just an idea not really a suggestion because the devs would die of old age before finishing creating such a massive thing
There are 2 islands to the right of the map that are inaccessible and have nothing on them, an interesting idea would be if one was a city island, not like the cities in the game now, like a city with skyscrapers and massive buildings and stuff, the whole island. There would also be a new class of FNIX machines.
This is made to be difficult, and made for stealth. Being afraid of the machines is one of the best parts of the game but it goes away. You are not supposed to fight and kill these, you are supposed to hide.
With the entire map being a city it seems like it would be difficult for tanks and harvesters to move around, so the roads would have to be very wide.
The new class of machines would be very different. They would be colored all black and have 0 exposed components. Everything has armor, also, the components are in different places, so you don’t really know where to shoot. They would also have vents coming out of them with the purple poison gas coming out. All of their bullets would give this purple gas damage for a short time.
With the cities tall buildings it would block the sun a little more making it darker around the city. All the streetlights would be broken.
With the very tall buildings you would think it would be easy to just escape FNIX by going up, but the Seeker has changed. It would be able to fly up vertically and follow you, it also has two weapons. One is a gas grenade launcher, this gas has a much much higher area than hunter gas, it’s meant to bring you out. They also have a shotgun, it will shoot windows with it to be able to gas you. Also all its components are armored so it’s harder to kill. The gas also kills you faster than hunter gas
Ticks would also be very different. The apocalypse tick has a scorpion tail that poisons you, this has a tail that spits blinding acid at you. It has a 3 meter range, when it hits you you get blinded for 15 seconds, giving the tick time to jump on you and poison you.
Runners would no longer have a gas can on top. It would be in their chest, so you would need a shot to the chest from the exp pvg to one shot kill them. THe whole body of the runner is armored though, no gaps to see the tank. Runners also have an extra gas grenade launcher on them where the gas can was.
The tank would have all its components moved around so you don’t know where to shoot. It’s also 100% covered with armor. It has 4 new guns, 2 small turrets and 2 gas grenade launchers. All guns are on their own reload and fire timer, instead of one going and then stopping for a long time until the other one goes. The gas would be the same gas the seeker has, a large radius. The little turrets are like runner turrets.
Harvester isn’t really changed that much, missiles do purple poison, calls down hunters.
Hunter would have 2 variants, flamethrower or poison bullets. They both have a gas grenade on one shoulder and a 50 cal on the other, both can fire whenever they reload instead of waiting for the other. Gas tank on the back is moved and fully armored. Tick pods are less sticking out and are more inside the machine, and do fall off as easily.
maybe you would need to start a new character that starts on this island? so you start with nothing, making it more difficult?
