Random unique AI crewmember
« on: November 08, 2014, 02:07:18 am »
I think it would be fun in pubmatches if there was one randomly appearing special unique AI crewmember. It should be rare to see or get on the ship but would make the game more interesting.

Some ideas:
- Steampunk robot engineer. Very good at repairing. Never shoots because joints can't take recoil. Rebuilds and repairs with precision. Moves faster than normal AI or players. Machinesound and buzzes.
- Crazy gunner AI. Very slow at repairs or mostly ignores them but jumps instantly on gun and has awesome aim. Steampunk eye replacements for scope and aim. Ammobelts and gunnerlook.
- Useless AI. Falls of ship, fails to repair, shoots at ally and jumps on wrong gun and hits stuff on fire wih mallet. Walks behind player and honks horn. Clownlike or conehat on head with text.

Only spawns twice per day on random ship and takes spot for one match.

Before breaking AI worse can we eliminate AI gunners?

Once again. Agree with spark. Would be nice if AI would be engineers. The gunner AI would be unique. But if ppl think it's a bad idea then that's ok.

So far matchmaker gives me "random unique crewmembers" below lvl10. Many of them are combinations of those 3 features you mentioned, especially the Useless Crewmember one....

What about re-skinning the Jesus A.I.?  White robes, long hair, the works?
