Last thing I''ll ask.

Okay I'm just wondering where can I change the turning ratious for an eagle, drake and stuff like that for my mod, just ships I think have either to much turning or not enough. Also how can I change the speed it takes to charge up your cruise engin?

Thanks for the help that everyone has giving me the past week or so.

Its the ratio of steering_torque divided by angular_drag. This = the turning speed in radians per second.

Watch out for the rotational_inertia too though, it should be 10% to 20% of the angular_drag.

There is also a multiplier to apply to the mass to get the angular_drag for different ship sizes/masses.

It's quite a science really!

Take a look at Page 2 of this topic for more info and how to work it out for different ship types:- Spinning Ships

Cruise_charge_time is in engine_equip.ini...

All the best.

Okay so what sould I add, to make it turn faster? Or what should I take away to make it turn faster? Can you just give me an example of the codes, that I should edit to make the eagle turn like a starflyer? lol
