Could you elaborate on why not? I respect your oppinion, I am just curious what your reasoning is?

Floaters are lots of fun. I love them. And it would be shame to be limited to just 35 days in a year. For me they are more worth then a ship. An ugly one if i might add. I don't really need floater on Fed Academy or any other map but New Romulus. Man that map is a pain in the... you know what. So Risa event, Risa default and New Romulus. That's all I want.

If I had to guess, the devs will make the floaters available for use elsewhere. Just look at the EV suit. It started off as only used in one mission. I believe it was "Boldy They Rode". Now you can use them on Nukara, Vlugata, and your fleet mine.

I strongly agree that we should get a chance to use them outside of the Risa summer event. In fact I went to the old Risa map and it doesn't work there

I would recommend starting out with social maps first: Bajor, Vulcan, Andoria, Starfleet Academy and Q'onos First City. Maybe merge Risa regular map with the Risa summer event map??

If that works out, then expand it to combat maps like Defera Borg Invasion, the Tholian dailies, STFs, and spice up some of the ground combat areas. I know that in "Cutting the Cord" (Romulan feature episode) and "The Undying" and "A Fistful of Gorn" (Romulan Republic storyline), a floater would be extremely helpful to get to places.

I don't know how long you guys have been playing computer games, but I had great fun in Duke Nukem 3D with a jetpack and an RPG. It's a hoot just gibbing lizard troopers from the air!

I wish Cryptic would clarify the issue. I'm sitting on a pile of favours I'm not willing to spend in case they announce that the floaters can be used elsewhere after the event.

Being told they can days before the end of the event is likely to cause the death of smaller toons as they get killed in the rush for the dance floor!

Floaters CAN NOT be used outside of the Risa Summer Event map nor will they become usable outside of the Risa Summer Event.

The maps have to be specially tailored for the floaters. The invisible walls that limit player movements in older maps where only designed for the height that a player can jump. Every map would have to be completely modified before they could decide to allow floaters on them.

What Cryptic could do is create more maps specially designed for floater usage at a later date, however there has been no indication that they have any current plans to do so.

Personally I'd love to see the floaters being combined with the EVA suites and having that combination being useable for some space EVA missions.

Floaters on New Romulus would be a BLAST! oh...um...

I would like to see, at the least, they redesign the regular Risa map to allow floaters. They should create a resort planet for our KDF "friends" too.

It's the EVA missions that I'd like to see. Getting around the outside of the fleet dilithium mine instead of using those posts would be a boon.

Klingon resort.....An active Volcano and a diving board so the 18% finally becomes -18% and we don't have to hear Klingons whine and about Klingon honor. After all it's a good thing for the Empire of Tribble so it must be good for us all, right?

That KDF resort planet will probably be Earth, once the Fed-Klingon war plays out to its inevitable conclusion.
