    1 problem I see with vehicles entering water is basically it is a block entering the water, like a wood frame. it destroys the water leaving those holes.

    question, will vehicles act as blocks or entities? entities wouldnt leave the holes

    They're already entities, so no worries.

    Nah, there's enough bickering and I don't need to add to it. Guppy started it by dashing my hopes with the trees though..

    Airport maybe, but in a few months or years of apocalypse things could get moved around, so finding a gyrocopter would be fine in a garage or backyard, since maybe they flew it home to get to their family and that is where it was left.

    How do the distance from 0,0 issues impact vehicle usage?
    Size, maybe.
    The game now has a dynamic origin point, which seems to be working well.

    Plus, I'm pretty sure the death trap part has nothing to do with getting the blade spinning fast enough for take off. You fail that and you just stay on the ground. I'd say the death trap part comes when you stall the thing out by doing something stupid that kills your forward momentum when you are 100ft up in the air.
    Death trap was a joke about the fact you are sitting in an open frame, with your feet hanging off the seat in open air. It looks like you could easily die, but gyro vehicles supposedly have a very good safety record in the real world.

    If y'all haven't already set modders up for success already.
    Hopefully I'll get a lot of stuff in xml, so fun can be had.

    As Guppycur said, they are entities. You can drive/fly any of them in water currently and they do nothing to water blocks.

    Heh! We ran into that when making an endless runner in Unity. We had to roll the terrain under the player like a treadmill. I donít know how that would work in multiplayer, though. Is the origin point set locally for each client?

    Didn't write and don't remember the code that well, but it should just be local to you based on your location in world.

    Best news (besides airships and lesser vehicles) of A17! The implications are mind boggling! I am now officially hyped! You may release the Kraken for our humble (no crybaby) testing!
