Will flight dynamics be affected by the atmosphere? e.g aerofoils work in atmo and not in space. Ramjets?
Do the planets and other large objects have “gravity”. Basically, will we have to orbit.
Will the large ships be able to fire weapons onto the planets surface from orbit.
- Ships will have a bit different handling, loosely based on fixed wing aircraft. They will be able to go faster in the forward direction. There will probably be reduced lift when at an odd orientation. There will also be a speed limit on the ships.
If i recall correctly, it would basically be a catch all ‘hull stress’ meter to limit airspeed. Get to 100% on the meter, you are fine. Go above 100% and you begin to take damage. The faster you are going, the faster you’d take damage. If you peg the meter at max(like, say, running into the atmo at 9/10ths C), you’d just go boom.
The hull stress meter would also be used for pressure(deep down in gas giants), radiation(too close to suns), and gravity gradients(too close to black holes).
yes. And you’ll have to orbit if you don’t want to use thrusters. Keep in mind that several thousand km out, gravity is really, really tiny. Inverse squared law and all that. So a ship would be able to hover for weeks on end if they really wished. Stations would have to orbit though.
Probably, though whether standard weapons can, or if it takes a special bombardment style weapon will depend on final combat ranges in game.
