TOTALLY AGREED WITH IT! :)

 

1) New Game Mode: ASSAULT (Objetcive Type)

 

2) UI Improv: Scoreboard Viewable EVERY TIME!

 

3) UI Improv: a b]Voting Panel for Quick Changes[/b]

 

4) Gameplay: give the ability to change class while playing.

 

This are the main things i would like to see in a new big-patch.

 

DM and TDM? No, pls, ther's already UT2k4 that gives a full load of mindless extermination, we don't need it here too.

 

As for tha CTF mode... i cannot imagine an empire trooper fleeing with a flag on his back and a rebel pursuing him... :lol:

ARGH...! No!

Definitely NO!

Do we wanna morph SWB in UT???

We don't need of those idiot bumping-jumping-bunny-players, plz... :D

You cannot both shoot and jump and it's good in this way, let's not introduce lame things in this beautiful game! :D

Yeah "capture the flag" does not seem to fit star wars's theme perhaps a steal the planes type map? I think i posted this idea before, you would have to escort an R2 unit to the main enemy base and download the plans, then escort it back and load the plans into your base, this could start a countdown to victory or just give you a bonas (See all oponents on map, extra reinforcement points whatever) But it would be kind of goofy for an imperial officer to say with that dignified british accent, The rebels have captured our flag!!!

 

Some other ideas

 

Make some of the terrain destructable, nothing big just crates and benches, i know this isn't important but it just makes the game cooler...

 

Weapons you can pick up, these would be speacial weapons that you have to find on the map (usually at the beginning by an ammo droid) that any class can use, these could be Grenade Launchers, Health and Ammo dispensers, E-webs(that cool machine gun thing in Empire Strikes Back) a grenade holder that lets you hold like 10 extra grenades, and some other miscellanious weapons. These weapons would stay after you die so others could pick them up.

 

Allow the pilot to be able to rewire mines with his fushion cutter so that it turns friendly, this way if you capture a base and there are still enemy mines around it your pilot can convert the mines, it should take a while to convert them though, maybe half as long as building a turret so the pilot can't do it in the middle of combat, only when the area is safe.

 

also allow the game to be playable while you are typing, i hate having to send a half written message just because someone has found where im hiding...

 

 

oh yeah and a wampa on hoth! that would be awsome!

 

 

I agree with most of the above great ideas exept the ability to cange classes mid-game... That would kind of destroy the purpose of having separate classes altogether

Actually, it would'nt be a problem if there was a ballistic system involving higher bullet deviation from standing or jumping. But since Battlefront has no such system, no, it's going to turn into UT.

One simple request...

 

Auto Downloading when joining a server!!!

 

That way you don't get stupid, "You do not have the map being played"...messages.

 

I have every single map that there is in my Addon Folder yet several servers will say I don't have it yet others say I do.

 

So Auto downloading would fix this by taking what ever the servers are saying is missing and pushing them to the clients.

AUTO DOWNLOADING!!!

 

Have any of you people played Call Of Duty.

 

You don't enter a game, leave a game, re-install or any of that crap.

 

You pick the server you want to go to and when you select it...it loads everything you need to play on that server. That means it makes you have the correct version or mod that their server is running instead of getting stupid messages saying you don't have a map when you do. Plus it is better then having to manually download and try to figure out the version that a server is running which can take hours. No much more frustrating then spending hours downloading ever custom map (newest version) and then going to some servers and have the "Can't Play" Message and then find a couple others that let you in.

 

Then inbetween the maps it will load the next one if you don't have it. Plus the perks are huge since once you have played that server for a while you are good to go and don't have to hunt around for a stupid server that works.

 

Don't tell me it won't work when a game like Call of Duty has it and it works like a freakin champ.

True but this is a pain...half the servers say you are good to go the others say you don't have a map you just loaded.

 

Something has to be fixed and that would be a fix.

 

I could care less either way if I could play on every server when it says I have the map when selecting from the server list...

 

It is frustrating to go through the server list and it says I have all the maps and then on half of the servers I chose they say I don't have the map being played.

 

This is not a good thing and it needs to be fixed somehow.

This is more a problem with the map makers creating too many beta versions of their maps.

It leads to confusion among players and servers.

 

There's no way to solve this except telling map makers to be sure they release only a certain amount of versions of their maps and make it easy to access and easy to get news of.

I agree with Darth Derkie, no switching sides in the middle of the game, it sucks when all your chances of winning are crushed because everyone joins the other side...

 

Maybe you could set what your favorite side and then you have a greater chance of being on that side, but of course if everyone likes the rebels some people are just gonna have to suck it up and play imps...

First off, I think it is common procedure for every game based on the Quake Engine(at least a lot of them involved auto-download) but many others don't have that feature or can't.

