Make "Anchoring" a real process


(king Bilibili) #1

Another “No sense” idea for PVP experience, but I guess that will make EVE more realistic. :no_mouth:


(Dyver Phycad) #2

You mean by throwing out an actual anchor on a chain?


(king Bilibili) #3

Emmmm … just don’t wanna "see four giant containers with 122m of length printing a structure with 259Km of length " :no_mouth:

You haven’t really explained what you want to change here…


(Old Pervert) #5

Nah, then he’d just complain that you can’t have a 5000km long chain in such a small vessel.


(Salt Foambreaker) #6

So we would need to drop the anchor and then drift back on the solar wind and set it?

How you figure out the correct scope? :wink:

I suppose we could measure the Z axis off the primary orbital plane of the system?


(Paradigm Calibre) #7

Like a jumbomini-game?


(Daoden) #8

So what your saying is rocket physics to determine a non decaying orbit around a celestial. That’ll definitely stop 99% of ppl from anchoring.

Clarke’s three laws:

  1. When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.
  2. The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.
  3. Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

Having those 4 containers be the foundation for the entire structure is entirely plausible.

How can you imagine a keepstar is anchored by such a huge container :hushed:
