No no no come on now.
There are stand alone missions for the Multiplayer campaign yeah?
I'm sure there are.
Whats hard with setting Primary objectives in a mission, positioning ground and air objects and giving them objectives and waypoints etc?
That would do fine for stand alone multiplayer missions. If they want to release the scripting language for Campaigns then thats great. If Rage/DID want to include Events as has been done in several other flight simulators then that's even better where 'scripted'/triggered actions take place then thats great too.
People would just do several of these as they see fit, either for Multiplayer purposes, or single player play.
I wasn't referring to developing a Dynamic Campaign from scratch here..I am referring to single Missions, or missions strung together as the mission builder sees fit.
We were able to do this in sims as ancient (but golden) as US Navy Fighters 97, ATF Gold, Falcon 4, JAnes F18...the list goes on and on.
It ADDS to the simulation..it adds to the simulations longevity. I may have a great idea for a mission or scenario that I want me and my 3 friends to fly...why refuse me the option of being able to build it?
Have you heard of Janes F18? Seen the mission editor that came with that?
TAW had a dynamic campaign as well, that didn't stop GTT form developing a mission editor with which to create multiplayer missions did it?
It isn't impossible, or difficult. I am telling you that if Rage/DID don't make it available WITH the game, then GTT is just gonna come out with an updated version of their mission editor and charge US20.00 for it again..and people are gonna get annoyed..again..after they've flown the stock Multiplayer missions 15 times.
Not everyone wants to go and play through an entire campaign multiplayer, you see.
Think about Ladder Team competitions..think about developing some sort of custom "Capture The Flag" mission for TAW..sorry...Typhoon in your favorite part of the terrain etc.
Think outside the box, and build the game for the long haul is what I say..hee hee hee.
EAW or Falcon 4 anyone?
How long have people been playing those sims.
