Boarding Mod Idea?
« on: February 29, 2012, 02:40:22 PM »

Yea, that's what the title says.  When and if you board ship (with this mod, if it ever gets made), the background may change to what appears to be the inside of a ship.  You gain control of all the marines you have and can send them out like fighters, a few soldiers to each "squad" (if this is applied, the price of each "marine" you can get at the orbital station would go up).  During a boarding fight, there would be no momentum for the marines.  They would usually be armed with pulse lasers, machine guns, or maybe even a single bomb from the standard bomb bay. ;)The general mechanics of Starfarer would still be present, such as shields and their effects (supercharged, not being able to fire when overcharged).  Probably one of the most suggested things to be added to the game, why not a mod?

Thats probably not possible with the current engine I would guess. It would be a lot of work if It was possible and even then it wouldnt look so good. Nice idea though.
