What’s not to like about them? They’re in virtually every sci-fi movie and TV show.
I propose that we add stealth drives to SL. I’d imagine it’d be some sort of (very expensive) multi block, possibly using chorus plants or some other type of End item as fuel, with their main purpose being to hide you from the SL Map. You could toggle them on and off, and it keeps both citizens AND pirates happy. Pirates get to sneak up on unsuspecting players, and citizens get to hide from dangerous pirates.
/getpos would still work, but that only adds to the challenge. Just imagine if someone had a stealth drive and a nav comp. They’d be pretty hard to catch, even with
/getpos, wouldn’t you agree?
Overall, I think the whole thing balances itself out. It provides both good and bad players a huge advantage, yet it also provides a disadvantage to every player using it. Unless they’re willing to turn off the drive and risk being seen, the only way they’d know where they are would be by looking at their coords.
I’d love to know what you think of this.
@Destroyer917 had an excellent suggestion: No weapons while in stealth mode. I really like this idea, and it would help balance the whole thing out more.
