“You’re going far away, aren’t you?”
SP’s first warp-capable space freighter. I tried a slightly different style here, and I think it looks great.
Activator 8: De-activate REFLEX missile arrays
Trim: Pitch (Only useful for warping)
FireGuns: Forward Deflectors
Flight Controls (2D VTOL)
Pitch: Forward Movement
Roll: Lateral Movement
This is the best part. Ascend and descend with ease. If you want to go to space, go straight up, and then straight down… that is, if you don’t want to find yourself a few hundred (or thousand) miles from your launch site. Instructions will be in text and gif form!
1. Bring Trim Up SLOWLY.
2. Press activator 1 to warp upwards.
1. Trim Down SLOWLY
2. Press activator 2 to warp downwards
3. Put VTOL up (Airbrakes)
4. Bring Trim to center
1. Wait until you are around 100,000 feet
2. Press activator 3 to avoid slamming into the ground!
Interplanetary travel is an exhilarating process. To travel to another planet, high speed is necessary, and that high speed is accomplished with the Repulse-Based Warp Drive. When a warp jump occurs, the drive imparts a massive force on the spacecraft, and therefore sends it hurtling across the cosmos. The ship then, if its trajectory has been correctly calculated, will enter an orbit around its destination planet.
The Ethos of Settlement is an example of such a ship. In fact, it was the first heavy-duty warpship to enter the public market. A highly capable cargo ship, the Ethos’s design allowed it to be the main workhorse of humanity’s interplanetary colonization effort. Strong hull, rugged construction, and effective weaponry all factor into the spacecraft’s commercial success. A versatile warp drive finalized the design’s success. The drive has, perhaps, the smoothest jumps of any modern warpship. Standard warping reaches speeds of 90,000 mph, and elite captains can opt for faster warp jumps.
