I didnt know where to post this, so i just decided this was better than nothing. Why is it that all ships regardless of speed have the same descend/ascend speed? I can understand in cities, since they restricted to 200k's... but why is it that a gallo goes the same speed as a yt-1300? if there is no reason, i believe it should be changed, especially since smaller faster ships, usually end up descending/ascending more than a big ship.
Theres no need, also most ships would be restricted to a descent speed on a flight pattern like when approaching coruscant, plus theres always the problem of not going to fast because of re-entry temps. (They'd risk burning up)
Well at least thats one excuse for it, though it is better from a gameplay perspecitive for now, it may change later (much later...)

I for one would like to see the ascent/descent times significantly reduced. From a gameplay perspective there is nothing more annoying than having spent a week in hyperspace, another 3 to 6 hours in sublight and then finally 4 more hours going down then coming back up from planetside.
I understand the arguements for coding, time delays, flight patterns, etc. but at what point does it get cumbersome from a gameplay standpoint?

Consider it from a combat standpoint. If you attack something on the ground, or are otherwise trying to escape from a planet surface, is it in any way reasonable for you to be out of the gravity well and jumping into hyper before the defenders have logged on to see your attack?
