Hey Guys,

I thought of this idea while watching 007: A View to Kill last night!

With the parachutes, maybe they will be used in Modern Day by Desmond. As in he uses them to ssave him with a LOF instead of the Hay!

But that's probably more likely for AC3 then Brotherhood!

Ezio will probably just use them if he accidenly falls or something, which will be usefull! A bit like n Just Cause 2 where you can pull it when you fall or jump off something!

What are your thoughts on this idea?



PS. Sorry if this is considered spam or anything, i know there are other threads and i posted there too but i just wanted to tell you guys where you would most likely see it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

Yeah I bet the parachute could be used like in Just Cause 2! I'm guessing there will be certain areas in the city and also certain parts in the story when Ezio has no choice but to use it. That would suck to do a Leap of Faith and not have any hay below! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

I can't imagine that working, to be honest. Desmond'll just radically redefine dumpster diving for his Leaps of Faith.

Hahaha as sick as that sounds, I'm pretty sure the parachute will just stay with Ezio (for now). If Brotherhood actually has Desmond running on roofs, I doubt we will be doing LOF off of multi-story buildings.

They might. We know that Desmond'll get a new outfit and even more action in Brotherhood. We also know that the development team sees doing a Leap of Faith as a big moment in becoming an Assassin, because of how the one you do after Ezio's initiated is treated. So what better way to say "Here is Desmond, he's finally badass" than to give him a Leap of Faith? And some stabbing, of course.

Yeah, with the whole initiation thing. Let's go jump off the Empire State Building!

Just Kidding, but that would be sick hahaha!

The Flying Machine was a glorified Parachute really wasn't it? It only flew because they stuck fire underneath it.

Well, not really, it was just a glider. But it wasn't a exactly a parachute because it didn't go straight down. Even with fires under you, you can't steer a parachute into a palace http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

There are designs for a parachute that Da Vinci made, i saw it some TV show thing and they tested and it actually worked. It was a weird pyramid shape though, maybe this will be what they use in Brotherhood http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

That's more than enough proof for me. Then again, this parachute is probably made from modern parachute materials while Leo's parachute back then would have been made of some kind of reinforced cloth. Great find though! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Yeah, I did a project on that parachute by da Vinci, and it would be a good aspect for Ezio.

I think the only reason why the parachute is special is because it would be the first ever. I wanna know when does he get the parachute and how does da vinci get the idea, and where would ezio use it. What will he do a leap of faith into a hay stack that someone moves last minute? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Welcome to the forums, Spartan! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

And yeah if the parachute will be used like that, then there's no doubt you could do that.

Then while you laugh he lets go of it, falls on you, and stabs you with his blade.

But yeah it seems more of a convenience thing that something that most people will actually use.

According to wikipedia:Only slightly later, a more sophisticated parachute was sketched by the polymath Leonardo da Vinci in his Codex Atlanticus (fol. 381v) dated to ca. 1485.
Same story with the flying machine.Perhaps there will be an achievement like falling from <x> meters high.

Here is a link to a sieries of based on Leonardo da Vinci called: The Man Who Wanted To Know Everything...

It contains some people making Da Vincis Parachute out of only materials he would have had and followed his every instruction...

rely that screams poe adiction

anyway can anyone tell me where i can find the info where they talk about including the parachute?

also: maybe it's a one time thing like you need to descend down a long tube-like room with no hand/foot holds for a mission. And leo invents it for you

Damn Da Vinci has invent alot things. He is the most important person in history beside Jesus in by my opinion. To be off topic I love James Bond View to a Kill!
