    Lightbulb New Total War Game!: Your Suggestions!

    I reckon a Total War game called Total War: Timelords would be good. You play as a small tribe any where in the world and can go right into the futre. (Did i spell futre right?)
    Possible weapons/units:
    Right from the start you could have men with bones or spikes attached to thier fists(sorta like stone age knukledusters!)
    When you get to say 2150 you can have cyanide bullet guns: as soon as they pierce the skin they release cyanide, so even if the bullet misses the one hit kill area(head,neck,heart,lungs,etc.) theyll still kill the guy!

    What do you think?

    Welcome to the Org Sam!

    Sounds like an interesting idea. The trouble is that the game might last too long (several thousand turns, from pre-Christ to the future, would be too long).

    Hello, Sam, The Subduer of Rebels to our wonderful community!!

    We here are a small(not quite, 11500 members is not small) and peaceful community which disputes over the next TW game....

    Is it RTW2? Is it MTW2? Is it STW2?

    Everyone says their opinion, but it's a 50%-40% between RTW and MTW, 10% going to STW....
    Ja mata, TosaInu. You will forever be remembered.

    Proud

    Been to:

    Swords Made of Letters - 1938. The war is looming in France - and Alexandre Reythier does not have much time left to protect his country. A novel set before the war.

    A Painted Shield of Honour - 1313. Templar Knights in France are in grave danger. Can they be saved?

    I really don't know, I like MTW and current mods so much, I can't think of anything..

    How about MTW 1099-1264 only Middle East, Egypt and Syria? You know, the exact story of the Crusades? Antioch, Edessa, Tripoly, Jerusalem, Akra, Damaskus, Hama,Homs,Alep, Mossul, Cairo? The pProvinces, the cities, the castles, arabs, turks, francs, byzantines?

    HOw about a modern TW say Spanish-American War/ Franco-Prussian War/ Crimean War onwards through the cold war instead of Early, High and Late, have Victorian, World Wars, and Nuclear Ages. Or you could pick up as early as where the N:TW leaves off.

    I think you need to work on the fine line between realism and playability. It would be fun to play the part of a tribal leader who founds an empire and this empire goes off to conquer the world or something, but this would mean you would have to start very small and work your way up to controlling 1000s of provinces in one turn. Which would put a lot of people off.

    An idea would be to play the game in stages. You start off as a bunch of wanderring nomads who have just settled down and you smack some heads together and become the chieftan of a group of villages and you win this regional round. A map coverring an area 50 miles squared or so.

    The next round is a national round, sort of on the scale of Viking Invasion or shogun total war, where you play battles on a game screen modified from the last one, so units are larger and you play on a larger map. Perhaps making the units stupider so the computer can have 10000s of units on one screen. Once you've founded your kingdom you can join in the continental screen, something like the european campaign map and once you've won on this map you can go to the continental map, where you conquer the rest of the world.

    Maybe you could even have the entire game running at once, so for instance you could be the celtic iceni tribe and the romans invade your little world who in the past 500 years have enterred the 3rd stage, whilst you are still in the 2nd stage.

    There could even be glory goals or something, different ways of winning that speed up your transition from chieftan to warlord to emperor, but put you at a disadvantage when you finally shift up.

    Maybe even, consider you are the romans in the as before said scenario, you as an emperor can take control over warlords in a region and influence their little country sized world instead of conquerring them. As the romans did bribe tribes against each other and made a profit.

    These ideas are there to make the game in depth without increasing the complexity for the average ADD player.

    I would like to see a mod that goes past 1453 and includes the rise of Tamerlane.I only just found out about his defeat of the Turks in 1404 ? and how the Ottoman Empire took some time off to fight amongst itself thus giving the doomed Byzantines another 50 years.So basically it would be like the Mongols emerging in the original mtw.The Blind King was working on a mod called Eastern Promise that includes all this but i dont know how thats going.

    My vote (like many other people I think) is for a sort of Total War: The Conquers ( of course I am to the AOE 2 name, but you know what I mean an 1500-1800 period game is what I would like to see, with navil battles

    1. Dawn of man: 3100-1600 bc;
    Battle it out as ancient Egypt, Sumer and onther tribes as you forge your kingdom. From Greece to India and the Black Sea to Nubia.

