Since we recently got changes to the sky level map, AKA Z LVL 1-2 etc
We now have a entire level which consist of 99,99% empty air and space.
In theory it would be quite simple.
Just like the new mainline boats which works on [WATER] tiles, how about one that works on [AIR] tiles?
The new type would be able to stand on the normal ground, or any level it was constructed on, and fly up levels to a set level depending on its type, if there is no roof blocking it’s way. If standing on solid ground it would only be able to go up, and not move across the ground. And as the parts would be fragile and the mass allowance is limiting you greatly, you woudnt be able to make a mix of air and ground transport.
We could have different types
JET: it would be very fast (min 300-400) but need special fuel type and be very expansive to fly, medium mass allowance
Rotors: Would be cheaper but much slower, heavy mass allowed, battery or fuel
Ballons: Cheap but very slow and would need some sort of propeller, or sails. And would only allow for very low masss
Would make for a nice endgame occupation
