Does anybody think the idea of a 3d type version of command and conquer, but with units and tactics from the second world war. I like the idea of different maps for different regions, like desert, forest, mountain. There could be objectives for each screen that rely on waiting for support units to arrive, like paratroopers and tanks. Just think it might be a fairly easyish game to write and would be interesting to play. I have already got the foundations of my 3d engine going which is currently throwing around some .3ds objects. Opinions??

Just having a few more ideas on it.

I do like the idea of certain levels or battles where the player is in a position of trying to say hold an area with one type of unit, say Infantry against impossible odds until reinforcements arrive and mayba being able to take risks with airdrops etc.

I like the idea of having artillery or mortars and softening up say a river bank or beachhead before assaulting it.

I am going to be working today on getting my engine to draw terrain, it currently will throw .3ds models about at high speed including lighting and a simple phyics model including gravity.

You GOTTA check out Ground Control. I''ve never played a 3D game with a better user interface.

Also, it''s real fun and includes loads of the ideas you mention...
