  1. I'm of the opinion that we should make generic visibility housing units and then farm out the visibility modules to outside companies.
    I want the best vehicle with the best visibility. I shouldn't have to choose a great vehicle with poor visibility or a garbage vehicle with great visibility.
    Make them swappable. Make it a standard that can be replaced or upgraded.
