Folding in the Robotech MMO.

Every good science fiction has a good way of having ships "jump" across galaxy and/or systems so you can get to places faster or more efficiently.

Star Trek has Warp, Star Wars has Hyperspeed, and others have many other variations, but Robotech has it's own pinnacle version called "Folding".

Will the MMO have Folding, at this moment....YES!

From Kamujin, the (main) programmer.

Before I got "Linux fever", I was working on folding. The plan is for ships from the horizont and larger to be fold capable.

For testing, I will probably allow all ships to fold.

There has yet to be any real discussion on how it will be implemented.

Folding as in like what they do in Dune?

 

Or are they just mistakenly using the same term...?

If I recall, space folding (the moving of space and time around the ship rather then the ship move through it) in Robotech was considered somewhat dangerous and more importantly, used large amounts of fuel (protoculture)

Also, I may be wrong it's been a very long time, smaller ships like the Horizont did not have fold engines. In fact many ships in Robotech did not have space fold generators. It was common for the smaller ships to cluster around the larger ships with the drive as it created a large field around the ship and would move anything within the field. (Macross island for example)

Giving space fold to all types of ships seems to go against how things worked in Robotech.

In Macross it was dfferent, spacefolding was more common, more reliable and even some fighters had fold generators.

Well Torak you are correct smaller ships do not have Fold, and so some of the ships will be "re-modeled" to have fold engines. Also in the testing phase everything will be able to fold, but I am not sure how the end-content will work out really.
