Yeah a ship full of combustible material really needs that many torpedos to kill ..... I am sure Tankers going around Somalia feel a lot safer knowing that nothing can hurt them ;) I hope CIG does something to container damage states so they actually blow up when they carry something combustible. Call me a sucker for realism but a ship carrying rocket fuel or munitions should probably blow up when a torpedo hits one of the containers :lol:

As I recall the Starfarer will be mainly harvesting hydrogen. Hydrogen won't do anything without oxygen. So in the vacuum of space it wouldn't do anything at all, but in an oxygen atmosphere you would get a massive explosion. :D

And what do you think will happen when a hydrogen container on a starfarer ruptures and the hydrogen mixes with the oxygen from the ruptured hull? Usually any ship that carries humans is pressurized with breathable gas that contains oxygen and a torp will most likely also cause an oxygen leak in the hull somewhere ;)

On a side note : wtf would a ship only need hydrogen for fuel? AFAIK usually rocket engines use a mix of hydrogen gas and oxygen to work and you can't use only hydrogen for propulsion yet Chris only talks about hydrogen ...

I fear any trace oxygen leaking from a ruptured hull would not have the required ratio for the hydrogen to combust in a vacuum. So unless the hydrogen is already mixed with oxygen inside the storage tanks it would simply leak out into space with no cool explosions at all :(

As to only needing hydrogen for fuel I have no clue what the devs were smoking to be honest as that part never made much sense to me as we'd still be missing an oxidizer.

Then again I'm betting CIG will just ignore science and go all Hollywood with Starfarers blowing up in spectacular explosions! :P

      Hi all,  Looking to sell my account and ARMADA package with LTI.  Will be via paypal of course and will use escrow.com if you are concerned if you cover costs.
      Also includes a token for a buyback of a JUMP 890 with LTI.
      Looking to move this along.  
      Thanks,
      T.

      In the wee hours of the morning, myself and @Norem decided we'd have a bit of fun pushing the limits of the PTU 2.6.0k.
      After hours of trying to fit a Merlin into a Caterpillar with varying degrees of explosive failure, Norem decided to grab a Starfarer and attempt to carry the intrepid little Merlin to places never traversed by its kind and do battle with villainous pirates, for science!
      Credit to @Norem for staying patient and willing to go along with this crazy little venture.
