While playing Deus Ex: Human Revolution, I always pondered on a concept in regards too the ‘hacking’ system. This concept was a what if the hacking mechanism was added to the Dark RP/Other RP gamemodes keypad crackers in Gmod. Now granted… I hate the present keypads/keypad hacking mechanisms which are prominent in Dark RP, and several other RP gamemodes. They are very abuseable with fading doors, and are probably the cheapest example of progress-bar crap. A Deus Ex hacking system would change this. The keypad cracker would change for a hacking device which would basically put the player up against the keypads security. Once the Keypad is hacked it fries, and has to be repaired and whatever the button was configured too will automatically become nil’ed [Fading Door Abuse? Lolnope.] If the hack fails, and the computer wins… The owner of the keypad is warned about the hack attempt and the player is automatically wanted by the police.
I’m unsure of how possible a system like this would be, but it would be a massive improvement over present systems. If it could also incorporate it’s own fading door/wire system it would be a massive plus.
