DevLog 2024/02: Ionizing Radiations

The latest update models the neutron flux from the ship’s reactor and the ionizing radiations coming from the space environment. The ship is fitted both with active and passive shielding devices to protect the crew.

The CSN-F9 is a thermonuclear torchship, and although her fusion reactor does not produce many neutrons relatively to its power, without proper shielding the escaping flow would still be large enough to kill the crew near instantaneously.
To complicate things further celestial bodies also emit deadly ionizing radiations.

The following video presents the related models in the game, together with the ship’s protection systems to keep the crew in good health.

There are still a few systems to complete in the crew module but the development should soon start to focus on the gamification layer and on the ship’s military equipment.

Fly safe!

      Ah I’m afraid that it still is a bit too soon for these. But your question makes me think that a feature summary could be useful as part of the reporting indeed, thanks 📝🙂

      Thanks for your interest in the project. Just answered the question above, sorry for the low sampling rate 🙂
      But yes at this time a teaser would not properly reflect on the intended content while the game layer is still missing.
