reverse thrust lock

Post by Evil Juice »

It happened twice, but i didn't dump the AI or whatever:
I'm in a dogfight, i collide with a ship apparently better or equally shielded than mine, i bounce off at ludicrous speeds and the exhaust plumes point in the general direction opposed to that towards which i'm travelling (because of the bounce), the only way to restore control and vector is to jump (J key)in a direction for about 30 seconds otherwise i'm completely helploess and travelling backwards at near-to-relativistic speed, fuel injecting will not work in order to restore vector and speed. Is this a feature or a bug?

Sounds like some of the collision code is applying a rather overenthusiastic impulse to your ship. Nothing AI-related. Definitely Giles territory.
