lets say your in a galaxy, and you jump out some how, while in flight, is there some kind of parachute, can you even get out while in flight, or would you fall to the ground and hit the ground like a sack of patatoes?

Kinetic dampeners kick in. They slow down your descent and you hit the ground taking no damage. I think there is a certain altitude where they won't fire if you are below it. Really close to the ground wont turn on the dampeners, but it won't hurt you that bad to jump 12 feet out of a plane.
EDIT: Dang you Sputty!

I'm pretty sure that you will take damage.

It actually depends on the height you jump out of actually. Basically if you are too low to the ground, the kinetic dampeners can't kick in fast enough to dampen the fall. It is the same as if you jump out of a plane too low for your parachute to open in time.

I don't believe you need a cert to use the kinetic boots.

But if you can jump out and not take damage, whats the point in landing (other than when peoples getting in). It would really take out some of the fun in being a good pilot.

Everybody can use Kinetic dampeners, which act like a parachute

No dmg from any height they can activate from (jumping height will still hurt)

No cert for um, they just are

You pilot a Galaxy full of troops past a base of turrets, a roving Skeeter/Reaver defense, and a line of AA MAXes. Tell me if it's easy.

Raccoon, that's what they are. I think, so don't quote me on this, that the higher you are, the better the dampeners work. All jumps from certain height up don't hurt you. But, if you are a mile above a base I don't see how you can drop anyone effectively. I have an idea. The higher you jump, the more you slow down. So if you jump from a mile up, your squad will be target practice.
