    Space Map - - - need your ideas

    Poppa-Ghosts

      In an effort to help IW move the idea of a space map forward - - - can the community please post ideas on what they think would make for interesting features for a space map ?

       

      What dynamics would make for an interesting map ?  Movement similar to the campaign mode.

      Obviously movement in true 3D; being able to walk on walls and ceilings; rotating player perspective to allow for increased playing surfaces.

      Jet pack for a free float experience in the "outside" areas.

       

      And can you imagine the map Terminal remade as a space port with a shuttle docked ???

       

      Time to unlock your imaginations and let Activision know we liked the space portion of the campaign and would like to see a version in multiplayer.

          You battle in side a small dome on the moon then when a field order is activated it turns off the gravity

            I think a map like this would be the first time I break a controller.

              That sounds like it would work in Extinction- there is no possibility for killstreaks in space. Seriously- this sounds like a interesting idea for another gamemode- just not multiplayer. Have you forgotten about the killstreaks?

                Space Map?

                 

                Although I do not mind Extinction, I know many gave up on COD because they swore that if there were ever Aliens in the game, they would quit (not that the opinion of those who I am talking about will make or break the franchise)

                 

                The term "Jumping the Shark" comes to mind.

                  I don't know if a halo map - er, I mean a space map will work.

                   

                  No, seriously. How are people going to be able to dolphin dive? How are they going to be able to slide across the floor? How will they ever halo jump????

                      Seemed to work just fine in the campaign mode.

                      And as far as kill streaks - of course minor adjustments would need to be made.

                       

                      If the community thinks that a space map for multi-player is a horrendous idea; then I'm sure that IW would want those opinions as well.

                      If many players are content with the conventional warfare scenarios that Ghosts current campaign/multiplayer presents then IW may want to concentrate on other areas for advancement of the series.

                      If not present a few ideas - - - -who knows maybe in a couple of years the communities ideas may see fruition.

                      nope . nope and nope

                       

                      the physics employed in the sp cannot be taken over to mp so any idea of floating ect would be gone

                       

                      premise of a map set in space nope hate it

                      premise of map set onboard something in space..nope hate it

                       

                      in fact the premise of anything cod set in space hate it

                          Desert, done it.

                          Urban ground level, done it,

                          Urban High Rise, done it.

                          Devastated Urban decay, overdone it.

                          Forrest done it.

                          Snow fields (like Array), done it,

                          Moors, done it.

                          Italian Villas done it; etc, etc,etc.

                          I mean think of all the maps we've played on:  Estate, Derail, Invasion, Rust, Terminal, Afghan, Favela, Wasteland, Karachi, Quarry, Rundown, Skid Row, Scrapyard, Sub Base, Underpass, Highrise, Bailout, Storm, Salvage, Crash, Overgrown, Carnival, Trailerpark, Fuel, Strike, Vacant, Array, Summit, Radiation, Jungle, Nuketown, Firing Range, Cracked, Havana, Crisis, Grid, Hanoi, Launch, Villa - - -

                          and everybody's current map of discussion Strikezone - er I mean Dome, er I mean Dome 2025.
                          I don't mind rehashed maps or cosmetically redesigned maps - - OCCASIONALLY;  I just don't want it to become the dominating or steering direction that this franchise takes.

                          Just trying to get the community thinking about where the franchise should progress to.

                          The final frontier is inevitable, at least in some small part, unless IW starts doing flashbacks or retrospectives.

                          And do we really want or need a prequel ?

                                I hear ya... but the question is: Why does COD need to go anywhere (off this earth I mean). It is a war shooter (past wars and current warfare). If where it is and has been is getting old, that is more of an indication that maybe it is time to hang the boots.

                                 

                                (Kinda like how they should never have made the 4th India Jones movie... aliens!? really!?)

                              A space map?  Like in Unreal Tournament?  I'd find that interesting tbh.

                                I like it, the care package idea is cool, gravity turns on, and if you are on a wall, floating, or on the ceiling you come crashing down. You got my vote!

                                  I think you don't want to get too far away from the reality based Military Arcade shooter (Not saying realistic for you nit-pickers out there, but a realistic setting). Sadly they already started down this path by integrating Mike Myers as a killstreak... slippery slope folks... but I don't want to see them jump the shark too much.

                                   

                                  Couple of issues.... this would render practically all killstreaks useless. Can't really have air support in space, can you? How would the dogs work? A lot of issues that would mess with the basic way this game runs.

                                      Cool idea, but not functional. How would killstreaks work? Like the dog or any of the helis?

                                        Ive been thinking this for awhile and my friends and all thought it would be awesome to have a space map...it would change things up a bit, just like if they made an underwater mp map as well. yes killstreaks would be an issue but i liked the gravity field order idea mentioned above...to compensate for lack of being able to use many killstreaks an idea that comes to my mind is IW adding one extra custom class for the space map only and selecting from what killstreaks would work in space...such as many support killstreaks and specialist killstreaks. and this is coming for me who never uses either!

                                          I think it could be done. I would suggest a moonbase type map since there is some gravity. And players would wear weighted boots/shoes to walk. Part of the fighting might involve shooting at an enemy that only punctures their suit and they have so much time to get to an airlock and get back inside the base before they die from suffocation. Either way, it may be a game mode that only next gen could handle, I don't know. But, I'd like to see new map ideas pursued in COD.
