This is a lovely mod, been playing around with it for a few days. The models are great, I like evillejedi's work. Being the purist I am, I've modded quite a few ships to have 'canonical' acceleration. And as you can imagine, the results are spectacular, and amusing
Take the ISD-II for example, with its acceleration of 2300G, I changed the corrective thruster value to about 22500, giving that same acceleration in-game in m/s. Though it may look and sound ridiculous, this is small change compared to the actual power output of the ship (9e24w.) Assuming an ISD is about 64,000,000 metric tons at a density of 1.2 tons per m3
, it would take 1.6e19w to accelerate to 22.5km/s for a second. So that's full forward acceleration, requiring only 0.0017% of the ship's full power. That said, there is a good theory that the ship's thrusters are pushing on hyperspace all the time, somehow, which might also explain how they're able to stop so abruptly. Or perhaps repulsor technology is factoring in somewhere (I suspect it is, why else wouldn't there be manoeuvring thrusters on SW ships.) Whatever the case, I suspect that they operate this way because they don't want to have to hold loads of rocket fuel, or it's inefficient in comparison. Obviously some is used, but that is probably just to aid in forward propulsion, which is the main mode of SW ships. So that might significantly increase the energy requirements of such movement (tapping into hyperspace probably requires lots of power, otherwise the engines wouldn't inhabit such enormous spaces in starships) thus explaining the very low power draw.
Anyway, long story short (that was a bit of a tangent) I'm having a fun time boosting the accel. to canonical levels on most, possibly all, ships. It's kind of amusing sitting a TIE on the ground and then shooting off into space in a matter of seconds lol.
Oh yeah, is anyone thinking of adding any other ships? I'd love to see some of the newer Byss fleet
ships, the ones that Fractalsponge has designed, like the Assertor, Fulgor, Secutor, Bellator, new Allegiance model, and so on.
