    Galaxy drops and why you die.

    Finally... I always wonder why i seem to die every time we do a galdrop.... It seems that no matter how far the fall actually is its the meters over sea-level on the galaxy that matters. 625 meters, you are fine. 650, probably fine. 675, dead every time even if the actual drop is about 200m.

    Well anyone flying a galaxy should know this so we can drop safely. Just something to think about so we hopefully can have a higher survival rate when doing galdrops =)

    so the rule: try to hit a slope, does not apply anymore then?
