      How do YOU move while on the ground?

      Everyone knows flying is overrated. Ground based travel is way cooler. So, how do YOU move around when grounded?

      Most of the time I walk around casually, moving one leg in front of the other. Very relaxing.

      One very pronounced element of me attaining lucidity is that I suddenly have full awareness of the movement of my legs, the impact of my feet on the ground, etc, which is rare for my non-lucid dreams.

      I've once driven and once been a car passenger, being a passenger and having a DC drive me while I looked at the scenery is perhaps the most relaxing things I've done in LDing.

      Always, no sometimes think it's me,
      But you know I know when it's a dream
      I think I know I mean a yes
      But it's all wrong
      That is I think I disagree

      Not true at all Flying and hovering is much cooler.

      Anyway... i don't see how can you walk differently... When i'm on the ground i just walk like in real life...

      I enjoy walking around in Lucids, since I am amble to take in more detail and scenery. Sometimes, I will hover a few feet off the ground in a lotus position.

      Also, I'd take the Speed/Leaping set over the Flying set any day of the week. Flight makes you slow and vulnerable to -Fly effects. But Super Speed + Combat Jumping lets you kite very effectively and prevents immobilize fairly well.

      Flight is really only useful for concept characters or to complement TP.

      In your opinion

      Also, it's possible to fly faster as well... so i don't see where the "slow" comes from...

      It's just straight numbers. There's no reason to slot for flight speed when you can hit much higher base speeds with the other two powers. This is especially true now that everyone gets the fitness set automagically.

      I'd pull up Mids (or the new equivalent; I've been out of the grind for awhile now) to get the exact numbers, but I don't run Windows anymore.




      Hmm. I think I've forgotten which forum I'm on.

      I'm not sure whether you heard or not (i guess not), but lucid dreaming is not about the numbers

      So i'd rather stay to what i find the most fun way to move ^^

      Ah, I take it you're not much of a PvPer, then?

      It's all about the numbers and maneuverability when you hit up Warburg or RV.

      Flight just isn't as reactive as any other travel power.

      I knew that you must be talking about some kind of game... but i didn't play that one... No matter what multiplay game i play, i tend to aim for having fun, so yes i don't care about the numbers. It's the same way in LDs for me... i do what i find the most fun way of doing so.

      Okay, so what's the most fun way you have of moving around on the ground?

      Yep.

      You clearly lack imagination if the most exhilarating form of ground-based travel you can think of is walking.

      Not offended.

      Disappointed that you restrict yourself like this.

      You might believe you're thinking outside of the box with your decision to defame ground transport and remain airborne, but you're just confining yourself to a different, much smaller box.

      Lol. I'm glad to see you don't mind being the the sounding board, Mzzkc.

      How do I move while on the ground?

      I prefer to run ...

      Vehicles are ok... off-roading ones are fun.

      ~~~

      Not to support Mzzkc, as he doesn't require it XP but running and kiting is more effective than flying. Maybe not for EVERYONE as I'm sure there are some who have perfected flight abilities over ground-based methods... but I just assume those are more advanced dreamers. Generally flying does have that issue of control and slowness that takes a bit more effort to overcome than running/kiting.

      Flying requires the use of teleportation or some variant to be effective in combat.

      Unless you go the defensive route...but flying fortresses aren't as great as you'd think.

      P.S. Lol.

      About half the time in my lucids or just dreams for that matter, I'm on the ground. Flying is ok, but I like things up close. Usually, I don't walk. I just kind skim over the ground, if you know what I mean. Not moving my legs or anything, but not hovering. Kinda like sliding on ice. :3

      Straight up time control is a decent way to counterbalance the issues with flight. Personally, I use skips and flash steps to in combination with teleportation techniques to gain the advantage unpredictable speed can give you.

      The nice thing is all of those work on the ground, too. Which means even if they manage to ground you, you're not helpless.

      Example:

      Dilation on the other hand just makes things last longer and tends to leave you with a nasty headache.
