    If he does, then he does so secretly, in his secret base under a volcano, while stroking his cat, in secret, and secretly thinking about putting some missiles on Starship (in the secret compartment).

    Don't ask if Elon Musk approves of this game, ask if this game approves of Elon Musk.

    CoaDE is now on sale and costs a potato.

    Excuses no longer exists.
    Anyone who hasn't played it and tries to opine on any Sci-Fi/space related subject (game or otherwise) shall be laughed out of the respective thread.

    Are you a man enough to build giant phallic rocketships and kill other rocketships with them in the ultimate clash of space dongs?

    You will certainly eat a lot of nuke tipped space dongs in it before you git gud.
    :martini:
    Appropriately named "Orbital Fallout" mission has enemy sling salvoes of 50x 2kt yield nukes at your still work in progress ship that is unfueled and immobile, stocked with only fraction of ammo and has completely unprotected station to defend.
    :troll:
    On an upside you get to commit warcrimes.

    How effective are those micromissiles? Not much boom from what I see but surprisingly lot of dV.

    Boom is pretty much inconsequential, just a way to spread damage around if they happen to end up inside enemy hull, they are meant as pure KKVs anyway. Maybe I'll convert them to bipropellant where both propellants are explosive monoprops so that any unspent propellant contributes.

    Anyway, they can be quite effective when launched in swarms. Some caveats:
    • Swarms are very taxing for CPU
    • They still have very limited delta-v so they need some high velocity delivery method.
    • They are fragile, you can't really armour something this tiny.
    • You pay severe small missile mass tax - guidance hardware masses about as much as propellant.

    One thing pretty much every (other) game or show gets hilariously wrong about spaceships, and especially space warships:
    Waste heat and heat radiators.
    :obviously:

    BTW, not COADE, but on topic of heat - Nertea is working on a more sensibile heat system for KSP. Should make thermal management in that game more sensible.

    a very [​IMG] codexian thing to say

    That's a pearl of gaming wisdom that should be true about way more games.
