Ensign (1/8)

  1. You all are almost right, but here is how it goes. An engine, no matter how small, does affect a ship. It just takes longer to bring up to the maximum speed the engine is capable of if the ship is large. Now if the engine is a combustion type, then it will have a maximum speed at the rate in which the fuel is burned. Now the faster a ship goes, the more fuel is required to keep the ship accellerating. Even if you had all of the chemical energy in the universe, you wont be able to get the ship to reach light speed. Next, after the ship has reached the speed the captain desires, the engines can be cut. That is why shuttle fuel last so long, it doesn't need to keep burning to keep moving. Also, the "sling shot" effect can be used for long distance travel, which is using gravity to propel you by circling an object (like the earth) and then firing the engines to break away from orbit. The Apollos used this technique. Third, the moon can be affected by hooking up a drive, regardless of where you place it. However, the drive will not be able to push the moon to the highest potential due to gravity in the universe effecting the moon. Also, gravity will pull the ejected gases back to the planet, which consumes some of the kenetic energy being developed by the engine, thereby slowing down the moon (very slightly). Now, if you have a fusion drive, the engine will eventually send to you light speed. This also eliminated the problem with gases slowing down the moon, and also the gravity problem is partially eliminated. However, light speed, currently, has been determined to be the fastest thing in the universe. The maximum speed possible is light speed, unless of course space and time is warped, like hyperspace and warp drive. The reason being is that the energy resulting from fusion (or fission), is as fast as light, and a ship can only go as fast as the energy propelling it. Anyway, with fission or fusion, the rate of accelleration is still related to the size of the engine and the mass of the ship, so still a shuttle and a CC will accellerate at different speeds. But, unlike combustion, the size of the engine does not matter, it will still push the ships to the same max speed regardless of mass, even if the shuttle had an engine a million times the size of a CC!
  2. I noiticed that I can add my own music to UC by copying mp3 files into the Universal Combatsoundfxmusic folder. I can get them to play, but once once of the songs end, the music no longer works. I have music that has a bit rate of 128 Kbps, does it need to be 256 Kbps like the other music files? Or is this not really a feature and is unsupported?
  3. I know there is nothing of interest, but I use that area to warp to the homeworlds of each race. But thanks for looking into it Mr. SC.
  4. I have been trying to get to the region that has the debris field and all of those flux fields, but it has not been letting me. I first tried getting through at flux field 20 near Alteris, but I got a CTD. Then, I decided to try flux field 19 near Gamma-1, and I also got a CTD. However, the flux fields that do NOT go to that region work. I have reinstalled the game from scratch and executed the patches in the UC folder, but the flux fields to that region still do not work. I suspect it may be the Debris Field causing the problems.
  5. This happens to me too. It seems to happen after a new ship either spawns in the current region, or when one comes through a gate.
  6. Yeah, I learned that one when he tried to nuke russia back in the cold war. Now there is a BIG OL' PADLOCK on the door to launch control. (Missle launch) OH CRAP I FORGOT THE VENTS!
  7. Jonas, I can't believed you said that. What you do to your fantasy girlfriend and your firewire port is none of our business.
  8. SC, this happen when I was terran/military in the campaign. I could order around a ter/raider ship. I would send a save game, but I thought this was one of those rare bugs and didn't create a save.
  9. SC, I think your MD5 hash is incorrect. quote: 6c0b69137f321742e39dce3013a4314c uc2.00.11.exe Shouldnt that be uc2[1].00.11.exe ?
  10. Thank you (thinks of when I first posted)
  11. I'm astonished you didn't get your profile deleted yet whaven. Fig your signature fast (go to the index of the forums, and click "Read This NOW! (Updated!), and after you get your answer in this post, I suggest you read around first aqnd use search, or you will get banned for posting monotinous questions. Many questions are found in other game forums as well, like Battlecrusier Discussions.
  13. Yes, I beamed down my AE and cargo at the same time. I used LOADOUT in the tatical computer, clicked TP, loaded up cargo (10 APM-RADIX at ALL times) And loaded up my AE. To test out and make sure it isnt related to the transporter use, I also used a shuttle to get to the surface and used the same vehicle. CTD. Next, I had one of my vehicles brought down to the surface, then I beamed down, got in, picked up cargo, and NO CTD. Then it reported "OC-1 has collected cargo."
  14. he must be in a time machine, where a day t him is till armegedon to us
  15. quote:Originally posted by Takvah: quote:Originally posted by Ditto00: [qb] yes its radine And we already now that the reactor provides backup power, what we are trying to figure out is what the power setting in logistix does for the solar reactor Well I know this won't satisfy you but perhaps the obvious is unacceptable for one of your, "love to chase my own tail" mentality. IT DOESN'T DO JACK SQUAT. Go ahead and change the settings. Hell turn it off. Hmmmm... interesting? Not really. I chalk it up that some things are there for affect and if it came down to me needing 5 units of power I would turn that sucker off and likely notice no diminished ability. Sometimes we have to accept the obvious rather than chucking it aside and ignoring it in favor of the obscure. Chill out dude. No need to chafe people's hides. And besides, if you read my other posts, I believe it doesn't have any significant ability either. It's another one of SC's evil schemes, and it's working on me. Alright anyway, I just leave the reactor set to off. On or off, it still provides me with power.
