I recently decided to try and see how close to the actual speed of lightning (130,000 MPH) I could get. I figured this was more attainable than the speed of light. It turns out to be equally unattainable.
But I managed to travel faster than I’ve ever gone before. My current top speed in my teleport chip assisted vehicle was only 34,597 MPH. Only a fraction of the speed of lightning. And no where near the speed of light. I couldn’t even gain a single bar on the light speed meter.
The contraption I used consisted of 2 objects only. A modified Expression 2 chip with the “reposition” function, and a chair with an adv ball socket to eliminate all rotation. The two were no collided to make it easy to find the chair when coding the chip. (It’s a boring looking thing, do I really need a picture?)
When I got in the chair I was teleported to where ever I looked (I choose the largest map I could find, GM_infinitive), when I exited the chair was teleported home to a spot just above the chip. And I teleported home with it using a teleport swep.
Try as I might, my best speed traveling at instantaneous jump intervals every game tick was only a mere 34,600 MPH. (I only managed about ~16,000MPH using applyforce.)
After a few seconds of traveling in one direction, I hit the edge of the engine’s capacity to find me and I crashed the server, having zoomed past more ghosts of the map than I could really count.
What’s your fastest contraption? How fast did it go? Do you know if anyone has broken the lightspeed barrier?
