I had mentioned earlier in this thread that all facilities would be instanced and independent of one another. Basically, when you sign up, you can simply chat on the forums or do whatever it is you do when you're not playing, and then you could join a partially empty facility as one of three players who will participate in it (starting from Level 1 and working your way up to 5). I decided to do this over one massive facility, because it ensures that everyone has something to do, and it is still fairly controllable.
I'll include global and inter-facility chat rooms as well, so everyone's not totally isolated.
Also, I'm thinking that a very basic top-down approach might be interesting to try once this is more fully fleshed out (running from escaped Class Ds or SCPs would make it a bit more interesting, as well as a few other gameplay elements, such as NPC and player interaction)... as well as about 15 or so NPC's with their own unique AI's and personalities. This all would be much later on in development though if implemented.
