I dunno, I'd check but I have to work in a minute.. though it doesn't seem like it would really matter that much, seeing as the Arilou have no inertia and their weapon is always aimed at the opponent.

Has anyone ever used Chmmr Avatars to pull the tiny ships of Shofixti and the like? You can really make them blaze around the battlefield that way. .)

You mean that the probe never changes speed, just direction.  Velocity is a vector..

Oh God Daniel!  You had to bring physics into this ... ok, YES yes, I should not have written velocity, because it does change velocity in changing direction.  Very well.  It changes its direction, not its magnitude (speed) ... happy?

Actually, I seem to remember being able to get the Umgah to go really fast, using the Chmmrs tractor beam to pull them.
(Usually not useful for the Umgah though)

Anyway, just a thought

Arilou can turn pretty tight circles.  It might match the fury in turning speed.

The Umgah have the dubious distinction of being the lightest ship in the game.  For some reason unknown to me, the tiniest push--a planet impact, asteroid hit, or the Chmmr's tractor beam--will send the Umgah sailing through space at unbelievable speeds.

I remember the time I played a Hypermelee back on my 486.... can't remember which ship it was, but I got stuck in an asteroid. I mean, I could NOT turn. Move. Nothing. This went on for a few seconds.

Suddenly, *BANG*! My ship was sent flying in one direction and the asteroid another. To give you an idea of how FAST I was moving, I wrapped around the screen once every second. Every asteroid I hit simply bounced off and BARELY scratched my speed. I only managed to stop because I kept thrusting in the opposite direction for about 20 seconds. My friend was kind enough to wait for me to stop flying.

Why didn't you just take pot shots at him? Given such an awesome opportunity, why waste it?? It's not every day you get to go at hyperspace speeds in melee combat after all. Smiley

Well..... we were both stunned, at first, and besides, if my friend was so kind as to wait for me to stop flying across the screen at warp speeds, who am I to betray that consideration? Wink

I know that funny asteroid boost thingie, happens very rarely though. That can happen when two ships hit in a right angle, get stuck for a short while and start flying fast...  Roll Eyes

Yes, I've definately hurtled through space like that before, after getting entwined with another ship.  With the Umgah, even though you might get hurtled through space with ease, one touch of the special button brings you to a halt, even if it's only temporary Shocked)  Don't forget the shofixti...it gets whipped around pretty good too

The fastest any ship can go as far as I am concerned is the Terminator during the Sa-Matra battle. A few good knocks with those little green thingies and it crosses the screen in less than two seconds.
