    "The Merchant Airship is a non-combat vessel, intended to help players explore the world and trade any specialties they might come across."

    Do we have any insights into what the 'specialties' are? Is it like in BDO where you just shuttle crap between towns? Or is it something that actually makes transporting stuff around the map valuable?

    Regarding the player capacity on airships, how is it planned to be.
    For example : Can't we (Players) just jump on it and take a ride?
    or we will have a system that makes it non touchable and we fell thru if we jump on it?

    At least we have a real game to be excited about unlike that scam ashes of creation which is an overhyped unknown. This game is just getting more interesting with every update.


    pls keep them coming

    I like all the ship customization, and I'm curious what that merchant ship is for exactly, traderuns I suppose? Here's hoping ship combat will be fun and engaging and not too stale.

    So will we be able to freely fly around the world in our airships or will they be only usable in instanced arenas like in the G star gameplay? l mean like is it open world traversal/explorarion or what ?

    I think/hope that we'll be able to use them in the open world as well, otherwise I don't see the whole emphsis and the reason of implementing such an intricate system.

    This looks super interesting. I am guessing we can explore the world with our airship since we get one at endgame? Also, really interested to see if there will be trade runs with the crafting ship. Would be cool if we had to protect shipments from other players or mobs (pirates)

    Amazing work, I'm the most excited for the Jetpacks and Airships! It'll be interesting on how they will handle in-game.

    There are some interesting Infos at the post, PM Jouska have sended. These are some of my speculations about it (i can be wrong) Its just some things come to my mind, when i read the Infos about the Air Ships. ;)

    Sounds like a Tutorial - PVE?

    Sounds like: Single Player Air Ships for PVE Zones?

    Ships for PVP-Battlefields? Sounds like PVP only Mode/Zones?

    Sounds like (Open World?) only PVE Zone/Instance?

    Sounds like there is a large Open World PVP Zone/Instance?

    Raid? PvPvE?

    World travel System?

    I miss a colossal ship, I mean, we have the Colossal ship which can carry a lot of players but , something very very colossal more like a ballon which can carry a lot of weapons and few more players, and also I miss the fact that we can't use all ship whenever we want or almost that whats seems.... oh and maybe a variety in weapons? Like Harpon guns or Multipreyectil cannons or even cattapults with rocks to make other ships heavier and be in a lower heigh so you have adventage over they...

    Looks like it, judging from a few streams we definitely seem to be able to jump on other ships without falling through or anything at least.

    That's pretty clear, yeah, but the question is about the "player limit" given in the machinery post. How do they enforce the limits of 1, 2, 5, or 75 players on a particular ship?

    Yeah thats something I am wondering about as well. I could imagine that the airship speed could be greatly reduced (and maneuverability as well) when the player limit of a ship is exceeded maybe.
