Planetary Gravity

Recommended Posts

Using the power of gravity at a planetary scale would be awesome. The shields for a claimed area could be "gravity sinks" that absorb energy and funnel it into the planet. This could be why you can't build on small moons or asteroids. Ships could also have small gravity sinks that allow them to land on a planet and logout keeping the ship safe (if NQ want's to allow that.)


My favorite idea would be having a "gravity pump" that lifts ships into orbit. I think they should be super expensive to build and have delay, like a timer or a battery that needs to charge. Chemical liftoff and gravity pumps together would increase the strategy of ship design -- do you want to depend on a gravity pump being available or carry the weight and fuel?
