Personal Bubble Suit Pack

Recommended Posts

The bubble suit pack would basically be a personal bubble shield generator that can encase someone for a variety of things, running off of the hardsuit code. This would be either an antag item, or an RnD object.


A rigsuit backpack worn on the back, that when deployed doesn't take up any clothing slots, but instead encases the user in an almost skintight shield that (with the correct modules) can serve a variety of functions, including...

  • Projectile protection
  • Melee protection
  • Vacuum seal (space suit)
  • Medical cryofield (adjustable length of KO for cryo healing)
  • Radiation protection

 

The suit, as a rigsuit, wouldn't be able to accept conventional rigsuit additions, since it's actually a backpack that generates a bubble around the user. The stipulation, of course, is that the bubble shield uses energy for all of the time it's turned on. And, if it has the relevant protections, it has an integrity field for attacks, which will fail after some hits.


I made this suggestion because I like seeing technology expanded on in ss13, to give it the further scifi feel, while also creating a new utility in the game that can be rather versatile in use.

Would be neato, and actually be great for Engineers working in the engine, maybe make one that is immune to Tesla blasts

 

No.


If the tesla gets out, it can't be recovered. There is no benefit to letting engineers be shielded from it other than allowing them to cackle manically while everyone else dies.


They can suffer with everyone else.

I just pictured in my head just engineers laughing in OOC while the rest panic and die.....

Yes, 100% agree.


Also I hope such a rigsuit would somehow also make you unable to attack? It feels like it should be personal protection at the cost of all else basically?

An engineer re-caught the tesla just the other day. So.

Could be another module you can add to it - it becomes one-sided protection, at the cost of energy every time you attack
