  • A group of 80-100 NPCs and 1 commander that spawn altogether not in waves. In the chat it will say factions army has spawned near by. For example, A Mordor army has spawned nearby. If you wanted to make the message in chat more faction specific it could be A black host has issued from the gates of Minas Morgul. I don’t know if this could be possible though.

    • I like the idea. The implementation would be challenging, though not impossible. The biggest issue is that the number of entities loaded in would cause lag. LOTS of lag. Especially if a player isn't equipped with a dedicated gaming computer, and or doesn't know how to up the RAM cap for Java (I'm the latter). Servers would become unusable. I imagine this is the reason that Raids function the way they do.

      The other issue is that most evil factions have stronger units at this time. An "army" from Mordor could have a half-dozen Olog-hai or more, and I don't think that's particularly balanced.

      But overall, this is a good idea. You should make an account and consider making a more detailed post that also addresses how to resolve those particular issues.

      Up the RAM... I know how to do it!
