Re: G-force Meter

I think this subject is being overthought. If Pioneer becomes a totally realistic simulator it will take the fun out of it for many, if not most people. Realistic G forces would also require a redesign of all the ships into tailsitters. Up would be the opposite direction of the thrusters. We could s...

Re: Music/Soundtrack

Jamieboo, I listened to it and liked it a lot! In fact I tried to download it for my personal copy of Pioneer.

Re: Police craft - replacement

If this was the forum I'd press the 'like' button. :) I haven't fired on a ground station in quite a while, but the last time I did the ships docked there disappeared and were replaced by police ships. Immersion suffers a bit when you see something like that. The police would logically have their ow...

Re: Sphere station

In a station that rotates to make 'gravity', up is the direction to the axis of rotation and down is the direction away from it. It's something that is often portrayed wrong in science fiction, with windows that would be in the floor. I'm not sure if that's the case here.

Re: Ship manufacturers

I really like the backstory idea. Would the text be in the data/ships/<shipname>.lua file with a tag to tell the game how to display it?

Re: Hyperspace

I'm not the best person to comment on this because I never got past 'Hello World' in C++, but fwiw. There was some discussion about this about a year ago. A problem was discovered when Sagittarius A was added to the game. There was a fixed system entry point distance that put you inside the event ho...
