Q&A / Re: 'Landing mechanic'?

No reason for an airship hull to be watertight in the same way.

(The game currently counts the water on maps like Water Hazard and Anglean Raiders as "ground"; colliding with it deals damage.  If you want a semiphysical explanation: think about drowning a hot boiler in cold seawater.)
Thanks for the answer. I don't exactly need a rational explanation but it certainly is fun to ponder about it!

Dangerous chemicals in the seawater? Or just the negative effect water has on 'delicate' machinery?

Pilot: "What do you mean, a cup of water wrecks the engines? You are whacking it with a large mallet as we speak!"

On the other hand: maybe the ships have been altered in such a way that they are physically unable to function as a 'normal' ship (too heavy, too little buoyancy etc.)?

Q&A / 'Landing mechanic'?

Heya all, I have been browsing the forum a bit and came across this post:

In terms of Island maps, that would be rather nice to look at, but from a gameplay view they wouldn't work too well- far too open, and you couldn't drop people into the terrain due to the 'landing' mechanic that's present when you hit water.

My question being: What kind of landing mechanic is Wazulu talking about? I admit it's easy for me to get the answer: start a game myself and just test, see what happens! However, since I don't really have the wonderful opportunity to do some !!science!! for a few days, I wonder what happens!
Logically, the ship would be degraded to a measly nautical ship; or is this a faulty assumption?

Clearly Sky Whales have been intelligently designed by one or more omnipotent being(s) that the world of Icarus is still in conflict about.

What about labourers? Able crews? (a.k.a. the players!)

Helpful guide of excellent quality!

A warm welcome! (probably fresh out of the oven, huh? andyesIamalreadystartingoncakepunsohhelpusgod)
Out of curiousity: I'm sure there are a lot of nationalities around, but what's the usual playing timezone? Mostly a US timezone? Or some kind of 'smorgasbord' of various timezones?

Played with some of your members as well, would like to try a more structured approach to Guns of Icarus =]
