GAMEMODE SUGGESTION: Zulu Attack!
« on: November 12, 2017, 06:09:03 pm »
ZULU ATTACK!


What it would be about:
I would like to suggest that we make a gamemode, where a colonial force has to hold back a never ending Zulu attack until the timer runs out. (Sorta like Last Stand, maybe the dead players joins the Zulu Team on death?)
It could also function with limited waves for the colonial forces to drag out the fight, or if codeable make an objective gamemode where you can get rescued by say a ship.

Essentially it would be like a zombie mode without zombies and more weapons.

Potential weapons:
Spears (Melee but also throwable.)
Bows (Inaccurate rapidly fireing.)
Other potential weapons that the Zulu tribe would have.


We would also need Zulu playermodels and maybe a colonial variant to the British or other countries forces.

It could also just be named: Native Uprising!

The idea is just a tribal force overrunning an isolated regiment, there could be thick jungles with plenty of space to hide in and ect.

Perhaps it could be set in India, as opposed to Africa. Though I think that something like this would be better suited for a mod.

I'm sure there will be a mod for Holdfast once people can create mods

Hello!
I am quite the fan of all of the Zulu movies and the era of the Zulus, however I do not think that this addition should be made to the game, but more should be made a mod when modding is a thing, the main focus behind this is the games main focus and aim is towards the Napoleonic era, also the developers are attempting to optimize the game to it's full potential and they're adding in factions very slowly, I do not think that this would be a good use of time on the devleopers hands to be making an entire new game-mode + factions/weaponry, I would personally say it'd be best to wait for modding to become a thing in the game and wait it out for some tallented folk to make something along the lines of a Zulu mod.

Zulus do not have any chance against the European armies.

You're right. In the 1870s, most Zulu's were armed with "old muskets."
