Underwater Battles
 
I was just wondering if everyone thinks underwater battles are a good idea. I like the idea of it. Like it could be underwater on Naboo and the CIS could be attcking the Gungan City, so there would be some dry land fighting also.

GeneralPloKoon 09-24-2008 08:19 PM

I'd like it, I remember on the Clone Wars cartoon on Mon Calamari the space battle. But not very many levels though.

Darth Eclipse 09-24-2008 08:50 PM

Yeah, I REALLY hope they have at least a few underwater battles.

M@RS 09-24-2008 11:25 PM

I think this is a great idea... I'd love to have an underwater battle, and I'd like to be able to swim this time... That's one thing that bothers me in SWBF2, you can't swim... You just walk at the bottom and drown...

Darth Eclipse 09-25-2008 07:45 AM

Yeah, but the CIS shouldn't be able to go anywhere underwater besides in a vehicle and inside whatever other base is underwater.

Bokken 09-25-2008 12:18 PM

The CIS already don't drown or suffocate. There should be a special class that can go outside of bases, but only that one class.

Uh, wrong? Any unit (except droidekas - possibly, because of a special droideka-only parameter) takes damage underwater. And there's no such thing as "suffocation" - Polis Massa just has a damage region set up so that droid healthtypes don't take damage.

But I for one would love to see some real water - right now all we have is a glorified hardcoded damage region.

I think at Gametoast there's and underwater battle map you can download. I tried it out and thought is was good, but the jetpacks don't work well for some reason.

LordOfTheFish 09-26-2008 04:46 PM

Nice idea DE. I would play it.

Are you serious?



M@RS: I'll visit the site again, soon.

Last time I checked, if the Clone Wars cartoon was canon, droids don't suffocate underwater...

Thank You :D

Ping 09-27-2008 12:34 PM

Okay, since one of you guys asked for a link this is the download location here

Scoll down and click on the link to download. Have fun!

Darth Eclipse 09-27-2008 10:14 PM

I wish I could play it. I have it for Xbox...

GeneralPloKoon 09-28-2008 01:32 PM

Is that for BF2?

Ping 09-28-2008 03:03 PM

If it wasn't for BF2, I'd say it. Since I didn't say that, it is for BF2.

Oh yeah, how do you guys like the map?

M@RS 09-28-2008 03:23 PM

It's nice, but the jetpacks aren't very good... It wasn't how I thought it'd be, but it's still fun :p

Ping 09-29-2008 09:24 PM

I know how you feel about the jetpacks - maybe they short circuit underwater :lol:. I also think that cp 1 (I think) is not capturable; I think the creator did this so there would be Quarren to fight (since the Quarren spawn from there).

Darth Eclipse 09-30-2008 08:43 PM

Are there any videos on Youtube that show that map? It sounds pretty cool...I really wish I could play it...

LordOfTheFish 09-30-2008 09:38 PM

Please, don't rub it in...

M@RS 09-30-2008 09:52 PM

^ What are you talking about?

Darth Eclipse 10-01-2008 07:04 PM

Yeah, really...What ARE you talking about???

LordOfTheFish 10-03-2008 11:12 PM

Please don't rub in the fact that you guys have live (or you just play the pc version) and I don't.

Darth Eclipse 10-04-2008 05:46 PM

I only have the Xbox Star Wars Battlefront. I sold my Xbox and now have an Xbox 360. I HAVE a good PC, I just don't have many PC games.

Theone Thewayne 10-05-2008 01:24 PM

I think the underwater lvls should be like a spacebattle in BFII.

LordOfTheFish 10-05-2008 02:27 PM

You mean like when Obi and Qui-gon go to the planet core on Naboo?

what, slow, empty feeling and completely reliant on bombers?

LordOfTheFish 10-05-2008 07:12 PM

Water gets shallow, why would it have to be in only deep water? What if a land level had an area where you fought underwater.

GeneralPloKoon 10-06-2008 07:51 PM

Such as Mon Calamari! Republic starts on the Cruisers on the surface and the CIS are in the Quarren outpost.

LordOfTheFish 10-07-2008 05:07 PM

Precisely what I meant. Kinda like that episode of the original Clone Wars TV series.

Darth Eclipse 10-10-2008 07:06 PM

I will be even more happy to buy SWBF III if it has underwater battles, that would be so cool!!!

I was talking about a game mechanic, not about what showed up in a TV show.

Theone Thewayne 11-24-2008 07:47 AM

What I mean is two giant command posts and underwater vehicles who are generelly fighting each other. Maybe you could add some underwater tunnels for some man to man combat...

Darth Eclipse 02-20-2009 10:09 AM

I'll be happy if Star Wars Battlefront III at least comes out...

Kit Fisto would have to be the republic hero obviously. Also there could have scuba-troopers, which would be awesome!!

M@RS 02-22-2009 12:09 AM

I'd like scuba-troopers... :D That'd be awesome... :)

Real quick in your sig... It gives a link and says to sign up to give you points? What can you do with those points?

LordOfTheFish 02-22-2009 12:56 AM

Gawd people are getting bad at bumping these days... I had no idea anyone still cared about this idea.

Redtech 02-25-2009 06:02 PM

Ain't a fan of it TBH, BF1 had the K.I.S.S principle. Fighting in 3 dimensions would just overcomplicate matters!
