What do you want first?

I have several active concepts for Infinity. I'd like to know what the community has the most interest in.

Operation Snowfall is the story of a "braked" AI being developed in the top labs of Pan-O, and the many, many factions interested in recovering or destroying it after a covert raid steals it away. Features a Faction-restriction system, where there are several options for what faction you use in a mission, but you can't choose "just anyone." Primary story Factions attain points for the endgame, and faction selection has additional benefits. Complete with ...about 12 custom, upgradeable, characters.

The Valkallian Sectorial was initially inspired by Valkyria Chronicles, but it's grown past that into it's own thing. It's a small country, part of an alliance of the weak, essentially. The theme is Poland and Germany, the quirks are Nanotechnology (Automeds for EVVVVERYOONEEE!! - not really but...), and a lack of cheap Regulars and specialized Remotes (They've got multipurpose ones though) Oh... and not many Cubes. Cubes are EXPENSIVE. And even more expensive is Lhost-tech. Hence, Nanomeds. Once this is Complete, I can add other sectorials to it and eventually create a full Faction! (the alliance of the weak). The next one planned is a "North American Police Dept." theme. Complete with lack of heavy weaponry, but no lack in good training and aggressive deployment capabilities.

The Scenario Pack goes hand in hand with the option below it, the TMC system. However, it is still playable on it's own. The scenarios are all themed on modern (last 40 years) civilian crises that allow fully thematic deployments of things like the Tomcats Emergency & Rescue, or the KanRen Counter Insurgency Unit.

The TMC system is a way, similar to the (described to me once but lost in a book somewhere) Mercenary Faction creation system.
You select a Geographical Origin Faction, and a Funding Faction, as well as the type (Terrorist, Militia, or Organized Crime), and BAM you have a working army list, complete with all the essentials, as well as some extra sparks of uniqueness. Complete with 3 new troop profiles- the Grunts, Elites, and Cortex (aka leaders) or the group, with armament options changing by the TMC type selected. Highly thematic way to field an OpFor (for training players, practice, or fluff), as well as going hand-in-hand with the above Scenario Pack.

Anyways, tell me what you think

I'm not really interested in custom campaigns or factions, but scenarios could be interesting. Any chance for some "auto-play" rules for the TMC lists? Could be fun to run as solo play or as a third faction in a "two rival black ops teams in enemy territory" situation.

While that would be possible, I doubt that it would be fun- as you would have to either consult lists of "programming" each turn, or have them function as simple turrets. I'll see what I can think up though.
