[Mini-Upload] Space-Brake System (Plus: gif, wallpaper, screenshots)

156k spefyjerbf  1.8 years ago

Sorry about the frequent forum posts - I try not to spam too much, but the system in my previous forum post is actually quite interesting. I decided to upload the system as an unlisted post for your use, as its space applications can actually be quite useful.

The system captures a flare with a magnet, and when that flare de-spawns, the craft comes to a complete stop. If the system is not placed near the CoM, or if the craft is really heavy, then the system doesn't work too well.

Anyway, here's a gif of it in action!

If you want to download the modified EXO-Orbis that was used to test this system, you can find it here.

The testing was good wallpaper fodder, too!
It has been a while since I took a vehicle to space. I forgot how beautiful the SP-version of space can actually be. I captured some great screenshots, and decided to turn one of them into a wallpaper. All I had to do was adjust the colors a tiny bit, and then slap on the Orbis logo.

And, of course, some screenshots...
This system is great for screenshots! Here are a few that I took up in space.

Here's the link to the testbed that I used.
If you want the system by itself, then feel free to check out this unlisted post

Don't worry, my next post will actually be a full upload. I teased it enough already though, so I won't mention it!

    @FrostyBoy Thanks! I haven’t tested it with anything very heavy, so it might not work.

    Hey dude. So you know I build futuristic space crafts a d concepts. I'm building a mothership and when I brake with it the ship blows up. I'm guessing it doesn't work at a speed of a 100 000 miles per hour. But cool build tho I'll use it on other things

    @ThomasRoderick More or less. I have tested the system with a maximum weight of 1500 pounds successfully.

    "Really heavy"... Do you mean "Non-AGRAV"?

    @ColonelStriker Hm. What physics are you using?

    I don’t really see the purpose of it unless I want a gunship to stay in place...
    .
    .
    I want to experiment
    .
    Edit: I did and it was not good for me. After the craft accelerates again, extreme drop in FPS occurs. I’ll try now on a low part version
    .
    Edit 2: I’ll post a separate forum but yeah. It’s an issue of part count.

    @Minecraftpoweer Yep! Looks like I was too quick to say that I didn't have a use for it.

    I guess it did have a use.
