there should be a procented chance to a xeno egg spawning in research or CLs contaiment cell, I propose that there is a 10% chance of an xeno egg spawning but wen the egg will spawn it can be a diffrend verinent and they also have they procented chance to spawn heres the exlapes
feral egg will spawn at 30%
forsaken egg will spawn at 25%
normal egg will spawn at 15%
alpha and other verients like that will spawn at 10%
mutant egg will spawn a 5%
tamed egg will spawn at 3%
corrupted egg cant spawn cuz it is biologicaly imposible
I can be corrected but this makes no sense because the USS Almayer leaves Chinook to investigate the distress beacon from whatever colony sent it, which means a couple months spent in cryosleep. Since the science team is working for the UA/USCM there’d be too many issues and with the Liaison, they’re just a business person acting as a middle man between the USCM and W-Y, how would some lowly person like them sneak an egg through customs?
I just don’t understand from a lore perspective of “how is this achieved?”
so if they are pirates that means the priates stole the egg from research base to sell it for loot of money but the uscm got on their base ship when the operation was over they took the egg as a war trophy
the percented chance ISN’T a good thing, that just means that one in every however many rounds will be unbalanced, given that this is inherently unbalanced. I don’t see the relevance of alpha bravo hives either.
welll yea but its basicaly 50 50 chace of whos gona win but it isnt to basicaly 50 50 chance of getting xeno egg and alos i dont know why i add corupted eggs cuz greenos are basicly like biologicly borned they are borned do to science
I think there is a salvageable element from this. I always wondered about why we arrive to this planet and there’s just a HIVE. There’s always a weird lack of a story building up to the outburst of the infestation, rather than what the effects of the infestation are. With this being said. I think it would be cool to see nightmare inserts that go into explaining this.
A Wey-Yu storage crate at cargo that can only be opened with a wey-yu key that can be secured from elsewhere in the colony, containing a xenomorph egg.
A testing site that has planted eggs in containment cells, and chestbursted test subjects.
A cryo’d monkey that has been impregnated with the embryo.
These are all little things that give research more of a shot at getting eggs than wiping out a xeno hive or some misplaced carrier, yet each comes with a unique challenge that prevents an early game greenos. Intel has to get the card for the container, the planted eggs can’t be uprooted or really tested on, so research has to find another way to get their results from it. The cryo’d monkey is cool, but make it late stage and it has a chance of popping before you can get any real results.
Best of all, this gives interesting scenarios for researchers to play out. What happens if the monkey bursts? What if the test with the planted egg goes bad some how? It allows for an element of field research, which I think is a cool premise.
