PostSubject: Space Torpedos!   Tue May 08, 2012 10:57 am

I think it would be cool to have torpedos as spaceship weapons.
You might think: "Why Torpedos? We already got missiles!"
You´re right, but I am thinking of some Differences:
1st: Torpedos can only be fired in space.
2nd: Torpedo launchers are special weapons.
3rd: All Torpedos are homing.
And last but not least: POWER!!!
Torpedos would be very powerful. Powerful enough to even destroy an unshielded Battlecruiser. (well, at least the stronger Variants)
So you just have to destroy the enemy shields and then... BOOM!!!
My Ideas for different Types of torpedos: (from least to most powerful)
-Drill Torpedo (when hitting the target it drills straight inside for 100 Blocks, then explodes like a thematic missile)
-Thermonuklear Torpedo (look at Wikipedia for function principe; 1,000-3,000 Blocks rlast radius (varying Quality of explosive charge);2000-6000 vehicle demage)
-Tracker Torpedo (no demage, but forces all homing warheads nearby (like 10,000 blocks) to go for the place the tracker hit)
-Fusion Torpedo (like Thermonuke, but uses heavier elements for fusion; 6,000 Blocks blast radius; 20,000 vehicle demage)
-[Proton Torpedo (if the amtimatter discussion gets a pro as final result; ~1.000.000 B. blast radius; ~2.000.000 vehicle demage)]
-Quantum Torpedo (ZPM as warhead; ~3.000.000 B. blast radius; ~5.000.000 vehicle demage)

Btw: if you´re now thinking "OMG my shiels are never gonna take this!" I would add the ability to upgrade shields at higher tech.

Multi-million block blast radius? My word. You may be severely overestimating both the size of these ships and a server's ability to handle stuff like that. These are good ideas, but they may need to be toned down by an order of magnitude.

I'm scared. The biggest ship on these forums is not even over 45,000 blocks long. (the 43,000 block long ship is stupid anyways.)

The planets are 44,000 blocks long as far as I remember ... Why won't we simply build an engine in a planet and call it "death star " Smile .

I meant blast radius through air!
Of course Stuff like Steel totally shrink that.

Okay...
So how about leaving the demage as it is and changing the radius as the following:
Drill Torpedo:(actually drill lenght) 50 (also I forgot to say: It should also explode automaticly when drilling out of the ship again.
Thermonuklear Torpedo: 800-1500
Fusion Torpedo: 2000
[Proton Torpedo: 2500]
Quantum Torpedo: 3000

You're kiddin ... The biggest ship ever planned was 1000m and the biggest one I made is only 400m . If you make a blast radius of 100 it's already a big torpedo ...

You do know that a nuclear missile already has a blast radius of 500 and the thematic missile got 100?

So just think about a 3600 block ship and say the torpedo hits the front while the core is in the back.

Go blast your own ship then.


We do not torpedoes. We have missiles, which are enough. It's like having guns, then having blasters. Completely unnecessary.

missiles better fit smaller craft like fighters and AA missiles on the ships. Torpedoes are heavier stuff that bombers and capships carry to fight capships.

I tried to explain this before an week any explosive weapon has no effect if it explodes outside the ship so it wont destroy anything except an unshielded battlecruiser
and if yoou have some anti-missile/torpedo lasers you cant be bothered with such stuff

OK. You´re the boss.
BUT AT LEAST ADD A ZPM-WARHEAD MISSILE!!!
I mean...
With human society as it is, the Military would put a ZPM into a warhead even before trying to get electricity out of them.

Idiot, i tryed borg cube once, and guess what happened? i got all of the peoples dreadnoughts firing their las0rs, because it was too square. if you try borg cubeing, they won't need missiles, because a dreadnought is going to swallow you in it's las0r and then fire.
