Let's be honest, all of us here have probably experienced a time where the antags have managed to murderbone everyone and now it's just a boring chore of just waiting for the shuttle to arrive sooooo, i propose two new stuff, Purchasable Mercenaries & the ability to fire up a distress signal when 30-50%<- of the crew remain. Purchasable mercs/memeteams, Basically imagine ERT except that some may have differing goals to another e.g Space police force may have the goal to actively assist the crew whilst a clown squad may meme the crew. This should be similar to how we currently can order a different shuttle at the comms console although also factoring in the remaining alive crewmembers as well, so for example one of the options could be - The Greytide - 3000 credits - 75% alive crew remaining. (Insert fluff here) Naturally as more and more people die, the better option get unlocked ranging from - Retarded genetically fucked cluwnes all the way too perhaps Death Squad (With a massive increase in price as well) Essentially when ordered, the ghosts will be given an option to join as the team with a minimum & maximum limit placed, otherwise the order would be refunded due to the lack of lads to justify the price & to prevent 69+ deathsquad boys from appearing. Now then this brings us to the Distress signal. What is this - Essentially the ability to hire a random merc group for free at the comms console after a certain percentage of crew have died , naturally there should be the risk of them being bad or uselessly memey (25% good , 50% meme , 25% bad) and of course a cooldown to prevent the ability to spam in new lads. Examples of bad mercs could include : face hugged greyshirts, a sentient rogue hulk , a crazed power-gamer,etc. Essentially this will be a way for ghosters who've died earlier to join back in the round , and should also motivate the cargonians to actually try to make money a tad more. This should also hopefully be flexible enough to pretty much let the mercenaries be whatever the coder's decide whether it's a cat squad or something more Immersive. Feel free to post example merc/meme/bad teams below with this format. Team Name - Credit cost - % of required remaining alive crew - Min & Max allowed player ranges - Description The Primal Parade - 2500 - 75% - 2 - 8 - A bunch of leftover sentient monkeys from the cloning bays, deemed too autistic to function adequately like the other normal monkeys.
