7 days up, 7 days remaining here. a quick glance over the entries shows that while there are some very nice entries, there is also a decided lack of reading the directions.

this would be a good point for some of you (you know who you are) to review the contest rules (as open-ended as they are) and adjust your submissions accordingly

Mine is actually a pair of Elites that adds a depth to the universe (more going on than just what WE are doing).

1st Guy:

Name: Captain Ahab
Ship: Pirate Faction, Destroyer
Extras: Cruiser level armor/shield/hull HP. 25% faster than normal destroyers. 30% more firepower than a normal pirate destroyer.

Drops: I am not overly familiar with this new upgrade system, but pick something nice that would make sense to find on his ship. Not a great drop, but a nice one.

Image:


Description: Captain Ahab is perpetually on the hunt for the White Whale (2nd Elite of this pair) that destroyed his transport tug. He narrowly escaped his ship before its destruction in a personal space suit, normally used for maintenance and repairs of the ship's hull. After the ship was destroyed, the White Whale circled around and bit off his leg. He managed to tie off the open end of his space suit before dying of exposure, but lost a lot of blood. He drifted in space for 4 hours, nearly bleeding to death, before being found by an ICC smuggler. The heavy ECM use of the smuggler prevented them detecting him via sensors, but fortunately, they happened to pass very near him on the way to scavenge the ship wreck, and someone saw him out a window on the port side of the vessel.

He recovers in an ICC medical facility, hidden in a crater on the contested moon of Wecamp in the Luyten system. After his rehabilitation, he is offered a command of a ICC cruiser and a military rank to fight against the UGTO. He rejects the offer and disappears for several months, until he is spotted piloting a make-shift pirate vessel in void space between systems.

He is not hostile to anyone, unless you open fire on him, and welcomes any help in his quest to kill the White Whale that took his leg. However, the slightest damage of friendly fire, cross-fire, or splash damage, and his rage consumes him. He will turn his fire on you and destroy you before returning to the hunt of the White Whale.

----------------------------------------------------------------

2nd Guy:

Name: White Whale
Ship: Gaifen (make it white and larger than a normal gaifen if you can).
Extras: HP on the order of about a Mir Cruiser. Fast and aggressive.

Drops: White Gaifen Skin (15% bonus to armor HP on Fore arc).

Image:


Description: The White Whale is a genetic abnormality among gaifens. It is stronger and faster than normal gaifens, coupled with an agressive disposition. His white skin makes him very photosensitive, so he always stays in void space and preys on smuggler ships that happen by. You will never find him out near a planet or within the orbital ring of a system's outer-most planet.

He kills anything on sight, but has a reasonable survival instinct. This means he will run away (and even long jump away) from a fight against a dread/station or large fleet of ships. He will stay and fight against a fleet of 10pts or less (where a scout is 1pt, frigate is 2pts, dessie is 3 pts and cruisers are 4 pts. Supply ships count as 3pts and transports are 1 point since you cant drop troops on a gaifen). Any ship larger than a cruiser will make it long jump back out into the void and the hunt begins all over again. A point total of more than 10 within 6000gu of him will make him flee as well. This point total does not include Ahab's ship, but will include Mir ships or any other AI ships that happen by. AI supply ships should not come to a player's aide (if this is possible), but otherwise will not count in the fleet-size point count (they arent that useful anyway).

When/if the White Whale is killed, he respawns at some random location in void space, somewhat around Luyten, and Ahab can begin again. If Ahab makes the final blow, everyone in the fleet gets some medium-level enhancement as well as the Gaifen Slayer Medal (worth 500 pres, only received once of course).

----------------------------------------------------

Operation: The White Whale wanders around in the void, some distance from Luyten. Captain Ahab appears at Ihzack. From there, he makes short 20-25k gu jumps every couple minutes, zig-zagging his way to the White Whale. If no players are present, they engage in battle and he dies. He then respawns some time later at Ihzack and begins again.

If the White Whale is made to flee, he returns to Ihzack for repairs and then begins the hunt again. With player assistance, he can be a valuable helper in the fight to kill the White Whale, but accidentaly friendly fire to him will result in him becoming a real liability to your ability to stay in the fight.

The idea is that you have to use jump tracking to follow Ahab as a means of finding the White Whale, and then carefully (or screw Ahab and go willy nilly) kill the White Whale, using small ships and teamwork. I want this to be difficult for veterans, but still be something new players can do and participate in. It is almost like a prototype 'mission' for the mission system.

Note: Cloaked ships are counted in the ship point total that can cause the gaifen to flee. We can say the gaifen can 'sense' the ship with special gaifen organs. No sneaky sneaky giant fleets against the White Whale.

How do you guys feel about entries that are outside-the-box and might require AI or something that currently doesn't exist? All my ideas are a little beyond the norm, because I like the idea of elites doing more than simply dogfighting in that awful AI way.

I can't speak for everyone but I'd say:

- We're happy to hear the idea
but it is much less likely to be implemented than just a stupid AI fighter

and I'd also say you should feel free to also suggest 3 other elites who are stupid AI fighters. (This goes for the Ahab/Gaifen pair as well - interesting, and unique, but barring custom AI programming time, not super likely, so feel free to not count those against your limit)

Also, I'll go ahead and share that no elite named Joe Stupid is going to make it into the game. Or ScoutALot. Or Wehadababyitsabug. And we're not going to add an enhancement to give control of the MI (especially since that's not even possible).

Not that that disqualifies the entries entirely, but the end result may not be very recognizable if we take some portion of that suggestion...
