    Hi

    I was thinking today about Arkadia and that its based on aliens , sci fi and the future.

    So a idea came to my mind about transport on Arkadia you know how Calypso has vtols and helicopters.

    I was thinking could Arkadia have UFO transport 1 and 2 seater versions and bigger :)

    Its a brilliant idea and it fits the story.

    The inside view of the UFO could have little gizmos that light up and show advanced gadgets when in the cockpit view of the craft

    What does the Arkadia development team think of this i think it would be perfect to have in game and only for Arkadia use.

    Are you meaning something that resembles a flying saucer? To me, that would be a bit gimmicky. I'd rather see something completely different that no one has created before. IMO that would be more creative.

    Yes a flying saucer but not realy a circle one it could be any shape and design but a alien type craft would be cool the classic ones would be gimmicky but a cool design would get some attention and avas looking up as you fly by.:)
    We have some talented people on here and the development team we could look into it or put it on a shelf for a later date

    If I'm not mistaken, Arkadia is already supposed to have Arkadian vehicles designed for the planet. One of the introduction videos hints at it at least.

    ...did you just say you want little gizmos that light up and show advanced gadgets when in the cockpit view... LoL, that is vague and almost as ugly sounding as the default original vtols.

    Screen within a sci-fi vehicle should show.
    Fuel / Energy gauges
    Structural integrity of the different parts of the vehicle
    Weight
    Warning screens when targeted / fired upon
    Speed

    Gadgets in a sci-fi vehicle should have internal drop down / display menus for
    2-D / 3-D Land Maps
    Vehicle Inventory

    I agree about a control console for a VTOL ...it should show thing like a fuel gauge, the hovercrafts,etc on Calypso don't and it bugs me. Then structural integrity, definitely, but weight? I don't think that's necessary, maybe a warning if your overloaded, and it should NOT fly overloaded, so you'll have to decide what to drop.Cargo, yes, that would help since little bits of things can weight up when you don't pay attention to them, and speed...if your even getting close to max weight, the speed would show it too...you'll slow down the more you carry...and PLEASE make your flying crafts FASTER than on Calypso....you would think some company would make a VTOL fighter with a top speed of 60??? that's insane, and not worth the price.

    The speeds of the Vehicles on Calypso were designed specificly for the size of the land areas. If they made it faster it would be in comparrison to the scaling of remote control models.. 1/19th scale car for size but it does 300 miles per hour if scaled to normal size. same principle here with VTOLS the scale speed for the craft vs land mass I am sure is comparable to a normal speed of flying vehicles.

    They arent meant to be replacements for the SST. Do you want faster regen speeds of mobs when you die? Thats all that going faster would do in game is make them adjust regen mobs more.

    Would love a vtol/space ship vehicle.;) With the advent of space travel, (or I hope there will be space travel) I think this could add a whole new dimension to the game. :cool:

    Definately Sci-Fi related. There are soo many different renditions of space ships out on the web today that the sky isn't limit!! :D I think a one seater would be nice. With good hauling capacity it would be great for mining asteroids and dead moons! :)
