My character wandered around the Lighthouse world today, and polished off a few “Super Scarabs” and “Queen Glow Scarabs” with the trusty old automatic “Captain” heavy automatic weapon.
Anyhow, I encountered a staging area near the Car Valet, where a number of other characters had summoned
their vehicles… and not bothered to ride them… they had just wandered off and killed a few scarabs I suppose.
First, I tried to get my character to procure one of the unattended vehicles by using the “E” or use key.
Unfortunately, you can’t nick or borrow another characters bike, pig or car.. maybe that ability will be developed later in the game.
One thing I was surprised about though, was that after hacking away at an abandoned bike with a machete weapon, the bike unexpectedly blew up.. .this was in a supposed “safe zone” where you can’t damage other characters. This godmode setting obviously does not apply to character vehicles though! A Very odd Quirk!
Somebody unknown then killed my pig stone dead before I could even hop on it, presumably in retaliation. The poor thing, when “destroyed” changed form into a pathetic pile of bacon, curled in a foetal position.
The pig is pretty immortal though- pay 500 coins to the garage valet, and they will fix the pig up, good as new. All i can presume is that this petrol guzzling, brute of a trained mutant swine is actually either a cyborg creature, or it’s a member of the undead race?
The catch was that it was not available for 3600 Seconds after total destruction though. Presumably the same applies for the unattended bikes I merrily destroyed that day too.
Anyway, in Skies, if somebody is causing you grief, particularly around the “capture the flag” zones, and you know they have a car, bike or pig that they use to maintain control of the flags, camping out at a valet station, and smashing their vehicle while the rest of your party captures the flags. 🙂
