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

Thousands of years from now they'll probably have solved that stuff, you know.

Will you just sod off?
This complaining and whining has just gone too far now. Jumping on CCP's back with every little concern, gripe, foible and rant is just pathetic. They've given us the answer we wanted to hear, so stop being *******s and let them do their jobs.

More to the point, recoil looks cool.

There is recoil on railguns.

Every action has an opposed and equal reaction.

get over it

There are far more pressing concernt in EVE right now

If the art department needs to do anything, its get the missile turrets completed and then start re-skinning all the ships like they did for the Scorpion and the Maller.

No. No kind of gun can be truly recoil less. Newton's third law, the conservation of momentum, guarantees this. Even a laser has some recoil, since photons have momentum. In the rail gun, the momentum given to the projectile must be matched by the momentum given to the "stationary" part of the gun. If the gun is firmly anchored, this momentum is given to the entire mass of the planet and you will not see much recoil. But the force on the gun during the launch will be quite high, equal to the force on the projectile.


got this from google search

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.

I think the main problem here, is that you actually found time to look carefully at the models in the first place. Generally I find myself max zoomed out, glancing at local and overview same time, while focusing on TS/Skype/Vent, checking scanner every few seconds, balancing the tactical overlay while monitoring several ingame chatchannels, and trying to micromanage my drones, modules, and overheat.

I also try to breath now and then, even tho previous sentence did a horrible job at reflecting that. Also, there's recoils on laz0rs nowadays too. Supposedly.

Even if you were right....out of everything wrong in the game, this is what you choose to complain about? In any case, they already said these things would have noticeable recoil in the dev blog. This isn't really news...

Quote:
The traditional equations predict that the recoil force acts on the breech of the railgun. Another school of thought invokes Ampère's force law and asserts that it acts along the length of the rails (which is their strongest axis).

You are all wrong.

Do you meant that they have recoil and shouldn't, or that they should have recoil and don't.

With which things, exactly? With turrets? With railguns?

+1 Internets for you sir.

I'm just thankfull that turrets retract themselves for the extra aerodynamics.

Strictly speaking, it exerts it, but yeah. Brainfart on my end.

Mein Got! How can you complain about the sodding turret anmations of railguns? It's like buying a kilo of rancid meat and complaining about the packaging.

Quote:
The energy of a system that emits a photon is decreased by the energy E of the photon as measured in the rest frame of the emitting system, which may result in a reduction in mass in the amount E / c2. Similarly, the mass of a system that absorbs a photon is increased by a corresponding amount. As an application, the energy balance of nuclear reactions involving photons is commonly written in terms of the masses of the nuclei involved, and terms of the form E / c2 for the gamma photons (and for other relevant energies, such as the recoil energy of nuclei).

Hey! Without the proper spaceodynamic properties, you know that some day, you'll lose space-grip and swerve off into a sun.

ok, ok stop right there. There is no hint of RL physics / mechanics in eve. So these discussions are pointless.

Well, it does sort of make sense from an Aristotelian POV.
