Mission / Task System - Give your ideas!

Recommended Posts

Hello survivors,

 

As you may know, we are planning on implementing a mission / task system.

 

Some general ideas so far:

  • Delivering packages between safe zones
  • Escort an NPC to the safe zone / across map to other safe zone while protecting them from players & other AI
  • Finding a specific item in the world from AI or Buildings
  • Killing a number of AI
  • Repair large satellite stations around the map
  • Bring power stations back online around the map

 

After completing a mission / task you will be rewarded with various things:

  • Unique item(s)
  • Experience Points
  • New crafting blueprints (unique to the mission)

 

The plan is to have these missions rotate every day or week to keep things interesting, and possibly implement a system to randomly generate missions based off a few variables. (Which could mean everyone gets different missions every day/week)

 

Have any other ideas? Share them here :)

 

Cheers!

You could put some missions like fortnite (e.g. Open 3 air drops)! I think it would be fun. Plus if you add missions to find a certain material/item it would positive, because you could put them all around the world in order for the player to explore it :D

Maybe some stats targetted ones like Headshots, KDR, Distance Ran/Walked, Accuracy could be an interesting take if it was time limited (season/monthly etc)

To my knowledge, and I'm trying to picture out a scenario of myself in the XERA server with minimal loot whilst running around, it would be fun to:

Destroy 10 Model V Robots

Destroy 5 Model Z Robots

Destroy 3 Model V Robots

Rare Quest: Search and Destroy: " Destroy a Model X Robot " (Reward = something rare)

 Travel a total of ____ KM's on Feet

Explore 1,5,10,15, 20..... POI (Point of Interests ) 

Explore All the POI (Point of Interests) * Big Award * [ this is something a starter could do to receive something big when they are starting ] {Achievement} Explorer

Fly & Detonate 1,2,3,4,5 or more Drones and receive: ______

Achievement name: " Taste of their own Medicine " [ Destroy any Model of Robot by detonating a Drone ] 

Craft 1, 10 , 20....... etc. Items

"Secure yourself a pay-load"

Kill 5 or more Players (General number I guess depending on player-base)

Gather some healing materials & more from a crashed Ambulance vehicle

Kill a Player by getting an headshot kill with a Sniper rifle

Get 1,5,10,15....... Headshots kills on players

That's all for me for now, I've used all my knowledge I could and that what I learned from watching the past Streams that Joshua did :) Hopefully the general idea from the lines I sent above will be useful, the ones I wrote above are not that simplified, but maybe the GENERAL IDEA can pull out a cool mission! Hope I helped! Excited on that Dev Blog Josh!

Cheers, LaMelo

Add a miniature of my logo and put it at 0.0001% spawn rate and some kind of awesome reward if you find it ;)

 

Joking. But maybe a Search & Destroy mission with a special C4 to blow up one Satelite stations or Power stations with the catch that you're more visible like a dot on the map or something. (High Risk vs High Reward)

nah man forget that quest stuff and put in a big boss in the game that all the clans will fight for that only spawns in once a day

and make it so it drops pretty amazing shit and that will create pvp for content which will attract pvp even in the deadest of servers. 

 

see like make up your own shit thatll make this game unique forget copying other games that have died i legit have seen the same list of suggestions in other games that are dead now.

I like the quest idea it makes it more interesting and fun to play. Add a little for everyone, for the pvp'ers and content for the looters / survivors... There is so much to have fun with and explore. Make it interesting for everyone will keep it interesting. Events where you have to be teamed up to complete. and other quests for the solo players. Quest like spend a least 1 hour in game, or 30 min in game without dying. or play a certain mode for a certain amount of time. (Ex: Play 30 min in survival, craft 5 items or find certain items and craft certain items.) not sure exactly because i havent played the game yet to knw all the perks but something fun challenging and different. Probably would have more ideas after playing the game for a week. ill have better ideas maybe to come up with for the future. Good luck cant wait to play.

what about some explore missions? for example go to this specific campsite.  or go to this building (this might be too specific tho)

not sure if thats easy to add ofc. but it might encourage some people to go to other then their usual places

 

and for the hoarder inside of me:

collect X amount of X items (with or without a specific area to find the items)

Some kind of mission to bring pvp all over the map. A speacial item or drop that spawns random places on the map, that you need to bring back to safezone. Make the player with the item in inventory vulnerable, by being marked on the map (updated every 1/2 min maybe). This could maybe be more like a every 2 or 3 hour event?

I like the idea of adding as much randomisation to the mission system as possible, so everyone has very unique feeling quests. Travelling / carrying out quests with friends will always be beneficial since it's an extra pair of eyes while you carry out your mission! I also like the idea of adding group-only missions so you have to be in a small group to complete a specific task - something that I will exploring after the foundation of the mission system is completed.

Thanks for your feedback everyone, keep it coming! :)

Maybe a mission about those generators in the safe zone which broke and you have to get parts and tools to fix those, can be a quest with time limit and ppl have to cooperate to fix it or the safe zone goes down for some time, like 30 mins or so. Can apprear once in 5 game days or so.

Well just those repair Mission as in shattered skies where cool. Escorting npcs is frustrating.

