  • 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 then let the community vote on changes, with that being said these are the things I would 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 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. The extra engineering certs were really cool, some of the extra deployables such as the sensor jammers, and full sized 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.

                I had another thought that I wanted to run past you guys, I had an idea for vehicle caps this was how I was thinking it could work, each continent has a max number of vehicles that each faction can have. So if you are in a fight for example on Ish. and you have the max number of vehicles but you still need a little more firepower you would have 2 options, you can go to Amerish (or another continent doesn't matter.) and create a vehicle it counts as one of Amerish's vehicles you can still take it to Ishundar but as long but as it exists it will still take up one of your vehicle slots for Amerish.

                When it comes to pulling vehicles from the sanctuary you can still pull unlimited vehicles from there so if you wanted to create a raid you can still do that without issues. So the vehicle caps simply limits how many vehicles that can be created in a specific continent from each faction but it does not limit how many vehicles from a specific faction can actually be on the continent. And if you want to get really crazy maybe make it so that the amount of vehicles you can create on a continent is determined by how many bases you control so as you take or lose bases the amount of vehicles you can generate is always fluctuating. Assuming that we are going back to the continent system without broadcast warp gates this could really shake things up since getting extra armor to a fight might become a bit more difficult if that armor has to travel across a continent or 2 before arriving. It also makes keeping vehicles alive a lot more important.

                  PS1 is about MMOFPS, I think limiting firepower would be completely the opposite of what it means to be an MMO. I would be very annoyed if I couldn't pull a vehicle if I logged on for an hour or 2. Many people would quit again killing the meaning of MMO

                    >Everyone to start on TOP RANK (I don't wish to grind again)
                    i would like at the very least an option for starting from scratch/not at max battle rank or with all certs, surely it can't hurt. though maybe it would need an exp multiplier


                    >Avoid any in game payments/micro transaction weapons/abilities. Just allow us to donate on website with top 10 donators toward running costs.
                    perhaps patreon in addition? for anyone interested in continued support, it's easy to set up
