Enter in contact with other factions.

Post by getfreur » 19 Jul 2017, 00:11

Summary (a quick, 2-3 sentence summary):

Someone can enter in contact with another faction by the communication room terminal for many motives and maybe receive a reply from said contact.

Benefits (How this will benefit the server and game as a whole):

More different scenarios made by the players, give more possibilities for the survivors and more job for the MPS.

Details (Description of how you think this would work, the benefits, etc):

The idea is to make a terminal in the communication room that enter in contact with the USMC like the terminal on CIC, but if you hack the terminal you can enter in contact with any faction of the player choice and even send a beacon.

Let’s for example that one of the survivors is a CLF operative and discover that on the map big red one the WY was messing with the aliens and trying to use then as weapons, he is rescue and interrogated but is left alone by the CL and the Marines, in his mind the Marines are there to clear the mess that WY, so he who have engineering training, get tools from a MT or even become a MT, he go to the communication room, hack the terminal and if someone is not locking on the terminal he will not be notified that someone is using the communication, he contact the CLF and ask for extraction, the MP arrive on Communications and arrest the operative, a distress beacon is launch by the operative and he surrender.

The CLF squad have the mission to arrive on the Almayer, rescue the operative and get out on the same shuttle, so they arrive and begin searching for someone with Intel, they find a marine and kill him or only steal a radio planted by the operative, they have known now that the operative is in the brig and will be executed, they run to the brig gun blazing, they arrive on the brig kill the MPs and rescue the operative, but the marine move to kill then, a Firefight start and the marines kill all of then, they encounter the body of the prisoner without his head, probably dead during the firefight and everything go back to normal, a MP found the CLF shuttle and activate it, he take out his balaclava and the operative tell the world about what happen the Big Red One.


Implementation (Optional, if you have an idea how to implement it):

The implementation is based upon the Requisition hack, it would be needed to make a terminal in the communication room that can be used and to hack it is needed the tools to do the same action as hacking the requisition terminal, after it it would only be needed to change the terminal electronics with a multitool and change from Standard to the abroad, you put the terminal good as new and interact with it, you need to send a message and wait for a reply, the admins make the reply if they want and if the other party guarantee a ERT from their faction, the player can launch a beacon or he can launch a beacon either way and try luck. While that in CIC communication terminal would have a red big warning that someone is using the communication terminal on the communication room .

Like the idea, as the mps usually don't have anything to do after 30 minutes into the round, and it adds more to the survivors roles as well, since we all know that once they get on ship they either get a job from command(rare) or they go all crazy and smash lights/cause havoc. +1

More reasons to interact with other factions besides ERT's and spontaneous admin events would be great.

And giving more things to do to both MP's (usually ignored at 30 minute mark) and survivors (ignored 5ever the moment they are rescued).

It would be interesting to be able to hack a console and be able to contact other sources besides just the USCM. Though obviously at the risk of well, High Command being pissed, and the other factions not being very... polite. Though more potential RP scenarios I would go for. Plus in a desperate "everybody is dying" scenario, i'd imagine they'd be willing to contact anyone and everyone no matter the risk.

+1 To the general idea of contacting other factions. (Even if it's a terrible idea. It adds more potential for RP)

ARES telling everyone an unauthorized message was sent and then the MP's beating that person. +1
