REPOST: storymode (max see this)

    hi, ahem. WE NEED A STORY. this is only because I want context of why these "halo-like soldiers" (apparently people think this is some bad version of halo) are fighting. seriously, if we dont have a storyline then its just another boring shooter game. with a story it makes more sense for why we fight each other (matches and servers). i think its a good idea. maybe not a single player camaign like I previously suggested, but a story makes a shooter game (especially a browser shooter game) more interesting. I'm an author (not a official one but still. i make books on google docs, which I plan to publish) so I can make a story, but it will require lots of thinking time. also, when I get better at animating and 3D modeling, I can make a "movie" type of animation that explains the story as if it were a movie. but that takes at least 4 months for a very experienced person to do, and only for 30 minutes. BUT the point is, that we need a story to have context, and it better be a good one. it could maybe be in the "about" tab in the main menu. and just an off topic suggestion, maybe the background can change between these cinamatic backgrounds to make it more interesting, but that will take time. please max consider this

    I hope that Max sees this. It's a very good idea.

    If/when the game has 1k+ concurrent players I will consider adding a story mode.

    @Iplayvideogames I was going to ask if you play video games, but your name clearly indicates that you do. What video games do you play and how often?

    That's what it used to be before the shutdown.

    You said you did 3D animation.

    no, i said I CAN make a 3D animation if I was experienced. and besides, the animation would take 4 months for a experienced person to do. a youbetoube called "secret4studios" is what im talking about. look up that and look at the graphics and animations. and story if you want. that inspired me. but whatever, my point is that it will take a long time if i started now. i assure you guys that I will make a movie/animation about this game with my own story if there is none by that time (im talking about in like 2 years)

    Few years ago, when the game was at its healthiest I believe, browsers dropped support for UnityWebPlayer (iirc) and the game had to shut down, stayed that way for ~9 months I believe, then in January 2017 it came back online.

    Though most of the old players couldn't return because WebGL didn't support them.
