It wouldn't be the first time I've exasperated a fellow member by choosing to comment. :(
Haha, I don't mind that at all :)

That said, I re-watched some LT videos and still could not guess the answer to my original question. Maybe someone who has the prototype could check how that worked in those initial stages of the game history

This is purely from memory...

But Josh had stated in the videos that the asteroids are generated in place, and don't move.
And while he might do dust sized things that are movable like Freelancer had, I doubt he will do movable asteroids.
He wanted the 'roid fields to populate in the same way each time from what I remember of the videos.

So I wouldn't expect that asteroids will get out of your way when you punch into them in cruise mode :V

Yes, he did, because the AI couldn't deal with the pathing.
from what i remember it wasnt a pathing problem but a performance problem with collision detection.
Oh, well that's just stupid then. BSP and various other tools were invented for a reason.
It's fairly easy to implement quick and efficient test cases to see if you need to run actual collision detection.

So unless Josh just had never put effort into it, I can't see why it would have been performance issues. :?
Oh well, moot point 'till the next update anyway. :V
