Urban Conquest

by
tvig0r0us


Description:
Instability has finally erupted into an all out battle for control of the city streets where all sides come ready to fight and scorched earth is a viable option. It's up to you to pull together a team and lead them to the ultimate victory... TOTAL ANNIHILATION OF THE ENEMY! With total freedom, how you approach your mission is entirely up to you. Take control of any vehicle, recruit soldiers or go it alone, there are no rules other than get it done. Urban Conquest is a fast paced, action packed urban engagement where the enemy could be lurking around any corner, so watch your back and stay frosty soldier.

    What do the markers on the map mean?:
    Blue = West CP - totally controlled by the west with no enemies in the area
    Red = East CP - totally controlled by the east with no enemies in the area
    Green = Resistance CP - totally controlled by the resistance with no enemies in the area
    White = Neutral CP - controlled by no one with no troops of any kind in the area
    Yellow = Contested CP - this means that there are multiple teams in the area fighting for control of the CP

    Spawns only occur at control points that are controlled by the corresponding team... if a CP is contested, no spawning will occur there until one of the teams takes control of the point.
    A winner is decided when one of the teams snuffs out all of the opposition. If your team has no control points when you die, you will be automatically switched to the remaining team with the least amount of control points and carry on the battle with that team. This does not necessarily mean your original team is completely out of the game. If there were troops alive from your original team they can still take control of a CP, but as for you, they are now your enemy.


    Known issues:
    - Soldiers dismissed after getting out of a vehicle do not always resume their normal routines.
    - There is the possibility for the AI soldiers to get stuck inside of destroyed buildings if the city gets too wrecked.


    To do list:
    - Nothing else planned

  • Credits & thanks:
    Special thanks to Zone Killer for getting me off on the right foot with the scripting language for this game.... it's waaaaay different from lua and took some getting used to. It would have taken alot longer without his assistance.
