The balloon/helium/lighter-than-air thread to end all threads
I actually went and searched for 'balloon' in this forum.
In no particular order, I present to you the number of times this has been suggested:
1. http://www.fromthedepthsgame.com/forum/s...hp?tid=642
2. http://www.fromthedepthsgame.com/forum/s...p?tid=1464
3. http://www.fromthedepthsgame.com/forum/s...?tid=13013
4. http://www.fromthedepthsgame.com/forum/s...?tid=13068
5. http://www.fromthedepthsgame.com/forum/s...?tid=11395
6. http://www.fromthedepthsgame.com/forum/s...p?tid=9864
7. http://www.fromthedepthsgame.com/forum/s...?tid=10158
8. http://www.fromthedepthsgame.com/forum/s...p?tid=9269
9. http://www.fromthedepthsgame.com/forum/s...p?tid=7027
10. http://www.fromthedepthsgame.com/forum/s...p?tid=1155
11. http://www.fromthedepthsgame.com/forum/s...p?tid=5326
12. http://www.fromthedepthsgame.com/forum/s...p?tid=4072
13. http://www.fromthedepthsgame.com/forum/s...p?tid=2761
14. http://www.fromthedepthsgame.com/forum/s...p?tid=2579


basically these fall into three main categories:
1. Solid lighter-than-air blocks.
2. 'Lifting gas pumps', like air pumps. But with lifting gas.
3. Larger balloons that are built out sort of like sails or something.


WE NEED A STICKY TOPIC FOR THIS.

Sometimes finishes things.

I like the 'airpump' option (2) the most.

We just need something to build the balloon out of if we would go with a helium pump style system, a lightweight and tanky fabric block with low armour value.

Alloy or wood would probably be light enough.

I really want this now that fuel use means that "just used powered heliblades" is not a particularly satisfying response.

Allr andask.

Theoretically speaking, if we just paint the glass blocks would that not look like cloth?

Sumus praecones bellum!
