The Matrix for Civ3... Ok, here's where this idea comes from. I was thinking about the scenerios here and to my knowledge, there aren't any that are made specifically for one of the new play types in PTW, so I thought why not make one? And what better theme then The Matrix (Ok so I lie, I couldn't think of anyother way for this to work ). Here's my idea. Four "civilizations" and each "tech" be an event, each era be a chapter. This is what I've come up with so far: The four civilizations: Man (strong to begin with, but basically gets pumeled in the endgame) Rebels (middle man for most of the game, but then you get Neo at the end...) Co-Existors (get both man and machine units) Machines (opposite of humans, weak in the begining, but when AI rolles around...) The Eras: Start is the Modern Age. You go thru events rather then techs there and for all of them. For instance, one of them could be world peace. 2nd era: Second Reniseance (sp). Here is where the Matrix picks up. You possibly start it with AI and build from there. Here is basically the arms race era. 3rd era: Mechanical Revolution (name probably to be changed). Here is where the machines are basically in control, humans almost gone along with co-existors (AKA their units get weaker, but co-existors still have machines). Rebels starting to gain more power. 4th era: Revolution: Ahh, the final showdown. Here is where basically the events of the movies take place. You have Neo, Agents, all sorts of fun stuff! (Don't worry, Neo doesn't come until the end) As far as units I would need, I could probably pull most of the modern age (aka first age) offa here and CDG. Very possibly a bunch of the Second Reniscance units aswell, I just need a few made. Now the units that truly need to be made: Squiddies (squid-looking sentinals from the sewers), Neo, Morpheus, Trinnity, Niobe, Ghost, Sparks, Link, Agent Smith, Agents. I also need a bunch of machines, like androids would be great. Also, if any of you own it, look at the Second Reniseance episodes on the Animatrix(sp is wrong again, I know) and I could use any and all of the units from the battle scenes. You can also download the episodes at The Matrix Official Website (click enter and then anime, choose the episode you wanna watch). As far as Neo goes (because I know I'm gonna get this question) he's not going to be SUPERMIGHTY ALL POWERFULL GOD UNIT. He is going to be able to whip on most other units though. He will be able to retreate from battles he's loosing, will be able to pretty successfully defeate Agents, and have a bit of trouble with Smith. All units like Neo, Trin, and Morpheus, will cost a bit to make, discourging you from making more then one of them, especailly Neo. I will set governments in the begining and lock them in, perminatly making the Humans hate the Machines and Co-Existors. The Machines will hate the Rebels and the Rebels the Machines. Now for leaders: Rebels: Morpheus Humanity: Leader of UN Co-Existors: Ghandi (I know he's dead, deal with it) Machines: B166ER (don't argue Smith, it's B166ER) Map: I plan on using the most accuriate World Map I can find, adding in all the cities in the game. THERE WILL BE NO SETTLERS! I will place the Machines in the "cradel of humanity" as the Animatrix goes, AKA Saudi Arabia (or was it Sinai, either one, need to go back and double check) The machines will have a bunch of cities closely packed together, all named Zero-1 (hopefully). If not I'll make up sections of Zero-1 and you'll have to imagine. As for humanity, I will put in a whole lot of real human cities, hopefully all in the right places. The Co-Existors will mainly be be Zero-1 and the rebels mainly in Austrialia (Movies were shot there). They will also have strongholds throughout the map. Now for requests: Units as stated above. I need a bunch of units. Interface (Hello Telgar). Ideas and icons for events. Some I will be able to make, but I will need help. I will use Womok's terrain and will dualy note that in the Readme (I'm saying that I will use it because I dont' belive anyone has been able to contact him in a while). All units I use I will ask and give credit to. Leaderheads. I would like all four of them truly made, but that's ptobably not going to happen so I could probably do them. I'm going to use Ghandi that's in Civ (assuming that I get the others made). If not I'm making a Ghandi too (all static). I also need help with building graphics and city graphics. Not compleatly sure what I need in the way of building graphics, but for cities I need cities that look like they get destroyed and more worn out as time goes on, starting with modern cities. As for the Machines, if someone could make something that looks like Zero-1 from the Animatrix that would be great! Now lastly, for the Capture the Princess part, the King units (Morpheus, Ghandi, UN leader, and B166ER [o yah, I need all made cept for Ghandi]) will be made the princesses and your job: CAPTURE THEM! However now looking back on it, this would make a pretty good stand-alone scenerio w/o the princess capturing. Anyway, I know that this is a tall order, but I think that it could be really cool if it could happen.
