SNYPE BOIZ (ALPHA)
8 player, fast paced shooter.






DESCRIPTION

SNYPE BOIZ is an 8 player shooter map, with inspiration taken from maps like Skirmish, Doom 2, and an old map I was developing called Urban.
Players choose a game mode at the beginning of the game and fight each other, play objectives, or wander around not knowing how to A+click.

Gameplay is simple. To fire your weapon simply A+click on targets and to move simply right click like a normal SC Map. My goal is to achieve a "easy to learn, hard to master" type gameplay loop. Having said that, there is a lot of depth going on behind the scenes.




MECHANICS

AMMO
Players have a limited amount of ammunition per life, and must reload either manually with hold position (H), or automatically when their magazine depletes.

ACCURACY
Players "accuracy" is determined by their movement. The longer a player stands still, the higher their accuracy increases, up to a maximum. This accuracy is directly added to the damage of their bullets. The moment a player moves though, the accuracy is reset to 0, and the player's bullets will do base damage.

MOVEMENT
Players movement affects incoming damage. The more you are moving, the less damage you take, similar to accuracy but in the opposite way.
Movement also has momentum, which means when you are moving for a certain amount of time, your unit starts to "run", which just means its movement speed increases.

These two things create an interesting outcome. Players may camp and hide behind trees and obstacles and benefit from doing way more damage on their first shot, but run the risk of being an easy target to their opponent. Players who prefer to run and gun do much less damage, often taking 3 - 4 shots to kill an enemy, but will take less damage because of their movement.

DODGE
Dodging makes use of SC's cloaking. Cloak to use dodge, though you only cloak for about 1 second, enough time to keep someone from targeting you and giving you a moment to evade.

PROXIMITY DAMAGE
This is very simple, the closer you are to a target, the more damage you do. When you are right up next to a target (2x2 location), you get a "point blank" kill which is instant and rewards a higher score.

ADRENALINE
When players drop below a certain threshold of hitpoints, your movement speed drastically increases and you reload almost twice as fast. This is to give you a chance to evade a near death experience and possibly turn the fight around.

HITPOINTS AND DEATH
Hitpoints regenerate after a period of time without taking damage. When you die you lose your killstreak and your ammo is replenished. Depending on the game mode, you will respawn.

KILLSTREAKS
As you get kills per your current life, you get new abilities and rewards for your efforts. (Like call of duty)
So far I've added Minimap Ping for 30 seconds of your enemies locations (2 Kills). Flak gun which is an easy to use spammable shotgun type weapon that does splash damage (4 Kills).

Updated to v0.22

Added new game Modes: Free for All and Domination
domination plays like Domination in Call of Duty or conquest in Battlefield, capture flags to hold their positions. For every flag you own, you get control points, first team to 200 control wins

Added scoreboard you can view during death with Q, can scroll to view other players data as well.

Also added a shoot off feature for first spawn of each round which has players face off in an old western shoot off style.

Changed various stats based on playtesting

Thanks to Inferno, Dem0n, jjf, Moose, voy, etc for testing with me.

Next things Im gonna add are equipment like various grenades, claymore, more killstreaks, point bonuses for different tasks like revenge and coming back from a death streak etc.

Did a shit load of internal things for future proofing like an entire unit reload system for units that use Cunit EUDs which allows for multiple play zones within the map etc etc.

PLAY THE MAP if you havent. Thanks
