What are your talents? (part 5)
Vehicle talents in Solar Echoes are a bit unusual in that many of them are actually free! This means that you automatically get certain vehicle talents when you have invested the required amount of skill ranks in the pilot: terrestrial or pilot: air/space skills. We found that these talents add a lot of exciting options to car chases and starship battles for players, and that it made sense that when facing high level opponents with lots of skill piloting, they should be able to do more advanced maneuvers. The free maneuvers for terrestrial pilots include: 180 (degree turn), Drift, Sideswipe, and Swerve. The free pilot air/space talent maneuvers include: Fast Break, Immelman Turn, Barrel Roll Loop, Jinking, and Scissors Defense. However, if you really want to be an expert driver or pilot, you'll need to invest in some of the more advanced talents, such as Combat Pilot, Elusive Pilot, Maverick Pilot, or Hyperdrive Blink. These talents are more powerful and don't come free!
