Barrel Roll OXP

From Elite Wiki
(Redirected from Barrel Roll)


Barrel-rolling is a time-proven evasive tactic, when attacked, for those that can't afford or prefer not to fight back, or are facing overwhelming odds, and can't out-run their attackers.

But manually keeping a ship barrel-rolling for minutes to hours until the attacker(s) give up is a boring, mindless and even painful task.

With that in mind, Think of It as Evolution in Action Corporation would like to present Barrel Roll Governor™, a software add-on to your ship's auto-pilot.

Once primed (by pressing <Shift>-<N> in the default keyboard configuration) and activated (by pressing <N> in the default keyboard configuration), this little add-on keeps the ship in a barrel-roll until de-activated (by pressing <N> again), leaving you to just adjust heading through your yaw controls now and then to keep going in the direction you want, but otherwise free to browse the Galactic Net, eat your doughnut, drink your tea, pet your cat, or do whatever your prefer to while the time away.
