CTF, TDM, KoTH, and Race
Submitted By WolfLink on 13/11/05
Mars Explorer, WolfLink, Feature Requests, Other 

First of all, I think it would be a good idea to add a "disallow flying" option in the settings.  This will ban jets and make it so buggies can't fly.  That way we can have flightless buggies so you can race without worrying about cheaters flying.  (I'm thinking GTR's desert right now)
 
 
Now, I think that Mars Explorer could really benefit from new game modes and certain maps designed for them. Maybe this would fit better on Syn3h forums, but it seems to me that Aubrey has abandoned that.  Anyway, here are the 4 main ideas:
 
CTF:
-At least one flag on each team, maybe more
-Red and blue teams
-Team colored nametag
-Ram into flag to capture it, buggy turns quarry green, nametag might have special marking.
-Take flag to designated spawn (it will look like a forcefield) to gain a point for your team
-when other team shoots player with flag, flag is returned to its original location
-friendly fire option
-maybe cars colored by team color, maybe choice
-possibly more than 2 teams
-only on maps designed for this (we already have some ctf maps though)
-Maps designed for CTF will also be playable in normal mode (one of the spawns is designated as the default for normal mode)
 
TDM:
-Red and Blue teams
-Maybe more
-respawn after taking a few hits (probably takes more hits than in normal Mars play)
-points for destroying others
-friendly fire option
-only maps with 2 spawns
-possibly more than 2 teams
-Also can use CTF designed maps
-TDM maps can be used in normal mode (designated default spawn, like CTF)
 
KoTH:
-Maybe some team option, but mainly individual
-no flying vehicles (buggy flight disabled.  Jets banned)
-Only on KoTH designated maps, with a designated game over area
-Of course KoTH maps also playable in normal mode
-We already have some KoTH designed maps
 
Race:
-Maybe some team option, but mainly individual
-Race maps have designated start, finish, checkpoints
-Certain vehicles may be banned for race mode on certain maps (example: no jets or flying buggies on GTR desert)
-Race maps can have multiple spawns for parellel racing (race on identical but separate tracks)
-We already have some maps designed for racing

Sounds pretty sweet. Racing would be a LOT more fun if peeps wouldnt cheat, no offense to those that do.

I think you all should make a new map for this!

That is a good idea, you wouldn't have to make new maps I don't think , Aubrey would have to put in more than one spawn point and base. This would be really awesome.

I disagree on the flying buggies in racing mode.  The wings are essential to making usre you can steer properly, especially in the off-road courses.  Of course, for those people that use the buggy to actually fly...
Kick 'em!
Kick 'em!
 
Other than that, I agree.  This would add a lot of fun to the game without sacrificing the point that there is no point.

sounds really cool... i agree with the above, flying should not be illegal in racing, for a couple of reasons, 1 it helps you steer, 2, when you fall off the edge, you have to fly, 3, it is slower than normal racing, so it makes sense that you should be allowed to fly.

You can fly to cheat.  And its harder to race without wings for steering (more like actual driving than... IDK weird driving with wings that dig into the ground and make you steer faster).
 
I think being able to ban buggy flying is a good idea as it removes the need for referees.

well, i know that technically you can take short cuts, but its sooo obvious that its lame... so just ban that person, you need it, cuz on like GTR Desert, you will fall off the edge, i can guarantee you that.

It is possible to beat the gtr desert map without buggy wings.  It's not even that hard, you just have to be more careful.
