Thats right, ships in EVE do NOT fly.

So when you say "fly safe" or alike most likely you are DUMB

Cause:


Irregular Verb - To Fly

Meaning:

To move through the air
To travel by aeroplane




THERE IS NO AIR IN SPACE KIDS


Ships in EVE do NOT fly, .. they just simply move through propulsion forces.



Now a little boost on your nightmares:

SHIPS IN EVE DONT FLY
SHIPS IN EVE DONT FLY
SHIPS IN EVE DONT FLY
SHIPS IN EVE DONT FLY
SHIPS IN EVE DONT FLY
SHIPS IN EVE DONT FLY
SHIPS IN EVE DONT FLY

There must be air in EVE Universe space - because we can hear explosions - sounds. So since there is sound in space, that means there is a medium we are traveling through and thus we are flying. P

Ponies!  We need more ponies!

source on that terrible definition? There's about 6-7 valid definitions not covered.

Or maybe EVE is just a computer simulation and we are controlled by some other guys at computer.

The sounds you hear are only a simulation of what could possibly be heard out of the event.
Your ships computer simulates the sounds heard in your pod.

Yeah....yeah....and I suppose our ships magically have simulated drag as well...no inertia.

The inertia is towards a ships own weight, not towards air.

Like zippers. =)

And yeah, if we can hear sounds like explosions, there must be some medium we're flying through. Perhaps CCP accepts the long-debunked theory of aether.

Of course Eve ships don't fly.

This is a fictional fluid universe space submarine game.

Although, the CDs that Eve came on for a bit...those did fly! Those discs had all the ships on them..so technically..ALL SHIPS IN EVE CAN FLY.

Since the cessation of their usefulness is imminent, may I appropriate your belongings?

All tis time I thought they were referencing zippers...

On another note, you suck at researching definitions.

It sounds better than "Drift safe" or "impel safe", which might be more appropriate terms.

I will restore your faith in GD my friend. A quick google came up with the necessary research for definitions.

The inertia is towards a ships own weight, not towards air.


Mass is how large something is. Weight is relative to the level of gravitation forces applied to the mass.

Inertia determines how much energy it takes to get this mass moving or to reverse its motion.
