Yes. I couldn't link you to it, but yes.
Thanks Talvieno. Praise Josh!
So what exactly is going to stop me from flying down into a gas giant? Or any other planet's atmosphere for that matter?
An invisible wall telling me to turn back? That would be so sad. I hope assured death is the deterrent here instead.
Evochron worked pretty okay too. You could skim the top layers of a gas planet, but the deeper levels had huge turbulence, threw you about like a paper airplane, and finally deep enough you were crushed. It's a tense, tactical approach, a bit like the race in one of the Space Odyssey books. Of course, LT doesn't have seamless planetary entry, so no idea how that mechanic is going to work. Something similar with crunchy ships, I'm sure.
