Pick-up stacking

Postby nakano » Sun Jan 10, 2016 3:24 am

Not sure whether pick-up stacking was officially planned feature OR if upgrades are a way to enhance the cars in the Career mode, but still stacking is worth of thinking.

First if you have one weapon already, it's possible that it stacks or you get a second weapon. If you have both weapon slots reserved, one of those does stack if you pick up any weapon AND if the weapon has still room left for stacking. Rough ideas for weapon stacking:

Targeting Missiles:
* 1st: launches 2 missiles at the same time
* 2nd: ... 4 missiles ...
* 3rd: ... 6 missiles ...

Mines:
* 1st-2nd: 1 extra mine

Machine Gun:
* 1st-2nd: 1 extra barrel

Leader Rocket:
* 1st: Target the car currently in first.
* 2nd: As 1st + the second missile targets the car currently in second.

Driller missiles (if added later):
* 1st-2nd: 1 extra driller missiles
OR
* 1st-3rd: First rocket fires straight ahead, second at 35 angle left and third 35 angle right at a single shot.

Shield:
* 1st: Rear shield
* 2nd: Front shield
* 3rd: Turns activated rear and front shield into an offensive shield which can be used to ram opponents. (can be stacked later even if you have already activated one shield). Depending on how things are implemented, this feature could also be an upgrade in career mode. Binding this into a shield wouldn't necessarily need a new weapon type for similar effect, though.

Turbo boost: Non-stackable.

The concept of stacking weapons is nice, but it would feel totally overpowered, wouldn't it?

It depends. I listed a few what Chris had listed in "Poll: What kinds of pick-ups would you like to see in Grip?". Maybe stacking weapons for extra shot is kind of overpowered. Thus I first thought that Machine Gun stacking would mean longer duration, but I kind of like the current duration. Stacking of extra targeting missiles doesn't sound too bad if everything is fired at once.

The major problem of stacking is that it makes it a lot easier to deny pick-ups to those who are directly behind you.

If there is no stacking, you have to make the choice between firing them now so that you pick two new pick-ups, or let your opponent take them.
If there is stacking, this choice is irrelevant, since you can just stack and deny without losing any power-ups.

What Potty said, you can just hoard pickups/deny them, same problem that pickup dumping can lead to.
also its really hard to balance as like you said 4 or 6 missile would make a single target fly to the moon or if its multiple enemys at once it would be way to easy to clean up in front of you or make tunnels hell with multiple mines layed down.

I'd rather have a single level pickup thats made for one specific purpose and you as a player have to work with what you got.

We did intend to have upgradable pickups (discussed in the forum a few times), but potty makes a really good point, in that it really caters to the players in front.

Apart from the shield (which will be upgradeable to have both front and back) I think stacking would be good in Arena mode more than racing.

And we already have variants of the missile implemented internally for testing. Level 1 is 1 missile, 2 is 2 and 3 is 3. Like I said, this would work well in Arena more than race

I agree with potterman28wxcv. Maybe limiting the stacking to shield is the best (if you pick up the second shield, then you can activate the front shield). Every mechanisms should probably work similarly in all modes, thus I would say so no weapon stacking in Arena either (well could be a variant - possible offline only).

Maybe the best place to keep "advanced weapons" (if kept) would be left for the offline Career mode. There you could upgrade your car with won money. For example, buying an upgrade to be able to shoot 1 more rocket (upgrades don't have to be seen on car) or then just be limited to "skin" upgrades.

Cool mock-ups Queadah ;)

We already have the 2 or 3 missile stack in the game. Just need to get the other pickups ready.

Your assassin idea is certainly interesting
