The purpose of this thread is to come up with ideas for new company specials. Feel free to post as many as you want It is recommended that you post multiple ideas instead of just individual ones if possible. If you want to see 10 star companies, we need to get a lot of new specials! (And yes, I am serious)

Everything that is here is currently being discussed with the committee, this thread is a chance to get more ideas from a wider group of people and to show what the committee is currently working on (The thread was approved by Ched in case anyone is wondering).

This is not a conventional suggestions thread, it is for reference to get more ideas for the developers and the committee, detailed ideas that are posted below will be added to this thread and the similar one in the committee forums.
Please read it through carefully.


A while ago, Ched mentioned the idea of increasing the ranks of companies, a main draw-back to this being thinking up over 70 new company specials that people would be interested in.
This question has already been proposed to the committee and many ideas have already been put forward, but a few more are needed.

Your suggestions will all be read and considered and put towards the player committee for further discussion. Ched will then decide upon the ones he likes and select two new specials.

We ideally need about 4 new specials for each company, we will be selecting two for final use, the 4 will give us a good choice
Each special must be realistic and relevant to the company it is for, must not be TOO unique as writing a new system for each special is not ideal, and must not be too overpowered, there has to be balance.

Your special(s) must also be DETAILED and sensible, suggest how big the bonus will be, how many points it requires, if it's passive, how long a 'buff' will last, the name of the special, what company it is relevant to, etc etc.
Nothing like this: " Chedburn I FINK U SHUD b ABLE2 HIRE PROZZIES FOR HAPPINES IN STRIP CLUb"


Some of our suggestions here have no name, so feel free to add these if you can think of one - Feel free to help each other out too, if someone comes up with a special that has no name, yet you can think of one, quote their post to add that
If you want to give feedback (positive or negative) or any current ideas here please do that too. However this will also be done primarily by the committee

You can view all the current specials (1, 3 and 5 star) here:
http://www.torn.com/wiki/Companies

I will be keeping this thread and the committee thread updated with everything (mostly) suggested so far, impractical and un-detailed suggestions would just be scrapped.

Here is a preliminary list of what we have so far: (Considerably simplified from what we have in the committee forum, this is just to prevent duplicated ideas, saving everyone's time - This list will consist of ideas that have received the most positive feedback, or least negative feedback)

All of these ideas are still being discussed, nothing here is final, it is just to prevent duplicated suggestions.
The special lists below are a simplified form of current suggested ideas for reference. It is not guaranteed that what is here will be introduced into the game. We still need more ideas before anything can be developed upon, the committee will be discussing each point that is raised with Ched.

Your special(s) must also be DETAILED and sensible, suggest how big the bonus will be, how many points it requires, if it's passive, how long a 'buff' will last, the name of the special, what company it is relevant to, etc etc.

[...]

If you want to give feedback (positive or negative) or any current ideas here please do that too. However this will also be done primarily by the committee


In few words: make your half-baked idea perfect detailed? So here you go, few details more:

- +20% profits from hunting (Needs a name) "Scalping" - I guess this special won't be very desired

Television network:
- Late night viewing (passive special) 100% bonus to erotic DVDs "Indie Movies"?

Thanks for the feedback, I'll be going through this all tonight and updating both threads. I'll address a couple points now though.

"Theatre:
- Be or not to be? - Your name don't appear on "People" list abroad"

We had the exact same suggestion in committee actually, I'm astonished that it was mentioned here at all, let alone so quickly It was deemed overpowered, I didn't include it here I suppose it could be brought back got a bit more discussion though.

- Raid Steal 1-3% of a target factions bank for 300 job points "Make it 0-3%, like Int. Hack special. "

The hack special is 1-3% too, the reason sites like tcbasic say 0-3% is because of the SYS stock, they're counting hacking a company with that as the 0%

- Raid Steal 1-3% of a target factions bank for 300 job points "Make it 0-3%, like Int. Hack special. "

The hack special is 1-3% too, the reason sites like tcbasic say 0-3% is because of the SYS stock, they're counting hacking a company with that as the 0%


The faction idea is great, would that mean you would bring a stock out to prevent getting your faction hacked like the stock for the company ?

Thanks for the feedback, I'll be going through this all tonight and updating both threads. I'll address a couple points now though.

"Theatre:
- Be or not to be? - Your name don't appear on "People" list abroad"

We had the exact same suggestion in committee actually, I'm astonished that it was mentioned here at all, let alone so quickly It was deemed overpowered, I didn't include it here I suppose it could be brought back got a bit more discussion though.

As I've said, that's being discussed elsewhere, so it's not relevant to this thread If something like that is ever introduced you would find out then.

Cruise line agency:
Trader's Monopoly - For 100 job point you can use your cruizer to travel (twice slower than regular plane) but lets you buy 3 time more items.

Or maybe a defined amount like 50 or so.

Slightly confused there, do you mean to just view the newsfeeds? Instead of having access for 30 minutes, just show the 4 news feeds? (Or 1 of 4 perhaps...? Those being main news/attacking/donations/armoury)

fantastic idea, especially as some of the specials are out of sync (i.e. sports team has the best specials... the best specials should be reserved for the more expensive (tv stations & oil rig) companies!)

Rated +
