Ok so now I'm in the mood for making suggestions again. Apollo, or anyone on the team, when do we see a campaign mission where Helsinki is occupied by Freedom League forces and the subsequent invasions of Turku and Åland. This would pave way for an invasion on the Swedish capital of Stockholm. In these cases you must free and defend these locations when playing as the A.L.

Edit: I'm obviously asking too much here xP

Right. Cleaned this stupid topic of all its bullshit. Anyone else want to start shit? Do it in Open Topic or somewhere the fuck else, or else I get Apollo to have the RS area closed for all except news-posts and nobody will be able to post any comments at all except for me, Elerium and a select few others.

I'm fed up of the ridiculous amount of spam and retardism that utterly confounds this forum. It can't be nice for Apollo to think all his fandom is a bunch of children, and I can't be arsed being nursemaid to all of you. Someone else can breastfeed and change the fucking lot of you.

It stops. NOW. Or else. No more retarded suggestions from people who clearly don't know the limitations of the engine, no more ridiculous degrading spam. Constructive ideas and suggestions and bug reports, along with cogent and meaningful discussion of the factions or the general gameplay factors only. No more flaming of staffers of the mod, or former staffers of the mod, for any reason, or I will see your asses warned, or banned if I can persuade them enough. Don't think that because I like you the result will be any different, either. It won't be; you'll get what's fucking coming to you irrespective.

Normally I'm fairly liberal and I'm all for random banter, but right now I'm going to call time on it. Stop having fun on these forums. Have fun instead on the fucking mod and use this forum properly and respectfully. No more random-ass crap will be tolerated around here by me. You've all got used to things being let slide. No more.

Now you will all be-fucking-have. Simples. No arguments, no ifs, no ands, no buts. I'm sick of fucking children and childish behaviour. Repeat after me: The Robot Storm forum is NOT a ball-pool.

How many large cities about survived the nuclear fun? I was wondering if Switzerlands neutrality would help in this situation lol.

No large cities survived.

The old orders quickly collapse without a centralized government as Nexy wipes out Allied Command and Government along with Einstein (and his Time Machine) in one fell swoop. Nexy being assigned to the old Allies brutally backstabs them and annihilates their armies (as Nexy was assigned to all Allied armies at this point) with new terrifying weapons. Those who knew of Nexus' treachery at this point didn't last long enough to get the word out..
It was assumed by all that the Soviet Union in its death throes from its own civil war and the war with Yuri nuked itself and everyone else..
Then the Allied Chrono Legion, hidden in various places around the globe as a shadow group takes over as command falls through and creates a hidden "utopia" of sorts underground. The Soviets on the other hand ended up brutally turning into warlord factions holding a status quo with remaining nuclear weapons while terrorists set up in more disenfranchised areas. Yuri's remnant forces, leaderless without a master also wander into the nuked old ruins of cities to fight an endless war against non believers where they can hide.

Also lol neutrality, there is no neutrality in RS, it's eat or be eaten, Switzerland is directly in the middle of Europe next to Germany which in RS would be right next to where Nexus started, guess what happens..

Honestly, i think the fact is, we'd really need a visual aid to just showcase how GRIM Robot Storm Universe is like nice video of entire globe of Earth showering in nuclear explosions so you guys would drop the whole idea of few countries being spared and taking up the role of a hero which is so cliche as it would mean a functional government to organise things.

in world of RS, there are no governments left standing, no order like old world instead such order has decayed and we are back into uncivilized times where pockets of resistance forces exist and civilians are the ones to be exploited/made use of for the needs of the military of these resistances.

Allied Legion was a special division army within the old allies like special forces which however had to take up global allied leadership given normal lines of leadership were lost.

Allied Legion rule by constant martial law while elsewhere where they are not established, total anarchy reigns across Earth and Freedom League is quick to offer "salvation" but they have their own petty interests of old fashioned terrain conquest under different warlords in mind, not the people's best interests in mind and each warlord is territorial and they do fight among each other for resources.

Why was entire globe nuked more or less?

Nexus calculated the human numerical amounts too much plus keeping such army size production hidden to deal with 6billion would take long for even machine army...so even the odds and make humans suspect each other by initiating nuclear launches and the counter strikes meant total destruction of Russia,America, Germany,UK,Australia just to name a few.

After that event, there was no United Nations and the sort, Humanity survivors had to rebuild a new order from the Ashes of what once was and of course Allied Legion and Freedom League leaders pretty much accused each other for the nuclear exchanges with both pretty much vowing to payback the favor so tensions between the two were rather cold war like and diplomatic connections were severed.

Meanwhile Nexus was building up his main army in devastated germany while continuing to plant false evidence of either side committing attacks just playing the humans like puppets until time was right.

Nexus had played his cards perfectly and humans were none the wiser and when they were, Nexus was too strong and eventually Nexus' own over confidence and search for additional weapons just unchained Osiris Project which could not be contained.

ROBOT STORM had begun, civilians were either massacred by Nexus exterminator squads or joined ranks of FL or Osiris Collective assimilated while Allied Legion just provided utopia for those with the incentive to provide for it and their protection, those with nothing of value were left to their own fate.

so, forget about countries, in RS those areas are just labeled as wasteland/zone number instead of saying former america etc.

