Proposal for campaign changes

#21
Ok heres my own two cents to this

-Combat merits, disinctions, awards, mercenarys: Mechaniclly a very good idea for influencing other factions and thinning out fleets (both your own and your opponents). As stated often enough, teleporting mercenarys and taunted enemies into battle would break the immersive "realtime" feel the campaign always had and be a bit arbitrary. Maybe assign your mercenarys to a fleet first and have it physically travel there and have taunting be something you do in diplomacy to make them more aggressive rather than for a specific battle but there is probably no easy answer. An option to remove a unit from mercenary status after some conditions are met should also exist. Huge plus for factions fighting each other though.

-Only Roaming fleets, no garrisons: Yes, yes and yes. This has the potential to open up more nuanced options for conquering than carving a path down to the headquarter. More detailed Fleet detection would also be a huge improvement. Radio masts are way to cheap for what they do. Either remove them or have them draw power, or make them only detect stationary constructs. Have the player needing either the current detection systems, or new systems for tracking enemy movements on the map. Split them into above water and under water. This will necessitate countermeassures against submarines and aircraft. (Sneaking submarines into enemy territory but they cant spot anything completely above water Smile  )

With this change i would also like to see the idea of enemy elite units and strategic targets expanded. Ships like the DWG Kraken, SS Thyr or TG Abyss could serve as flagships of their respective faction. Sailing around with a sizeable fleets as the ultimate challenge from each faction. The DWG Tortuga building and launching airstrikes or the ACBM silos of the SS firing nukes across the map could be strategic targets you want to destroy quickly in a war. Pendaelose also mentioned the DWG Airship factory and the Prowler ambush as examples of scripted exciting fights. More things like that could create challenges throughout the campaign and break up the often monotonos battle chain.

Boarding/Capture: I like the idea of enemy ships surrendering to replace the current capture mechanics. An enemy unit would only surrender A: under a specific health percentage and B: One of your own craft beeing close by. Some units can also be set to never surrender in order to limit abuse.
