Brainstorm I & S - Evil meter
#8
Great comments and suggestions Goose! +1 all the way.

The idea I had for IPs would be something that could work alongside the EPs as outlined in this thread. My thinking is that the IPs work much the same way as culture works in Civilization 4. Each room, creature, and construction produces a field of X amount of IPs per unit of time, and each tile within the area of effect gets the owner's IPs added to it. To make this work, each tile would have to have 1 IP stat for each faction in the game, or at least 1 for each faction that has at least 1 IP on it. Whoever has the most IPs on a tile owns it, if no one has any IPs on it, then it's unowned. Also, the effects of each IP producer should be cumulative, so if you built a cannon near a tile, that cannon would start producing 2 IPs/minute within its area of effect, and let's say an orc hangs around that area for a few minutes and it generates 1 IP/minute, all tiles within the IP radius of both the cannon and the orc would get 3 IP/minute, anything within the area of effect of just the cannon would get 2 and anything within the area of effect of just the orc would get 1.

The accumulation of IPs on each tile for each faction would also be cumulative, so after 3 minutes of a tile being under the influence of the cannon and orc, you would have 9 IPs on that tile. Now let's say a goodie-goodie dwarf faction builds a guard tower next near that tile, and it generates 5 IPs on the tile in question, then after 1 minute you would have 12 IPs, the dwarves would have 5 IPs and you would still be in control but the dwarves would be on pace to oust you from that tile in about 4 minutes if nothing else changes.

Of course, if the Dwarves were to attack and kill your orc, and destroy that cannon, your IPs could also start to drop by a certain amount or percentage each minute until it reaches 0, signifying that your influence there is waning with nothing there to exert your influence on that tile. If you were to later kill all dwarves but then your orcs left the area, the dwarves influence would also start dropping in a similar way, so the tile would eventually revert back to neutral or unowned.

So IPs would be for owning and controlling territory, while the EPs would be for building more evil things and generating more evil creatures.
