Asteroid Buster

Postby rmartz » Sun Apr 10, 2016 3:25 am

With the talk of missiles coming into game, I would like to request an added feature to the new missile or a special missile to bust asteroids.

The issue is we have lots of mixed fields that take a lot of effort to manage. This means clearing the junk so good rocks can spawn. Right now, they all just get cherry picked and left. It takes 21 seconds to mine a junk fully grown asteroid to destroy it. If we could make missiles that we could fly up, target and hit thus destroying the junk asteroid, we could then seed these fields with new spawns which would have a much higher rate of good asteroids.

Most the closer fields to Apollo that we have charted and make the data available to all are often mostly filled with junk rocks because many just cherry pick then leave. If we had missiles or even a special beam that would destroy them without having to sit for 21 seconds for every asteroid, it would be much easier to clear the junk and repopulate these fields. This would improve game play for all, but especially newer players who use these fields.

Oh hell yeah! I'm really liking this idea.

But the multiple debris may lag the heck out of the fps?

I love this idea too. Getting rid of the junk asteroids takes up a lot of time.

As I sit here with a serious expression on my face which is hiding my sly grin, I think to my self 'how can I add to this really great idea?'.

I think we need to convene a working group to select a steering committee to review the suggestion and develop it for a focus group to present the idea to Jam.

I like the way you are thinking Ram.

I'd like to claim full credit for this magnificent idea.

RAM simply stole it and basks in MY glory no longer. He can go bask under a slightly lesser glorious idea.

pew pew missiles away, junk rocks dead Captain.
