    Post an idea!

    guys i have an idea that i wish to share it with you and it's : in the survival mode when u die u can't respawn until the next checkpoint or the level change . and in the spectating options there are only 3 option : locked chase camera . free chase camera and observer mode
    what i want to say is that why don't we add a fourth option we call it ghost mode ( where u can go around the map as a player but u are a ghost so u can't do anything . u can't press button and u can't kill enemies or enteract with any other thing because we are ghosts . because it's really boring to stay just like a homing thing
    hope you guys have read my thread and will get into ur considoration

    yours : hold my beer

    Isn't that exactly what the free camera mode is?

    Oh that... Not sure how you'd intend on going through a close door without having to use it.

    well, you'd have to have the other players do it all.. you can just walk around and watch it happen. It's not a bad idea, but I'm unsure how annoying it would be for other players to have ghosts running around, jumping in front of you, blocking your view, etc. Maybe if the dead players were completely invisible it might be cool.

    Heh definitely, I didn't think that the ghost players being visible would have been on the table. That'd be super annoying.

    I actually proposed this idea in 2013 when we were first implementing observer mode.

    Ghost players would be able to see each other, but living players would not be able to see ghosts. I still think it's a pretty good idea. Maybe some day we'll implement it.
