Hello everybody,

While i was cruising with that last free c-store ship, I got this great idea,

How about a console or device that can give your ship a barrel roll or a back flip move?
So instead of colliding with another ship, you barrel roll around it, or if you are being followed and you can't shake him ,you do a backflip. I don't know if it's possible with the game mechanics?

I understand that this is not something for all classes, but more for escorts and other small ships like shuttles or so?

What do you guys think?

the game runs on a 2d map so such stunts cant be done. other then a animation.

it's okay if it's an animation, you just do a 360, or a strafe move with your ship. can also be used for a very sharp corner.

Well, it COULD be done. It's not that the game is restricted by a 2d map, it just chooses to use a mostly 2d movement system. The new lockbox ship actually has a power that flips it 180 degrees, and works on all escorts. I'm not really sure if this is mostly a visual animation, or if the power executes your ship's movement in a predetermined manner. So it might be possible to have something like barrel rolls, but it could always have more problems that aren't obvious.

I'm pretty sure one of the new Hirogen lockbox consoles lets escorts do this.

This improved form of well-known technology is capable of temporarily withstanding extreme pressure and forces exerted during maneuvers that would otherwise be impossible in most full-size starships. Powering up this Field allows the ship to almost instantly perform a 180-degree flip maneuver, turning completely around in only a matter of seconds.

that's a turn, not a barrel roll or backflip

...because a flat 180 to facing backwards doesn't bring the front cannons to bear but a vertical 180 to facing backwards does?
