a new form of damage that can be used in the eve world and there are two types active and passive corrosion.

both forms are loaded into a special high slot launcher that functions similar to missile launchers.

active corrosion takes the form of tiny nanite bundles that actively attack the ship and its systems , nanites will also actively absorb shield energy. active corrosion requires a decent amount of energy to prepare and fire but gets results fast

the passive form comes in the shape of special molecular acids , the acids break down the hull and armor of a ship as well as shorts out shields due to its natural conductivity. passive corrosion takes time to take effect, it takes little to no power grid and processing as its akin to throwing a water balloon, albeit filed with acid that will melt your face off.


each shot from a corrosion weapon deals relativity little damage compared to its counter parts , there main benefit is that after a few volleys the resistances on the target will be reduced to the point where higher damage is attainable. full blow washing of a can reduce its resistances down to zero

but at this point you wonder , is this going to be a weapon of mas destruction, being able to reduce any ships tanks to nothing . but there is a way to fix this, like a virus invading the human body its job is to do as much damage as possible before it gets destroyed by the immune system, and for the ship the immune system are its self repair systems, after every cycle of a repair system around 5% of the corrosion damage is burned of or expelled from the ship .

lastly there is no anti corrosion armor that can be used to Strengthen a ship against a corrosion attack , you need simply add more resistance modules to lessen the effect.

I think it should be an AoE Cone attack (like a fire hose), that can spray entire fleets (up to a range of 100km with a 30 degree angle on the cone). And then at an exponential rate starts to eats it's way through the hull (lets say it would disable a BS in 3 weeks). To counter it you go into a new first person shooter type module, but instead of a gun you have an angle grinder and a paint sprayer filled with rust inhibitor. You must grind off any rust present and then protect your ship with the inhibitor.

I think there should be more fireballs too. Games with fireballs are always awesome (ie Tekken, Street Fighter, City Of Heroes, etc etc).

Maybe you could "Poison" the pilot too...

It will have a lack in 5 skills randomly, then suffer a penalty to put implants...

A 3 month in a bacta tank could be used to heal this ... lol

Reading this makes me wonder how much (or little) do people understand of the world around them. Can you do me a favor and research corrosion in space? Please? Then rehash your idea.

makes me wonder just how much plp read my ideas or do they just like to burn all they see

any ways i called it Corrosion as its akin to what it does, it breaks down the resistances of a target ship allowing more damage to be applied. granted corrosion may not have been he best idea but i don't know of a name for the poison equivalent for metal systems.

Then do some research of how items interact in space. I didn't say that the idea wasn't interesting, just that you needed to understand how things really worked and to do research before just posting away in what sounds like a random fashion.

Let's quote some wikipedia here, shall we?

Duh, well if that isn't exactly what the OP was talking about... I guess you were thinking about rusting, but that is just one form of corrosion and certainly not the only one. Apparently there's also galvanic corrosion, microbial corrosion, high temperature corrosion, ...

Of course, the sisters of mercy had the best corrosion...

Typical corrosion, rust, requires oxygen. Galvanic requires an electrolyte, which when in space isn't going to adhere to the metal like it would in our atmosphere (think astronauts trying to drink liquid water, it globs to itself and not another surface). Microbial relies on bacteria, which won't survive in space. High temperature corrosion requires oxygen to oxidize the metal after its protective layer of oxidation is ripped off from being exposed to high temperature. Like I said, do some research and if you actually read the wiki article instead of just skimming it looking for what you needed then you would have known.

Pardon my physics, but isn't that EM damage? And by the way, some one should inform CCP that 1 AU is 150 Mm.

Corrosion is already an ingame feature. All you have to do is fly Minmatar.

Since when was Electromagnetic energy the same as a chemical reaction?

Its easy to get all types of corrosions working in space.

this is not the greatest idea i must say, but maybe you could change it to some sort of EWAR that drains shields, cause in contracts lookup, there is an item in the list that refers to sapping shields. though this may be another fluke from CCP like salvager drone and DED skills in the SHOW ALL SKILLS in character sheet lol. Interesting idea to say the least, but i think acid weapons should stay in EARTH 2160 Laughing

Are you the guy who proposed a "mutugen attack" a while back that would bypass all shield and defenses, kill the pilot, leave the ship for takeover, and basically pwn ships with little to no effort?


'cause this sounds a lot like that. Rolling Eyes

Edit: Nope, wasn't you.

You could make the corrosion attack an acid spray that simply eats through the hull gradually. The damage would take place over some period of time, as opposed to being instantly applied.

Then you could have FCs yelling at people over voice chat, "MORE DOTS!"

OP is not talking about space.

He's talking about a game. A game called EVE who's game mechanics are only loosely based on reality.

You want space, go to NASA and argue with them about your real space physics Rolling Eyes
