Missles - A replacement for Grenades

Post by MMage on Sat Oct 16, 2010 4:34 am

(This could also be called Torpedoes, or something similar)

A natural transition for damaging players at range instead of a grenade, since we're using space ships, would be Missiles (or Torpedoes if we dun want to be as violent). A ship (player) could shoot them at another ship and damage them or their Shields. They would be stopped by our version of St. Nicks (name yet to be determined), and only a maximum of them, maybe 5, could be sent to one player at a time (Message displayed when too many missles are sent at one player yet to be determined).

I like the idea of missiles... and I think it would be a great idea give Northrop Grumman the honor of officially naming at least one of them, and then we can do some free advertising for them by working a Northrop Grumman symbol in the shop's background artwork. I hate flash ads, but I'm all for giving a nod to a company that is going to help us get this off the ground.

I like the idea of giving a nod to NG instead of a full out flashing neon sign of yay-i-tude. The nod of acknowledgment I had in mind was an emblem on the side of the missile, to be shown in the icon of the missile or baring that a tiny witty emote from NG at the point of impact!

Remembers dav2's suggestion about creating our own compound words to make names and wonders what kind of words we can create to name our missles...

Missivles or Missicles
The message in a bottle (a missive)
A tap on the shoulder
A 'love' tap
A 'kilroy was here' message
A 'gotcha'
These are all how the 'nades are used.
so the message can reflect that.
