Hello Everyone,

We would like to hear some input on an idea that we would like to implement after this next patch.

The idea is that we would like to add a 'Hyperdrive' feature that would allow you to travel through space at speeds of around 15,000m/s or so. This hyperdrive would automaticly disengage if your ship came within about 1000-5000 meters of any other object or ship.

We would like to hear everyone's ideas on this and how the rules might be changed to make it better, and what the best distances/speed might be.

UPDATE: This will not actually be a MODX afterall, every ship will inheritly have this ability. Also players will probably have to bring their ships momentum/speed down to at least a near stop we think, and possibly have a timer before it will actually engage. Also you will not be able to turn your ship in hyperspace, and when you come out of hyperspace your ship will take a small period of time to fully disengage the hyperdrive.

Thanks Everyone!
The silly thing here is most folks will get pissy when normal spacelane traffic hamper this new "autopilot"

*Yawn* You call that fast? :razz: It is just a small fraction of the speed I've done. Unfortunately my top speed and distance is TRI-Classifed. However, I can say that I went beyond the 2 Billion meter mark (by a significant amount), and only stopped to take a pic. I forgot to take a pic of my top speed (and I was still accelerating).

*sigh* Does the sim count? :grin:
