Damn! 26,000 LY from home and I've locked my keys inside...
I figure it can be hand waved fairly easily by having some amazingly powerful function of the RemLock suits.You know...I've got lots of opinions (good and bad) on space legs, but if it does actually show I'd request one feature:
If you're planet-walking and hail your ship in - and are standing a wee bit too close...
I wanna fly like an Eagle
Not sure how that works life/death wise since we're not like clones (a la EVE Online) or immortal spirits or whatever.
I always figured that was why we don't have space legs in games like Elite, same as why we're not 'actually' in the SRV or SLF.
O RLY? I did not know that...haven't had that issue.We are in the SRV. That's why you can lose your ship while in the SRV but still survive.
EVE Online already took that idea, too (the cloning). It totally works for their game universe - futuristic tech and all - but yeah, would wreck 3300's.Your Remlok suit has escape thrusters to meet up with the ship's evacuation pod which will bring you back to your ship in an emergency and drops you out in the automated sickbay. If your ship has been destroyed, the evacuation pod doubles as your standard escape pod to the next station.
Cloning and consciousness transfers would utterly devastate the world building by its mere existence, worse than telepresence does. I'd prefer they'd just hand-wave the respawn event without an explanation over that.
Commander had that happen once and there was weeks of cool game fun until he got a replacement ship. Look up the old thread Help I Need Ship Rats.O RLY? I did not know that...haven't had that issue.
Almost did once, but I just figured that'd be a rebuy screen. Fascinating.
(Gonna load up a Sidewinder and tick an installation off tonight...)
What do you do? Just self-destruct your SRV? Seems kinda silly to allow SRV survival if you yourself can't survive?
Or can you drive to a non-hostile planetary station and get a rebuy there? (Would be nifty if you could, since ship death would probably only happen on habitable worlds anyways)
