: when the crate is captured, all nearby multiwinians are trapped in a form of spider's web, and a neutral team spider will smash them, without threat of being hurt or having to chase them down. Will where off over time, but the spider will stay.

Storm: causes an array of bad wheather to happen within a random area (75% of the time near the captured crate). Ranges from several lightning strikes, to a single meteor strike.

Nature's wraith: like storm, but every bad thing of weather hit's the playing field (Lightning storms, meteor strikes, tornados, hail (small particles that fall fast, and injure multiwinians like lasers), etc).

Forest: grows an array of trees.

Forest Fire: grows trees, but soon after they are grown, get hit by a meteor, catching them a blaze, and completely decimated.

Beam Strike: kinda like the Futurewinians, only a small satellite get's closer to the play field, and when it gets so close, fires a massive laser beam which decimates all in its wake, but only moves so far, and happens at a random place.

(Multiwinian Powerups)

Spread Fire: all multiwinians in the designated area fire lasers in an arc formation, causing more targets to be hit, but causes their reload time to lengthen.

Mine: all multiwinians in the targeted area are turned into small bombs, that can't be seen by the other player, and when enemy units move over them, they explode violently, also can be detected by engineers, and can be shot and detonated. they do not chain reaction eachother.

Armor Peircers: causes any laserfire from selected multiwinians to explode, but cause longer reload time.

(New egg/triffid egg units)

Tripod - Probably will be fixed if put for this :D

UNLIKELY (80% unlikely to happen) spawns a crate.

New Power-ups -Continued

(MW power-ups)

Gun officers: the powerup would allow officers to pull down their flag like a command and form it into a kind of gun, and fire long range, accurate shots, but would have a long period of reload, and would fire a grenade, after a previous grenade detonates (you would hear the squadie recharge sound) but it only uses 'nades to close enemies and would use its "laser gun" on longer ranged target... but it would require the player to get a crate.

Mirror Shield: a small, 3d model is placed in front of the selected MW's that make it so whatever the enemy shoots, the MW shoots 2x harder (i.e. Laser - Subversion, Grenade - Rocket, Rocket - 3 Battle Cannon shells, Flame - napalm 'nade, battle cannon shell - airstrike, etc) (not exactly these, just the first that came to mind)

Reflective Shield: (above) but anything that hit's the MW (lasers , 'nades, rockets,etc) do half damage and fly back to the enemy doing full damage, plus whatever the MW fires at it.

Formation Shields: has to be used on a formation, but all the front MW's gain a 3d model (like the 2 above shields) but it only reduces the damage done on the MW's Behind. thus acting like a counter to a massive MW army attacking the Formation.

Sticky 'Nades: speaks for self, the grenades of selected MW's will stick to their targets, but they'll always throw the 'nades to touch the enemy.

(Good Crates)

MODIFIED- when antnests are spawned now, they are on NEUTRAL Team. But now they would be on the players team, and could only be spawned at key zones (i.e. Spawn Points, Score Zones (for KOTH), Pulse Bomb and Pulse Generators (Assault), Rockets (RR), Squads, Officers, ETC If I left any out).

Sepulveda's help: The player gains the ability to construct a building that when you send MW's to it, they gain heavier armour and have a faster rate of fire. Can only be used 1nce, or else it'll destroy the currently constructed one and will place the new one. Also, Is a destroyable building and is always on the player who spawned its team.

(Bad and Neutral Crates)

Invasion:(SIDE NOTE!!!: I suggested it to be a new game mode.) 2 Futurewinian Motherships come down and harass the teams, while their UFO bombers (in the first one) bomb in random positions, while smaller pods just hit the ground releasing 10 each, and the futurewinians are resistent to their bombs, after all this is over, cracks will form in random locations and will burst open in explosions, releasing tripods armed with a beam that converts instead of kills like the normal tripods of darwinia.Also there'll be armour that just rise from the sea and bring Futurewinians to the land, for a litteral Full Scale Invasion of the map. This is the hardest Futurewinian invasion, and this crate can only be opened on Hard Ai Settings.

Seems like alot, I know, I'll try and organize it a bit more >.<

For Everyone's consideration, please look at this before posting any new ideas (thanks to Iron Will for composing this).

I'd also ask if this could be amended and put into the first post, for people to look at before posting in the thread...

IronWill wrote:Here is a summary of all the ideas proposed on the topic. Things that were too similar were reported only once (credits goes to first submitter). Proposals really to weird were also ignored but there were only one or two of that kind. You may also find that the categories names may not be the best choices, I did what I could.

Hope this can help making things clear !

Maybe because this list was compiled on Page 6.

So if you see your idea here? We've already thought of it loooong before you did.

Resulting in my untimely failure of the X-ray crate because I'm just being a lazy bastard at the moment. :P

I didn't even know that was you. It just looks dull without any ratings. Hell, ONE rating would do, and I could care less about how much crap/praise it got.

The futurewinian powerups seem awesome, especially if the bombers dock to the underside o the mothership dalek-style. Makin g those bomers very fast, dropping barrages of heavy suty subversion rays, hitting the gruond while they are alread long gone, would look absolutely awesome and would cause total chaos.
And if motherships are permanent, nukes should be able to bring one down.
