Outfit Airships or Outfit Ground Bases


I'm curious what the community's position is on these two options. Of course, having both is possible, but it takes time to implement things. The end goal is, however, identical: give a bonus objective/asset to Outfits.

So would you prefer to have Outfit Airships or Outfit Bases more?

I prefer the airship. I could see outfit bases that could be deployed turn into nothing but a spam fest or fight over who has the best location.

With the Outfit ship. It gives you the possibility to stage for invasions with your outfit. Also gives us something extra to attack when space warfare becomes available later down the line.

My vote is for the airships, reminds of the days back on BF2142 and deploying aircraft and drop pods from titans, i think PS2 could use that.

But then again could you not also use actual ships? command and control aircraft carriers circling in the water around the continents. Firing on one another trying to get boarding actions over to the other, then again that would be cool with airships as well wouldn't it?

I vote for airships, It would be cool to hang out with your outfit and I'd love to have a window and be able to look out over the world.

However, I would also like to see bases or defences that are deployable by outfits that help players on the ground defend a position.

Re: Outfit Airships or Outfit Ground Bases


They would have to add bases as they go, its the same limitation as the original idea on idea labs.

Airship would be more feasible. But you would have to limit how many can be on cont.

I don't think anyone here has the same idea of how these would be implemented and used.

A way to regulate it is by making outfits spend a high amount of points to use them. For instance. To spawn a airbase or I guess ground base they could make it 500,000 outfit points. You would see a few every now and then and it would help cut back on the maps being spammed by airships/ground bases.

*It also SOE gives us something to do with all those outfit points we accumulated in PS1 outside of customizing our outfit gear and the such.

I think it would have to depend on which way the Dev's would go with regard to the permanence of Outfit deployables. If they can be captured and/or destroyed, then I'm for ground bases. If they are invulnerable, then I'm for the airship (orbital platform) idea.

Airships have the downside of no ability to pull ground vehicles, really. Well, there are ways, but they would feel odd.

In any case, they have to be expensive. Or else you could make a wall from one base to another using outposts.

If they brought back some form of the loadstar I wouldn't see it being a issue.

Well yeah, this plan aint due to launch anyways, so it could be some lodestar-like thing will come by that time.

Other idea could be some lodestar-like drop pod for vehicles or big ass parachutes

Nothing would be cooler than a Outfit Airship IMO. Not so sure it will happen, but I want it to.
