NUMBERZero`s Ideas for Descent 4 Space Missions!

Start in asteroid belt, follow the (hopefully enhanced) Decoy, I mean Guidebot to keys found deep within asteroid bases. Fight ace pilot on the way to main battle station. Fly into station, fight through it, destroy sub-systems to unlock reactor door, blo
Battle enemy fleet, destroying frigates, cruisers, etc. And destroying the flag ship from the inside. (comment on wether or not you want help or to go alone)
Going around to find and collect some special object left over in an asteroid field or a debris field.
All of the above
I`ll just leave a comment on which ones that I would like.
NO! Go away! I have no hope of a Descent 4 eventhough Zero is saying that Interplay has started a project! ;)
There should be no space missions.
Make the whole darn thing into Freespace! :P

NUMBERZero`s Ideas for Descent 4 Space Missions!


There wasn't room for the full text of the first option, so here it is:

1. Start in asteroid belt, follow the (hopefully enhanced) Decoy, I mean Guidebot to keys found deep within asteroid bases. Fight ace pilot on the way to main battle station. Fly ito station, fight through it, destroy sub-systems to unlock reactor door, blow reactor, fly through exit, dodge asteroids and a few fighters to escape battle station`s blast zone.

I voted 'All of the above', they sound like great missions!

+1 for a new poll, the old one was getting pretty stale!

I concur with WillyP. Variety is the spice of life; why make a D4 that's a uninspired retread of D1, D2, or D3? Go all out!  ;)

Though I do agree a third Freespace should totally happen. Still haven't beaten the second though... I guess I need to do that.  ::)
I, for one, hope this is much, much more than a reconnaissance mission.

I like all of these ideas, but I would hope that D4 doesn't stick to just space adventures. Descent is really a space sim, so making it entirely space-related would seem out of place.

I'd like to see just some classic style Descent missions where you go into the mine, blow stuff up, then hightail it out of there. 8)

Technically, the first one is a Mix between D2's keys and reactor and D3's objective by destroying things inside the station. Classic Descent, but in a different environment. ;)

I enjoy key finding, but i do also enjoy the objective based missions. Hopefully, a Descent 4 will include both of those.

Personnally, I like all those ideas.  Each have their merit and I would love a 6DOF game that can make use of those elements.
