Hey Everyone, if you opened the topic, please take a moment to read through and comment what you think
Planetary interaction (in addition to current interaction) could be enriched if not enhanced).
In order to support the (1) point , I would like to note that in the market, under “Trade Goods” - Passengers, you will see tradables, that could be used for circumstances that I listed below.
- Missions that are dedicated to Planets
unique resource search and extraction through industrial ships only. (slaves or researches could be required to deploy on the planet to acquire the goods, which means, there is a tradeoff for the resources)
military missions that require rescue of refuges, extermination of aliens and/or predators ))) can be anything in fact, human imagination has no limits, for this the marines could be handy. Depending on difficulty level it would lets say, provide percentage of success for the provided number of marines for a particular mission scenario. In other wards, higher the difficulty level, more marines or other staff would be required for successful completion of the mission. otherwise the resources would be wasted without outcome
Planetary bombardment against some infestation or contaminated region. For that you will need a special type of ammunition that is used only for planetary bombardment. For the sake of little bit realism let it be available only to large ships, lets say the battleship class spaceships and higher, otherwise it doesn’t sound normal to bombard a planet with a frigate ))
emergency evacuation mission that would require big cargo hold, due to the large number of refugees… so you are paid if you manage to fly and save the people from doom. the moment you dock a station they will be removed from your cargo and you get automatic ISK reward.
Rewards could be for example, ISK and for a very long and difficult missions that require some real resource and time expense, pilots could be rewarded some skill points or research points… not in big amounts of course.
As a result, we got
- more ways to interaction with planets
- more fun and interest to interact with planets.
- no overload on servers as the calculations are not going to be complex.
- The game will have more PvE components for those who don’t like and avoid PvP upon possibility.
- More drones to command at a time and few tweaks:
-if drones are gonna die and you didn’t call them back, instead of just dying, let them have a protocol of self destruct by ramming the opponent ship anyways they gonna be destroyed, so the destruction would be changed into ramming that would damage the enemy ship, and the animation can be visualized as a comet that hits the ship, so it can glow red with a red trail at a very fast speed.
Currently maximum number of drones is 5, why not increase it to 6-8
Before you begin to say that more drones means more calculus and it will overload servers during large conflicts, I remind you that large conflicts are already overloading the servers even with 5 drones at a time. bringing in 2-3 drones more per pilot won’t change much.
I would say if you got more drones thn the DPS is more, more dps means faster kills… faster kills means shorter conflict duration, therefore the server overheat duration is also decreasing theoretically.
Thanks for your attention
