It is completely sick. Stupidly, stupidly sick. Crosses a 15x15 galaxy in less than a second.

Didn't see that invisible wormhole entrance did you?

It does a pretty good simulation of a wormhole, actually. I think 200 mill would be enough. :-)

Interestingly, I couldn't get it to work in the components file. I tried increasing speed of the Gerax hyperdrive to 99000, but the game crashes, starting at a speed somewhere between 50000 and 99000 (haven't yet worked out the exact point).

But if you change one of the research improvements to the Gerax hyperdrive in the research file, you can go up to at least 100 million; I didn't find the upper limit.

I don't doubt that you did it......but...but...WHY?

Or are you just testing the limits?

It was partly to test the limits (which I haven't yet found), but also relates to what Ehsumrell1 said about wormholes. I quite like the idea of having an end game technology which provides instant (i.e. like a wormhole) travel anywhere. I accept the result might well be game-breaking, but I don't think that's a foregone conclusion.

And lastly, frankly I just found it awesome that you can mod the game to do that. Utterly wonderful.

Now you're being silly. No way does it let you go that fast.

Well, in the worst case you can always make a new kind of a space monster maybe: The One Who Comes Unannounced. :P

It would'nt be 'game breaking' assuming your ready for the game to swiftly end, likely in favor of the race that begins use of the drive first. Strap one of these drives on a world destroyer and get to it.

Yeah, it would need to be a super late-game tech, unless you're looking for a really unbalanced game. But by that point it's often clear who is going to win, and it may be nice to just speed it up a bit.
