Civilian Packs/Shelter/Flashlight/Etc. Suggestion

Recommended Posts

A few suggestions to give civilians some additional utility gear options that are currently only found on military style gear:

Items:

  • LED lantern/square light that runs on batteries (more for RP and other uses below). The square light (Google PRINCETON TEC MERIDIAN for reference) that can be attached to glow stick slot on backpacks. (the square light should not be as bright as the flashlight but brighter than the glow stick)
  • Civilian water bottle with pouch (Nalgene bottles as an example). Could even just add a water bottle pouch to be able to carry on belts (or backpacks... see below).
  • Combine rope with dry sack for improvised backpack. Would appear diagonal across the back and take up the backpack slot. 
  • Combine lantern (gas or electric) with camping stove poles to make a place-able light post. 
  • Ponchos! So many people, including myself want these!
  • Leaf hut/lean to shelter. This shelter would offer a survivalist shelter option that allows for some storage (storage should be similar to crate and cannot store weapons). Because of the storage capabilities I would make it as hard or slightly harder to build than crates, as far as effort to make is concerned. It would use materials found on small and big trees as well as some rope. For example: 10 fire logs, 1-2 large logs, and 2-3 large sticks. The finished shelter would have a triangular prism shape. Something like this <https://i1.wp.com/www.adventuresportsnetwork.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/leanto.BC101.jpg?w=1000&#038;ssl=1>

Backpacks:

  • Combine rope with certain backpacks to add an additional slot(s) on the shoulder, back, bottom, top, and/or sides.  The shoulder, bottom, and back portions of a backpack seem reasonable and only certain items would be allowed to be attached to these areas.The side and top slots, I'm meh about. Some ideas on what items and where they can be attached:
    • Dry sacks and cooking pot (maybe even those protective cases? meehhhhh...) attached to the bottom of packs. 
    • Flashlight can be attached to top of shoulder of backpacks/vest, I have seen this on other servers and it is looks pretty cool and would be pretty handy for players who do not wish to use NVGs, helmet with light, and/or headlamp. Would also be nice to have a red light variant of the flashlight in this case. Would be nice to have a light that allows for characters to still wear hats/beanies/etc.
    • LED lantern/square light, binoculars, cooking, pouches (the ones that can be put on belts), civilian water bottle/pouch, etc. attached to the back of backpacks.
  • Slots should be on the sides of select backpacks for water bottles and/or small pouches (the ones that go on belts).

Honestly, the necessity of these items can be questioned, I understand that. However, I believe the benefit to these additions is giving players options that help distinguish civilian characters from military/more hostile characters. Anyway, these are just some suggestions I thought of.

I really like that shelter idea. Also neat now that it's becoming winter soon.

I can def get behind the makeshift shelter, all too often I get caught out in the woods while it's raining and theres no shelter nearby. Damn near freeze to death every time, plus it's perfect for the people that want to be actual survivalists in the server.

I'd love to have more of this. More civilian and survival gear is always better.

I feel like civilian gear should at least be more prevalent than military stuff. Been saying it for a minute now.

+1 These all would be nice to see! 🙂 

Also would like to see more "nomad" / "makeshift" base-objects in general. Such as a sleeping bag, a fur tent, wooden table/chairs, etc.
