Alien swarm. rpg or something like it

I was just curious. these new maps behomoth tourney & others.

In which the weapons are limited. well i had alot of ideas about this.
So, dissallowe say all equpitment exept pistols(example) and then pick up the offending weapons ingame. if this can be done then an rpg type of map can be made, say you start with just torches or even better nightvision. in the start of the map there is say 2 rifles no nades in em 96 rouns and 1 clip. and lost of booby traps etc. and it would go on like that. so you'd get to rooms and have to distribute weapons etc, and well i can see it beibng fun.

Sounds kinda fun but with 8 people playing at once it could go a bit hectic in a smaller area.

Sounds like a fun idea for a mutator. Maybe you can convince PestControl to get working on it

Reminds me of the Trial maps. Could be fun if the map was good, etc.

i've had this idea for a long time now, but im not a mapper, it would be nice though if you had to share all the equiptment, one benifit is that you could give ppl like 5 rounds per bug or something, obviously make it possible on insane, so you get twice what you need on insane to kill a bug for every bug on each phase of a map, ammo wasters would get no where, and when it comes to choices, you could have armoury up, medical down, computer core left, etc and it would make an armoury worth captureing

The idea was many times presented in this forum, but nothing really playable was given...

b) There's a search function.

Since i've already written most of an RPG mod once (and a UT>SQL interface over tcp/ip, heh), merging that with ASw was one of the first things i thought about when i played the game. You'd need unique characters though that improve slowly over time, and still keep it fun in multiplay for everyone. That's not exactly easy to do. I couldn't think of a simple way to get the gameplay right, but i didn't think of it much anyway.

It's an amount of work i'd rather not start on right now, also considering alienswarm is not exactly big.

"I have a mod idea! Needed: Coder, modeler..." And a hell of a long list...And in the end "I don't know how to do any of these"

Of course there is the BUG that causes *No items taken* become a *Last rounds weapons taken*, thus ruining the whole idea of the map...

BCG, hurry up with that 1.3 will ya'
