I am very happy to announce the release of flight inside
Aerodynes now exist and are very reasonably (though far from perfectly) integrated into the game mechanics.
Feel free to badger the characters you would badger about getting your grubby hands on the flight stick in one these.
They are expensive and are easily more expensive than the ground vehicles available for purchase.
They are not faster than ground vehicles. This is mostly due to how complex the logic is to manage everything that happens when you fly.
They depend on piloting for use and aero_tech/auto_tech for repair. At present, they share body work parts with ground vehicles.
Theres a -lot- of empty, ambient space inside the dome wall. This will be getting filled in here and there with things, but don't expect the city to be a massive metropolis over night. This empty space occurs on the ground too, and if you land/stall/run-out-of-gas/crash into one of these places, you're stuck there ICly and someone will need to rescue you.
To those of you fortunate enough to be involved in testing, fall damage is now enabled. And yes, you can leave the craft while its in the air, and boy will it suck.
Again, expensive, not faster than cars, available ICly, but man are they fun. Oh, and compatible with ground vehicles (no bikes).
