i think it would be a great idea to be able to find and fix up an old ferry boat... since the map of islands we there could only be a certain number that function people will have to work together. also there could be maybe one bridge that is still standing.

just a thought,

Thx,

Depends on the gap between islands. Ferries are usually only for massive rivers, and even then, they're designed to hold quite a lot of cars. Getting something so massive like this working would take so much effort it might not be worth it.

it could defiantly be useful from a survival stand point. you could a ferry as a mobile shelter or base, also if they implement weather conditions such as flooding it would be a good thing to have.

I would like to see ferry's and especially bridges, I have taken a ferry to a island before so I think it's viable to find one. There should be a very limited amount like maybe one or two depending on the amount of island's/players(player limit) they add to the game. It seem's like a perfect clan vehicle, you can transport vehicles and a lot of players when attempting to defend or attack a location. On liveability it wouldn't be very compfortable so it would take a lot of work to make it compfortable.

I would really like to see bridges connecting some islands as well, I have found they are always pretty interesting and dangerious landmarks. Depending on the length going on foot can be a death trap and it's also really easy to spot vehicles moving on them. They are really fun conttenion points as well, it's always fun trying to get past a blockade on one end of the bridge. Similar to Unturned it would also be cool to have a broken bridge or one that is under construction leading to a Island, it would be interesting to see if some people might turn it into a shanty town like in fallout 3. It would also be really interesting to see dynamic bridges like Bascule bridges, verticle lift bridges, retractable, table and swing bridges. They would be a interesting non violent deterant to keeping people away from your base, it would also give tasks for people when they have to power/repair the mechinisms. They would have to get to the island and safely activate the bridge, they would probably make a lot of noise so once you managed to get one running it would attract attenion.

Bridges defintley need to happen so this can happen lol
