DarkSpace Mercenaries

PIRATES have invaded the metaverse, these are not your everyday pirates, these are Enemies of the MetaVerse! Bounties ranging from 2000 to 15000 Credits* have been released for their destruction, gather your crew, ready your weapons, and destroy the pirate scum!

Rules:

Objectives:
  • Destroy Enemies of the MetaVerse for Credits.
  • Bring in sensor logs (Screenshot**) of the destruction to redeem your prize.

Bounties:
  • To be announced.


Feedback is welcome, try to keep criticism constructive, all posts here.

*Event and prizes pending staff approval.

**Screenshots are captured using ALT+T, they are stored in the .cache/darkspace directory of your game install (typically c:/program files/palestar/gamecq/), Screenshots can be converted to internet friendly format using Photoshop, Gimp, or Irfanview 3.99. Upload your converted image to any of your favorite image hosts, I personally provide image hosting at http://img.jbud.org/ lastly provide a link to the image to the event leader (Me, JBud) via private chat..

If the server doesn't cap out, and this event lasts more than 5 minutes then by all means sounds good.

never know it could be an event that lasts a week instead of a day or just an hour... but... then there would be a heck of a lot ppl on... and he did say the meta verse... so that could mean ALL mv servers and the pirates might not just show up one ship at a time but in groups of mixed ships maybe?

Perhaps the pirate threat can actually be human players... working as a team to take credits from the others

Only problem with that is you cant have just anyone flying around as pirates. chances are it will be just staff members against players or something similer.

Well it's possible, I've gotten normal players in pirate ships from an event once (as a prize) If the event is approved then I don't see why I can't get some players in as the bounties.

There really isn't that many staffmembers, not to mention not all of them are on at once, so getting players in them is the only realistic way...

I will see what I can work out, it's up to the staff in the end..

If they are AI I will see if I can work out getting Chromix's advanced AI script controlling them....

The event also isn't set in stone, these guys could be on normal factions and not even be pirates, it's basically all based on what the staff say, this thread is to get my plans all together before I start asking for stuff, that's why the last event got delayed, and then lasted such a short amount of time.

I want my events to require the least amount of on the spot improvision possible.

The kills registration is... imperfect. I think the premise of this event does not work. If someone'd killsteal the bounty I was fighting for a while he'd gain all and I'd get nothing.

Opportunism is do not want.

Kills are logged in the server, so its possible to do a daily poll of the logs and check for any pirate kills.

That said, kill stealing would be a concern.

Bounty hunting is a vicious unfair sport, hence the "no rules" part

I lik the idea, but I don't think the staff will go for credits as a reward

Sounds good probley offer rare enhancement rather than credit would be nice P.s would be more than happy to fly a pirate ship to deny players of prizes lol

There are quite a few people who want to fly pirate ships.

For those who allready have money, i would say let them for the event. to fill in for staff being, well, unable to play.

Those who dont, shouldint be playing pirate and should be hunting pirates

(people who have 150k+ credits dont need any more and thusly should at least be considerd to buzz about in a pirate ship )
