The Turrets are CLEARLY in a Superposition. They arent arent, they arent are, they arent arent or are at the same are. CLEARLY.


I see it now. We can not fight the destiny of EVE, unless it is our destiny to fight destiny, in which case we can not not fight destiny unless we choose to fight that by not fighting it.

What about the new laser turrets with recoil? It does make you wonder about the schooling of Eve devs.

Just for the people who don't understand how a rail gun works (in theory):

Its very simular to how a monorail train works (electromagnetic rails). Magnets are turned on and off rapidly causing the train with opposite-poled magnets on it, to accelertae do to the desire of the two magnets to repel each other. The rail gun does the same thing by using magnets to propel (or rather repell) its ammo out of the barrel.

So, now that the physics have been described, has anyone seen a momorial have recoil? I thought not.




You mean a Maglev train, A monorail can be any train that uses a single rail. the most famous example in the world being the Disney World Monorail which is traction driven on a concrete beam.

A Maglev is like what they have to some airport in China that goes something crazy like 300mph.

Railguns, blasters, LASERs don't have recoil. We even have recoiless projectile guns right now.
You could also argue, that lasers don't have visible beams in space. That there is no sound in space, and no maximum speed in space. And no, going faster in space has nothing to do with your capability to control the ship at that speed.
Those are all gameplay aspects. They are added to make the game more fun, not more realistic.

So... about recoil:

The point is. RECOIL ANIMATIONS LOOK BETTER THAN LACK THEREOF.

Yeah, thats all.

All of the mentioned do have recoil.

avoiding recoil is one of the major points with these thingys, you know.


They could be also using some special kind of explosive matter to make electromagnetism propelled shells more effective, thus the recoil...

Having made a railgun IRL, I can't tell you they do, in fact, have recoil. Impressive recoil TBH.

Edit: And if you happen to wire your current backwards, they have impressive... um... opposite of recoil... discoil maybe? uncoil?

Lets just call it forward impulse


You shot the gun instead of the projectile? Laughing

Art team too busy making Dust and WoD. Can't be arsed with silly things like RAILGUNS.

They do have recoil. Conservation of energy, and all that...

And, railguns work by turning on magnets at just the right timing. Why couldnt railguns in the future move their casing in order to minimize the actual gun size, but still allowing for acceleration as if the rail was twice as long?

And as for lasers, why couldnt they need to 'compress' the gas contained in them to improve their energy output? Who knows.

Why the **** does my ship stop when i turn the engines off? And why does my ship auto-level itself... its a ****ing videogame

Oooooh Aaaaah

Also, in space, loud noises like explosions and turret fire are EXTRA LOUD because there is no air to get in the way of the sound.




The Pod simulates sound in order to provide a more natural enviroment.
Help Pilots to get a better sense of space and directions, and has been explained that way in a Chronicle if I remember right.
