I remember seeing in the nova bible and in evnew that giving a planet/space station a beam weapon as its stellar defense weapon 'bad' (whether it be a glitch, a graphics problem, a crash, or your computer inexplicably exploding) things would happen. I know that in the updated version it just limits the range but what would happen if you took an out-of-date copy of nova and did something like this? I just want to know because I thought of it fairly recently and was just curious. And on to something completely different!
Anyone remember EVC? Anyone remember all weird mysterious stuff that happened? Well I was thinking of making a quasi TC explaining all that for the nova port version. The player is PI that whose current client is a secret organization, and he has to do a lot of missions (duh) and gather information on all kinds of strange things that happened in Escape velocity prior to this plug; like what happened to all those kestrels from the shipyard description, why does George's World have so many earthquakes, where did the aliens come from, stuff like that. I know the short answer to all those questions are, the pirates did, plate tectonics, why does it matter, but please use your imaginations, anyway if anyone has any ideas regarding either of these topics please post a reply
