I personally like landing being difficult. More power to the skilled pilots!

Just flying any aircraft normally in real life damages it. ;P (I dont see a tiny tiny fraction of health loss when landing as that huge of a deal)

Thanks purple. I figured you weren't entirely serious. It's an interesting thing to notice though

Landing was still being tweaked when I played.

This x100. One reason I stopped playing battlefield after BF1942 and Desert Combat was all the helicopters got "easy mode" turned on. They no longer felt like helicopters with autohover and dumbed down controls. I've flown real helicopters and anyone who's ever flown anything, even an R/C aircraft, can tell you it's a lot more difficult than "press W to go". That's not to say we should turn this into a flight sim, but damn, make it harder than piloting a hot air balloon.

The Scythe looks like it would be no problem to land, besides, Reavers and Mossies are for sucks.

I gotta agree that it's more fun when it takes skill just to take off a bit. But PS2 looks like it'll have advanced AND easy flying. The fighters look easy to use, but the Galaxy looks INCREDIBLY HARD! I can't wait to fly it!

Mmmmm....pho. When i first saw Higby flying the reaver in the GDC vid I thought the flight looked very arcade-y (its a word !!) TBs video jettin around in the mosquito only confirmed my suspicions. That being said, Im glad to see that there might well be patience and skill involved in piloting, or at least landing, an aircraft.

Re: Major aircraft issue.


With all the possible ways to get killed in an aircraft in PS2, landing will be the least of the worries.

yeah, I lol'd at that. And the scythe face-planting in the night-ops vid was pretty chuckle-tastic too.

I think they just said that to hide their Indiana Jones inability to land aircraft.

Trees were sometimes the bane of my existence in Planetside 1... now I have to fear canyon walls too.

*puts on bike helmet* let's do this.

I'm looking forward to jumping on my ATV off a canyon wall in an experiment to determine the TTK of a Flash(?) on a Reaver. All in the cause of balance-checking 'yunderstand?
