    May as well keep posting while thinking of Arcanum - I just had a crazy idea.


    See one of the reasons I almost always play mages even tho the technologist stuff is cool, is the teleportation spell. Now techies can take trains - however - not every local has a train station. Technically this makes perfect sense, but I think itd be hilarious and cool if every single location - even the ancient and forgotten ones, had train stations.

    I'm just picturing a city in the mountains with a station and the tracks have that third hook-track-thing which helps steam engines climb mountains.

    I think it'd be even cooler if the ghostly pirate ship could transport you anywhere, even overland.

    Ghostly pirate ship, was that the one which takes you to that island at the bottom right?

    Ah ok, hmm would definitely help, but for my technologist dudes I want some made tech version, even a steam punk teleporter which you have to build at each location would be cool.

    Or possibly teleporting trains :p

    I needs more sleep

    Steampunk teleporters would be awesome.

    For a future mod, though, I think a hot-air balloon would be the neatest little tech solution.

    Mm, maybe you could make one with fuel, rags and crate, wire and a few other things. Would be neat

    The Russians have made a tech teleporter and even modified the teleport eye-candy colors to brown for use with it.

    Dig around their forum a bit and you'll see what I'm talking about.
    It looks really cool. :thumbup:

    Why not use the planes the molochean hand half-ogres did fly at the start of the game? That would have that Lilienthal/Wright feeling of mastering the winds and sky in nothing but a few sticks of wood covered with linen and held together by spit and hope... :cool:
