Edit Character

Post by Sovieteer » 17 Feb 2016, 20:58

Summary (a quick, 2-3 sentence summary): Well, an 'Edit character' verb in the 'Ghost' tab would allow observers and dead players to edit their characters and their panels as if you were setting up your character in the lobby.

Benefits (How this will benefit the server and game as a whole): As people try to ready up in the lobby, they sometimes tend to join late and not be able to remove that one flaw in their character or add that one item before the round starts. Well, if they could edit it as an observer or as a dead player, they can set up whatever they need to before the next round starts and have time to ready up. This would allow for faster set ups and in general an easier way to set up a character midround.

Details (Description of how you think this would work, the benefits, etc): Unbound Travels once had an 'Edit character' option, and it was either custom coded or it was taken from Baystation 12. I'm not sure, but I'd ask around as to how to get the verb and such edited in.

Implementation (Optional, if you have an idea how to implement it): The only way I know how to implement is by coding, so the coding team would have to search around and try to find out how, or request something from Baystation.

I can verify, that this is codeable. My RP server I use has it as a ghost option, which is nice for when I need to make character tweaks.

+1 I think this would be neat to have. It'd be something to do whilst you're dead, and allow people to be constructive as well.

If this is possible +1 because many a time I have chosen to observe and then realize I still had sine character items to choose.

+1 I think it would make people more creative + have something to do while their dead, aside from watching the "show".

+1, gives us plenty of time to prep for the next round, and just something to do in general.

+1

I would appreciate this feature GREATLY- I would love to create a more in-depth character, with more information and better flavor text, but often find myself rushing to select the right jobs and ready up in order to avoid getting left behind in the round-start rush. This would make it much easier for myself and many others to create better characters.

A definite +1 from me, I feel rushed to create a character upon round start.

Adding a +1 but also noting that you can just...not ready and then have all the time in the world to setup your character. So its probably not too urgent

+1, shamed I didn't think of suggesting that earlier. Good one.
CM was obviously inspired by Starcraft: Ghost opening. At least when marines takes too long to deploy.

+1, it's amazing the mistakes you can make with a character trying to rush to get in a round.
