View Full Version : football game questions

just to establish what kind of things people would expect from a football game, if you'd be good enough to answer these questions:
1. do you want the whole pitch to be visible, or only a part of it (which scrolls as the ball moves up and down the pitch)?
2. which way would you like the pitch, vertical or horizontal?
3. should it be an overhead view (straight down), or an element of 3d - looking from 45 degrees?
4. would you like to have a full team of 11, or 5-a-side, or a definable number?
5. how big should it be - take up the whole screen, half, etc?
6. what full time stats would you like to see?
if you think any of these should be defined by the user - i.e. they get options to choose from (which makes it more difficult for me to do) - then please say so.

anything else you can think of, that a football game needs?

PS. i realise this is the actionscript section, but i kinda need help with that as well - if i were to do it so that the screen moves with the ball (so that not all the pitch is visible at a time), how would i do it? do i give the pitch the ball's movement, or do i have to do something completely different?

thanks for the input, will bear them in mind. was planning on doing different pitch surfaces with different properties anyway.
