Reposted from old forums to “currentize” the disscussion.
excuse me for the clickbait, as that’s all it was, now…
The Archwald Aura Field Generator
Show info would say: Damon Archwald was apart of the group to develop the cloaking device. After the Covert ops Cloaking device was declassified to capsuleers, he finally was able to go about taking the only thing he really wanted from the project: a failed prototype that due to poor circuitry calibration, would envelop the test subject in a glow of many colors. after using the device for entertainment purposes he felt he should share this development with with the galaxy for ship use, and created a fittable module for use on ships.
Actual description: the modules’s sole purpose is to emit an “aura” around the fitted ship, that looks along the lines of this building in this gif .To expand upon that certain ship SKINs can effect the color scheme of the lights, and boy do i have a good idea if that’s possible (want to keep it a secret, just in case CCP would want to implement it’s aesthetics exactly)
Types of utility we could add include:
Redirecting fire to you: now obviously this couldn’t be applied to a pvp aspect, right? i mean, if these balanced jokes write themselves rhiload will be out of a job. redirecting drone fire that if anyone isn’t in full control of their drones sounds doable, but the real application would have to be Ratting, because let’s insult the intelligence of our good friends the rats by distracting them with pretty colors. this of course, would outlined like this:
All pirate faction dessies and below, except for sansha, which we’ll include cruiser maybe Battlecruiser rats because if anyone took a look at the lore knows they’re an implant removal away from committing suicide, a dark reference, but a detail to not miss.
Rogue drones are optional and would have to coincide with whether or not they redirect fire of player controlled drones
Optional if sleeper rats are effected, but since they are supposed to be the most intelligent it should only effect patroller frigates.
Another idea to give this module some use would be a small signature radius reduction as i’d assume it’d be hard to get a direct hit on a floating light show.
Questions? need me to elaborate? I got notifications on.
