I know EVE isn’t a dog fighting game or anything like that but… I just want to fly upside down. (There’s no up and down in space I know I know but you know what I mean!) Anyone else in the same club?
I also know that EVE physics engine doesn’t allow this, but I’m curious as why? Has there been any technical post from devs that explain this? I couldn’t find anything myself. All I’ve heard is that EVE physics are more like “submarine physics” but yeah, would like to hear more indepth, official answer.
I do also wonder if the ships could fly upside down, would this affect aligning and that sort of thing? Maybe it could add some more depth in combat, like if you rotate around your horizontal axis, would it be faster than vertical axis sometimes?
Of course I would ideally like to see momentum too so that drifting would be possible, but I doubt it would work when it comes to the controls and gameplay EVE. I like to believe the ship thrusters are so well made that they can bring a ship in full stop in space.
I’ve also had this thought that EVE space is so dense and full of gases that the celestial objects have hard time going around their orbit, which could work as an explanation why planets don’t move etc. (The bigger the thing, the slower it aligns and moves.) Doubt that makes any sense when thinking about real world physics however. Sci-fi wise tho, what do you think?
Will go to bed now, gonna check your replies in the morning!
