So... Boom Blocks.

#1
While constructing my first ever carrier, I went to the misc tab and found this block called "Boom Block." After playing around with it, I noticed that by pushing the settings to maximum, I was able to completely wreck a full HA bunker. I wonder if we can make cruise missiles that can actually do damage?

I believe those are only in the game temporarily to test the new explosion algorithm. Though they’ve made it to stable so perhaps they’re getting left in.

If I were developing, I'd slap a set of them together and call them warheads. Perhaps might find a use for my Ammo-Box 350m/s 9,000 max alt. rocket. :V ...Don't question my understanding of rocketry!! I can throw 40 ammo boxes into the HA ballistic frame and send it to orbit!


Besides the silliness, I'd love to see great big non-missile launcher cruise missiles become a thing.

We have “nukes” though...
We don’t need two single-block explosives for anti-vehicle missiles.
A force as voracious as time itself.
A void as cryptic as reality itself.
An enigma as vexing as life itself.

The boom blocks are very much temporary. Don't go making them critical parts for your ICBMs, as they will turn into wood blocks once removed.

I will make a wooden ICBM, then. For a budget suicide military.

Funny, but i actually tested this. Trying to make an explosive powered rocket is impossible if you use blocks lighter/not as strong as Metal +.

I have some theories, but the most likely one is that the game obeys some mechanics of Mass vs air resistance. Tried making a small icbm out of lightweight alloy, but as soon as i launched it i noticed it didn't quite go as fast, or as high as my normal metal rocket. So, elaborating on this, i made a rocket the same size as it, but used heavy blocks. Interestingly enough, that rocket went 8x as far, 2x faster.

Now, i know we have thrusters 'n stuff, but the currently untapped speed potential of strapping loads of ammo boxes to a solid rocket is immense. these craft have been able to reach instant 350 m/s speed. All one really would need is a rig able to build these on the fly, and an AI capable of piloting such a rocket, soas to drop right ontop of the enemy. Just a suggestion :v

gravram, ammo, nukes, and recoil propulsion are the way of the future Tongue
