A craftable hang glider that can be used to quickly glide down from a high-altitude spot to a lower one at quick speeds.
A Hang Glider that can be crafted using wooden sticks/handles and a cloth-like material (maybe dry-grass?) The Hang Glider will be held with two hands and used to glide at speed across a large distance if you have a high enough altitude. It is fast but it is dangerous, if you hit a wall while going too fast it can damage/kill you and if you are shot down by a bow & arrow you have a very low chance of survival. It can be used as a quick escape from combat, recreational fun and to get somewhere very fast. These would be useful for getting around the town from places such as the town hall but when the map is bigger it would also be a viable mountaineering equip to descend the mountains quickly.
A zip line like that would be great for letting players get around town without needing a new item, and the hang glider would be great for more exploring and getting down cliffs safely.
It would be really cool to have a village in the tree tops that use a lot of the zip lines and they could even have some magically enchanted/charged ones that don’t need to be slopped down so much too!
I think something like this would be great since it keeps the player body upright so there is less body disconnect.
Zip lines sound cool, but I feel like if we’re going to use zip lines, they would have to be either a personal unit, in some way, or expensive.
Having a useful, placeable object without any sort of real limiting factor (such as cost) would quickly get out of hand, as people would possibly craft a frakton of them (me) and place them literally anywhere.
I was more thinking the ziplines would be a part of the town, maybe broken at the start and in need of a repair, but not just something place able by anyone, the hang glider/para glider could serve for that kind of personal use. Though it would be fun to be able to make an expensive zip line to set up anywhere, but then you have the problem of people stealing it.
