Ship that rewinds?
« on: May 15, 2022, 08:11:28 AM »

I'm trying to remember the name of a unique modded ship. Might've been from HMI or Talhan. It had an ability that, when first used, "saved" its position on the battlefield, flux levels, and armor. When the ability was used again, the ship would instantaneously rewind back to that spot with the flux and armor levels it had at that point in time. It was basically an infinite armor-regenerating ship.

Why would you want something so broken? At this point you might as well be honest and straight-up cheat.

No it's not, it's a sloppy mechanic that oft-violates the laws of causality.

You're just no fun. The laws are causality are MADE to be violated!!

If you treat playing a game "fair" as a badge of honor you need to go outside honestly, it's just a funny spaceship simulation game not a rite of passage of life.

The laws of causaility in the Persean sector are laws as in the Hegemony will prosecute you if you don't stop violating them.

It's actually true.

https://starsector.fandom.com/wiki/Temporal_Shell

https://starsector.fandom.com/wiki/Scarab

"The Scarab is a rare, experimental hull developed by the Tri-Tachyon corporation. Only a limited run of prototypes has been produced.

Gross causality violating technology was banned by the Domain, and this ban is now upheld by Hegemony doctrine - with Luddic support. Nonetheless, it is the handful of fringe-examples of this technology which form the foundation for instellar human civilization from the old Gate system (depending on one's theory of its operation) to common FTL hyperspace travel and communication. Tri-Tachyon has always pushed the bleeding edge of these technologies - and of the law - by spearheading development of phase technology. The Scarab's uniquely hull-integrated prototype "Temporal Shell" system is no exception.

So it is not so much that the Scarab manipulates time as it avoids the normal rate of consequence of the local frame of reference. The effect, as upsetting to Luddic theologians as it is to laymen, is to seemingly slow time for the outside world. Of course one must avoid stating it thus in earshot of the applied temporal physicists who deal in such miracles to avoid a tedious correction of terminology. "
