Interested Mod: Drones v1.1
Would be very interested to be able to summon this drone (For the healing aspects). Especially if you where a healer and the drone can link to other players to help out the healing? Sounds good, I have used them on another server a long time ago, maybe this version is bug free. I wonder how customizable this thing is.

This looks like a wicked cool idea for engineers.

The fundamental problem is this: The first word we learn as children is NO. From that point forward society teaches women that saying no isn't polite, and society teaches men to respect those who wont take no for an answer.

But presumably for Engineers, you would not want it to heal the engineer. Just provide extra fire power, a bit like a pet.

Would you want it as a type of sentinel that the engineer summons, but one that just flies around and follows you instead of being non-moving?
Or would you want it as a skill you buy which means you automatically spawn with one, rather than something the engineer has to summon with points? In this case, if it gets destroyed, should a new one automatically repsawn?
(EDIT: I would think it should just be a normal sentinel that gets summoned)

Would you want extra abilities that improve the drone?
Allowing multiple drones per engineer may hit cpu too much?
Could have multi-level abilities to increase fire power and range and aggressiveness?
Could have multi-level ability to increase drone starting health, but perhaps instead should take it from the ConstructionHealthBonus ability which already exists?

Or perhaps even allow more specialised upgrades - like making the weapon null entropy or poison?

Could make the drone produce a sphere of invulnerability whilst the engineer is charging with the engineer link gun? Perhaps total invulnerability may be too much, and reduced damage may be better? Or make the sphere just destroy incoming projectiles, but let monsters/players/outgoing projectiles pass through? Mmmm - not convinced about this.

Drone to be destroyed when the engineer dies, and drone not to be targetted by monsters unless there is no better target. (EDIT: actually, if we make it so if the drone hasn't got a direct line of sight to the player, it doesn't fire, then we do not need the drone to take damage or be targetable at all)

What do you reckon?

Hmmmm, interesting. Much smaller than pets, which would allow for more/better visual sight.........
