Have you ridden the ferry at night during a storm?Follow

I was quite impressed. I took over 30 screen shots... yet just like real lightning, it's hard to catch on film and I didn't get anything near as impressive as what I saw in game. I shoulda made a FRAPS video, it was truely amazing and enough incentive for me to take the ferry back to Ul'Dah instead of using return. Which is odd as I really don't enjoy the ferry in this game as it has 0 danger and I don't really fish yet.

I've seen it a few times and yes it is quite erratic, I watched it for a while and it seemed truly random as to where it would strike and what it would look like. A nice little touch in the game.

I'll answer your question with another question:

Have you ever licked a lampost in winter?

It's too bad the sense of movement sucks on an otherwise nice boat ride. They should make the wake it creates bigger & maybe a little rocking motion. And while they're at it make mobs randomly appear & have a NPC vendor on board like XI.

Yea, it was amazing. Imagine if that kind of weather animation was applied to zones!

I experienced it during day time and even that was amazing. I can imagine the light show^^

First time I sailed in that weather it did make me feel a bit uneasy :x and from XI's experience I was expecting the ferry to get attacked by some scary monsters (also, people starting out in Limsa do have that in their opening cutscene so....). Not a very pleasant ride @_@
