Just so it helps players identify if, when and where Galaxy drops happen.

Plus it just looks badass.

No additional functionality, just particle effects needed is all.

Similar to the effects in Planetside 1 that appears when players bail out of any air vehicles. I couldn't find any videos as an example though.

I'm not sure about ESFs/Libs, but Galaxy drops could probably have particles effects, even if those are only from first person perspective for the people dropping.

Right now it does feel a bit like you're being unceremoniously dumped, rather than carrying out a combat drop...

Yeah it does feel like they got it functional then moved on to another functional problem. Hope they come back to it for aesthetic sake.

I say add drop pods on the Gal. And I mean REAL drop pods that are attached (though unseen at first as it'll be inside the gal) and used (Though how that would be resupplied is anyones guess. Maybe a base that supplies them?).

Not just on Gal either. For dropping into hotzones too. You don't actually SEE drop pods. Something smiler from Dawn of War would be awesome and they can just disappear once they open up after a timer like on vehicles. So drop pods could share the same coding as them. I want to see the inside of drop pods too.

Like mentioned its kind of an anti climax when you drop pod or gal drop - know it's kind of hard to get it right for gameplay but one "hot drop" that never wore off was the one in Section 8: Prejudice being launched out the tube made it worth dying for me! If they managed to get that adrenaline rush style visual (both for the player being dropped and viewing it) it'd be spot on.

Wasn't saying hotdrops need to be in PS2 just the effect it gives off - no change in the mechanics

most players want it, devs already said they wouldn´t do it.

When dropping from Gals or aircraft with an Ejection System you should be able to see the Inertial Dampener, like in PS1.

I mentioned the other aircraft because it would help with ESF pilots complaining about bailers. This would make them easier to spot as they fall, of course make this only visible on those that have certed into the ejection seats, however keep it mandatory for Galaxies.

It just gives Galaxy drops that much more awesomeness.
