A page for pilots

Post by LordLoko » 17 Sep 2016, 18:30

We need a page for pilots.
However, I have a few questions:

1)What department they are?

Supply? Marine? Command? An entire new category?
Where they should be added?

2)What could be in the description?
Besides "Press button to fly up and down"

3)An image
This can be easily achieved by SecretStamos

To my knowledge, they're to be considered Bridge Staff.

Yeah, for now the Pilot's job is simple. But an important thing to note is that whatever the PO is flying will fly significantly faster and will recharge 25% faster.

Gear holds some importance. The Flak Jacket allows the Pilot to keep standing upon entering transit, while their PO helmet protects against three hugs.

I've been wanting to play as a Pilot Officer for a little while so to prepare myself I tried to look up anything on the Wiki that might help me. Nothing was there so I tried to look for a guide on the forums and still nothing.

Eventually I figured out that there's some dialogue from Ferro in the movie Aliens and I wrote down basically everything she said and added in my own little points here and there, but still the point is it'd be super helpful for a guide to be created.

They are in the command tree.

I can write about the pilot if needed.

Someone will yell at Josh.

Good hunting.

You could probably write about how they can do minor repairs to the Rasputin and that,due to the PO's excellent flying skills,they can half the time it takes for the rasp to land.

Pilots outrank the majority of marines (outside command staff) regrading matters on the Rasp/Pod.

A lot of pilots somehow don't realise this.

I wouldn't mind writing a pilot's guide but it'll be all fluff and no meat.
