How To Get The Airship In Final Fantasy XV
In Final Fantasy XV, that’s how you can transform your car into the Regalia Type-F and fly around the world. It’s easy to do but the worse part is you have to finish the game first.
Here’s a quick guide. To get the airship in Final Fantasy XV, you need to do two things:
1) Take down all three Niflheim bases. Every time you wipe out one of the Empire’s bases—which you can accomplish either by sneaking around, blowing everyone up, or a combination of the two—you’ll get a unique item. You need all three of these items to get the airship.
Playing through the main story will actually take you through two of these bases. The third, which I wound up beating after I’d finished the game, is located in Leide, just north of Hammerhead:
2) Talk to Cindy. And that’s it. She’ll upgrade you to the Regalia Type-F, and soon you’ll be cruising around Lucis, watching Final Fantasy XV go nuts trying to render all that terrain so quickly. (The framerate stays stable, but there’s a lot of pop-in.)
The airship is mostly a novelty. Trying to fly off the map will just lead you to bounce off invisible walls. You can only land on roads, which can be a finicky process, and if you try to land elsewhere—or fly into an obstacle—you’ll get to watch your entire party die in a flaming car wreck.
