Exclamation Unit idea.....

I was thinking about possible new units for GB...the coolest (and on of the only) ideas ive had is a Negotiator...in ways like a missionary. he rides a horse to the enemies base but isnt fired on, like a preset in the game not to kill them, cause there nuetral atuomatcially..and when they get there they ask for a alliance or neutrality and the player reponds to it. just a wild idea i guess....any feedback?

Or you could hit enter (chat) and type: 'Set thyself Neutral to me, and I will be Neutral to thee'

but there still be many miles to go

Better than rain or rippling brook

i think it's a great idea, but it would of course have to be a 3po protocol droid..
think about what he would say if someone refused an alliance...

"Was it something i said ? Sometimes i just don't understand human behavior.."

Perhaps it could be used to allow you to build allied tek?

Thumbs down

bad idea it would be stupid to waste time animating something like that coz all you have to do is press enter and ask for an alliance and it happens for free

i know, i know.. but we're talking 'atmosphere' here..
don't you think you'll go "Look ! There's an ATAT !" "Look ! There's Vader !" "Look ! There's...."
That's atmosphere. It's creating graphics to have that recognition-effect. which in turn enhances your gaming pleasure.

Yeah, those things are pointless. I never used them either.


Thrawn's Driving Theories

1. Green light means go. Yellow light means go faster. Red light means you didn't go fast enough.
2. If you don't like the way I drive, stay off the road. . . and the sidewalk. . . heck don't come outside.
3. I'm going to drive really, really fast. That way I'll pass all the scenes of the accidents before they even happen!
4. Real men don't need brakes.
5. If other cars can't feel your CD playing, it's not loud enough.

Motto: As far as I can, as fast as I can, as loud as i can.

They would just get shot to little pieces all the time. Not worth the money to build them.

Each time i play with friends I allways use the trade carts or boats. It brings you large ammounts of money.

However Enemble (creators of AoE and AoK) made it so that if you build your trade center right next to your allies trade center, you get allmost nothing. Sorta like, the farther you are, the more value you have with each trades.
