Gravity Well Projectors

GravityWell1

Gravity wells are a small area that has a massive gravitational force, the kind that would make Sir Isaac Newton develop Brain damage from that apple.

Gravity wells cast mass shadows, which inhibit hyperspace travel in their proximity. They are cast by large celestial bodies in nature, such as planets and stars.

Using the power of artificial gravity and hyperphysics, gravity well projectors can be placed on starships to cast enormous mass shadows into hyperspace. This is useful for many things, including:

  • Pirates preventing trade ships from escaping, so they can catch them
  • Preventing enemies from bringing reinforcements by trapping them with wells

Multiblock

Required materials:

  • 1x Sponge
  • 1x Diamond Block
  • 1x Glass (Stained glass works as well)
  • 1x Container (Dropper, Dispenser, Chest)
  • 2x Stone Slab
  • 4x Iron Block
  • 9x Stairs
  • 1x Sign

Usage

  1. Build a gravity well on your ship
  2. Right click the sign to turn it on

This will cast a mass shadow while on. It prevents people from jumping within that range of your ship and pulls ships passing through hyperspace within that range of your ship out of hyperspace. Its radius depends on its class:

Corvette800

Destroyer1600
Cruiser2000
Battlecruiser2400
Star Destroyer2800

Amplified Wells

AmplifiedWell1

Amplified Wells are what they sound like: Amplified Gravity Well Projectors. These stronger wells are limited to the Interdictor as it is specialized to utilize this one multiblock. They do everything a gravity well does, except are better in many ways. With this you can project a massive well with a radius of 6,000 blocks and you only have to wait 15 seconds for it to activate. Unlike other ships with gravity wells, you may shift-fly your Interdictor around without it deactivating.
