Trains?
« on: March 26, 2015, 11:24:27 am »
"I like trains."


I would ask this at the next fireside (except I'm at school at that time), but trains?

Do you guys think that trains would have a place in the GOIO world? After all, train is a major part of the steampunk culture.

Yeah, actually, they might.  Not as big of a role as they should because nobody knows how anything works any more, but in the big cities I don't see why not.

This brings up a far more important question, though; Are there War Trains?

As in, MG emplacements on them with Flak Gun carts spread out evenly?

In GoIO there sure as hell is.

On both Paritan and Canyon Ambush there are remnants of old train tracks. Seems likely that they exist in the world somewhere.

Thinking,... Angleans probably revived an old subway system to connect their underground city centers.


Factions other than the Arashi probably has tracks between city centers, mines, and refineries.

I bet Yeshans have war trains to support their land wars. Ooh, what about a train-airship carrier? Carts designed to transport short-range skirmish ships to the front lines. Lift out of train cars and start raining death!

And I talked about this somewhere:
Valkyria Chronicles is almost a steampunk game. They use blue magic ore (ragnite) instead of coal. Ch. 10 pt.2 (Liberation of Fouzen) features a Canyon map with a rail spanning across it. On that rail sits a railway gun called Equus. The objective is to destory the bridge beneath Equus and send it crashing down. In addition to fighting your way to the bridge, the Equus puts down Mortar fires, moves around, and locks down a half the map with impressive machine-gun barrages.

A few reference pics:


Fouzen, not dissimilar to maps we already have.


Equus, an impressive railway gun you must defeat.


So,.. something similar to this mission would be really cool in Co-op. Not that fighting ginormous behemoths aren't enough.

Schwerer Gustav - The largest artillery piece ever built.






It shoots one of these up to 48km



Can only be moved on double train tracks.
>one of these is literally already in the game - Fight Over Firnfeld

It's time for more Trains of Icarus Online pls.
