What do you think about a Doomsday Device Mod

Postby nukethegreens » Fri Nov 17, 2006 10:36 pm

Hi guys

what dou you think about a mod which would give you a Doomsday Device which will create an gigantic detonation which will obliterate / incinerate almost every city, airport, radar station and silo when used.

Why say hi to yourself?

No, this would not be a good idea, it would destroy all the strategy, etc etc.

Was just an idea....maybe the last weapon to use. Maybe it could only be used while the victory timer is running

What advantage would there be in using it? How would it affect game balance? Can you defend against it? Why do you think it would be a good idea?

Why not just start a single player game with no opponents and variable units, use up all your credits on silos and subs, and nuke the world.

Seems like it'd be just as much fun, and a lot less likely to be abused by griefer children.

What would be the point of the game, then?

If you like pretty explosions, go watch television.

Um... I think that people are doing exactly that -- they are saying that they don't like it. I think the only dumb suggestion in this thread is yours. By the way, you failed to answer my questions.

"Kurth: If you like pretty explosions, go watch television."

:?:

The Sowijet Union had build this kind off superweapon/ doomsday device.... A H-Bomb as big as a Tanker. So I thought that this could be in as well.

Maybe triggered when attacking a special city, etc. or when a number off missile detonated on your own land

In this game nobody wins so what's the strategy anyway

Tsar Bomba was tested far above the arctic circle, sure, but it was never intended for warfare. It was to show the U.S. Who was winning the nuclear arms reace. Though it was the largest nuclear bomb ever detonated, it was so large and so ungainly as to be impossible to be delivered in an ICBM.

Plus, outside of the blast area, the only damage being done was to cause shockwaves that apparently broke windows in finland and made seismic devices register the blast.

So, after analyzing the "sowijet union"'s massive bomb, we can conclude that your hypothesized superweapon and tsar bomba are not the same, and your doomsday weapon is nothing more than fiction.

In this game nobody wins so what's the strategy anyway


WHy does the game announce that the person with the best score is the Winner?

Sure, eveyone dies in Defcon, but there's one player who dies the least, and is the winner. That is the objctive of Defcon.
