  • OpolE's General Ideas before launch...

    Hi all, I've had a little read of the existing posts here: Here's my ideas currently. It's been a quiet weekend for once haha! :P

    The General Idea
    To restore the game fully without any nerfs or mods to a point where we all loved the game. (I believe quicker/not delayed respawn is one of those things that won't worry anyone from live day 1)
    Once game goes live then the current interested community can vote/discuss nerfs or mods to be made.
    Once game goes live then the current interested community can vote discuss further development.
    Stats website. Stats DRIVES MORE PLAY.
    HUB for outfits on the main site to show their strength and existence.
    Everyone to start on TOP RANK (I don't wish to grind again) CR might have to be rebuilt again to prove team leading skills and dedication?
    Strong server in good location for EU and US players.
    Invest time and energy in marketing the game when its near completion. Get people involved and focus group ways people can help.
    Keep it fun and don't run it like a large company like SONY, but also keep it professional.

    Avoid
    I believe the 100% PvP is how it should stay.
    No AI, no bots or side missions please.
    Max factory and previous devs creations avoid.
    Avoid any in game payments/micro transaction weapons/abilities. Just allow us to donate on website with top 10 donators toward running costs.
    No quick knife, no quick reload stuff. Basically don't do PS2/BF2/COD upgrade crap.

    Recognition
    Anyone registered to the forums by a certain cut off date gets emailed via forum private message a 1 off code to apply LOYAL/LEGACY SOLDIER ARMOUR (Similar to the BR25 CR5 armour) It's to distinguish people who have kept with Planetside 1 since DBG shut the servers for the last time.
    Anyone on Discord with regular postings/contribution could get the LOYAL/LEGACY SOLDIER ARMOUR too.
    Loyal chat channel in game which spans across all 3 empires. Basically non tactical chat but keeps us all enjoying the game with each other.

    Definitely some cool ideas in there. We're going to be doing some of these things for sure. Obviously, the #1 goal is perfect emulation of PlanetSide 1 just as it was. Any kind of custom content would be a separate server.

    Support for stat websites and world control maps will be most likely be a thing.

    Not sure how xp will work yet, but it's possible we can run double xp weekends and such to help with grinding rank back and encouraging gameplay. As far as veteran rewards go, it's a cool idea but no concrete plans. Would like to do something.

      Some interesting points,

      I wouldn't bother with BR40 or even BR25, stick with BR20/CR5. Promotes teamplay and focuses less on people with everything. Also means that ALTs are useful.

      More rewards (Exp etc) for re-securing a base.

      Start everyone at BR1, just allow people to reserve names.

      No BFRs either

        Welcome the forums, Mirror.

        Definitely some good suggestions there. Most people are in favor of a BR20 or BR25 cap. Would like to hear more of your thoughts in Discord as well!

          I'll stop by at some point. Only stumbled across this the other day when Kanya pointed it out.

          I was on the test server earlier and was reminiscing like crazy. Well done to all who have got this project this far

            I really like what Opoie, is saying to put the game back to where it was when it first came out then let the community vote on things to change from that point, with that being said these are the things I would want to vote for, in my opinion not EVERY change made to the game was terrible it was a mixed bag... The greatest fallacy SOE had when it came to planetside was allowing hackers to become rampant with no source of control, not fixing bugs, and if something that they changed was REALLY hated not doing anything to address it at all. But they did do a few things right things I like are:

            1.the commendation system that allowed you to get better versions of things like the liberator to the vulture. I liked that because it was based on skill and was not a micro transaction,

            2. the patches that you could earn and display on your character (which went with the commendation system.)

            3. The hacking certs that allowed you to hack bases and do different things to them.

            4. I thought some of the added engineering certs were really cool, some of the extra deployables such as the sensor jammers, and deployable turrets.

            5. I liked the phantasm that was an added ship as well as the galaxy gunship

            Those would be the things I would like to stick around and if we do these it would make sense to at least put the top br rank to 23 instead of just 20 since there are more things to cert in it wouldn't hurt to have a few more certs to use.

              ^Loving all of those point Raptor. Earning the Vulture and all 3 flight BFR's was just amazing.
