i highly dout it but will you be able to blow up a brige to stop troops.

It probally won't be there, but that would be wicked cool. well, they might cross the water. If they do that, they better have slower moving in the water, beacuse if not blowing up the bridge will have absoulely no effect.

It's possible, though I would question the neccesity of including it. I mean at our technology level the reliance on bridges to facilitate troop movements is all but nonexistent, hell the Army Corps of Engineers can layout a temporary bridge in a matter of minutes. I really can't see it being a oft used tactic in the Star Wars Universe, but eh who knows...

that would be really cool. The what if you had to have a pilot or someone to fix the bridge, giving the other side more time. I doubt it will be included, though.

Who says that a bridge has to cross water? It can just as well cross a chasm, in which case it becomes extremely important - unless your troops can fly.

It's true enough that with flying vehicles you can ship troops in - but there are times when it becomes too risky to enter a hot zone due to the risk of being shot down - which means it is more prudent to drop troops some distance away and make their way to the target on foot (or in a ground vehicle).

By the same token, a bridge can offer a potential route of escape for ground forces if air support is cut off.

So personally, I don't see why bridges would become automatically redundant. If there is a good enough scenario for using them in the game, then they should be there. And if they are there, then of course they should be destructable. There are a couple of Enemy Territory maps that require one side or the other to build a bridge to move a tank across - and it can lead to some intense battles.

ohhh blowing up a bridge across a chasm would be fun. the your pilot will place turrets on the other side to shoot down aircraft... fun fun fun.

BTW...I'm changing the title of the thread to reflect the content. Naming threads with 'Highly Doubt it' doesn't tell anyone what the thread is about. We'd appreciate it if thread-starters make the thread titles clearer. Thanks. :cool:

And just so people don't start threads about destructable toilets, feel free to discuss anything destructable in this thread. It makes things easier.

I dunno, I think that sounds preety cool, maybe if its part of an objective or somthing.

04-25-2004, 05:37 AM
it be nice to shot down trees, statues, etc. to fall down on opponents.

04-25-2004, 05:42 AM
They'll have that, man.

04-25-2004, 07:39 AM
Eh. To be honest, I do doubt that the enviroments will have anything destructiable about them with the exception of certain objective-based buildings/objects.

Battlefront is extremely similiar to the Battlefield games and they lacked any sort of free destructiable enviroments besides turrets and such.

Sounds Risky

That's supposed to change with Battlefield 2, so one would hope that Pandemic would work on that to keep up with the upcoming game.

How about the bridge gets blocked by lets say a AT-ST on endor that has been blown up.Any suggestions?

I would imagine if vehicles are totally destroyed, they will eventually vanish (like corpses) and respawn. Unless destroyed vehicles have to be repaired to use them again, in which case the team who wants the vehicle would have to repair it. That could lead to an intense firefight over 'ownership' - like the battles to keep the tank moving in Enemy Territory (Gold Rush and Fuel Dump maps).

I like the idea. I think that everything should be destroyable. So, one of the best things to do in a battle is destroy the enemy respawn centre. But really, terrain stuff like bridges is awesome. You can slow the advance until they get some airships to ferry people across with chasm maps, and troops have to wade slowly forwards with water maps. Funny.

Oh, and the trees and stuff should do damage when destroyed. Remember the logs in RoTJ? The AT-ST's destroyed trees, and Ewoks used trees to smash them to bits. Wooden warfare!

04-26-2004, 08:28 PM
Yeah destructible environment would be nice, maybe be used to some one's advantage. Like the ewoks as previously stated.

04-28-2004, 12:47 AM
I think blowing up bridges would be awesome, but i also think that the enviroment should be destructable only to certain point. Things like log traps set by ewoks on endor would either be spawned there or just be generated at the beginning of the game. But maybe it is possible that the ewoks will be able to make traps in the heat of combat. I just don't think it would be very good if entire buildings were being destroyed in a few shots from say, an AT-AT or AT-TE, it would get very laggy most likley from all the chunks of buildings laying all over the place. :jawa :jawa

chain reaction !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! that is what i want chain reactions fires spreading building exploding and at the end it will look like A REAL BATTLEFIED not one that has a few black marks and debris

I just hope you have the computer hardware to run that kind of game online with 32 persons playing...

04-28-2004, 07:37 PM
Yeah, that would get very very laggy. :jawa :jawa

You do realize I'm not talking about connection and OS?

I'm talking about processor, RAM, Video Card, sound card...
