Maybe they will reskin the game completely and leave all the original mechanics intact. Then they can at least sell camo.

I remember one Fan Faire they were talking about doing that. In fact, that's what they were originally intending to do. But I guess it sort of got pushed away or the idea for PS2 stemmed from that. Either way I remember being really excited when they announced they were going to give PS1 a graphical update, even though I think the old skool graphics give it a charm.

Guess it depends how far along they were in the reskin project. I thought there was speculation that they scrapped that project to do PS2 because PS1 coding is a mess. It would be awesome to see if they do it though! My guess, they will release F2P with cash shop and sell weapons and ammo. Probably make nades cost resources or something (bye nade spam). I hope they don't think about making vehicles cost resources though. I really don't like it in PS2. Vehicle timers are enough with the amount of vehicles there are in PS1.

How about don't touch anything to much in game and just have

x2 XP for 100 station cash (Along those lines sort of thing) People might want to level up chars quicker and have everything they want. I certainly would like CR5's on all teams.

Maybee let clans or individuals rename or take ownership of bases just to get at their enemies. Let then know where they love the best and they will defend it at all costs to keep honour.

Nothing that makes me think, oh fuck I can't plasma nade now while running up steps. I quit sort of thing

Quicker spawn for station cash. I hate having a large as hell 1 minute wait after a day of playing. The base goes down and I end up at a tower

Is this still a thing?

Because, honestly, I think I'd rather play the Original now...

I doubt they will redo it with the new engine, but if the code is a mess, we won't be seeing much upgrades to classic PS1. Maybe new hats and stuff. Remember Santa hats? Those seem to be easy.

Hey, but who knows, they might surprise us.

Re: PS 1 going free to play


Would have been nice to have had a reskin with updated shit. But we get a rifle game where the implementation of all other weapons are terrible. Its a sniper/ automatic rifle game. Shotguns and HA weapons that were so loved in the original are crap. Forget carrying a shotgun around if you leave a biolab. Even in the biolab the distance can be too far. Up close the shotgun is stupidly overpowered but nigh on useless due to the layout of the maps, which are suited for the auto rifle.

Tried PS2 and found it boring, can't wait to get into PS1.

Edit: Actually, I found it insulting.

Re: PS 1 going free to play


We should attempt a kind of marketing push once PS1 goes F2P to get people back into the game. There's a lot of buzz around PlanetSide lately with PS2 coming up. If we organize "PlanetSide 1 days" and spread the word on PlanetSide Universe, etc. to try and get as many people back into PS1 on that day as possible and create some epic battles we might be able to jolt up the population again.

Population is really the only thing stopping us going back to the "good old days" (well that and maybe BR40). What do we need, 300 people for a poplock?
