#1098332 MO 3.3 // Feedback & Suggestions (Balance, New Features, Modifications etc.)

Posted by Solais on 15 March 2019 - 01:57 PM in Mental Omega 3.0-3.3 Discussion

That's one reason why you can't donate money to the devs, I'd think. As long as the project is not commercial, these things are not that much of a problem. Many other mods do this.




#1098325 Adding own missions to campaign

Posted by Solais on 15 March 2019 - 09:20 AM in Mental Omega 3.0-3.3 Discussion

And I seen some custom missions being added right into the launcher, in some of Martinoz' videos.




#1097939 Custom map thread.

Posted by Solais on 07 March 2019 - 07:56 PM in Mental Omega 3.0-3.3 Discussion

From all the custom campaign missions, like those posted here and/or showcased by Martinoz, which ones do you guys think would be cool if they were made official Covert Ops?




#1097893 MO 3.3 // Campaign, Cooperative & Challenge Discussion

Posted by Solais on 05 March 2019 - 04:29 PM in Mental Omega 3.0-3.3 Discussion

I think it was posted somewhere here that there will be and apparently it will be unlike anything that was seen before. I wonder what that means.

 

Also, I wonder if it will be still a linear, Foehn only act, or we'll play the Epsilon too? Maybe every mission will be a "double mission", where at the start, we can choose which side we take on and lead to victory, so based on player choice, Act 3 could be all Foehn missions, or all Epsilon, or even "play" a story where the power shifts with every battle, one Foehn mission, then one Epsilon mission, etc, all based on player choice. I don't think I ever seen something like that in an RTS before (then again, I haven't played all of them).




#1097761 Act II Predictions - SPOILERS for Act I

Posted by Solais on 02 March 2019 - 01:06 AM in Mental Omega 3.0-3.3 Discussion

Oof. The passive-aggressiveness. It can be cut like butter.

I don't think Libra will die though, most likely Yuri will. Remember LIBRA'S WORLD.




#1097304 MO 3.3 // Campaign, Cooperative & Challenge Discussion

Posted by Solais on 19 February 2019 - 08:58 AM in Mental Omega 3.0-3.3 Discussion

I think the better fan missions should become official Covert Ops missions.




#1096842 Custom map thread.

Posted by Solais on 06 February 2019 - 08:26 PM in Mental Omega 3.0-3.3 Discussion

Well, unless the mission takes place at a time before that tech was available (as in, not this mission, but in general).

Please do. :p




#1096691 Custom map thread.

Posted by Solais on 04 February 2019 - 12:01 AM in Mental Omega 3.0-3.3 Discussion

I wonder if some of the better custom missions might make it into the actual game as Covert Ops missions.




#1096451 MO 3.3 // Campaign, Cooperative & Challenge Discussion

Posted by Solais on 28 January 2019 - 11:38 AM in Mental Omega 3.0-3.3 Discussion

Watching Martinoz' videos about some of those Fan Missions, and man, I'd love some of those to make it into the game proper as Covert Ops missions. With some adjustments here and there, and of course, better English.

Chronofishing.




#1096013 MO 3.3 // Feedback & Suggestions (Balance, New Features, Modifications etc.)

Posted by Solais on 13 January 2019 - 07:29 PM in Mental Omega 3.0-3.3 Discussion

Personally I can imagine an interesting gimmicky singleplayer mission, maybe related to that Tower Defense mission I suggested many months ago, where the player would have a line of these new buildings around the map and they'd have to defend against the enemy by tactically chronolifting turrets and prismtowers around the map.




#1095304 Along Came Some Faction Guides

Posted by Solais on 27 December 2018 - 03:57 PM in Mental Omega 3.0-3.3 Discussion

And here I thought there was a new video.

SP always need to be a bit broken for the sake of the experience and enjoyment.




#1095146 Mental Omega Mission Loading Screen Template

Posted by Solais on 23 December 2018 - 12:08 PM in Mental Omega 3.0-3.3 Discussion

Actually it was this thread, thanks to the efforts of TerumasaReal who created the missing loading screens.




#1095119 MO 3.3 // Feedback & Suggestions (Balance, New Features, Modifications etc.)

Posted by Solais on 22 December 2018 - 04:06 PM in Mental Omega 3.0-3.3 Discussion

It's almost weird how Starcraft 2 was more MP focused despite also having the best damn RTS campaign ever made.




#1095103 MO 3.3 // Feedback & Suggestions (Balance, New Features, Modifications etc.)

Posted by Solais on 22 December 2018 - 11:16 AM in Mental Omega 3.0-3.3 Discussion

That's actually completely normal for any game that got both a strong SP and a strong MP. And I'm sure that MO focuses on both.

 

But, it is true that I noticed that C&C games often seem to have more SP fans. With Starcraft, I always heard about the e-sports and the multiplayer and all that, all the time. While when it comes to C&C, what can be heard is people always talking about the FMV cutscenes and such, rarely about multiplayer.




#1095060 MO 3.3 // Feedback & Suggestions (Balance, New Features, Modifications etc.)

Posted by Solais on 20 December 2018 - 11:47 PM in Mental Omega 3.0-3.3 Discussion

SP and MP games most of the time work by radically different rulesets to begin with. When campaigns in RTS games were nothing more than just skirmish games with restricted tech (and highly boring), that argument still worked. But when it tries to be more, tell an actual story, have special events that make the player feel different emotions as part of an experience, all that needs changes that line up with that experience. MO, with its complex and highly enjoyable missions is already way too far from the old "skirmish campaign" design. It's already a "separate game", and I love the mod for it. Imo, it's the best RTS campaign since Starcraft 2. So yes, I agree, separate rulesets would make the SP and MP even more different games, than what they already are, and as far as I'm concerned, that's a positive. If it would make the campaign even more enjoyable, more experimental, more unique, and decouple all the MP changes screwing with its playability, then I'm all for it.




#1095009 MO 3.3 // Feedback & Suggestions (Balance, New Features, Modifications etc.)

Posted by Solais on 19 December 2018 - 10:38 PM in Mental Omega 3.0-3.3 Discussion

It's probably too late now considering the game is huge now, but probably the best way to keep SP and MP separate would be to make a copy of every unit and building with a specific tag (like MP) so changing the MP stats wouldn't affect the missions. But this would be probably insane amounts of work.

Don't think it's zoomed in, units look the same size as 720p screen.

On the other hand, all the imaginative unbalanced new stuff can be easily added to the campaign, because that doesn't have to conform to balance that much. :V




#1094852 MO Meme Thread (Image Heavy)

Proudly hosted on Photobucket.

 

(Btw, there are MO tournaments?)




#1094779 MO 3.3 // Campaign, Cooperative & Challenge Discussion

Posted by Solais on 15 December 2018 - 05:47 PM in Mental Omega 3.0-3.3 Discussion

Personally, I'm almost afraid of the ending of Act 2. I might overhype it inside my head and let down myself. On the other hand, I'm also almost more curious about Act 3, because that can go anywhere and I feel it will be very different.

Ah, so they weren't changed then. I haven't played the mission.
