I've done some experimentation, and come up with a new game type. It's more complicated than the existing RTS style, but I think in the right setting it could work. My apologies for the long explanation. There are several nodes. (In my test there were 9, I wouldn't recommend any more than this). They are arranged in a 3x3 grid, each one connected to those next to it. O=O=O || || || O=O=O || || || O=O=O NF start in one corner, and BE start opposite. Nodes can only be captured if they neighbour a node belonging to that team. So, NF could capture north or west, but not north-east. Once north was captured, they could then go on to capture north-east or centre. Once all the neutral nodes have been taken, a natural front line is created, so conflict should be much more focused. If a node becomes fully protected (if all surrounding nodes are captured by the same team) then a force-field goes up around it. Currently this is just a visual effect, but it wouldn't be too hard to make it an artillery shield or something more functional. Of course, if a neighbouring node is captured by another team, this protection is lost. Owning a node means that it will provide you with health and ammo, but no resources or spawn points. These are gained through building the usual structures. The main advantage is that once one team owns all the nodes, they win. Of course, all the other normal win conditions also apply. (You're far more likely to win by destroying the comm than you are capturing every node). I have a working model, containing all the entities required, and a basic layout. It's by no means a playable level, and probably never will be: the main point of it is to showcase this new game type. So if anyone's interested, or thinks this would make a fun game, just drop your comments below. If there's a positive response, then I'll do some more work to make the map releasable. If anyone thinks this would be good for a level they are designing, then I'll make the VMF publicly available (warning: it's very entity heavy).
