Space war (NIFE game idea)
Posted: Posted May 11th, 2017 by Xhin
Just yet another idea I had for a NIFE game once some of the new systems are up
Two teams, with 2+ people each (3 vs 3 seems best)
Both teams have a Ship that they use for battle, to go around the map, and that they can upgrade. It's a Vehicle.
Ships can move between planets but can't go down to them; humans can go down to planets but can't move between them.
Go down to planets and collect things, fight NPC aliens, etc to get resources.
Use those resources to craft smaller vehicles, robots, human weapons and ship weapons.
For maybe a week PVP is turned off and it's all about exploring and crafting
then PVP is turned back on and the goal is to destroy the opponent ship / kill the players in it, etc. You'll probably want to continue exploring to get the resources necessary for better ship weapons and robots/human weapons, etc.
The game has no sneak whatsoever. Everything is visible at all times, except who's in a vehicle isnt visible.
Everything is automatic, no Host interaction needed (except to end the game and switch PVP on).
Each team has a private commlink.
A "round" is 24 hours -- all that does is recovers your ship's "Electricity" Stat to full.
"Electricity" is what mana shows up as and can be used for advanced weapons / you can interact with machines to refill shields with it or regain health or maybe upgrade stats.
Destroying a ship kills off all characters inside it, but the game only ends if you kill off all the other team's characters too -- since they can't switch planets they'll be stuck at whatever planet their ship was at or maybe be scattered if they were strategic.
