It occurs to me that combat skills are somewhat unique right now in the sense that multiple players can 'pool' their skills together to become something stronger than the most UE invested individual character among them.
It might be interesting if non-combat skills could do this as well, something like '@assist ' where two players (or more?) could cooperate on skill checks by pooling their skills together, with some percentage of the lower skilled player's skill being added to the higher player's skill, when the check is made, while they remained together.
Things this could enable:
+ Teaching characters (and players) to drive and fly, or one character helping another drive in poor weather, with less risk of crashing for the learner.
+ Two (or more?) characters working together on a tech job (like taking down super tough cameras, or cracking advanced tech) that neither of them alone could manage.
+ Art collaboration that would be more valuable and more showy than a single artist working alone.
+ Giving high UE specialists a reason to work with lower-skilled characters on jobs to make their work even better.
Combat skills (dodge, weapons) could be omitted and the @assign could also break on combat along with various other states.
