Will there be a weather factor to the game?
like if your fighting in a hurricane/ any bad storm, airships should fly much slower, weapons become less aureate, flame weapons become less powerful etc.
Yep, it's on the todo list for the next version, actually. Both weather and time of day will influence gameplay in a bunch of ways. I like the idea of heavy winds making flamethrowers (and grenades, perhaps) much less useful.
or perhaps if there is a typhoon in your match it will fling ships around?
Imagine if in really strong winds the flames from flame throwers would blow back and hit your own ship.
I'm surprised no one's pointed out the potential for shenanigans like lightning storms; I'm assuming if they were added, we'd also get some kind of lightning rod add-on for ships and buildings?
