I wasn’t sure where to post this, but the idea came to mind earlier. I’ve been banging my head trying to come up with ways that would allow transport pilots to contribute a little more during low times. How about special things that get unlocked by transporting material to a drop off point?
For example, there could be a mission that requires you pick up and transport so many crates and bring them back to base. Upon doing so, a reward will spawn.
Another example could be base enhancements. For instance, a base defense system that can only be triggered after enough ammo has been brought from a supply depot to a drop point.
