A few weeks ago i came up with an idea for a new mission that as a whole new concept to the game.
i spoke to a Dev about this idea who was in quarks bar instance 3 and to be honest he loved it and said now that sounds fun and its not like any other ideas that he as witnessed before.
now here is a look at the idea and to see what feed back i get back from it.
now the problem i found is that i have a small ship the stalker and i can only ever do one mission as a rule with this ship for it to be of any use and is designed for small craft
called the vault.
with the idea i have it would produce a new mission that i can say everyone out there would love too see.
on one of the the story line missions under the Romulus story lines there's a mission where you have to call down a orbital strike on some scorpion fighters and then again on a very large turret and then lastly on a ion gate
and as you go through the mission in the distance you can see another large turret.
so my idea would be to see a ground mission on planet where you actually fly small craft.
with this comes more ideas to regards ships not only would be able to use the fighters that's already available but to also buy new ships in the lines of small bombers.
there could be these large turrets to take out as well as bunkers shield generators and many other targets to destroy .
the mission could also be in 2 parts so the space mission would be to escort a carrier to the planet while fighting multiple enemy ships.
another new aspect which i also would find fun would be the option to be able to dock your small craft on a carrier another players or a none players ship
but to be able to see what is happening in space while your docked on the players ship.
re spawn point would be from the players carrier.
it would bring to life the fact the smaller ships you can purchase from the c-store can actually be used on a more regular basis and that more ships can be added to the c-store for purchase (bombers).
if you like this idea do feel free to keep this post running i very rarely use forums so if its not gonna be viewed much then the idea will drift away .
i doubt there will be very little if any negative feed back on this one so hope you enjoy my idea and if this works out i will post more ideas in the future.
good luck all hope to see you in game.
do please leave a comment it only takes a few seconds ty.
I would love to see this .
it would make game play outstanding.
the money cryptic could make from this could be a good thing for those guys too with new smaller craft.
imagine an engineer puling out one of those big turrets
could also be a pvp one too where one sides on the ground using the turrets and bunkers
shooting down small craft the whole thing just rocks.
Not only would I love to be able to fly shuttles/fighters in ground maps, but I'd love hybrid space/ground maps in general. Imagine fighting the Borg or the Tholians on the surface of some frozen moon, and looking up to see dozens of player ships battling an enemy armada in space! It could even be done for STFs and PvP maps as well!
