Dark Horizons: Mechanized Corps

Dark Horizons: Mechanized Corps

Hoping for an in depth game.....
Hoping for an in depth game in the future. Perhaps dropships, bases, home planets, interstellar travel for missions or changeing homeworld..........forgive me if this is sounding like a mechwarrior enthusiasts dream come true, especially since mechwarrior online is just a load and fight, load and fight............and fell FAR short of true enthusiasts expectations....and I know this "isnt" mechwarrior but I cant see some one making a game like this who isnt a MW enthusiast. You guys want your game to go gold? Want us to cream our collective jeans over the game? Give us what all others have failed to do since FASA.....o, and yeah...I know this isnt mechwarrior.....and some eye punishing HD graphics couldnt hurt either with well wooded and decorated terrains. CMON punich our machines! Its what we build them for!

Ive owned DHMC since a week or two after inital release. Playing that version compared to now...its so far apart its amazing. Especially for such a small indie team, and mech games cannot be easy to make. Theres not a ton of depth, sure, but you have to build the base/engine up before you add features and depth. I have nothing but confidence in the devs to eventually add more depth and features. Just keep being patient, and this game will eventually be great! :)

I've been playing Dark Horizons in some form since a good 15 or so years ago. I can tell you there's more to the universe than what we're seeing. I don't know about interstellar travel though.
The factions are/were former soviet bloc countries on one side, and western capitalist countries on the other (for the most part). There are other factions not represented in the game currently too (Mars Colony, Eastern Countries). This puts most of them firmly planted to the home world of Earth. Drop ships might have been a thing, but I'm not sure. Deploying from above the battlefield could be fun. I personally think you're going a bit big foir the setting but I've some ideas now.

I can't speak for the dev team, I'm not one of them (though I'd like to say I could count them amongst my friends), but I'd like to think we'll get a lot more from this game as time goes by.

thnx for the replies! and glad I may have helped generate some ideas! I have high hopes for the game, though i know i should keep them lidded. There doesnt seem to have been piles od development on the game from what I have read here and there thoguh what I have read may be incomplete. High hopes

There's a lot of work going on! The team is currently rebuilding multiplayer to update it and have a ton more options now and going forward in the future.

Great news! Hope there will be extended co op campaign abilities and then some for coop. My friends and I have a heck of a time finding a satisfying co op game we can enjoy, and the co op tag is what led me to MC. I dont mind the occasional pvp mind you, but I play several other games like BF4 and get plenty of that. A wild romp through a story/campaign mode that isnt over in 2 hours or less would just ROCK ON with a couple buddies and pile of bots!

I'm a huge fan of co-op too. Unfortunately I don't know what the plans the team has there, but a co-op mode would certainly send my heart all aflutter.

Our plan is to eventually add in co-op play

I wouldn't get your hopes on this. The devs mean well but really there has been nothing worthy of spending the 15 bucks I did. Without enough players willing to play the game and with the modes being so....bland and the game looking like mw4 pretty much just doesn't give a mech lover much to enjoy.

If this had at least a single player mode would be more fun but it's a mp with no playerbase to speak of. I think I've gotten a total of one match with more than a couple of players nad I dont recall them even using team speak or anything.

They're working on single player and one of the devs just confirmed plans to have co-op play. Have you been following the beta? I'm not even sure which build is up for non-beta. But there were SP modes in both. I haven't had a chance to try the latest beta build yet though.

Talk talk talk, thats all you hear in these early access games.

I will believe it when it's playable.

This... is very non-specific. Most early access games want the Devs to talk. If you've been following the beta builds you'll see huge amounts of improvement and work going into the game to go along with the talk.
In fact, the game was doing pretty well in terms of build and content, but the Devs went back to rebuild the game to be even better moving forward. Which is a huge reason why the game seemed to stall out for a while, but the payoff is well worth it.

Megatron has been trolling on this board for a long time. Its not worth giving him attention.

I'm not trolling or even insulting anyone, the fact is this game never got enough of a player base to be fun to play. I come back now and again to see if this game has enough players where just about anytime of the day you can log in and actually communicate with people in game.
