Interactive Boarding
« on: July 29, 2012, 02:41:34 PM »

I do not know how it would be done but it would be cool if when you hit the board key to board a ship (if the boarding system stays the way it does, which I hope it will not) you switch to a screen like the one for the normal battles except you are in control of your squad of marines trying to take control of different sections of the ship and eventually the cockpit. The system could mostly be the same except instead of fighting in space with battleships and fighters you would be in small corridors with marines, and you would control all of the marines (or the squad leader). Also if they implement something like this you could have a couple upgrades for your marines like better armor and weapons to fight with, or maybe even specialized equipment like small robots to assist you in combat. I only see this system working on larger ships because on fighters and bombers the only room is the cockpit. Anyway I know if they do add this it will probably take a very long time to complete but I think it would make the game slightly better, and hey if they add this then maybe it would help them add in planetary battles for control of the surface, or for capturing a space station. Tell me what you think though I'm guessing they'll never add it, but you can dream right? :D

Thanks, but I'm not that new I've just never registered until now because I never need to. Yes, I know it is sort of stalker-ish but whatever. :P
