Road flares

Question

Wayfarer

Road flares

Brief Summary:

Throwable road flares https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BrbodDsQg44&feature=youtu.be

Detailed Suggestion:

introduce Deployable road flares that can be thrown then used to illuminate an area with light. These could be used for roleplaying purposes to highlight road accidents at night, and also to signal your location at night. The flares last for 60 seconds which is 15 minutes in-game time. 15 minutes being how long real-world road flares burn for. In the demo version, I have created them in a few different colors that could be factions specific versions

The Pros:

A unique throwable item that could be used creatively in a few different ways to liven up roleplay

The Cons:

Used like smoke grenades, someone could buy a lot of them and then chuck them around to maybe slow down players FPS or troll people. However, the light shed is only visible at night and is not that high and wouldn't blind anyone at night, and the time of how long the last could be easily changed.

Does this suggestion change balance on the server ?

No, I don't see how this could affect server balance.

Any throwable object that players can throw will cause issues with this amount of players on the server.

We once had place able objects they were placed and due to the amount of traffic the server came to a halt on a number of occasions.

That is a real shame to hear, but thank you for the reply @Wilco. It is very much appreciated.

@Wayfarer Don’t like to blame BIS but I blame BIS for not creating an engine for loads of roleplayers! Hopefully the new engine they are working on will open new doors or if another one comes along!
