Didn't think about that, but yeah! That's how they made it with the Force Leap Ability. I really really hope they'll ake this possible. And I hope you guys maybe could spread the word about this kind of ability!

Is there any forum for suggestions or so?

When you think of these things, don't forget to work out how this would apply to our mirror, the Trooper. I was thinking about a targeted, jet boosted leap of say 30 meters. That could work for both classes, especially with Powertech/ Vanguard. Thoughts?

Yeah, we've been talking about the Trooper version of this ability. We came up with a grapple. So you can grapple yourself to a set point.
But these abilties should mainly be for Mercenary/Commando since we are pretty often stuck in tight PvP situations where we need some kind of escape ability, a mobility buff.

The Vanguard already has "Storm" to the Powertech's Jet Charge. It's essentially a running jump of up to 30 meters, so they can already do that.

Though this thread is about something else! This is about the Mercenaries and the Commandos, about an mobility buff for them to escape tight situations (in PvP for example).
Please, check the YouTube link that I have in the first message in this thread. An ability like that in the video but instead with a JetPack for the Mercenaries and a Grapple for the Commandos.

Sorry, I was unclear - I was pointing out that Bioware has already shown that they can come up with a non-jetpack animation for the Trooper class that works to mirror a jetpack movement ability. And the person I was quoting brought up Vanguards and Powertechs.