    2. Empires: 1600-300bc;
    Egypt, Hittite, Mitanni, Babylonia, Assyria, Mycenaean kingdoms, Minoan, Judah, Phoenicians, Media, Persia, India etc. Same map as above.

    3. Colonization: 1492-1818ad.
    A copy of Europa Universalis II. Play any nation in the world. Game map, the whole world. Beside landbattles, detailed naval battles can be fought too. I also would like to see an add-on playing out the whole colonisation of N.America, from initial colonisation in 16th century to the war of independece.

    4. China: 250bc-220ad;
    Covers both the Qin- and Han-periods. Other timeperiods in China´s history are also very interesting.
    Add-on to this mod: Shogun, ofcourse! Going back to the TW-roots.

    Bronze age: Total War
    Play as minoans, hittities etc, plus pharaonic Egypt like in RTW
    (I'm not a history freak, so I'm not sure if this will be workable)

    Polis: total war
    Play as a Greek city state, battling naturally other city states. Diplomacy should probably be more refined for this game. In the TW tradition, give it an X pack called Macedonian invasion ;)

    Viking invasion
    Already an X pack for Medieval, but I think the period is interesting enough for a a stand alone game.

    A personal dream of mine is to fuse the games Stronghold (original- haven't played the sequel yet) and Total war- build your own castles as effectively as you can design them, and defend them from attacks from AI players on the campaign map.

    My guesses would be either

    a) Ancient China (with a focus on the Warring States)

    b) Dark Ages : Total War (Perhaps to continue from where BI leaves off?)

    c) A new look at Medieval.


    Under no circumstances do I want or believe total war to go past the 17th century. Pike & Musket in general / Napoleonics? Not really my cup of tea. Sure, they could make it work, but still....it just doesn´t seem Total War-ish. Luckily they have confirmed that the next game will not be about the wars of Napoleon.
    ACW is more interesting to me (and yes, I´m European, funnily enough - seems like everyone I know (of my countrymen) care little for Napoleonics but are at least somewhat interested in the ACW....oh well), but the same goes for it too.
    The World Wars are right out - they are just not fought the Total War way at all.

    Anyway, the best option in my mind would be China, of course. I am sure CA would be interested in making such a game, as well. The real issue is - would it interest the generic game player in the same way as a game with a familiar, European setting?

    How about simply Egypt: Total War.

    Think about it. Before 3100 BC, Egypt was not a unified country and it was just a bunch of small kingdoms and other independant districts. Narmer, the so called Scorpion King, managed to unify them all after a series of wars.

    We could make a game about that... and since Egypt wasn't in the Bronze age at that time, we could have units armed with copper and stone weapons. Whadda think, guys?

    How about the whole world? It starts in first period of M:TW (or whatever the exact year is).

    Any of these sound interesting, but especially the early empires mentioned in point 2. The Hittites had a supposedly fearsome reputation, the Minoans were masters of the seas due to their strongholds on and around Crete, the infamous Assyrian chariot riders etc. I've read somewhere that phalanx tactics were used in some epic battles by some of these armies of the time, although which ones I'm not too sure about.

    It would be good to see this as a completely new TW game, although a well-supported mod would do probably do just as good a job.

    Just ask Koei what kind of interest the region has. Apparently they are up to RotTK:X (10). I say hell ya. It might be interesting what kind of competition this game would give the RotTK series.

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...10350?v=glance

    Product Description
    The tenth installment in Koei’s Romance of the Three Kingdoms strategy game series, Romance of the Three Kingdoms X begins when the beleaguered Chinese empire falls victim to a rebellious plot, and continues through over one hundred years of civil war. As players progress through history, their game world grows and develops based on achievements, skills and strategies. Detailed tutorials, a help function and convenient command explanations allow for trouble-free play.
    Is it just me, or could this easily be done in the Total War series. In addition, you also have an established fanbase that might be interested in it.

    I continually get annoyed by the limited tilt. We almost need 90 degree tilt down from level (so you can get an overhead view), while atleast 45 degree tilt up (otherwise you're looking at the clouds and not much use. Is there any way to mod this?
