Well, I've been working on 3 player powers recently(1 per faction) and once I get them working as I want them, I'll take a few videos of them.

But I also want some more idea for new player powers. These will be unlocked in a similar fashion as Tiberium Wars and Kane's Wrath powers. But you will only get them from a few buildings. These are Airfields, Tech 2 structures, and Research Facilities. You will get 1 or two per building.

The three powers that I am currently working on are simple. The Allies have a bombing run, Soviets are getting a Vehicle Drop, and the Empire is getting an Offshore Bombardment power.

I'm doing them one at a time right now, but have a basis with which to start the code. The names should be pretty sufficient at describing what they do and are for.

But on to the main point, as I stated before, I'm in need of ideas. Throw whatever you have at me, I'm sure I could put anything to use with my map scripting ability(if only I could map as well as I script maps).

Any ideas are appreciated.

Elite infantry division for Allies? At tech structure, deploys elite infantry units to location by copter or other means

I've reported it.
And have tried 5 more times anyways.
I'm pro-trolling that mod.

Field training centres? tongue.gif
When you send a unit inside it comes out with +1 rank of veterany? (Probably not-codable though)

I played a RA2 mod once which had a feature like training centres. You sent a unit in and in came out with elite veterancy. Uber OP

Not if you put some kind of limit on it... like after 3 units it self destructs.
Or it deploys at a random location on the map and you and the enemy have to locate it

The entire idea of the training center is impossible, especially the self-destruct one XD.gif

Sorry about that though, it's an interesting idea. Although, I could code a special power that grants units in an area a veterancy level up smile.gif

Although, I think that would be better as a faction wide power gained at Tier 4 tongue.gif

Uh, perhaps a power to instantly control units in an area fpr allies. It costs no credits. However, it has a long recharge time. Heroes cannot be turned.
Another one would be system hack. It could call upon a random power. However, it costs money (How are you going to pay the hackers?) and it has a long rechargge time.

I am strongly against mind control powers, and a random power would just get redundant(especially since powers are done in a few different ways, they aren't always click->target) and would be really hard to code.

So you are taking the bribe ability away from the spy? Another idea, perhaps a chrono wave. The unit called upon could be any ground vehicle. It could be a weak civilian car (Can hold 5 infantry), to a sneaky school bus (Idea from RA2, Can transport 100 infantry sneakly through defences) to a damaging acopalypse tank.
