Shark Cage (Social Hub)

Postby iamnota » Fri May 06, 2011 2:28 pm

Have any of you spawned in a buddy dive to find that the others are on the other side of the site, thus making you alone?

How about a few specialized servers that run 24/7 so people can plan buddy dives quickly and efficiently? I was thinking that it could be called Shark Cage, a small pool-ish place inside a circular rock shelf. The main idea is that players who want to start a buddy dive with others as soon as they start the server can plan out not only the site and when they are going to go, but also what path they are going to take and what attractions they are going to visit.

The Shark Cage may also have a few attractions of its own to keep people busy as they wait for others to buddy up with. I was thinking of a cave maze that is shallow enough for one-star players to use, but it can branch off into a deeper section. Also, there could be a straight drop that can get extremely deep (as deep as the simulator can handle) with stops every 25 feet or so. Various marine life is swimming around for decoration as well. (Hey, maybe we can combine the marine life an the deep section so you can fight off A GIANT OCTOPUS THAT CAN GRAB YOU AND SHOVE YOU IN ITS MOUTH.) *Ahem* The site is hot, so players cannot freeze to death while waiting. Also, there is a station that can be used to refill your air.

Maybe the site can be used for celebrations as well? Since you can't freeze, you can stay as long ad you want to celebrate a special occasion!

When you spawn in the site, use the Teletransporter tool to move near the buddy then descend.

Except for the Deathmatch site...It is disabled...or @ least it was :-)

Alright, the teleportation tool is effective. However, players can still plan a trip in real time before starting.
