Smartphone!

Postby lamefun » Mon Aug 31, 2015 6:55 am UTC

It's 2015. Unvanquished is set in times far beyond 2015. They clearly should have smartphones!

Map

An interactive, scrollable, zoomable map that makes beacons actually useful. Should have 3 modes. Every mode should display friendly structures, team mates, enemies within the sight of team mates and classes, marked enemy structures and their types.

2D mode that's like the normal mini-map.

3D mode:

Fly mode (where you can look around as if you were a spectator). You can see the exact location of every beacon in the 3D space, so you can learn the exact positions of all alien structures, the positions of your team mates and also the aliens within the view of your team mates. With this, you can plan your attack without having your team mates tell you anything!

Bot Control

Allows to control the bots.

Slots

Allows the player to play a slot machine! Slot machines are addictive and fun! It should consume special slot machine tokens that can be earned only by destroying alien structures and should occasionally pay out with minor power-ups (eg. +10% damage), with a very, very small chance (eg. once per 1000 games on average) of paying out with a game-breaking jackpot (eg. an armor with 95% protection, 1,000,000,000 credits, etc.) The app should in theory make humans more motivated to go out and fight.

Photos

Allows to take photos of them map and save them to the gallery.