 

UT2k3 have it... UT2k4 i don't know, but it's almost sure it have it.

What's the problem with that? Just put a little checkbox to enable or disable the autodownload, it's that easy...

 

But i must agree that maps are more in a beta status than a complete one and there are too much of them around.

 

A thing that i'd like to see in a next patch is a more customizable interface, where you can set up messages, hud and the likes, an interface that let me see any custom content i installed, like in UT2k4.

You would just set which side was your favorite for each setting (galactic civil war and clone wars) and then whenever you play a multiplayer game the computer will try to put you on that side. This doesnt mean you will always be on your favorite side, but it will at least increases the chances of it. if you like both sides evenly then just dont pick a favorite one, then you would have an equal chance of getting both.

 

now more ideas....

 

Star fighters should have less hitpoints (or just let rockets deal more damage to them) so that one rocket would take out a starfighter, but make the starfighters faster so they can easily dodge the rockets. This way you wouldnt have to waste half the game trying to kill one stinking snow speeder!!

 

 

The droid starfighter should be able to turn into a light walker like in the movies, i know some people think that this would give the CIS an unfair advantage but think about it if you have a walking starfighter, thats one less to help you keep the skys clear from enemy fighters, and if it only takes one rocket to destroy it then it must be fragile.

 

Another thing about starfighters, i hate it when im flying an X-wing and crash into the ground (yeah im a sucky pilot) but anything i hit remains undamaged, i think star fighters should do "suicide damage" nothing is more annoying then crashing into an infantry soldier and watching him just walk away...

 

The use of normal battledroids should be implemented in the game somehow, i want to see both super battledroids and normal battle droids on the map at the same time, maybe as a unique CIS ability you could pick between the two, or maybe the CIS get a free supply of normal battle droids (like the native NPC's) that appear on every map, they are weaker then super battle droids but dont lose reinforcement points when they die like a native, (because there cheap).

  • 2 weeks later...

Maybe a little late..but I have a few ideas.

 

1.FIX THE CRASH TO DESKTOP BUG!!!

This bad boy strikes me several times a night!

 

2. When you have spawn invincibility you shouldn't be able to be knocked down by mines, missiles or vehicles.

 

As it is now when you spawn all the guy in the AT-ST has to do is shoot you. You waste your 3 seconds of invincibility getting up....Then He fires again and your dead.

 

3. Would it be possible to allow the Scout to get a one shot kill head shot once in a while?

 

Maybe its my lag or bad hit detection but very seldom do I get one shot kill head shots. Unless I'm 10ft away of course.....:D

 

 

I Would like to see lots of other things happen for this game too but fixing the remaining bugs is on top of my list:)

ok maybe these ideas are more for battlefront 2 than a patch but if they can go in a patch brill

 

give the jet trooper a sniper rifle. i mean he can get into all these really good sniper positons, but no rifle to make use of them

 

i know that these things are all about balanceing, but instead of trying to make all classes equal by weaking there abilitys, make each class strong in there particular area, if anyone has ever played team fortress you will know what i mean

 

so that jet trooper is the sniper (able to get to good positions, but has weak armour)

 

this one is probably not going to be popluar. The dark trooper give him a better weapon a heavy duty thing, but to compansate make him slow, also give him better armour.

 

actually saying that armour strenght should change from class to class as well as speed, scouts should be fast, heavy weapons like dark trooper, driodeka should be slow.

I agree with "please" on the PunkBuster issue.

 

PunkBuster is the biggest piece-o-crap software.

 

When I play Joint Operations it will kick me out and give the reason that I am using "a cheat or trainer", which I am not.

 

Contacting Novalogic support is like talking to a wall - just get the same useless suggestions over and over.

 

I'd rather be able play against cheaters and ACTUALLY get to PLAY the game I paid money for then not be able to play at all due to the shoddy, faulty PunkBuster (a.k.a. GameBuster).

Overpowered. Period.

A slight twist of words that mean the same thing.

In a game like Battlefront, such a thing WILL lead to sniper whoring.

Somthing i'd like to see is a sort of strategic planning room, like after you've viewed your scores you click done then go to a room where you can either talk to everyone else about the game, or go to a room where only your teamates can go to discuss strategys for the next map (it would be revealed beforehand) This way you actually have time to plan somthing out instead of just short garbled messages you have to hurridly type ingame.

 

I woud also like to see some "unlockables" I was really disapointed when i realized there werent any (stupid misleading manuel) these could be things like diffrent skins, bonas levels, diffrent game mods, or maybe the ability to play as an NPC (ewok, gungan, etc) just for fun, you couldn't use them online.

 

Another thing that would be good to add is more strategic value to command posts, for the basic command post allowing you to spawn is enough, but I think certain comman posts should give you a bonas or somthing making them a higher priorety for the enemy to capture and for you to defend.
