Wow, I never expected to get nearly half a million views on this video! I guess that warrants a better description. A few points that seem to come up a lot:
- Skip to ~3:40 to see the jump. I included the lead up to the jump so that everyone could see how I was climbing in the hot air balloon. I'm not sure how it works, but the ceiling limit for the game is much higher when in the hot air balloon than in any plane. In other words, you can go MUCH higher in the balloon than flying a plane as high as you can go and jumping out. Also, jumping out of a plane doesn't qualify as a "base jump" for "Fall Height" records. In order to get this high, just keep pressing the gas button on the balloon until you get to the top. Despite everyone complaining about the first three minutes being boring, I actually cut out about 20-25 minutes of climbing!
- The reason I pull my parachute at the end is that I wanted to get the record for biggest Fall Height (you have to land safely in order for the jump to count). As you see at 6:35, I accomplished this by beating the Avalanche team record. Stupidly, I didn't save my file before I shut off the PS3, and so the jump was never recorded on my profile. : (
- This video was taken from my PS3 straight from un-modified in-game footage. No Mods!

Most of all, thanks for watching! Hope you enjoyed the video!
