Dave Talks Terrain, Destruction & More Goodies Ahead

80 Comments

We're now stopping in with Dave to talk more about the next scenario which will include how terrain moves around, moons and the fact that we might be able to get stuck into a BIG game featuring all manner of ships.

“If you crash a Battleship into the Moon, do you win two spot-prizes?” Hahah!!!! Give that man a spot-prize for his ingenuity!!! Brilliant!

I can see someone not quite flying into a moon on purpose. More of a semi intentional drift.

There is a crippling roll that forces you not to be able to turn. . .

“Ramming speed!”
“But Captain that’s a moon!”
“That’s no moon, it’s a space station”
“No…I’m pretty sure it’s just a moon.”

Just for argument’s sake, how many hull points would a moon have? (thinking first person to destroy a moon)

I must admit, I’m not a fan of having moons in the game,
If we take Earth as an example, I’m fairly certain it was mentioned somewhere that High Orbit is around the realm of geostationary orbit, so about 35,000km. Our moon meanwhile orbits at about 380,000km, so over 10x as high.

Ah well, I suppose I could always justify it as an impossible mission for our planet, and only occurs over planets where there’s a moon in /very/ tight orbit around the planet.

You read my mind with this, I’d be inclined to leave them out altogether….

I’m just waiting to see that some lucky bloke managed to whittle his opponents fleet down to only the battleship which then gets critically damaged and it’s orbital decay causes it to crash into the moon all before anyone else does any of those three and so claims all three spot prizes in one go :D.

I can see the game being really fun/interesting with a bunch of ‘smaller’ moons all over the place. But you could go under them.

all the Terrain sounds really cool! you guys should hack in comets and ice geyser (comming form moons). using planets rings is really cool, gives you that classic moment form the new star trek movie! love it!

I’m just going to put my battleship over by this moon… It’d be a shame if it suffered an engine failure… Yes… Quite a shame… *Looks to opponent hopefully*

Watching everyone enjoy themselves really brings the game to life.
