As I understand it, when players log off, their avatar will disappear. When they log in again, their avatar will reappear at the same location. If they were on a ship and the ship moved away while they were logged off, they would no longer be on it when they log in. This is a serious problem. Either the ship can only move when the entire crew is logged in or it may need to frequently go back and pick up those who were left behind. This will be trouble even for small crews, especially if they live in different time zones, but it could make large crews impractical. A solution would be to give the players the option of leaving their avatars in the game as a physical objects when they log off. Then the avatar would be carried along with the ship as it moves and still be on board when the player comes back. Since the avatar was still present, it could be attacked and it would be basically defenseless with the player logged off, so players would only want to do this in places they felt were relatively safe. Logging off in this way could put the avatar into a sleeping position, so anyone seeing it would know the player was logged off. It would be desirable, but not necessary, to design ships with designated sleeping areas where the sleeping avatars could be kept without getting in the way of other activities.
In Pvp and Pve and everything in between, players find interesting ways to win, gain an advantage, or prevent their loss in an impending demise. This concept is an attempt to bridge many styles into a coherent method. Simply : When you click logout and are flagged in combat, you logout, but your body remains in the game. functionality, people might be able to move your body into a jail cell. People could steal your non cosmetic clothes - Armor and Weapons. Hack into your Calabai-Yau Space Nano Pack and take your 50 bananas. When you log back in, and -wake up-. You find you have been put in a jail cell and are wearing inmate clothes. You could always suicide, with your nanoformer thats built into your body's cellular structure. Or you can negotiate with your captors. Maybe they have a robot, or a terminal where its all set up to let you go, if you accept the demand to pay them 100,000 credits. and they give your stuff back. Maybe theyre just bad pirates and stole your stuff and wanna see you go crazy, and or kill self. --- For PVE, when you are fist fighting a bear, and you suddenly disconect. Your body goes limp, you are still in combat though. The bear might kill you. Or, it could even be coded so when a player is in blackout state, the bear loses interest and walks away. This would need some testing or check though to prevent abuse. Like if Bear is at 80% health or more, it will, drop combat with player and move away from them. If at less than 80% it will stay in combat until you are dead, or a certain distance away. Your friends could drag your body away from combat? --- On ships, this gives you a chance to log back in, in the same spot and not far away on a resurrection node - or something else. It could even tie into a medical profession ?? skills to keep blackout patients in combat or alive longer? --- In general, player bodies shouldn't be persistent things. or we might end up with piles of player bodies, and mass graves or something crazy. Players could keep other players, bodies in game. By keeping them in combat. A stun gun turret or something, shooting them every few minutes, in the jail cell. Or, Mad scientist Doctors keeping them on some kind of life support --- I pose this idea half based on the quantum immortality, pretty much we are interfacing heavily from our dimension, with the Dual Universe Dimension. Even if the characters die, we their consciousness are still alive. When we go to log back in and force an argument with the dimension of Dual Universe that we are alive. Its forced to create us if we died. Its a little blurry on when you aren't dead though.
