lets hear your opinions on what "you think" they should do, leave this change that, make this stronger, make this weaker, add this, discuss maybe 3D options.

What's up

Hey, remember me? Odstjj75? :P Well I do definitely agree on 3D options but hopefully it doesn't have sucky ass graphics eh?

As the old saying goes: Defcon 2 would be a terrible game, you can only launch nukes during Defcon 1.

I want the computer to play more erratically or have different modes than simply attack full on. Have it vote randomly on requests to kick or join alliances. Have it leave alliances or request to join others at approx the same rate as humans. Not in its own best interest? So what? It would make the game TONS more interesting.

Nobody is asking to make a game called "Defcon 2". Some want Defcon sequel. You don't have to call it "Defcon 2".

Another thing, I should be able to send radar I get from players in my alliance to someone not in the alliance, my choice. Noone else, just me.

I think my suggestions have been improvements on Defcon, Shak. What improvements/fixes would you like to see?

first of all some bug fixes (circling nukes, land ships etc.)

then a friend list and in lobby a chat, where you can see how many are online and who.

perhaps a ranking system with stats.

faster rejoin if dropped.

and other things i forgot for now.

sfericz, that would be good. an uplink 2 :3

yeah this post was just made to see and give people ideas for mods, and improvements, and to let their voice be heard about what they want.

its all good stuff. i personaly want a globe to play on a spherical battle ground you can still zoom in and zoom out, but when you want to move the map around it still moves but the camera is fixed it just rotates the globe.
AI managment tool, set stuff a diffuculty or, a type of AI back in the day of C&C you can set them up to be like they will send jus a few troops in at a time, but quickly, or they will send massive armies at you. it was a customizable enemy. it was pretty fun and gave the game alot more challenge,
i think it would be cool to have multiple phases to the nukes, boost phase and what not and in certain phases they can be attacked by fighters and battle ships. boost phase is the stage where the icbm, or any kind of long range missile is most vulnerable phase, that's when the fighters could attack it. after wards it goes into orbit, and comes back down. after the boost phase a 10 second phase, it cant be destroyed unless by a silo...

haha be kinda cool if you can tag your fleet, like shift f1 on a highlighted fleet you could give it a number like number 1. or number 2. make it where you hit that number and it takes you right to the fleet. instead of searching around for it. same with silos and maybe bombers.

ranking systems and a friends list are almost necessary for any large multiplayer game on a PC or a mac. in my opinion

As a game its almost perfect. I only want UI improvments and community features. Like copy and paste in chat window, a global chat, auto-downloading of critical mods, etc. Oh and fixing of bugs of cource.
