No, it won't.

Can we please keep in mind that he's talking about making a real game and not a little kiddy game like you cna with this.  To make a real game takes immense ammounts of work and it will never, never get to the point where you just say to the computer, "I want this game, make it for me", at least until we have advanced AI's to do it for us, but regardless, it's not gonna happen any time soon.

Also, as some others said, it's not very creative.  While it's true that there arn't many games that have combined RTS and FPS, I'm willing to bet it's because it probbaly doesn't work very well.  And frankly, when I was reading your description, all I could think of was that it sounded an awful lot like a combination between Halo, Empire: Total War and Gmod.  On that note, the Gmod addition is completely redundant and doesn't fit into the rest of the description at all.  That's not to say you wouldn't be able to work in some customizability, but Gmod level stuff?  No way.

I understand the concept of making a dream game, I've considered some things myself.  But you need to learn to tell what is possible, what will be possible, and what will not be possible.  And I'm not just talking from a technological standpoint.  Your story is beyond cliche.  Your gameplay is all over the map.  And you keep mentioning features like Moral and the upgrades that really don't seem to well thought out at all.

That said, don't give up on your dream game, just work on it.  Perhaps scale it back somewhat, put more thought into the story (which I admit having come up with some concepts like this is probably the hardest part).

Although this is clearly not very well thought out, (un-suprisingly), I think the topic of FPS/RTS Crossover would be something worth talking about.

Isn't there already an FPS/RTS crossover or something in some military modern style game? I thought I saw that you were both the commander and a single soldier on the ground.

There's Savage 1 and 2, Empires 2 and Natural Selection (to a lesser extend). There are a couple of other rts's that allow you to take control of units, but those aren't fps's

That kind of thing will never be used in a grand scale because it restricts stuff too much and it's hard to update. For example, when companies want to use better graphics on a sequel/newer game they usually rewrite the graphics engine instead of updating it because given the advances in technology it's easier and more practical to make something new than to update something old.

Ok... if your setting this in Halo... The UNSC only has ONE super-soldier and thats the Master Chief. But he only stuck around the Ark and the Brutes were only at the Ark, but a force was sent to... somewhere on Earth, I forgot where.

...This isn't set in Halo, but the enemies invading Earth are called brutes.

We were just pointing out a similarity >_>

And besides, not all brutes were sent to the ark. I also assume that the other brute force you are referring to is the one that attacked New Mombasa during Halo 2. Also, there were many Spartans, but most were killed off during the attack on Reach. I never read the books but I think three or four others survived, and it is possible that other had, but they are considered dead by the UNSC.

No, the other brute force didn't attack the remains of Mombasa, there was already Covenant there. I'm saying they attacked... Cleveland? It was during the Halo comic.

Empires is a fairly good RTS/FPS mod.
