Pac had a very great idea, and I have built off of it, going into more detail. I would just like to point out SOME of the features that will be presented in Ocean Wars.
Build Zones Pretty normal Restrict no-clip to build zones Toolgun/phys/grav gun are disabled outside of zones to promote reality Group Systems Voice chat between only groups & faction wide Automatically added to prop protection when you join a group(advanced dupe is not included) Dupe Protection Just because you're in a group doesnt mean people have access to duplicate your items/creations. A seperate menu is used for this) Map Different Islands per faction Neutral islands with certain materials/money that are accredited to a salary system per faction Random 'letters in a bottle' including goodies floating and chests on islands with materials/money A chance that while you're swimming you could be 'attacked' by a 'shark' Fishing Areas On certain islands you can buy poles, lines, hooks and bait from an NPC Multitude of different fish, chances for them to escape, chances your line breaks depending on weight of fish etc. NPC's Multitude around the maps. Especially in faction spawns. Buy/sell materials/products Economy Every item is based off of economy, materials etc. ie If your faction spawn doesnt have any hooks, you have to go get steel to make hooks. etc If there are less, the price is higher, if there are more the price is lower. Mixtures A lot of items are based off of mixtures, which are then sold to the economy or used for yourself. Resources Neutral islands give a certain amount of resources if held Oil, metal, gun powder, concrete, rope, rum etc - not specifically used for building(to not hinder the build aspect of this game. Also to stray from stranded) You can also buy all of these from NPC's You can 'rob' other factions resources every x minutes Upgrades Through a menu system you can increase the health of your boat for money/product 'Learn' how to aim for better accuracy Expirement and find more effective bullets for more damage etc Stats system
All stats, money and materials will be added to a off-server MySQL server, and backed up.
