IceCold Posted July 4, 2003 Report Share Posted July 4, 2003 The lurker speaks If you want a modern space SIMULATOR look up Orbiter. It is freeware and is the most accurate space sim I have ever encountered. (If you thought BC was hard, try launching the shuttle into orbit or a moonshot!) In regards to battle cruiser, I would only change one thing in the physics model: Relative speed. It drives me absolutely crazy when a station speeds away from underneath you in an EVA. If you are attached to an object, you have the same velocity and direction as that object. If you thrust up using your jet pack you will still maintain the horizontal speed of the station. This would also allow for the actual use of the orbital supply depots. *disclaimer* this may have been changed in BCG but I have heard nothing about it In terms of energy and force: Electricity and Magnetism are related by Maxwell’s 4 equations but they are not the same phenomena. A principal difference of magnetism is the non-existence of magnetic monopoles that is you cannot have a positive magnet, there will always be a positive and a negative end. Electric potential is different in that you can have a net positive object and a net negative object. Shadow, Electrostatic forces also work is space.
