I had an idea. Might be good, might be bad 😃 lets see what you guys say to it:
The current vanilla faction system has a glaring problem. Once you get set up its basicly impossible to recruit because if you get the wrong guy they can completely kill your faction.
My idea is to implement either more ranks to the faction system. For an example a tryout rank where the person is in the faction but basicly cant do anything other than pilot ships that the leader has deemed ok for tryouts to use.
The other way could be to implement something like the options in the safezone system where you can specify who is allowed to use what instead of just the blanket “Share with faction” option.
Either one of these two would allow factions to start recruiting without taking a massive risk while doing so. Yes coords could still be stolen but thats what safezones are for 😃
I know my faction isnt recruiting because of the massive risk it is to take in someone new.
I do see alot of solo people out there that wants to join factions. This could be a good way to get new folks acquainted with the server.
Again this is just an idea and i dont know if its even possible.
Just a thought 🙂
