How about we call this new weapon a *insert_random_scifi_slang* tractor beam?

Or maybe .... Stasis Webbifier? Does it prevent warping? How about Warp Disruptor

Or Tractor beaming stasis webbing warp disrupting pushy thingy?

In Short TBSWWDPT?

Some kind of bumping modul would be cool. But i would suggsest Bombs instead.

Here is another way the mechanic could work. Earlier at the corps POS in .2 I ran into a parked Iteron IV at full speed with a Venture. The Venture nearly flipped the Iteron IV end over end. I then approached the Iteron IV at a close range of 500m and the Venture still cause the Iteron IV's engines to turn on and move several meters.

The same mechanics involved with bumping could be used in a module where the field extends around the ship at various distances and would bump the attacked ship in various magnitudes.

ah yes, the bumping ray/field.. seen this somewhere before, seems like the bad idea thread.

I'd probably only use this to drop kick corpses at the 4-4 undock in jita.

Its a bad idea, no matter what implementation. the ray would be a bit less of a headache, because you can't target things in pos shields, and the field could be used for pos bowling, which CCP says is a no-no

Get some Eve. Make it yours.

Please look up how railguns work.

EDIT: Btw, the Armor of spaceships usually is not made out of any kind of metal.


Tritanium is a metal. More than that, it's quite unstable within an atmosphere.

How about a ramming ship class ?

Basically, attaching itself to a target ship and using its thrusters to move it to a tactically more favorable position in the field, stopping it's motion, etc...

EVE is what happens when the rule of law does not apply and Darwinism is allowed to run freely.

A magnetic pulse is more likely to damage electronics than to do any appreciable damage to the armor of a ship, a pulse that strong would be something very special Lol

Things are only impossible until they are not.

Magnetic fields drop as an inverse square of distance. More likely would be an electromagnetic lance that interacts with the target's shields and armour energy fields to push/pull as required. I doubt magnetics would work against the ship itself as most materials would likely be very light non ferrous alloys , ceramics, and plastics.

Oh, and rail guns aren't magnetic weapons as such, they are high amp elctromagnetic weapons. An enormous charge passes across the ammo (usually saboted) which induces a velocity on the ammo slug via the three-finger rule in physics (can't remember the proper name). These weapons exist now and are under test for naval applications

I like what this guy says.Electromagnetic lance .Dryson has many good ideas which could work.

And no this field couln't bump poses but only ships directly.

Maybe this weapon could work like the big ship of star trek into darkness which could bring closer smaller ships or push away ships.Something like that.

Yes something like that.The idea is to have new weapons and not make eve more complex.


No. They use magnetic fields to shoot solid projectiles.

Wut? That is not a railgun by any definition. A rail gun is called that because it has rails. If it were shooting plasma, why would it need rails? You would only need a high-intensity magnetic field, and that does not require rails, only magnets and perhaps a wave-guide.

What you describe sounds more like a blaster. Or an Ion Implant tool for making microchips.

Anyway I like this game and some suggestions might work and make it better.Thank you all.
