Hello everyone, I'd like to first off say hello to this community. Many of you won't know me as I used to go by the name Tulgieth, I played Wasteland mostly and never used the forums, mostly a lurker. But I've been working on an idea and below I'll explain as much as my 5:00am morning brain can remember.. I'm making this post, in the hopes it grabs the attention of @LuckyB33f @Connor. @James32 @Red @Fitz @Lotza @jacob potty @M9' for something new and fresh, while maybe not a long term game-mode it could turn into one with a lot of replay value. My proposal is a game mode called "Predator". Yes it's exactly what it sounds like, a game mode based of the iconic movie.
The way the game would work, is there would be a total of 20-30 players, 1-4 Predators (with a load-out designed to replicate their advantage in the movie), 16-20 Survivors who only have an empty pistol with a flash light, and 1 player whom we would call "Arnold" He would spawn with a relatively simple load-out allowing him to assist the survivors but not totally threaten the Predator.
(no GPS or compass for the Survivors, Arnold could perhaps have a compass)
The game is set at night time (on the Tanoa map) with very thick fog, giving a challenging atmosphere, over time (roughly 30 minutes per game) the fog begins to clear to give you around 30-40m of clear viewing distance.
The end goal for the Predator is to kill all Survivors and Arnold, the end goal for the Survivors and Arnold is to escape the small island (Likely a scripted helicopter landing) The Survivors will be able to loot various areas for useful tools and small arms weapons to help fend of any Predators but this loot will be fairly rare.
If anyone from StrayaGaming would like this idea looked into by higher ups please make it known on the forums so maybe this could end up being a real thing. I would love to answer any questions and take ideas. Below I will post a few concept ideas, and various island designs I've been working on so far.
PS: This game mode would be totally vanilla using the Tanoa map, requiring no mods.
