One question that comes to mind is will saves be compatible? We have to make sure we are using the same versions of the game.
Also, about the "rules": so we want to use the Brikwarriors for laughs. How many are we going to enlist (eventually) and whom? Is "superhuman" difficulty
6. I say we start with the regular posters/awesome people and the recruits with particularly bad stats are going to be the wannabe trolls and retards we have. Then we let them die horribly.
7. You tell me about the difficulty. I only ever played on "normal" and winning there is just a question of time and patience - unless you are super stupid.
8. Let's play with permadeath and without S.O.S. (save early, save often) tactics, which means no reloading when a battle goes bad.
MGB, you are in.
I want to play Terror from the Deep.
Save games are compatible across the board so you won't have to worry about issues there
My list of "Squad members" consisted of -
8. Almighty Benny
9. IV Horseman
11. my floppy penis
After anyone died - I was adding a I for each time they died and named a new rookie after them - winner would be the longest survivor -OR- the one with the least amount of deaths by the end of the game.
As for Difficulty - Superhuman is HARD AS BALLS - it is a serious uphill challenge but worth it if you can complete it - I have only done so once, and that was a long time ago.
As for permadeath - I was only going to save at the end of my month and then pass the save along - As I said above, naming a new rookie after each fallen brikwarrior and count who has died the least by the end of the game to decide upon the "Winner" and wasn't going to reload if shit went to hell - we deal with our own mess regardless of what it gets us into.
As for my "ragequit" last night - I have major technical hurdles to overcome with my recording setup for reasons mortal minds cannot explain, and then other issues to fix with my sound and keyboard, both of which turned OFF after half an hour of recording that vanished into the ether (as in, not recorded AT ALL) and then another half hour with no sound, no microphone and no keyboard.
As for Terror from the Deep - I am cool with this - but I was hoping to carry the same troops over from Enemy Unknown INTO Terror from the Deep (I have a save game editor that allows me to do so) once Enemy Unknown was finished (with cydonia and shit) and then see if the winner could keep their post - or die horribly.
BUT - TFTD is cool too.
