Default interesting rts idea

instead of buildings unlock troops ect...
why not make everything so you have to field recruit the people from apartment buildings or the streets. and comandeer buildings to turn them into whatever.

In other words an RTS that has no tech tree

Actually, the concept sounds sort of familiar, but I'm damned if I can call to mind the game that has something like it.

if youre field recruiting people, where do they get the skills to be competent soldiers/whatever. and then youd be stuck with things like minivans instead of tanks.

i shudder at the thought. soccer moms are evil...
used to be a pair of them at almost all of my games, very heavy smokers/drinkers, it was rather disgusting. having them shout out profanities and crap... ugh.

well it depends what buildings you comandeer.... if you can get ahold of an old gun freaks shot you can arm them with something besides pepper spray and clubs. You can train workers for autoshops... if someone knows how to ride a hog then you can find one and he can be "cavalry".
or you could scrap vehicles for materials and put extra armor for the vehicles.
and who said there was no military installations that werent blown up in a post apocalyptic setting...

edit: Also armored trucks carrying goods could always be used

when i got a full design doc and bunch of art done, i'll make a small anouncement, but right now since you can't copy right an idea.. i'll be holding off.

its probably being a little paranoid, but i've had to deal w/. the shit before.. so i'll go ahead and be on the safe side
