1. Okay, so i was thinking, what if we had some different game modes? Like CTF, Tag, and one where one person tries to hold on to a ball, or an object, and everyone else, even people on his team try to kill him. The longer you hold the ball, the more points you get. You could use this by doing like /callvote gamemode CTF; Tag; etc. We could still have TD, but spice it up.

2. So i have been looking, and i don't see hardly any things about flying aliens. This gets really annoying because humans just jettard the open maps, and it makes it impossible for aliens to win, (Unless we have a really good advdrag or something) so i was thinking, like what rota said, a kind of vampire bat, or something like this:http://img32.imageshack.us/img32/5951/alienfly2.jpg, but smaller. I also think that it should be able to wallcrawl, or atleast grip the wall for a set amount of seconds, so that my next idea could maybe be implemented.

3. My last idea is a cool one. What if we could have certain aliens be like the basilisk, and grab on to humans? Kind of like a leech, but they could drop on to him. The human could still move back and forth, and look around, not impeding his movement at all, but while it was attached it would drain the life force, like 5hp every 2 seconds. You could get it off by mashing the spacebar, or having a teammate shoot it off, or something. Higher upgrades = More damage in less seconds, like 7hp every second? It would have to be untargetable to turrets while it was attached, or have it hurt the human while it was shooting it. I was thinking 75-100 hp, for the norm and adv guys.

Thanks for reading my ideas!

1. Meh. With strafe jumping allowed and with me on aliens, aliens will always win. That is if this game somehow duplicates exactly of tremulous gameplay physics.
2. There's already a flying alien planned. Also, that picture, isn't that a modification of the "alien" from the movie "Alien"?
3. Look up "jockey" from Left 4 Dead 2 on youtube. It's pretty much the same thing, except there aren't any automatic turrets in l4d.
Also, what loki said.

Therefore, Tremulous 2 might have the future (or might not, since it isn't developed by a corporations, depends on what Global Government will decide), but Unvarnished doesn't.

Sucks to be those Unvarnished guys.

1. I am not sure, if CTF is good for this type of game, where aliens are fast and humans are slow = they have no chance.

3. We will experiment with climbing on players, so we will see what happen :) Personally I think that such feature can be fun, but overpovered. Tremulous is often mess and you will not notice that someone is on your back.

If made like real life: Spitting granger riding on the head of a tyrant, or two humans piggy-backing. Give humans a goon to ride as a horse and turn it into a giant Lord of the Rings scene, and many will buy.  :D
Now you see me...now you don't...headshot

Not only me tried to code this in old Tremulous, but we all failed, due to old engine.

We will see, if it will be possible in the new engine - but still, there is question if it can be used in a serious gameplay.

It's for fun gameplay of course. I mean, maybe we will even get to pick up grangers...and throw them like in American football.  :D :D :D
