A questionaire

Post by The Wanderer » Fri Oct 24, 2008 11:49 am

Just a general poll so i know what the community wants. I was going to make a poll that would be at the top of this thread, but apparently it's not possible to have multiple questions.

Storyline
1. What do you prefer?
- a story line that ends before HL2 started (i.e. before gordons return) (NO 7 hour war comments, i'm not going to do that)
- a story line that starts before HL2 and ends after the fall of the citadel started
- a story line that starts on the events of HL2.

2. Heroes
- yes
- no

3. What would you rather prefer as a location for the storyline's events:
- An undisclosed area (i.e. not known/mentioned)
- or suggest a location here and it will be considered

4. Would you rather prefer a storyline that ties in with HL2 or one that is unconnected tot it?
- Rather that it ties in with HL2
- Rather that it is unconnected to HL2

5. Should the storyline be compelling? (i.e. quite important)
- yes
- not necisarily

6. Should the Storyline be more important than gameplay?
- yes
- no

Gameplay
1. Races
- A campaign with only the possibility of playing the Combines
- A campaign with only the possibility of playing the Rebels
- Playing both (not necessarily perspective from both sides on the same events)

2. Speed (i.e. amount of resources)
- fast (many resources)
- slow (about the same as currently released maps)

3. Should the non-playable races be included and to what extent?
- Yes, give them a mission not tied in with the battle between rebels and combines.
- yes, but only add them as a small nuisance in maps where rebels and combine fight.
- no, get rid of them, i don't want zombies and antlions.

Environments
1. What kind of environments would you rather NOT see?
- Forests
- Icy landscapes
- Deserts
- Hills
- Barren wastelands
- Cities with Citadels
- Cities without Citadels
- Cities owned completely by rebels, hardly touched by Combines.

Custom Content
1. New units
- yes, but only if they fit
- no

I hope i can get some good feedback on this as it'll be important if you want something that you'll like playing. I might update this thread with new questions as i get answers.

I'm sticking with the "Rebels escape the citadel going *BOOM*" story, which i find is quite good, and if executed well, could become a very good campaign

on an unrelated note: DAMNIT, COMBINE IS A PLURAL WORD, LIKE 'SHEEP', YOU DON'T NEED AN S AT THE END (- A campaign with only the possibility of playing the Combines)

hmm weird nobody like a storyline that starts before HL2s events and continues beyond the events of HL2.

Storyline Question 3 got scrapped and all questions after that got renumbered.

Okay my votes:

Storyline:
1: - a story line that starts before HL2 and ends after the fall of the citadel started
2: - Yes, i would like heroes, but only in the campaign, not in multiplayer or skirmish.
3: - Undisclosed location would be interesting
4: - Rather that it ties in with HL2
5: - yes
6: - no

Gameplay:
1: - Playing both (not necessarily perspective from both sides on the same events)
2: - slow (about the same as currently released maps)
3: - yes, but only add them as a small nuisance in maps where rebels and combine fight.

Enviroments:
I am fine with everything

Custom Content:
Yes, but only if they fit
*I think this is very important or we will not be able to balance the game very easily, and it will be considerably less interesting.

just to explain a few things:

Storyline question 4 is about if the storyline should be connected to HL2, so that means should the storyline have events that also happen in the real HL2 story (connected) or not (unconnected)

Custom Content question is if you want to see additional units or not, balancing isn't really a problem in singleplayer than it is in MP and i'm going for a Singleplayer campaign, not a MP one. It's just to see if people are open to new types of units like minelayers and such or if they are open to reskins/remodelled units.

Storyline
1. What do you prefer?
- a story line that ends before HL2 started

2. Heroes
- yes
(Maybe. What exactly do you put into the term "Hero" here?)

3. What would you rather prefer as a location for the storyline's events:
- or suggest a location here and it will be considered.
(I'll be honest. I'd wet myself if a campaign set in places like Norway happened. If attempted, however, please do consider fjords as the Rebels' likely hiding spots, and the more open coast as the Combine's.)

4. Would you rather prefer a storyline that ties in with HL2 or one that is unconnected tot it?
- Rather that it is unconnected to HL2

5. Should the storyline be compelling? (i.e. quite important)
- yes

6. Should the Storyline be more important than gameplay?
- yes

Gameplay
1. Races
- Playing both (not necessarily perspective from both sides on the same events)

2. Speed (i.e. amount of resources)
- slow (about the same as currently released maps)

3. Should the non-playable races be included and to what extent?
- yes, but only add them as a small nuisance in maps where rebels and combine fight.

Environments
1. What kind of environments would you rather NOT see?
- Icy landscapes
- Deserts
- Barren wastelands
- Cities with Citadels

Custom Content
1. New units
- yes, but only if they fit

----

If wanted, I can even write story/manuscript, as well as pull in various facts and locations to go with it. Being Norwegian, I'm familiar with names from here as well, if such are wanted--either for this or for anything else, honestly.

So is this going twards a map you're making, or just random collection? If its for inspiration I have a good series plotted out, but need an experienced mapper.

Sorry, my own campaign. I'm overloaded with work as is, so i couldn't squeeze anything more in my schedule.

Also about the "Heroes", they'd be custom units or modified existing ones as i'm not going to use any HL2 storyline character on the battlefield.
