 Year 9 Day 98 11:09 System Positions Orion Mcphee How does the glactic position of systems relate to the distance between them. Yes I inderstand A2+B2=C2. What is the distance scale used? 1 LY per units?____________Warning this is strictly Orions McPhees Opinion, it may or may not have any bearing on events true or imagined Year 9 Day 98 11:35 System Positions Syn Actually we don't believe in Pythagoras around here - a diagonal is considered the same as a straight horizontal/vertical line in terms of travel time. The trouble with this is that we don't have a set means of determining distances, and it's kind of a moot point since we don't use any sort of units for distance. We just use grids, and you can see yourself how many grids away something is from another point.____________ Year 9 Day 98 13:33 System Positions Orion Mcphee So how is hyperspace travel time between systems calculated?____________Warning this is strictly Orions McPhees Opinion, it may or may not have any bearing on events true or imagined Year 9 Day 98 13:41 System Positions Phryss Arbitrary units. It takes 1 speed unit X time to cross 1 grid unit.____________I dare you to make less sense. Are you a newbie, or do you have access to newbies? Year 9 Day 98 13:56 System Positions Orion Mcphee Thanks____________Warning this is strictly Orions McPhees Opinion, it may or may not have any bearing on events true or imagined Year 9 Day 98 14:35 System Positions Teniel Djo Parsecs :D____________ Year 9 Day 98 16:13 System Positions Orion Mcphee Are you saying each grid is a parsec per side?____________Warning this is strictly Orions McPhees Opinion, it may or may not have any bearing on events true or imagined Year 9 Day 98 17:24 System Positions Syn No, it's undefined.____________ Year 9 Day 98 17:34 System Positions Orion Mcphee Ok, Thanks Teniel for the help...____________Warning this is strictly Orions McPhees Opinion, it may or may not have any bearing on events true or imagined
