TL;DRThe idea would be to add, Microwave Transmission to Transport signals over long distances with radio towers.
Each radio link would have its own "Channel", set-up by the player on each towers, in order to separate the radio networks.
On each radio tower :
A red wire connected to the tower could be set to a Channel X, green wire could be set to an other channel Y
Radio towers in a very long radius would see each others and the link between 2 towers is enabled when a channel is the same on 2 differents radio tower.
Why ?in real life when you can't access by cable to a location (or if its too expensive) you use air Transmission
So i think this suggestion is not too fancy, since this is what is done in real life .
- Actually players can't monitor an outpost without power poles all the way to it.
- If you start an autonomous powered new base or outpost, you have to use power poles, all the way from your base to monitor it... (eg : solar powered mining outpost )
It may not concern a lot of players, but i think this would be a nice implement
