Hyperspace traveling

by Garen_Tarr » 27 Dec 2016, 16:27

Greetings im new here but i love Freeancer, esp this mod.

It takes forever to use hyperjumping, Make it max 1 minute please.
Seriously, you cant expect players to "like" a game when players are forced to look at a spastic hypertunnel with looped faulty graphics for 10 minutes... the only thing they will eventually get is a mental disorder.

The auto steering is sometimes off making you bounce around all over almost dying, creating a 10 min long battle just to survive threw your "calculated" hyperjump. please se this over also. why are you even alowed to move the ship freely in hyperspace?

Third and last: this is a great mod, but the wiki lacks so much info im having a really hard time understanding it.
What is a shield generator and what does it do?

best regards and awsome work otherwise.

Greetings!

Community Manager DarkForce here.

Sorry you're finding difficulty with Hyperspace. It can be a bit challenging for newcomers. Tunnel length is something we continue to play with. Tunnel lengths are based on their in-game distances from the point of origin to the destination, so it really depends on where you're going.

There's also no auto-steering in general. If you don't allow your hyperspace jump to calculate to 100% completion, the tunnel will have twists and turns that you have to navigate your ship through. It's meant to add a bit of challenge to travel. 100% calculation means a perfectly straight tunnel that you won't have to maneuver through. Anything less and you will need to actively guide your ship through hyperspace or risk destruction.

Hyperspace calculations in Star Wars were important, and improperly calculated jumps were often the cause of death for many unlucky captains and their crews. Our system is meant to emulate that. It does take some getting used to.

As for the wiki, it is almost entirely out of date. We're working on revamping the GameCP as well, so the wiki is not currently being maintained. If you're looking for information on anything, your best bet is to join our Discord voice and chat server and ask the devs or another player.

As for a shield generator: Assuming you mean the one installed on your ship, it provides an extra layer of defense around your hull. Each ship comes preinstalled with one, and it cannot be removed or replaced.

Hope this answers your questions! Don't hesitate to ask more and get in touch with us!

Thanks,

DF
Blame DarkForce, he wasn't clear about it.
