Why hovercraft noobs are worse
Submitted By Lamp on 12/08/04
 

Jet noobing (similar to hovercraft noobing) is where one is in a jet and flies away with the quary. But the meanest noobing is: hovercraft noobing. Why? Because hovercrafts, when drifting on totally flat ground, has 0 friction, which allows it to coast at up to 1100. The hovercraft can outrun the jet. So a hovercraft will hover away, speed up to 1000 mph, release the gas, and just relax. The reason why you cannot go over 1100 mph is because Mars Explorer has a limit, so when speeds go over 1100, it goes down back to 500. Jets are unstable with keeping speeds, so it is hard to maintain exact speed like the hovercraft can. It always accelerates, and when you hold Q, the jet slowly drifts downward and slows down, and then you have to speed up again, slow down, and so on, but with hovercraft, you don't have to do anything.

You can do hovercraft noobing in any world. That is because there is invisible lava at -300 alt in worlds that don't have the "Sea". All worlds have lava, so what you do is, you fall off the world in your hovercraft, and when you fall off, wait till you get to around -200 alt, then hold command so you don't go too fast and get below the boundary. Release command when you land on the lava. Now you can run away at super sonic speeds. No jet or hovercraft can get to you.


Oh and another thing, by default, Laser Lck is medium for jets, which means if there is a jet noob, you can chase him with your jet, and aim your green stick (whatever you call it) at the quarry, and it will automatically fire a special laser (if red laser, it will home at the quarry. The homing isn't perfect, the laser goes straight, and when it gets close, it will change it's direction toward the quarry, and catch him. Green lasers don't do that, but they have a higher firing rate.) toward the quarry. Then what I recommend is, fly back to world, and aim your green stick toward someone, so you get a point. Then switch to a different vehicle, and continue playing.

If you are chasing hovercraft noobs, you have to hurry up and start chasing them, or it will be impossible to catch them. If you are host, evict the noob. If not, you could hack the game with MarsHax* (In a good and proper way) to get quarry, and return the quarry, or you could ask the host to evict him.

*MarsHax is off (shut down) right now, so you cannot use MarsHax to catch a n00b. Hopefully it will turn on soon (it's been a while).

You don't wanna have bots that are hovercrafts and can fire, because they will catch you, and run away. Bots are pure noobs. I once was chasing hovercraft bots that were quarry in my hovercraft, and even though I was going a little more than 1000 mph, but the DST was still going up quite fast. I am not sure if the bots have a 1100 mph limit like we do, but it seems so, because they were going much faster than me. The only way to get over the limit is with a glitch where you are launched super fast, but you still will be slowed down. I think it is because the limit is in act, but you go soo fast, that it goes from 500 to 1100 in a few milliseconds, but the speedometer has a slower sample rate, so it thinks it is going really fast. I'm not sure, but that is my theory. Anyway, back to the bots, you need to aim your stick at them ASAP before they get too far away!!!

Don't bam your own posts.
 
I've thought they should be called the same thing, perhaps "distance noobing"? And ground noobing, where you stay in one place, is usually utilized to GET quarry by jets and hovercrafts.

Hovercraft noobing is much less worse than jets. Because of lack of air flaps or ground touching maneuverability, you can't turn very much in it at all. If you see an obstacles coming at you at high speeds, you will almost definitely hit it.
 
Recently I have been playing this game if agreed upon where I try to get the quarry and run through obstacles, where I rarely get above 200 mph, and it is really fun, if I manage to get past the beginning acceleration without getting shot. Jets are extremely far worse because of their amazing maneuverability...

You don't understand. ALL WORLDS HAVE LAVA. but not ll worlds have it visible. The wavy stuff is just an animation that shows where the lava is. In worlds without the wavy, the lava is at -300 alt, so hovercrafts can get on it, and run away.
 
In the beginning, it is easier to get away with a jet, but to stay away, hovercraft is best. It is impossible to catch a hovercraft noob going at 1000 mph.

Oh look, I'm in a jet and someone is shooting at me, turn quickly to be at a right angle to them! Oh, I'm in a hovercraft and they are behind me, darn. Plus, I don't really run away with the quarry.

Once you are off, you run away at 1000 mph without pressing any keys. Hovercraft has no friction at all when on flat.

In Mars Explorer 3, you can set the Speed Limit very high so you can go past 1100 mph. Yu could make it to probably even 10,000 mph!

Adjust the Speed limit slider to max. Edit the speed limit even higher in settings I/O.
