About Hyperdrives and Hydrogen:
When you mentioned "Science" a few posts back I immediately thought:
Why is Hydrogen even an issue? It is THE most common element in our universe (Wikipedia says it constitutes 75% of the non-baryonic mass (whatever that means) of it). Maybe substitute something else, that isn't literally MUCH more common than dirt?
Hyperdrives: One thing that I always found interesting with StarWars-Hyperdrives was that you could go faster, the more travelled your route was. They explained that with more detailed and current data on positions of hazards, so a safe jump was both faster to calculate and to execute on a well travelled run. Any chance you found a way to make that happen here?
As always I am following your work with great interest.
And just waiting to build a B-Wing bigger than a Star Destroyer :).
It is true that hydrogen is everywhere..... even inside us as water H2O. However, if I asked you to send me a flask containing pure hydrogen how would you do it? While it is everywhere you still need to separate it from other elements.... which would be expensive. On planets like Earth, there is very little Hydrogen in our atmosphere because Hydrogen is so light that it eventually escapes into space. Unless you extract Hydrogen from the water you would need to mine deep underground on planets like Earth to be able to find Hydrogen. The best place to find Hydrogen is to extract it from gas planets or stars..... gas planets in Distant Worlds.
So while Hydrogen is everywhere, getting it is not so easy.
With hyperdrive speed, this may not be possible as I would have no way to tell the mod a specific route is well travelled or not.
With the B-Wing bigger than the Star Destroyer this is a visual effect I am having good results with such as Star Destroyers close to you, some distance from you, or in the far distance.
