We got 4 ship slots. We can select only 4 ships, but not more.
My suggestion would expand each standard ship slot, making an additional sub-slot for each standard slot. We could have 1, 2, 3, or even 4 sub-slots, etc.
Due to dilemma with implants, I would add one restriction. You can only put a secondary ships of the same class and role in the same sub-slot.
Ship class or role should stack with your regular ship class or role.
Interface would be easy to expand. it would only open, if the player choose to do so.
This feature, if it would be implemented, would be only optional.
Example: (current system)
Ship slot 1: Saw One
Ship slot 2: Jaguar
Ship slot 3: Mjolnir
Ship slot 4: Octopus
New suggested system: (this example is made for only 1 sub-slot, which means a total of 2 ships for each standard ship slot)
Ship slot 1: Saw One, Aura
Ship slot 2: Jaguar, Lion Mark II
Ship slot 3: Mjolnir, Spark
Ship slot 4: Octopus, Naga
This suggestion carries a lot of potential. Not every ship class or role is the same.
Maybe your second ship has a different weapon, which also changes your tactics or approach towards the enemy team, etc.
There would be no changes to any game modes at all. You can still use just one ship or disregard this feature.
If you lose your ship in Capture the Beacons mode, you would automatically disable the whole sub-category for your secondary ships as well.
