battlefield illumination flight mission - a new little job for pilot

Post by misto » 19 Jul 2017, 02:45

Summary (a quick, 2-3 sentence summary): a new little job for the cas ds pilot to engage in, having their ds shit flares all over the place

Benefits (How this will benefit the server and game as a whole): a new illumination flare deployment system to install on DS(not countermeasure flares, illumination flares) a new button for pilot to press, a new option for sl, light up the night

Details (Description of how you think this would work, the benefits, etc): your poor grunts can't throw flares very far and their flare supply doesnt last too long, how can we help them down there in the dark? although a real military battlefield illumination operation would probably be about dumping out tons of big incredibly bright flares from the plane high up that slowly parachute down, there are plenty of pre-existing flare assets ingame you can use

Implementation (Optional, if you have an idea how to implement it): the simplest way to do it would be to have sl laser a spot, pilot pushes button, a cute sound clip of the ds swooping over and shitting out its flares plays, and a bunch of the lit flare objects are spawned in a wide radius around where the laser pointed, perfect for prepping a location for a push by the ground troops or lighting up a spot for anyone with a railscoped rifle to try to make shots

counterbalancing considerations: well first of all the flare deployment gear will need to take up a spot on the ds, leaving you less boom boom. you can also make these flares inferior and last fewer minutes than the current infantry flares, if you like. ah, and of course, this doesnt work underground, or in the almayer, or in other places where the ds shouldnt logically be dumping flares

This sound ridiculously complicated and totally illogical!
