Boarding......

and discuss

There is already thread to discuss boarding: https://gunsoficarus.com/community/forum/index.php/topic,466.0.html

I figure so long as their rates are reasonable and there is a meal provided, I would prefer to staying at the Inn over of another cold night on the hammock slung between the turning engine. I hear there is this great little bed and breakfast in south west of the Fjord Baronies.

A way to blind everyone on a ship.
Then again...the balance is they can blind you, and the only true people it would hurt are the sniper ships, since anyone rushing in who is blind just needs to keep going straight at full speed...

Funnily enough there was, if I remember correctly, a bug in the early beta that turned the HUD upside down. No gravity change though...

You were not around to see the Artemis firing heat-seaking projectiles. It was as nightmarish as it sounds.

Were they heat seeking as in if your engines were off they would not track you, or heat seeking as in guaranteed hit 100% of the time.

oohhh that'd be interesting..... if it were truly based on heat, I could see this:

playing a very tactical role... but this is of course only if heatseaking was still around :)

I'm pretty sure they just went for guns and engines, regardless of whether they were in use.

Hardcore pilot mode: control the thrust of each engine individually. No wheel, just three throttle meters (four on a squid). Keys Q, W, and E increase the speed of the left,center, and right engines respectively. Keys A, S, and D do the same for decreasing.

Super Hardcore pilot mode, same as above only with three more levers to adjust the angle of attack on the propeller blades, and the possibility of the engine overheating or stalling if you do it wrong.
