Jegleebow20 got a reaction from GunDeva in Can we have droids like in star wars?
In this video at 7:30 he shows off a drone he made, so I guess if you added some more features then you could have a "kamikaze" drone that rams its self into enemies and explode. But you can't have them shoot people on sight
Jegleebow20 got a reaction from Armedwithwings in how will the large crew that large ship may have work in a game like this
I think for many companies, they would fight and after the battle they would do repairs. But if it were a battle or war between nations or huge orgs, then they might have repair men that have to act fast enough to dodge shots in order to fix up the ship.
Jegleebow20 got a reaction from Warden in Aliens/Slaves/Parasites/Pandemics
I was just thinking about aliens and different kinds there could be, like Flood-like or Predator-like or even ones like the Na'vi from the movie Avatar.
The idea of a nearly catastrophic parasitic alien filled my brain with al sorts of ideas of their life cycles, emergent behaviors, and viralness. A flood-like organism could decimate entire planets, eventually causing a organization to form that would quarntine that sector. Also a company could weaponize the parasite and conquer worlds. There'd have to be vaccines that have to be researched and discovered too, so that the disease/parasite isn't unstoppable.
Then I thought about races like the Ood and Vortigaunts, which are both slave races. So that got me thinking would DU give you the option to travel to some planet with primitive aliens and using your superior technology you could conquer them and then enslave them. Now of course there would have to be different types of slavery; such as chattel, servant, war drudges, work serfs, and livestock. All of these would have different buffs, but you could just have general slaves that follow your commands. Those buffs would be like, for example: you are attacked by a band of raiders, so you would use war drudges because the other slave types do less damage and are slower fighters than the war drudges. Also you could face rebellions, uprisings, and slave runaways.
I believe all of these would add more emersion, plus some really cool scenarios could arise from it.

First of all im a horrible person,
So i would love a way to knock out people, allowing you to handcuff them and throw them, stripped of their euipment, in a cell and let them rot or force them to do manual labour,
of course to make this vaiable persons would either have to RP a fear of death (unlikely) or some gameplay mechanic should punish you for dying because with your euipment gone, that would be the only fear of dying and players would just provoke you shooting them.
Avoiding the Slavery you could just capture an important person (the master engineer who is unimaginly skilled in coming up with designs) or someone who has some skill (there where skills, right?) incredibly high, making them valuable.
(please let me be the evil slaver foundation making trips to undefended core worlds taking slaves and be the most hated/wanted player in the universe)
