Nero Darkard Posted September 28, 2017 Share Posted September 28, 2017 Before this game, I never even heard of naphtha before, so I was confused when my plastic factory started producing this stuff in tiny amounts. But after doing a bit of research, I learned that it is often used to power jet engines. This brought a pretty exciting idea to my head that I think would be pretty fun and useful. How about exosuit crafting stations get an alternate recipe for making jetpacks? The idea is that you either put a jetpack instead of an exosuit in an exosuit station or maybe upgrade exosuits with said jetpacks. By fueling jetpacks with naphtha, duplicants would be able to rocket-propel themselves up and down without the need for ladders. An amazing advantage that could save a lot of dupe traveling time, building time and resources you would otherwise spend on ladders. Furthermore, should fall damage be added later on in the game, jetpacks would allow falling duplicants to rescue themselves from a fatal crash to the ground. Of course, something this useful needs something to balance it out. As with real jet engines, jetpacks should emit CO2 and heat, maybe even in a trail to where the dupe was traveling. I think this would add a ton of fun and usefulness to the game. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
