Small suggestion for 1.08/9/2.0
« on: August 11, 2001, 02:36:00 PM »
Just kinda had a thought while playing this afternoon and thought I'd air it.  It relates to GVs and bases.

Every base I was ever stationed at had fences.  Some even had some obstacles, as you see at most bases now, to counter terrorist threats...baricades and such.

As we have it now, once a GV is at a base, its only real obstacles are ACKS and that's it.  There are no anti-tank barricades they need to destroy, much the same for LVTs when landing from sea.

I just think it might be a neat idea to have something that impedes the GVs as they storm a base.  Right now, once the acks are down, in they come.

Just an idea....thoughts?

Also...as far as obstacles, I was thinking not only barricades, but minefields, etc...this way LVTs/M3s would really need support to get through them, like tanks/jabos blasting away at the mines, etc..

Just saw a big to do about D-Day, that's what brings this all to mind   :)

I think it is a good idea BD5.  However- I also feel that the Anti-AIRCRAFT guns are entirely to effective against ground vehicles.  I can see (maybe) why you'd want psychic flak that instantly started firing when planes got near the field (only enemy planes though, no friendly fire in AH for some reason)- but I think that GVs should be able to sneak onto a base using terrain and buildings as cover from the gun.  As it stands now, I've actually been shot THROUGH hills when trying to get a GV onto an enemy base.

Good idea as long as ack isn't so damn efficient in killing gvs.  :)

Good points.  I've just seen our bases rolled over many times, and think its kinda odd that once acks are down, here they come!  It seems rather easy to take down a base, despite the staggering of the hangars and such.
