I'm an Idiot...

    I'd like to report myself for accidental griefing on the Space Engineers survival server. Long story short, I managed to crash someone else's ship. To the owner of the Dog Sled 2.0, I sincerely apologize. Today is literally the first day I've had the game, so I'm still getting used to the mechanics. I had just built my first ship, and I wanted to compare its speed to another small ship. The Dog Sled happened to be the closest ship, so I borrowed it. I swear I was being as careful as possible, but I (stupidly) didn't realize that a ship with more mass doesn't stop as fast as a smaller one. I hit the side of the larger welding ship, and blew the back off of the Dog Sled. Again, I'm terribly sorry; I had no intention of breaking the ship. I recovered as many pieces of the ship as possible, and restored them to full health. The welding ship is also at full health. I also parked the remaining part of the Dog Sled in the cargo bay. I would have attempted to rebuild the back half of the ship, but I have no idea how it was put together. To whoever owns the ship, I'm more than willing to help repair it; I just don't know how. One last time, I'm really sorry about the crash.

    Lol you wouldn't think the bigger it is the longer it takes to stop like in real life?

    The ship wasn't much bigger than the one I made, so I didn't think there would be that much of a difference. Also, video games != real life.

    Space engineers is designed to be as close as possible to real life just saying :p

    All you need to recognise is physics. Since this is a game that emulates our knowledge of physics; if you have two bodies that are nearly equal mass, you need to know if they have similar thruster power. If they do not, then assume that one will slow down/accelerate/turn faster/slower than the other. Space is not the ground, you can't just accelerate and assume you'll slow down. There is little to no gravitational/frictional forces to slow you down. Just for hilarity's sake I like to just punch the accelerator and crash things. I like destruction.

    Also, Spaaaaaaaaaaaaaceeeeeeeee, I'm in Spaaaaaaaaaaaaaceeee

    Just be glad it wasn't Ford Prius, as that is my favorite ship, and it's fast, way too fast

    The Ford Prius is safe over in Space Canada.
