I've got some Ideas for strings of simple repeating Quests (ala Far Cry 2).
The Dirty Hand of the Apocolypse String
Starts by talk to the Merchant in Megaton
Ends with completion of his objective, no need to talk to him again
- rewards: food, ammo, potions and the like
Type 1: The merchant is unhappy with a roving trader, find his supply stash and ignite it.
- A random pile of crates will spawn in the wild, hit the propane tank next to it to ignite and destroy.
Type 2: The merchant is having trouble with some Rebels (see my Feedback and Suggestions post) who keep stopping his supply caravans. He wants to see them gone.
- 2 Rebel Border Guards spawn in the wild and you need only kill them.
Type 3: The merchant has word of a SAM missle for sale by a rival competitor. He dosen't want it to sell.
- A SAM missle (PHX possibly?) and some small crates will spawn with 1 Merchant Guard. Hit the Explosive barrel to blow up the stash.
The Peacekeeper Doctorate (see my Feedback and Suggestions post)
Requires you to be in the Rebels Faction
Starts by talking to the Rebel Captian
End after objective. No need to report to him again
Type 1: Combine raiders are harrassing patrols. Fill them full of lead and their camp.
- 2 Combine Raiders spawn around some wooden crates with stockpiled missiles. Hit a button on the crates to activate a self-destruct (wire mod: button + explosive).
Type 2: A Combine field commander is in the area. See to it his last command is you.
- An Elite Combine spawns with a Combine bodyguard. Simply kill.
Total Domination (see my Feedback and Suggestions post)
Requires you to be in the Combine faction
Starts at the Combine Executor
Ends with completion of objective. no secondary reports.
Type 1: Stranded survivors have been spotted heading towards Megaton. Intercept and raze their homes and them.
- 2 Survivors (citizen model) spawn next to a house (pallet supported by dock planks). Kill and hit the propane to destroy.
Type 2: Rebels are attacking a forward base. Assist forces there to push them back.
- 1 Combine soldier spawns fighting 2-3 Rebel Soldiers. Kill to win.
