    If it hasn't been said yet...an unicycle.
    Tumerboy once said that a unicycle was the only kind of ground vehicle that would work in the code. I was all excited about the idea, but apparently somebody didn't think unicycle-riding superheroes would be all that popular. :wink:

    Idea that came to me today: Car-Surfing. You grab onto a passing car, and are able to ride it wherever it goes until you need to dismount/change cars. Sure, it'd only work in VB and MC, but still.

    IIRC Taco's explanation was basically that the code checks only the center point of the player's location. To make driving vehicles work they need to pay attention to front and back.

    Well, I'd imagine a costume piece is a lot easier to make than a vehicle.

    My philosophy is pretty much like Doc Brown's -- "we don't need roads." All of my favourite heroes aren't grounded. They're either leaping, flying, swinging, or 'porting. There are the rare exceptions, like Ghost Rider, where the vehicle is the gimmick, but even Batman, imo, is better off without his Batmobile.

    Fine, put bunny slippers on the unicycle pedals. There, reused assets. Now gimme my unicycle I was promised like 4 years ago.

    Elemental Flight Powers (Themed Travel Powers).
    #1. Earth. A Burrowing travel power -we have them already but how many versions of flight do we have without anyone saying anything? (Or perhaps metal: that burrowing achieved by becoming something like a mechanical mole?)
    #2. Air. Become the breeze (at first), a Sirocco (with a point invested) or a Gale (with points maxed out).
    #3. Fire. A jet of flame arcs across the sky. (You know you want to.)
    #4. Water. A rolling thunderhead of seething cloud scuds across the empyrean (because I didn't want to say 'sky' again so soon. Kinda like cloud flight except without the rainbow.).

    and maybe -since it's getting towards Chinese New Year-
    #5. Wood. (Wood is a 5th element by Chinese reckoning.) A tangle of roots churn and writhe across the ground (like burrowing except with serpentine sapling effects twisting along the path.)

    Unlockable individually for those that say 'ooh THAT one!', or as a set (for those with a hero concept that can justify all of them, like some kinda shapeshifter maybe).

    The one I want is the boiling thunderhead scudding across the sky.

    Roller blades and skateboards. So I can make a skater with a baseball bat.

    Yeah, they'd have to significantly update/upgrade the code to make vehicles work right. And, I doubt they want to do that.

    could retool the grapling gun to do this as well =)
