Monster (NPC) faction
« on: May 16, 2020, 09:51:32 am »
Another ideia from "dont starve together" is to add npc factions. For example. Animals would be a neutral/agressive faction, alliens could be agressive faction that work in gang during the night and assault players bases and fight with Animals faction too, and maybe we could add a third faction that could fight all other faction + players too. Another ideia at late game is that you can earn affinity with one of those faction and this faction will became neutral to you or help you.
This group npc assault could be a good challenge at PvE servers and a lot more at PvP server too, ppl will have to make wall and defences at base (at PvE) and protect then selfs and their bases during the night against npc. At PvE for example, what is the point of creat strong weapows like laser and granade launcher just to fight pigs? i know that nowadays we can use those weapows at queen only that worth it, but usually ppl dont use those weapows at queen, they use mech.

Hello!

Yes, we're considering this idea. But first, we need to implement an advanced AI with pathfinding. It will open a lot of possibilities regarding the AI combat and greatly improve the PvE gameplay. The idea with a humanoid-like aliens with armor and blasters (technically, it would be a native life form as this is a colony planet terraformed by future humanity :) ) may bring a whole new level of challange in the game.

Regards!

Would be nice or something like this:

They could move at band at night like an offen event, damage constructions and doing some damage to weak wall too, like wood. Allien = fast speedy and acid attack (maybe 1 especial range attack with delay and the rest melee)
That new factions would attack animals too?
Humanoid-like aliens would be nice like a third faction doing a heavy defence at some ruins + good loot.
Just some ideias, but any plus challenge will be incredible.
