Airships

Who else would like to see airships or air balloons introduced into Achaea?

    Uh yeah this is never going to happen, didn't Tecton/Cardan/Sarapis say so already?

    Did they say why? Link me.

    If deathsights from a while back (during the Bal'met event, iirc) are to be believed, the atavians already have airships. Can't find anything official from the admin on the idea, but my google-fu is not strong.

    This would pretty obviously be the best thing ever. Airships. Sky pirates. Mooring masts for zeppelins. Archipelagos of floating islands. Cloud oceans. Ugh I'm salivating on my keyboard.

    I doubt it will happen unless Tecton pulls a Tila Tequila and decides that Achaea actually will go steampunk after all. But it is nice to imagine.

    Navigation and air ships could work similarly to the way ships do at present too(but not quite) around those floating islands, would be awesome and appeal more to equality in the Vastar versus Neraeos mythology if Achaea had more sky islands(and more bashing grounds).

    Might generate a lot of income for IRE too since owning an airship would be the "in" thing on launch. Steampunk isn't that foreign to Achaea either, ie. Clockwork Island.

    Only if I can ignite arrows and snipe said airship.

    Doing so causes everyone in the local area to yell "Oh, the humanity!"

    I think if you made it like the wilderness map's ocean but with a z-axis too, it would just be 20 times as big and 20 times as empty. Sailing already has some serious flaws in terms of its size/scale, and the difficulty of encountering other ships, making it feel empty. I can only see aeronautics multiplying those problems. I can't think of a better way to do it though.

    Just no.  Ships are bad enough.  YOU CAN"T FLY THROUGH THE CLOUDS BECAUSE THEY WILL DISRUPT YOUR FLYINGNESS.

    Oh no, air chops! Better find a convoluted and awkward way around because we couldn't think of a better mechanic to make ships anything more than "valve time" speed wilderness dashing on water!

    Nah, ships are okay.

    You were my best idea, Cooper. It has, indeed, been steadily downhill since your conception.

    Actually the last I heard of this idea, Tecton was musing with it.
    But it's more of a "if they figure out how" feature, if anything. Don't think any amount of idea'ing will help as no player should be able to determine how it'd be implemented, as in wilderness movement and so on.
    It most likely graduates into steampunk and stuff too. Not quite period-appropriate.

    I'm in favour of the idea regardless because it'd allow for air raids and stuff. (It was brought up at a NoT session after discussing naval bombardment and sea invasions again, and how landlocked cities would be excluded from it all)
    And Tears of Polaris was halted due to something with flight mechanics if I remember?

    There are lots of things I adore to bits. Steampunk is probably near the top. Post-apocalyptic and dying earth stories are two more. None of these things mesh perfectly with Achaea, at least not without fundamentally changing the setting.

    And really, why make ships even more irrelevant?

    Yes to airships in a dragon only area so they can fly around and nuke them from the sky in pretty breathstream attacks.

    I'd like to see airships brought in as ferries to far off destinations. We already have ships for player transport.

    Yes, one to Meropis would be nice. More expensive, but faster. Or to undiscovered continents.