I don't see how they can be any civilians. If the human population is either FL or AL (or more unnamed warbands) and being enslaved by Osiris, I don't see how there can also be unarmed humans left. There wouldnt be enough to even defend against an infinite army of machines, 1 for 1 more powerful than a human soldier, let alone fighting amongst themselves. I'd imagine everyone left alive has to fight in some form or another.

There's a lot of vast space in the world wastelands? ;) You might find some militia and a ton of civvies relying on the militia to survive.

The Allied central is hidden but other areas have outposts where they spread their influence but mostly just observe as they work with their complex chrono network to get across the globe, being more fewer with less resources and having a tonload of high tech to manage.
With FL it's whether they come across an insignificant place of value by chance and say Join us or die etc etc.
By civilian I guess we mean the tags in game.. "scavenger" or "militia" would be appropriate as they might just be former terrified communities left alone, gone individual with guns, while most of the world is ruins.. You'll only find harrowing wastelands and ruined cities along with no civvies on the road to Nexy's influence spheres though.

FL basically already has manipulated/roused/encouraged nearly all militia and such to join in their spheres of influence (Russia, China, etc) then when firmly in their grip they are claimed by controlling FL subordinate under warlord or terrorist etc then get sent off to war providing manpower.

AL has already got all the best minds, generals, wealthy and a ton of able bodied men but select from places if they deem it neccessary or if place contributes to AL war effort in some way or another. Otherwise they'd ignore some ruined survivor bloodfeud with another town or were mutates (being a mutate to the AL is a VERY bad thing).

Osi eats any place they come across, Nexy wipes out any place he comes across.

So yes even for the civvies somewhere hiding out alone it is a harsh life as Yuri stuff also runs around along with godknows what lurking in the night and for them only the strongest survive and with primitive weapons, firearms and GLA type technicals they can sort of manage but when it comes to one of the factions might vs them you don't want to see what happens when they try.

I'd like to see a mission where Yuri fanatics take over a military outpost and resort to semi-guerilla tactics, unorthodox psychic and self-destructive warfare. They capture and control terrorists, peace keepers and invading enemies alike. In these hectic modern times the great military powers have already developed new counter measures to overcome and resist much of Yuri's old psychic warfare tactics to render them relatively obsolete. Yuri's followers use whatever resources they can get their hands on and modify them for their own means. This time Yuri's followers are crazy and desperate enough to do suicide attacks. Their goal is set to bend the world into Yuri's ideals.

(Let's pretend in this case that it's not Nod)

What do Nod and Yuri have to do with this? Or Fallout 2 for that matter? You two sure you posted in the right forum?

The Nod art was there simply to reflect the suggested new nature of the Yuri remnants that exist in RS. I requested to ignore that the art was actually made for Nod. This was a legitimate suggestion.

fireboy was simply suggesting that some specific things could be designed similar to the style of fallout.

There is no Nod art in this thread? :p

Beyond that, fair enough. The F2 reference just didn't seem very relevant from where I am sitting, so I just wondered is all.

Yuri fanatics are woefully inequipped to deal with the factions in any way to be a nuisance, mind control is also a ditched weapon because humanity at this point has developed/evolved countermeasures against it.

Remnant stuff is so junk that their situation is dire and therefore have to kill than use manipulation which by now simply won't work. Against the weakminds of the past yes easy prey to obey but in RS a clone would be hard pressed to drill through the anti-mind control pumped out by a simple guardian, and even then FL has human waves and anti-mind control special forces in some cases if they ever have to face Yuri fanatics (which some are already incorporated in FL). With Nex it's can you mind control a computer answer is obviously no and with Osi mind control is irrelevant as subjects are already controlled to such an extent with some psi thrown in there for good measure.
Then when it comes to civilian militia they know by now to shoot Yuri stuff on sight knowing that they're raiders and civilians being through various wars know signs of mind control etc.

They could really never take over a military outpost as they are leaderless and have no command with any other fanatics. Instead you'd probably find them protecting their master's secret lab somewhere, staying around some place of value or stuck in a city where they are just using the ruins to survive by raiding for supplies and to shoot anyone on sight or something. Their goals is just survival, any wishful returns to glory of old Yuri vision is why they're nigh exterminated anyway. As such their numbers are very low to achieve anything other than raiding and survival.

If Yuri's fanatics should be summed up it would be tattered old super soldiers with only their ancient psychic equipment keeping them alive barely hiding in some irradiated ruins further screwing up their mindset with clones using mind powers to fry brains, in junk vehicles, who hide in some areas, who don't even have the mindset to achieve a level of progress other than survive as raiders remembering a dead legacy.

No because Yuri doesn't exist anymore. They're raiders. Remnants of the old world. If there was a campaign they probably wouldn't play a part in it, they're like flavour in the post-apoc atmosphere.

Pretty unlikely as even pulling a proper release off is proving to be pretty poor at this point so stay tuned for invite stage. :p
