Draken Stark Posted April 13, 2014 Share Posted April 13, 2014 (edited) There are many times when I frequently spend most of a game as something other than a soldier. Selecting Engineer repeatedly is taxing when it's a class that's free to switch to. I'd hope that for any class that is free, a player can automatically respawn as that class. I'm aware that servers can change the cost of the classes in the game, so it'd be important to have a check for if a class is free and that the class' requirements are met (such as a silo is under your teams control). If that check fails, then the player will respawn as the default class (if not in every case, this should be the soldier). Example: Players should have their last selected free class saved as a variable (probably on the server). Should a player select engineer, that choice will be saved as the last free class selection. If the player dies or decides to upgrade to any class that costs money like a technician, which costs money on this hypothetical server, that choice will not be saved. When the player dies as their paid class, they'll respawn as an engineer since that was their last free class selection. Notable Feedback: ... If you die and then you click to respawn, you'd respawn as you previous free class. ... However, if you press 1-5 (or 1-4 + E) you'd instantly spawn as the free class of your selected hotkey. I feel that this would be a great addition to the game! Edited April 15, 2014 by Guest Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
