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.
