Strap a (Magneto-Plasma) Rocket to your butt...

I wanted to see how fast I could get a Magneto-Plasma Ship to go, this one uses 0.7 fuel and 200% boost. Good for when you gotta go fast.

I've stocked AMMs slower than that.

Wait... the upper limit for ship speed of 100kkm/s is removed in C#? Did Steve mentioned it somewhere or it is a bug?

That is.... Holy Crap, man. The evasion it must have against missiles!
"Boop!" goes the thermonuclear missile salvo

The maximum speed in Aurora hasn't changed.  It has always been 270k km/s, which is 0.9c.

An equal tech ASM has a 100% CTH against that.  My missiles' CTH gets rounded down to zero.  :(

If not mistaken, the mass increase at 0.9c is +110%.

The Lorentz boost at 0. 9c is actually a factor of 2. 3, so even more than that!

Hmm, then I get the wrong impression from somewhere. Although the missile's max speed was 299000km/s in VB6, now it is reduced to 270000km/s

I just double checked and you are correct.  It was 299k in VB, which is 0.997c.  The 100k km/s you might have been thinking of is the 4x BFC maximum speed rating.

On the other hand ships in Aurora do not actually have a velocity above what it started with before turning on the Tran-Newtonian drive. There are no physical velocity change from our worlds perception, the ship use the Eather to physically shift from place to place.

So, ships rather teleport or bend space and time to move from one physical location to the next.

The only thing that matter for a ship moving in Aurora is volume and not mass.
