*clears throat* It's a SPACE ship. It doesn't have to have a center of gravity. :P

You'd think so, but you'd be wrong. :thumbsup:

I've crashed head-first into more than enough asteroids to know that's not the case. Realistic simulators are awesome.... until you realise you're bloody terrible at them.


I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.

Mikouen;4566575Tell ya what, give the guy a Vauxhall Vectra instead. Gets more miles per gallon, and it's center-of-gravity is balanced.

I'd be shit scared of turning on the ignition in a ship like that. Executing a three point turn would send that thing into the nearest asteroid field at such a velocity that even Super Sonic would get motion sickness.[/quote]

Use a TARDIS. =p Goes just about anywhere, and doesn't use conventional fuel!

[quote=Mikouen;4566575]Probably has a blind spot the size of Hercule Poirot's ego, too. If anyone does model it, you might wanna consider adding a secondary turret, with at least 180° coverage, on it's caudal flank. Will take two players to fly (one pilot, one gunner) but at least it won't be getting fried by any cocky bastard who manages to hop into a Delta-7.

That "cocky bastard" would be me, but most probably I'd get you with a MIM-104 Patriot :D

Now now, even mutants have standards.

Where do those standards start?

That's because a TARDIS doesn't exist... space ships do, although TIE fighters aren't sold outside of Bangkok *EPIC PHAIL*. If something has mass, it is effected by gravity and therefore there must be a centre... or something.

Plus even if a TARDIS did exist, you'd have to land in Cardiff whenever it needed to recharge. Cardiff.

"Like that CSI bollocks. CSI: Cardiff, I'd like to see that. They'd be measuring the velocity of a kebab!"

I do have to point out that not all Star Wars ships have a definable center of gravity, nor does cockpit placement always make sense. The B-Wing starfighter for instance. By all rights, that thing shouldn't fly. And the Corellian ships like the Millennium Falcon and the Outrider. What was the designer of those ships thinking? "Oh, I have a great idea boss! Let's put the cockpit off to the side! I mean, who needs to be oriented with their ship's center of gravity?" At least with the Rogue Shadow, the cockpit is pretty much in the center of the ship.

Thats why they got wookies to fly the ships, wookies don't know the laws of gravity,

So? In space placement of cockpit dosen't matter. They build it like so because it's cheaper, and/or George felt like it.

And in space, ships don't have to be symmetrical. That's all I was trying to point out. :P
