that sucks for the HALO (high Altitude, low opening) fans...

I think if the dempeners open before hitting the ground is ok. If the look is kind of like in Minority report, it will look sweet

Imo, the whole 'flying' aspect of PS has been left out or simplifed a little too much, but that is understandable for a large scale game like this one.

And for sure, there will be a lot of new modifications to be done through patchs and the likes.

I hope they make everything more complexe so that everyone can find more expertise in their field of interest towards this game! All in due time of course!

Well, we don't actually know how high you can go. I bet it's not really that high at all, because then you'd be able to easily avoid fire from the ground. However, I guess we'll have to wait and see...

I wonder if it is self-activating, or you acticate them yourself, or perhaps both (an option you would choose if you want it to auto-activate or not)

I read before that they're automatic, so you don't have an option on when to flip them on.

Galaxies also hold buggies or light tanks....they arnt equiped with kenetic dampeners. You will still need to land.

Keep in mind that parachuting in real life has always had deadly consequences. Slow, controlled decent=easy target. I am guessing kinetic dampeners are the same way. Bailing out works, but landing is safer for the passengers.

Also there was no indication of a maximum height, just a minimum.

Kinetic dampeners are automatic.

Galaxy pilots STILL have to get the passengers to where they need to go, that won't always be easy.

Also Galaxies can be used as a light gun-boat, so there is other uses for a Galaxy pilot.

I thought that they would activate just before you hit the ground
