    Something to speed it up and make it end, some signs with directions to objectives and imho no turret placement allowed.

    boats would probably work well actually - a bit more mobility. Getting sniped on those walkways sucks

    Add ticket bleed to major flags, not minor flags, those are easier to hold than major flags due to having only 2 entries and harder to take for those entries require long uncovered routs to be taken. Fix the windows and doors, generally every access to buildings. (Steve said something about broken drawdistance I think)

    Add some ways for attackers to get to major flags easier. Atm who caps the middle major flag keeps it the entire game because all the entryways favor the defender about ten times. (You are in my stairhouse? lol I just drop grenades in and they will dependably kill any enemy inside.)

    Either reduce the size of the capturepoints and disallow building turrets around them to force the attackers to secure the room or increase the size of the capturepoints to fill the entire rooms.
    At the same time shorten the conquesting (neutralizing) time to prevent spawns in the vicinity and increase the capturing time.

    can you make 2 capture zones attached to a single flag? it might be interesting to have the neutralizing area larger and/or in a different space then the actual capture area.
    but then youd need extra, detached, always active spawns or the map would be over pretty soon bc of no spawnpoints ...

    Yeah, but do you remember the guided Sentinel rockets you could fire with the TV on them? You'd fire them out of the Gondolas, go into that building near the top and guide the rocket down the stairs if you got really good at it. Plus, you could jump on the roof of the Gondolas and get onto the spires and shit.

    Harry, you can see where this is going.

    so... your not good with coming up with gimmicky stuff? If you can make fucking flying ships/blimps in an empires that isn't supposed to have flying shit, you can make TV guided rockets. Stop being lazy and get to work.... please?

    He has a point Harry. Honestly, I asked you for boats and you gave me those jeep hackjobs. I expect better this time. Mounted, TV Missile launchers.

    well you know... why not do this.
    Use the same setup that you do for the flying ships. Drive a missile like you do the flying ships.

    Have two ships in water in parallel to each other only firing player controlled missiles at each other. Fun times for all. Hell im sure you can even find a way to make gun turrets for the ships by using arty tank controls. Give the ships some ridiculously huge amount of HP and of course add spawning jeep-boats so the teams can raid the opponents ship.

    Ok, I think I figured out a way to make TV guided exploding projectiles.
    Are you guys serious about this?

    Can you mount the launchers onto the Gondolas? Are they mouse controllable or keyboard? Can you make them travel fast so they're hard to use?

    It has to be as similar to the 007 Nightfire sentinel as possible.
