PostSubject: Wow, Dem Pods   Tue Apr 03, 2012 3:02 pm

I think there could be a specific type of bed called 'Cryo' that would be fairly inexpensive but not so much so as the vanilla Bed. Essentially, the Cryo bed block would look for optimum conditions, that is, being surrounded by iron and at least one glass block all within 1 block of the bed. Once you make a cryopod, you can connect it wirelessly to a Crytube Terminal block that opens a GUI to open, check life signs, or freeze the pods linked to it. This could serve as how you log off when you're in space; Open the cryo pod, hop in, and you'll return to the MC splash screen. This is for space, mind you. When you're planetside you can exit via bed.

Essentially I think not only would this be a cool aesthetic, it'd also stop ragequitting midbattle. You could also freeze NPCs or other players to conserve supplies, of course. NPCs, as stated on the MCForum OP, will wander around, crew gunnery stations, etc. The problem is, they also go to chests and look for food, so you'll need a ton of rations..or cryo pods Wink

Will shooting active cryo pods have negative consequences for the person inside?

I'd hope so, yeah. There's a plugin called CombatLog that spawns an NPC of you after you logout for PVP servers, so the concept isn't unfeasible. This might also make you want to install more defenses to keep people from killing you in your sleep, but I also forsee Space Odyssey 2001 scenarios taking place if the AIs come into the picture. Very Happy

We aren't putting that much effort in to making AIs. They will be basic.

Basic AIs can still get pissed off. Take cleverbot, for instance..

Yeah....

But they made sure CleverBot doesn't kill you in your sleep.

I do think that cryo-pods are a good idea, but you shouldn't only be able to log off when you go into one.

Have you ever played on an anarchy server? You show up in your hard earned diamond tools and armor, and duke it out with a similarly equipped opponent. You know he has diamonds on him, so you eagerly rush to make the killing blow-

USER has left the game.



Some people are just that wussy. And I think being in expensive spaceships will only exacerbate the issue. Perhaps when you try to log off 'You cannot Disconnect during combat' or just leave a ghost of the ship to be destroyed. I still think cryo pods would be a more elegant solution, having entire ships disappear once you 'sleep' and then reappearing when you come to again.

It's like, well, being frozen alive. I'd imagine you WOULD be crying when you stepped out lol!

In theory, you wouldn't feel anything.

not only that but then you get killed by someone using like a stone sword that was just watching from the sidelines... i do think that would be a good idea, maybe only able to log off in a cryotube and/or while not in combat. by the way if there going to be a way to scavenge debris from destroyed ships for materials? because if there isnt there should be a way to.

I approve this idea. Cryotubes could be very useful.

Test to see if sigs just magically started working again.

Okay, they do.

Anyway, I don't see the point.

You can't log out when not sleeping? Sounds like a challenge to me.

It's really not that hard. If you have a cryobay in your ship, stroll over and walk to it to temporarily make your ship, and any associated fleet, to vanish, and you log off. I don't see how that could be inconvenient for anyone not in combat.

What if you're not on a ship? You could get stranded. Or your cryotanks could be full of neurotoxin.

I said this only applies to when the mod sees you as on a ship. Groundside you can log off whenever.

Though to be honest, I don't think this could work. The captain could just have his cryobay right on the bridge...I think there should be the ghost ship method mentioned earlier that lasts for 30 seconds so you don't want to log off in a warzone. I still think the cryotube could serve the other functions, though, and still be a mildly useful cosmetic..

Raging deleted, it didn't contribute to our thread.
