The other day I decided to make a suggestion about water and modular pipes. The post was made pretty quickly and was just an idea slapped together in 15 minutes. I decided to take the time today and form a better post explaining the idea and how it could be used in Unturned II.
Everyone knows that managing water and gas in Unturned 3.0 is challenging, and is not an automated process. Sure you have your water tank and gas tank that can be placed, but this is a very basic system. Its also much easier to grow food that fills your water bar up than storing and drinking water. I believe in Unturned II it would be a nice feature to have pipes that you can connect to different storage tanks and pumps to move liquids around easier.
What kinds of pipes would you be able to craft in Unturned II?
In the image above I attached small pipes that you may find inside of a base. These pipes would be used for connecting to vehicles, small storage tanks, or even small pumps. I created 3 size variants for straight pipes, a tee pipe, 45 degree elbow, 90 degree elbow, and two valves.
These pipes may be overkill for the game, but I thought I would include the concept anyways. The photo above contains the same types of pipes as the small ones, as well as an adapter for converting from large to small.
Other Ideas and Concepts
Being able to craft pipes in different colors would allow the player to organize their plumbing better. Obviously the colors you can craft do not need to be as flamboyant as above.
The ability to pump water out of a lake or river would be a nice feature to have. Gathering water for your base could be an automated system once you have gathered the materials to create it. Moving liquids would no longer require a handheld tank.
Industrial Sized Systems
This is just a concept for using large pipes to fill up industrial sized tanks.
For the last concept I included a fire hydrant and hose. A hose would allow the player to connect two pieces together without having to be the perfect distance apart in order for the pipes to snap into place. It may also be an interesting feature to be able to tap into fire hydrants and fill up fire trucks or even use for a base.
Some other ideas to consider
-Water Filtration Systems or just filters.
-Pressure Gauges and valves
-Gravity fed water
