First off, please be aware that there is no guarantee this is going anywhere. For now, we're just seeing how many of you would be interested in this.
So, what is it?
Mercenaries last update was in February of 2016, over two years ago. Since that, the mod, while still going strong, has only seen very little attention from Homer, who, from what we now, doesn't have much time to spend on it due to personal reasons.
I believe it's about time that we get another patch and I'm willing to work on it. For that, we obviously need Homers support - I'd either need access to the Mercenaries source code from him or him to implement the changes I prepare and we would also need him to upload the changes made to the Mercenaries servers and to the mods download page.
If this poll gets enough support, we'll send it to Homer and hope that he's willing to support us in bringing this patch on the way. If he does, I'll get more polls on the way to have the community vote on all changes that could make it's way into the mod - if there aren't enough votes for a change, it's not happening.
What could be done?
- New items
- Balance changes to existing items
- New maps
- Balance changes to existing game modes (e.g. flag mod and earlier flag spawns for Battle)
- New clan banners
I'm not really looking to touch any of the mods mechanics or to add new ones, especially not in the first patch of this kind.
This poll will be active for about a week and after that we'll see if there's enough votes in favor of a community patch and, if so, send it to Homer.
Again, there is no guarantee on anything happening based on this, but the more participation in this poll there is, the higher the chances that something happens.
