  1. One of the more interesting topics on the Wasteland 2 forums was a series of posts by the community on interesting encounter ideas. I think that might also be a useful topic here, so how about it? Do you have a brief but unique idea for an encounter or a short side quest in the P:E setting? It doesn't have to be anything fancy, just something unique or memorable. I'll throw a quick one out there to get the topic rolling:
  2. Hello all, I've been a long time inactive on the forums lately, so apologies if this has already been addressed, but I've just gotten to wondering of how many 3D models can be rendered on screen in a 2.5D game, and of how many of these models can have advanced or basic AI. Actually, I feel this is a gameplay impelementation request more than anything, but what I really want to see in game at some point or another is full scale battles being played out. In the old IE games, technology limited what could be rendered and controlled on screen, and so battles were always fairly small and isolated affairs. Given that our computers have improved quite a bit since then, I wanted to be able to play out a battle or two on even grander scale. Everyone on these forums has seen the LOTR movies, or at the least read books depicting epic battles of full armies I can fairly assume. The battle at Helm's Deep, Minas Tirith, etc - you get the picture. Those are abolutely awesome, and I'd love to be a part of one, even if just as a little game avatar. Full scale battles crop up now and then in modern games, but as I've seen them in full 3D games tend to be extremely limited by rendering capability and processing power. This usually means static battles - groups of warriors fighting endlessly around you in simple animation, untouchable by the PC. While this itself is perfectly acceptable to me, I wonder if using 2D maps in PE can reserve some more horsepower for drawing more 3D models (bigger battles, better animations). More, I wonder if modern processors can handle advanced scripting of several models or groups of models (platoons) such as to create a dynamic battlefield. This doesn't mean that each indivual combatant on screen needs to have advanced AI, or even that AI needs exist at all outside of PC combat. Maybe the battles could advance in real time along a prewritten script in response to player events (for pacing). Maybe the player needs to respond to battle events to shape it accordingly. Anyway, what I'm getting at is: how feasable is this? How big, dynamic, and epic do you speculate these battles can get? Are such scenarios even an element you would like to experience in PE? Should I add a poll?
