With the 2 test air strips in Stationary ships, you can create spawnable bases ANYWHERE. Personally I have wanted this for a long time...

LoL, yes, I believe this is a great feature. It really lets you take advantage of all the great scenery that would otherwise remain unseen by making bases on islands and in places where there normally aren't any. One thing I have a fib with... The runways are of a certain thickness, therefore the surface of the runway is a little off the ground it stands on. If you fall off the runway, your plane might flip over etc. I also wish the length of the runways could be adjusted either with a slider or with a variety of different runway lengths modelled. Soemtimes you see a nice piece of flat land you want to place a runway on, but there's a small hill nearby and the runway clips into the hill...

Due to recent events, I reasoned I would save about 4-16 keystrokes a day if I just put it in my profile http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif.

Me too been wanting to palce Runways where I want. For several reasons but with them elevated it still has draw backs. We are gaining some. I asked along this line awhile back. Request (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums?a=tpc&s=400102&f=63110913&m=244107352&r=244107352#244107352)

shorter runways would be good .. not just to fit on small islands but to increase the challenge

what would be even more challenging would be those crazy mountain top super short "land up hill and fly off the cliff" strips they have in New Guinea

I believe that to use them they must be treated just like a carrier, so you must release chocks on take-off, and planes will disappear after landing.
it would have been better if they were a little shorter and without height, and almost clear in colour to see just a slight difference from the surrounding ground.

you can construct airfields anywhere, even in AEP/FB,and get flights to take-off, but they will not land back there, so one of these strips would change that......
