Re: Speaking of FTL... Warp Drive may be feasible scientists

Well, this particular one is possible according to our physics model, as in, it doesn't break the rules. It's likely to be a logistical impossibility though. It's about bending spacetime, which is very much accepted in science(the basic idea is that the vessel doesn't actually move in a kinetic sens...

Re: Speaking of FTL... Warp Drive may be feasible scientists

Yeah the 'exotic matter' in this case, is matter with negative gravity.

Re: Painful stalemates.

Yeah the shield can be Ioned down... just target your ion and lasers on it and you'll win eventually.

Re: Gimbal (Multiplayer Space Combat)

That looks interesting actually. Like multiplayer SPAZ. I have a soft spot for games that let you design your own weapons/ships/robots/etc.

Re: [BUG] A Bazillion bugs in blueprint.xml

Not all of those are actual bugs, in fact several are likely to be weird simply weird coding practice, and may be engine related(the game expects them that way). The <!---> comment ones are unlikely to cause problems, I've seen that done the same way elsewhere(dungeons of dredmor, specifically).

Re: "Is it warm in here? " achievement help

It's tricky/very difficult yes, but it's possible. You basically have to set their entire ship on fire though, which is easier with smaller ships(the easiest ship to get this achievement against is probably the slug interceptor, only has 3 connected rooms). Getting some ion weapon and a fire beam wo...

Re: FTL MMO? Just a random thought.

Roguelike and MMO are genres that don't go together. It's like lemon juice and milk, you end up with a curdled mess.

I've had that happen as well, more than once. Extremely frustrating.

Re: FTL MMO? Just a random thought.

Also I think the massive multiplayer aspect is a bit out of a 2man teams league. The coding and the servers to connect players together in a larger world would probably require a bigger team and funds. Well, not necessarily... NEStalgia is a decent success, although granted BYOND is not a great pla...
