Is there anyway to code it in as an ability for a frigate/cruiser or bigger ship (besides a SSD for obvious reasons) to crash into another ship and take maybe half of its health or shields out, or maybe even both? Maybe by having it act as the HVG projectile towards an object? Does anybody have any ideas?

Interesting idea! :D Maybe invisible projectile, like laser, with max flight range=ship's collision and going from the center of the ship will be good? But it will damage only enemies ships. I don't know how to make your ships to do the same...

wow you posted this every where did you

answered on both AB and eeaw so here will not make a difference will it

there maybe a way, if you code in a HP and projectile....

by this i mean make a projectile that has a range of 0 and a hefty attack power, code it to a HP on the front of a unit with a very little attack arc, and then have the attack trigger by a special ability - now this is only a theory

there may also be other ways to do this also

Yeah i posted it everywhere so i could maybe hopefully get an answer or ideas on how to do it lol cause i was thinking if you could use it as a way for frigates to get one last strike in it would be BA. Kind of like the Consortium's capital ships self destruct ability but crash into other ships instead of just blowing up near them. If someone could help me find a way to get it to do this it would be pretty cool to tell other ppl how to do it and there might even be a way for fighters to do it to...eventually.

To be more specific than what I've seen, yes, it is possible to create the illusion of ships colliding. I don't actually know how it's done but there is at least one mod that features a friendly-fire LUA script, so you might want to start by trying to make/obtain that. Then you should go with the above ideas and make an invisible projectile fire from a hardpoint at the front of the ship, add the LUA script to that and see how it goes. Mind you I don't actually remember what mod it's from and without access to my EaW computer(which currently is as such)I can't check. > < But someone made bombardments and bombing runs do damage to friendly units if not the vast majority of all projectiles.

Realistic Warfare Mod has friendly-fire enabled orbital bombardment for all factions

I was hoping i wasn't the only one interested in this :D its good to see there's a lot of people interested in this as well. Reason i started thinking about this was cause when your frigate loses all its weapons and has only its shield generator and engines...well there's only one way to go. I am hoping someone with some expertise on LUA files might be able to help cause i only know how to do XML files and i don't really have time to learn how LUA files work at the time considering i got school and all the stuff that's associated with school (HW, stress, naps, energy drinks, etc. etc.) i have also posted this question on these 2 websites in hope of getting an answer faster - http://alphabluemodding.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=845&st=0&gopid=4240entry4240 and http://everythingeaw.com/showthread.php?t=4204
