Pokémon GO has this.
HPWU has recently had this feature.
Any chance of Ingress getting it too? Not sure how you could make it fit the lore, but I would like to see it.
We have scoreboards, log of activities, direct messages, public profiles and more...
Do every game needs to be a copy and paste of each other? I really don't see the need of friend list if the purpose is just to sent items...
Let's suggest we already have this feature.
You have a friend list with RES and ENL agents.
And ingress is attractive largely based on battles and cooperations over the world.
Although I do not consider it is a win-lose game, I do not consider this game is all about love and peace.
It is not PGo or HPWU, you can play them all by your own without communicating.
Ingress is not. Everything you do can affect the world much.
Go around and meet them face to face, get the items by playing hard. That makes ingress fascinating.
I think this would kind of undermine our uniqueness.
Also it would kind of undermine our reasons to communicate with other players, meet in person, and exchange capsules.
You want to give agents stuff you drop it they pick it up...
Get out there and MOVE agents
I do like the idea of being able to transport items via link paths however
I can't imagine how that would fit in Ingress logic at all.
By the way,vMods is enough. You just need HeatSync, MultiHack and capsule to do something like that.
It would also allow opposing factions to see your movements.
