The balloon/helium/lighter-than-air thread to end all threads

#1
I actually went and searched for 'balloon' in this forum.
In no particular order, I present to you the number of times this has been suggested:
1. http://www.fromthedepthsgame.com/forum/s...hp?tid=642
2. http://www.fromthedepthsgame.com/forum/s...p?tid=1464

basically these fall into three main categories:
1. Solid lighter-than-air blocks.
2. 'Lifting gas pumps', like air pumps. But with lifting gas.
3. Larger balloons that are built out sort of like sails or something.


WE NEED A STICKY TOPIC FOR THIS.

We just need something to build the balloon out of if we would go with a helium pump style system, a lightweight and tanky fabric block with low armour value.

Alloy or wood would probably be light enough.

Nah, that wouldn't look right!

I really want this now that fuel use means that "just used powered heliblades" is not a particularly satisfying response.
Allr andask.

Theoretically speaking, if we just paint the glass blocks would that not look like cloth?