Killing a Number of Bots is ok Finding legendary Electric Parts from shot down robot helicopter.

Yes I loved the shattered skies missions like rapairing blockades and stuff for rewards. It would fit perfectly in this game aswell.

A lot of missions should be about killing a number of A.I in different ways.

Examples:

1. Kill 5 A.I using a baseball bat

2. Kill 20 A.I using an automatic weapons

...

etc

I haven't played the game yet. But i am looking forward to buy and play it this weekend. 

So far I played a lot of OpenWorld survival games and I have seen a lot of good and also bad stuff that were implemented into thpse games.

So i made some thoughts about this "mission-system":

I guess it would be cool if you could join a "fraction" in the safezone or some point across the map (HQ of the specific fraction). You should be able to change your fraction (probably once a day) 

Each fraction should have their own missions. For example there is a fraction which gets rewards for destroying radio stations. And another fraction will get rewards when they repair the radio station. 

Maybe it could also be possible to capture an area for your fraction. In this area you could probably get XP-multiplier or something like that.

 

This are just some ideas i had while reading the posts above. Please give me some feedback what you guys think about it.

 

Hope to see you soon ingame

Interesting idea.  That could bring about a change to PVP across the map while still having the PVE element as well.

Just some ideas for the game to spice things up a bit.

Multiple tiered weapons, ie: base weapon, tier 1, tier 2, tier 3, legendary or tier 4.

Timed loot chests across the map. ie: chests that drop random loot and after they are captured, takes a said amount of time to unlock again.

Adding a feature where you can play third person, but if you click or hold right mouse, it will use first person scope.

Also add global inventory points in the middle of the map without it being surrounded by a safe zone for risk reward stashing.

just some ideas, love the game so far. keep it up!

I like the idea of having missions to complete as it adds something to do in the game. 

Having the rewards as potentially different tiered weapons, some type of currency or even faction reputation. 

I put forward the idea in a document that outlined what each faction does, if you complete a mission that is given to you by a specific faction it increases the reputation you have with that specific faction. For example, the medical faction, if you complete a mission you have then access to craft or purchase specific items that other players might not have access to due to their faction level. 

There could be 3 different factions that someone can choose from, players are not faction locked and can gain reputation with any faction. it takes a while to get the top rewards for faction rep and they can be specific things. 

Medical faction, the top tier could be something like. The ability to craft First Aid Kits or other top-tier medical items. 

Crafting Faction, They could have the ability to purchase drones/craft different type of drone

Weapons Faction, Have the ability to purchase top tier ammo or weaponry. 

 

I'm curious to know what everyone else thinks :)

what if you set up these satellites (doesn’t have to be sattilites specifically to trigger this timer) at a location and it sets a timer and once the timer ends a loot create with random good loot drops and you can see the timer on the map making this place a high pvp area with people fighting for the loot. Somthing along those lines I always liked things like this

Event with a bounty system players with allot of kills in the period of the event without dying will be marked on the map and if you kill them u get the bounty equal to their thread level.

Ofc if you have a bounty u get bonus rewards for each kill

It does not show real time but updates every 10-20 seconds

Like i posted on the map topic a Reactor would be nice or something simular like a capture area and then loot drop. Some small events and 1 big event with better loot every 2-3 hours.

Next to air drops a helicopter crash that’s more rare with much loot. Or maybe space ship to be in theme 

maybe some AI guarding it

That’s it for now

  • Delivering packages between safe zones

  • Finding a specific item in the world from AI or Buildings
  • Killing a number of AI
  • Repair large satellite stations around the map
  • Bring power stations back online around the map

I feel these ideas are perfectly fine except the escort NPC idea. That just sounds like an awful time. because we all know how NPC AI and AI pathing works in situations like that. 

I like the Repairing power stations idea and what not. Anything like that, that make the areas on the map actually worth going there is good game design. 

Bringing power back online for Redsville after an airstrike would be a neat idea. I always thought the compound events were alittle forced. I thought it would make more sense to clear out all robots in a small town or city like Riverdale and be rewarded with a supply drop. It gives incentive to be there and you're essentially "taking out the trash" when it comes to killing robots in a residential area. 

I saw that you were creating a Robot facility building too. You could have the building be very huge with many twist and turns and you have to have someone on the point and craft some kind of unique item in the robotics lab. Maybe find X items that are unique to the robotics lab and go to the center of the building and craft it at this part of the lab and someone needs to stand there for 5-6 mins or so. But you can stop crafting it in case you get attacked to return back to crafting it.

Hey guys.

Great work so far.

I think alot of the above things would be great but i think it would be a great idea to find alot of thinks to do like timed loot crates - tiered guns - saliate stations - blockade things and all that much like there was in the SHATTERED SKIES everything in that games was really good apart from server hopping for the reactor events and the instant pop-up sheilds.

I think it would be a great idea to use alot of there ideas but in ur own way as this game was a massive hit and mega fun the only downside was the creators and dev's were a money grab and get out of here team and robbed many people THIS TEAM ARE GREAT and all about making a great game.

would anyone agree alot of shattered skies stuff was top class and would be good in this game??look forward to your reply's
