× Hello there,

Before you post a bug report or a feature or help request, please think about these things first:

This forum is for questions about problems with the mod, feature requests for future work and reporting bugs with the current build. Please do not post anything about Stargate in general or such.

Search before posting. There might be another topic written by someone with the same problem as you have that resolved the issue.

Do not hijack someone else's topic with irrelevant questions of your own.

Please try to test bugs more than once; a bug may only happen one time and thus needs not be resolved after for example restarting the game and trying again.

When reporting a bug or asking for help, please supply us with as much relevant information as possible. State what the problem is, when it occured, if you changed something yourself just before the problem occured and so on.

Last but not least, remember to be polite!

The general bugs of the universe.

Due to its longly shape it appears very aerodynamic, in this way it's very maneuverabele.

-Okey, spot the wrong thing. No air in the space, dudes. If you wanna make a ship shape, you ask about its moment of inertia ( de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tr%C3%A4gheitsmoment ). Big, loooong ships are nice to look at but are next to impossible to turn around without breaking them in half. To turn them around you need a pair of side engines on the rear and the front so the axis of rotation goes through the center of the ship. You put side engines on the rear alone, ship breaks in half if you try to turn around too fast. Arrowhead shape and round shapes (Acclamator or star destroyer from star wars are good examples of where you can actually get away with having side engines only on the rear, side engines mean engines that when engaged start turning your ship.) are better for that stuff. If you want to play with your models in any big way (especially the low tech races), keep this in mind. Inertial dampening shields mentioned in SG work on the inside of a ship, working them on the outside of a ship with this kind of tricks is gonna kill your ZPM in one crazy turnaround. Put some side engines on the front and the rear of a ship and use them in sync to turn your ship and it conserves energy while allowing you to turn around faster and with less drifting. And it will be a cool little detail to be proud about when presenting the mod anywhere.

Hey Boriss,

I have no clue what this thread is about, but I agree about the realilsm aspects you mention.
We just copy the thruster settings from the series, not our fault XD

But I will concider that for the Ship-model-designs of my own, thank you

Here I can share tips and tricks for you if you want to make your own models a bit more realistic. Should also help with texts and descriptions. It is in the bug sections as I will be mostly commenting on texts that make little sense.
