Medical officer as 6th player

Post by Khobai » Mon Apr 18, 2016 1:59 pm

Are there any plans to add a 6th player to the game? I think it would be cool to have a medical officer role

Their job would be to maintain life support/environmental systems/atrium healing, heal/revive the crew when they get injured or die, cure any diseases/poisons/radiation the crew might get, and perform autopsies on aliens for science. Also the exosuits would have limited air and the medical officers job would be to refill the exosuits with air.

Respawning could also be changed. Rather than automatically respawning at the atrium after dying the medical officer would have to teleport dead/incapacitated crew members to the medbay and heal them using medical supplies.

It kind of sounds like a tie for the least interesting role and MVP of team trolling people on planets.

"What's that? I couldn't hear you since you're out of air, sir!"

*sound of disconnecting 'Medical Officer'*

The science officer's summary says that he also acts as the ship's doctor.

yeah but when is that ever the case in any tv show or movie? the roles of science officer and doctor are pretty much always seperate people.

certainly you could split science officer into two roles and both roles would still do more than the pilot does... pilot is the absolute most boring role, followed by engineer.
