View Full Version : An exploit that will need fixing at some point (Non-Newtonian Mantas)

Through bad piloting, the Manta you're personally flying is headed for an imminent, unavoidable and fatal impact with the terrain.
Hit 'G' just before you crater. The Manta - now under autopilot - will still impact the ground, but will not be damaged.

That's less Newtonian or non-Newtonian physics, and more "Mantas don't receive damage in accidents while piloted by AI"

Indeed. Sounds much more boring when you say it that way, though.

Hehe. Nevertheless I'm torn: I would really hate having the AI destroying one of my valuable Mantas. Making them indestructible while under AI command isn't maybe the best solution (I would prefer a reliable autopilot) but loosing Mantas to the AI is an absolute No-No! Maybe there should be a small time delay ( 5 seconds or so) for the indestructibility...
