Attempting to Crash into Sagittarius A

Postby DJ_Wylie » Mon May 06, 2019 10:34 am

Recently made it out to the centre of the galaxy. Had this irresistible urge to try and crash into the super-massive black hole there. Made a little video out of my attempt. Hopefully you will like it, enjoy!

Really great vid. its too bad that spaghettification isnt a thing in the game.. I wanted to see your ship stretch and explode

A supermassive black hole may be the worst candidate for a crash attempt actually, and you wouldnt get any spaghettification in one of those.. too big, weak tidal forces

The problem is that once you crash into the exclusion zone you are still light seconds away from the event horizon. Try covering that on conventional thrusters.

It would be more spicy to try that on a small stellar black hole

Nice video.

I found that the supermassive black hole overheats your ship as you approach it even on thrusters but the smaller ones don't I've got very close to them before (few km) but you just seem to wobble past it.
