cyboot chapter 8 . 8/16
the problem with all that is that is assumes mass effect is subject to logic and the physiks of our universe...
which of course its not...
eezo is just space-magic and logic/physics does not apply

the whole concept of mass effect fields for ftl would not work from the start...

reducing the mass of something just allows you to accelerate it more (with the same energie compared to its normal mass), but you would still need infinite energy to reach c and it wouldn't get you past c

and if you remove all mass you instantly travel at exactly c and nothing else

c beeing the speed of causality, at which everything without mass moves (which happens to include light)

Very creative use of mass effect. I can only imagine what would happen if Halo humanity got a hold of Eezo. However I see problems. Plasma is a 4th state of matter. It is not a solid,liquid,or gas. Relays are the ultimate artillery. You do realize that you can't do much while IN that fire way space it would be difficult to get an ftl collapse. Then you have to aim it. Remember no incindaries or explosives in space so you have be precise. Not happening. Also like that jackass in the said civilizations have tried FTL ramming w/ an ftl field collapse. Didn't work. However I would like to point out particle cannons and intergalatic nukes( picture an inter continental nuke with FTL) are probably fair game. I mean we have particle accelerators not so big of a stretch to turn it into mass accerator.
Are you dumb chapter 1 . 7/25/2015
Dude, this is the most bullshit thing i ever read, this is not over analysis, this is complete wank

First, you assume that mass effect violates conservation of energy, this is complete and absolute bullshit that you based half of your wank on

There are countless theories on how exactly mass accelerators are supposed to work, but there is no indication they produce kinetic energy from nowhere, it just that 1 meter rail can only impart so much velocity, mass lighten the bullet, and impact exactly the same ammount of energy, 2 things happen, either bullet tries to conserve its momentum and drains energy from mass effect to retain it upon leaving the barrel, leaving as fast as when it was lightened but more killy, possibly requiring second small push upon leaving to force it to draw energy, or your space magic shit happens, guess which one is more likely

Second, upon disabling FTL field no lorenz shit happens, instead in one instant ftl field is gone and you still travel ftl, in the second your entire mass energy turns into cherenkov radiation, which is WHAT IS DESCRIBED IN CODEX YOU COMPLETE FUCKTWIG, DID YOU EVEN READ IT?!

In codex it was also mentioned that all drives are hardwired to NOT let this happen, when you try to collide with something mass effect ftl field goes trought safety shut down or something, probably fast disabling sequence, lowering it and not letting ship ever be faster than speed of light, or maybe automatic thrust counter push, it was also mentioned that in reaper war ships repeatedly tried to ram reapers while in FTL, they even succeded one time, NO EFFECT!

play mass effect 3 and try to listen to background or reading all small codexes and notes, they even mentioned trying to bomb them to hell with antimatter bombs they hastily produced, they didnt even slow them down and maybe killed 2 reapers

Third, kinetic barriers, also countles theories on how they work, i personaly think they just produce interwinned low/high mass effect field and slam shit of course / rip it apart, there also is information that reaper mass effect fields actualy shrug off gardian lasers, THEY BLOCK LASERS!

And this time not directed to you, motherfucking plasma weapons are possibly the worst matchup agains kinetic barriers, they are GAS for god sake! ionised but still GAS, magneticaly held lumps of ionised gas, that deal damage via splashing and exploding, radiation is meanligness, unless said plasma lump can be so dense and hot that it resembles miniature sun and its radiation is in ultraviolet melting shower of light range or higher, no way in hell radiation will damage hull, even when blown up half a meter from said hull, space is just that terrible conductor of heat

Same about particle beams, they are actualy better than slugs because they have terrible kinetic energy when you count all particles in beam toghever due to being just a loose stream of particles, so kinetic barriers dont have that much to fuck with, but individual particles are relativistic and they literraly drill, fuse and split individual particles of hull upon hit

both are NOT energy weapons as some idiots think they are

Fourth, com buoys

Doom lasers, wat? they are miniature primitive relays that like all relays, generate corridor of highly lowered mass between 2 relays, 2 relays are the key here, they ARE NOT ONE WAY, you CAN'T GENERATE THEM WITHOUT END RELLAY, one way rellay DONT EXIST, and deffinetly you can't use them as ping

Oh, and problem of dispersion? still exist, its just that space between several light year separated buoys are EQUALIVMENT OF SEVERAL DOZEN METTERS, also, buoys mass corridors are nearly microscopic in width

Fifth, immortality medigel

yes, deffinetly, just small problem, there are prototype nanomachines that cured diabetes type 1 already, genetic research in immortality is quite starting to achieve things, if this goes on, humanity will be biologicaly immortal BEFORE we will properly start expanding in our solar system

That only means that any and all council races are complete idiots because they are spacefaring for thousands of years and they still fucking age and have disseases

Sixth, i admit, static charge is pretty dumb, or maybe you greatly underestimate magnitude of said static charges? reapers simply dont care about static charges, and so when they land on planet they produce absolute clusterfuck of lightning storm for a little while, do you know how powerfull normal lightning is? yeah, AND REAPERs PRODUCE LIGHTNING THAT IS EQUAL TO BIGGEST TROPICAL STORMS ON OUR PLANET AND THEIR LIGHTNING CAN LINGER FOR FULL SECOND, you still think you can convert THAT without your little machine melting?

