Step 1: Remove Vampirism and move Focus from the Shade hive to the Crag hive.
Step 2: Introduce Ghost as a new Shade hive upgrade.

The ghost upgrade would allow the alien to pass through the players and structures of both teams. Ghost would make it easier to break into marine forts.

Ghost 1 - 50% slow down when passing through something
Ghost 2 - 25% slow down when passing through something
Ghost 3 - 0% slow down when passing through something

    You could make sure aliens can't attack while passing through a player or a structure.

    What he's saying is that there's an empty space inside the command station that the gorge could re-materialize in which would force the marine commander to jump out, since there's no other way for marines to damage something stuck inside the chair.

    Surely having the game check for that is completely out of the question :trollface:

    Well if you can't ghostwalk through armories or command centres, you're suddenly out of uses for the ability...

    This would actually make for a great Fade ability and would make sense with Blink being what it is or used to be.

    That's sort of what I did with my Wraith Fade mod. You can pass through friendly structures and players when teleporting: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=811064493

    What if you did a very small damage over time if within another player? Might be creepy
    From my perspective UWE has been trying to both with what little resources they have given to the game. They don't have an AAA budget, let alone an indie game budget. They have the budget of a game that has been out 6 years. I want to say, don't half ass two things, whole ass one thing. I just don't think they have the resources to do it. Unlike many of the people on the forums, I guess I am just happy they are at least trying even though I may not like what they end up doing.
