Modular armor expansion

Post by TuckJohn »

I am going to get right to the idea here: more modular armor suits that have more slots, but the slots are contained in various boxes. For example, there might be one that has a 2x3 AND a 4x4 area. I think that this would make the modular armor system a whole lot more interesting.

EDIT: I just though of an alternative- all modular armor suits become like this, and each box corresponds to a different point on your body. For example the only place that a fusion core would be able to go would be on your chest, and batteries would fit nicely on your upper arms.

I think this makes it just more complex. :) Do you have a good example, that let us see the game-value of this?

Well, that is another suggestion. It's not good to put more than one suggestion in one thread, because it cannot be discussed properly.

I recommend to make this idea in a new thread with some basic example, because I think this is much more useful, I think for example to a slot-box looking like a "man". Sounds interesting.
Cool suggestion: Eatable MOUSE-pointers.

Assuming the overall area remains the same, all it does is take away a few possible equipment combinations and make possible some new ones. I'm not sure that's worth making the change.
