Train Monument#466

A working train that goes around the map on a track like cargo ship that has lots of loot and scientists it changes train yard into a station where the train then begins are journey around the entire island there is then locked crates military crafts crates and tool boxes on all scattered around

After one loop it stops and waits untill the next loop.
When stationary the train has no loot on and emits radiation

It would be awesome if the map system include a network of rails, kinda like the roads and bus stop that connect everything. (sadly they often not connect all together)
I think it should be an event, like the cargo ship but maybe not all around the map, could be a one way convoy garded by heavy scientist.

As all areas of the map will potentially have a monument connected by a road/rail. The convoy could spawn somewhere and reach one or a few monuments.

maybe you have to catch up to it by riding a horse next to it and then jumping on, kind of similar to how you need a boat to get onto cargo.

The train could have a scientist with a turret on the top.

would be cool if you needed to race along side it in a car to jump on to it, like a fast version of jumping onto cargo from a boat

i think a subway system would be more plausable. as train tracks would require the land to be effected to greatly to make it work. but if its a subway system you have all that unused realestate and it would greatly preserve the way the map generating system already works. you could have serveral subway stations and make an underground rail system or abouve ground rail ways elevated off the land with platforms near select monuments. you would still be able to build above a subway system but if you had elevated rails with platform stops you would have to keep people from building near them and exploiting such areas.

Trains should have mounted T-42 cannons on a couple of armoured carriages which have the best loot.

Honestly amazing idea. DEVs. Take a look at what call of duty did with “Transit” it was amazing fun while the game was a big hit. Think black ops 1 or 2.

I made a similar post a few days ago before I saw this.

Similar to cargo with a bit of a twist. The train would be a fairly common event with different variations. The railroad would hit several key locations such as trainyard, harbor, military tunnels, etc. The train would be going fast enough for horses and cars to catch it but would slow down when passing near monuments enough for people on foot to get on.

1st variation- most common
Remember that naked barge that was fairly close to making it in the game. This variation could severe a similar purpose. This train would be controlled by the NPC bandit group and would be guarded by them. The train would act as a mobile safe zone with limited time items for sale.

2nd variation- uncommon
The cargo train would be similar to a high tier monument. Guarded by hostile scientists and juggernauts. The train would be stocked with higher tier loot and even a chinook crate.

3rd variation- rare
The armored train, similar to taking a boss vehicle like Bradley or helicopter. The train could be defended by a multitude of defenses but always has some form if auto cannon defending it. It may also have SAM turrets or gunslits for scientists inside the train to shoot out. To get the loot of the armored train vital modules of the train must be destroyed for the train to stop and drop loot. These modules may include the auto cannon cart, the engine cart, or even the conductors cart. After these vital modules are destroyed then flaming loot boxes will drop like helicopter and Bradley.

Modules
Each train variation should have chances for different modules to spawn, for example the bandit train might spawn with a small helipad one time and without one a different time. Same could go for the other two variations. This would change each train event and the tactics needed to use them.

Also if you’re adding trains you kinda have to add a craftable handcrank cart.

They should have the rail system be an underground metro. Would be a lot easier and wouldn’t interfere with the surface. Would also give the underground dwellers more purpose.

Underground would be really cool, houwever I cannot see it working above ground as it creates too many restrictions.
