Humans can crawl and Hide Under Tables

Post by Mister Jeether » 22 Jul 2017, 23:07

Summary (a quick, 2-3 sentence summary): Making Humans be able to crawl and hide under tables (This will NOT completely hide one's sprite, but most of it, and also, xenos will manage to see you through walls).

Benefits (How this will benefit the server and game as a whole): Immersion, A last hiding resource

Details (Description of how you think this would work, the benefits, etc): The player would use the rest verb to crawl underneath a table (Doesn't work with reinforced ones) pretty simple.

Implementation (Optional, if you have an idea how to implement it): Some coding should do.

This would be 100% used for balance-breaking cheese.

it also unfortunately doesnt make sense in the context of the game's rules. what would the tables be made out of, that the aliens wouldnt be able to sense humans thru them? they can see humans thru walls and solid rock as it stands

As i stated above, it would be a very last hiding resource against the aliens, But i believe devs can just insert a feature that humans hiding under tables doesn't count as alive, An example for this to be used is the rounds that an alien searches EVERY single locker on the map for survivors, or if the aliens are frenetically running against survivors, so if you find yourself in one of those situations as a colonist, you are mostly, dead, because xenos will probably run for you till the depths of hell.
