Cool, I was just talking about possible games like this and just saw you follow. Does momentum build up so that acceleration in one direction needs to be cancelled out before moving backwards? Do you have twitter? Maybe we can have a chat about this?
Thanks for taking a look Michael! Yes , velocity is conserved as well as angular momentum. To head in the opposite direction the ship would need to cancel is forward velocity. There is not a Twitter handle for OD yet but it is now on the list. Love to chat more about the mechanics. Thanks again!
