Ok let set the stage for the game. You control a tank, with your script, on a battle field of variable size, and fight up to 9 other tanks in the field during one match.
The match will last for a set amount of time.(not infinite)
Your tank my perform tasks as moving, shooting, scaning, etc.
The object is to kill all the other tanks on the field.

Please give your suggestions and comments.



UPDATE 5
I'm thinking of implementing everything in a true 3D space.

UPDATE 1
Thanks to Larsen for pointing out those other game

UPDATE 2
Mr.nick had the idea to include different types of moving or firing methods such as Moving::hover or Moving::treads. This made me think of stuff like Radar::passive, Radar::active, Body::normal, Body::stealth. The Body::stealth would suggest that radar is not 100% accurate.

UPDATE 3
Looks like it is going to be a time based not turn base game. Oh all the possibilities! =)

UPDATE 4
What do you think of 4 teams of 3 tanks fighting it out as a extra play type?

Game specs

M = meters; S = seconds; Body::Normal { Hull = 1000 Radarsig = 90 Maxpower = 100 } Body::Stealth { Hull = 700 Radarsig = 45 Maxpower = 60 } Weapon::Cannon { Damage = 500 Accuracy = 5 // Within n M of location shot at DamageArea = 5 // M Reload = 10 // S Rrange = 500 // M Speed = 20 // M per S Power = 10 // Power needed from body } Weapon::Rocket { Damage = 700 Accuracy = 30 // Within n M of location shot at DamageArea = 20 // M Reload = 10 // S Rrange = 500 // M Speed = 20 // M per S Power = 20 // Power needed from body }
