I have always wanted to remote hyperjump a star destroyer into a major City. I was thinking the Fel capital and the Jedi temple. Now that I have an AIS framework, all of that is possible with relative ease. Thoughts? :3
Dredge is in love now... I'd totally do this. Unfortunately it would be a huge risk.
Mainly because I know the Jedi Admins wouldn't appreciate if we did that to their temple. The only way we could do this is if we did it on a smaller scale. Like what if we were in a fleet battle and, when or if we had to leave/retreat, we could jump to light speed and destroy one of their ships, allowing everyone else to escape.
They don't have to appreciate it. Who the hell appreciates being killed? xD
They just have to deal with it. They are faction admins, their power ends outside of their forum, lol. Its -our- ship... well, you know what I mean, LOL.
Tell you what, I won't crash it, I'll just derelict it and rig its core to blow while it floats over the city. :3
Honestly what she is proposing is different from what I would do which is crash the ships directly into important buildings of the republic, but it is [no offence ayna] it is also a bit out there since I don't see us being able to make jumps like that, Hypergates/Star Gates are disallowed here so the only other way would be to enter atmosphere and then do a quick hyper jump to try and land the ship where you need it.
although I am no expert pilot, but this is only from my opinion. Not meant to upset anyone..
My key problem with it is, from a scientific standpoint IC, it would destroy the planet. Its one thing when one explodes above the planet, or a large chunk of the ship loses all power and falls toward the planet. But your suggesting, sending millions of tons of metal at hyperspace jump into a planet. That in scientific terms is actually referred as a global killer.
The ship drops out of hyperspace near a gravity well because of safeties in the hyperdrive. You would have to remove the safties to use hyperdrive in a gravity well. The reason no one does it is because the stress from a hyperjump combined with even low gravity would rip the ship apart.
@[member="Kalordo Lah"] you do realize we're talking about a specialized frigate piloted remotely by an AI made for this kind of networking, right? Even if it rips apart, where do you think all of that matter and the warhead onboard is going to go?
Anyways, the ship I have ready for this is perfectly capable of jumping outside of the planet's sphere and entering undetected. It is also capable of covering a 5,000km space with sensor readings. Unless they have littered the entire outer atmosphere with stealth mines and have a Hubble telescope pointed straight for it, we're getting in just fine.
I play war by war's rules, but I'm not a jerk. I'm going to notify them of the intentions once everything is underway. Then we'll make the thread, and they'll have ample time and warning to try and minimize the damage to the best of their abilities. They'll probably want to hack/slice the ship's navigation, so we'll just have to make sure the warhead is on a timed detonation or something along those lines.
