Queen Egg Sack [Major Project probably]

Post by GoliathTheDespoiler » 19 May 2017, 07:35

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

Gives the ability to greatly reduce the cost of eggs at the sacrifice of movement and combat ability. Re-useable verb. Also requires drones to work.

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

Makes producing eggs in the early game easier and makes the game more lore friendly (since queens had to use an egg sack to produce eggs in the movies). Also gives returning the ability to move eggs for drones more reasons to happen.

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

New, gross sprite that looks similar to this:

At the end of the 'sack', eggs with spawn as a moveable object and won't mature until a drone moves it and right-clicks it. In there, the drone will find a prompt called 'set egg' or something. The the egg will begin to mature.

Egg cost will be something like half of what it is normally (250) and is further reduced as the queen upgrades. To create the sack, the queen must sacrifice all her plasma and wait 60 seconds for the sack to develop. Then, eggs become cheaper and can be produced en-masse. The queen cannot move or attack in this state, and must wait five seconds in order to be free of the sack (caused by moving)

Maybe as a bonus benefit she evolves faster or something as it may seem weak to be in that state and only have a 50% reduction.

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

Will write up some pseudocode tomorrow. I need sleep.

"Gross sprite similar to this image"
She looks sexy as fuck there, shut your mouth.

Seriously though, pretty sure this has been suggested before and it's been shot down many a time before. Regardless though, really like this idea but there'll need to be some realistic looks at it.

Gonna stay neutral though to see how others think of this.

As an aged and weathered old orc once said, "To hold on to something that has lived long past usefulness is unseemly, how much more so when that thing, is you?"

That one old man that USED to run around as Engineer building retarded table forts and developing relationships on a questionable level with sentry turrets. Now i run around as someone equally stupid, doing equally stupid shit as a Medic.

+1 While shot down before I suspect the plasma costs of eggs were not so high, so half that cost would be great. It would be nice for the eggs to be placed in a 3x3 instead of just one by one, to avoid stalling the production of eggs if drones are lazy, as well as some movement but that movement would easily be a crippling speed compared to normal speed.

It's kind of a duplicate of my suggestion that's a duplicate of someone else's suggestion.
CM was obviously inspired by Starcraft: Ghost opening. At least when marines takes too long to deploy.

Yeah, I was too lazy to look at older suggestions. So credit to those who thought of it first.
