Re: Zipline Podcast, Episode 23 Q&A Thread - Chris Oje and David Johnson

Queston 1:

 

As far as Clan Officers go, could the leader have an additional option to assign to them please? An ability to kick people from the clan is not necessarily a power all officers should have, and not all leaders want to bestow upon even those that they would like to empower with the ability to recruit. Could we have "Deputies" or some lesser title with only the power to recruit please?

 

Question 2:

 

 With the ability to give Incentive to the different game modes, Directives initial purpose has changed while it's function has not. Encouraging game modes is now done with Game Mode specific bonus percentages (how on the fly those are able to be altered without game server resets has never been discussed) I would think that they could easily be tied to the factions contract progression (which was always implied to be the directives purpose).

Let's go all in. Directives being for joining games already in progress. Directives being for solo soldiers and not available to groups. Let's not give Directives a bonus but have whatever percentage bonus already applied to a particular game mode still apply for the solo soldier joining the battle late.

In MAG would it be possible network and software engine wise to be able to control air vehicles? I was thinking more of like flying helicopters or controlling bombers, flying uavs etc..

1_ Can we get some unconventional weapons? like unmanned sentry guns (with limits of course, like weak bullet damage, limits of how many per square hundred meters), and maybe flame throwers (shotgun range less damage but damage continues even after being hit)

 

2_ Why can't we have some more unconventional weapons?

Is there a way Zipper can give us back happy hour time spent and lost in a game that ended due to disconnections or freezes? For example, if i spent 15 minutes in a game of Domination during Happy Hour and got disconnected, would there be a way to get those 15 minutes i lost added back to my Happy Hour clock?

Question for David - Do you know any programming languages to be able to do your current job and which ones do you know and how did you learn them?

Since there are so many mixed opinions about both the shotguns, the new knife, and the supply depot CP requirements  will we see any changes for them in the near future? possibly in the next patch?

With the new 2.0 update what has been causing the freezing and disconnection errors?  Does it have to do with memory issues?