Seventh, im suprised that you didnt touch biotic singularity and reaper black star weapon, this is a big property of ezoo that can be ridiculously wanked, and you still ignored it, ezoo can localy increase mass to such degree as to localy increase schwarzschild radius and produce a fucking singularity for several seconds, then explode when field dissapears with those several nano/micrograms mass of said blackhole turning directly into energy

And finally, biotics, they are bullshit dark energy black space magic that doesnt have anything to do with eezo and everything to do with psionics eezo, because fucking telekinesis, wormholes and other shit, there is also said that original ending (main writter got kicked after mass effect 2) was to be about biotics stopping universe expansion, and original reaper motive was to FARM SUPER BIOTICS, still better than mass effect 3

Eighth, biotics, they are bullshit dark energy black space magic that doesnt have anything to do with eezo and everything to do with psionics eezo, because fucking telekinesis, wormholes and other shit, there is also said that original ending (main writter got kicked after mass effect 2) was to be about biotics stopping universe expansion, and original reaper motive was to FARM SUPER BIOTICS, still better than mass effect 3, other than that, your version is wank, based on energy from nothing wankezo, and can go toe to toe with lastest movie superman, BULLSHIT

Ninth, humanity technologies in fiction, yes i get it, you like lasers, you like bomb pumped lasers, you fucking love them, and they are really powerfull, the problem is both their yield and tonnage of your ships is completely and totaly unrealistic, their size and engines even more so, and some of your advanced tech is completely impossible and ignores half of physics (conduit drive, "static" spacetime manipulations (how does "static" even work, do you actualy how what properties spacetime actualy has?) wormholes are closest to realistic, but their casual usage is very unrealistic, you also didnt mention how they got exotic matter (yes, outsiders fic is most glaring, but also fun, WHY DID YOU DISCONTINUE IT?!)) on top of being VERY easy to crack, you also greatly overestimate AI's and underestimate council firewalls, what the hell they have, encyption codes in low thousands of bits? VI controlled adaptive firewalls with mass lightened super computers? constant pressure from their fear of geth and ai to constantly develop? notice how you cant hack the geth, but no geth ever hacked quarians in a way that would seriously cripple them, going back to exotic and advanced tech, that shit is the shit you would likely attain after you build your own dyson sphere, its a shit that operates on such exotic and imaginary level of physics and math that you need planets worh of computronium to actualy advance past certain level, yet you decided to give incredibly advanced tech to race that is barely spacefaring for several centuries, do you want to know what realistic tech level is for such synthetic humanity with dyson sphere? go and read Transcendent Humanity

That is all
Shiney McShine chapter 1 . 5/15/2015
Not to be fallacious, but I had always assumed the in ME kinetic energy was conserved. If you change an objects mass then the velocity has to change in order to keep energy constant.

So in the case of the guns, a small weight had its mass drastically increased so that more energy could be imparted to it by the rails. Then when it left the barrel the mass would revert, but the energy would be carried to the target by it giant velocity. Energy would be conserved, momentum would be conserved and all the weird effects associated with the reactionless drives and FTL could be explained by strong electrical coupling to quantum vacuum via the Woodward effect. Which is thing that may actually exist and work as described.

Wasn't the "Mass Relay as asteroid slinging superweapon" thing mentioned in the codex in the game as one of the WMDs banned by the council?
animefan29 chapter 4 . 3/7/2015
Options 2, 3, and 6 seem to require more precision than what most biotics in the game are seen capable of.
animefan29 chapter 3 . 3/7/2015
Question: for that "Speed Limit" kinetic barrier you say that the loss of the slug's kinetic energy is reliant on it entering low mass/fast light area after exiting the "Speed Limit's" high mass/slow light area. Are you saying that there has to be a negative mass effect field underneath a positive field? Or that after being slowed down by "Speed Limit" the slug simply needs to be restored to non-altered area of space with its original mass?
FutureMan chapter 8 . 2/26/2015
What about the EmDrive then?
Raderong78 chapter 8 . 2/25/2015
Sorry that my english isn't very good, but i will try to explain. Now i know you need it to put a bunch of eezo in the core to make mass effect field, but i got a better theory. is about you put like 2 or 3 eezo ore ( or sand i don't know ) similar to a Tokamak reactor and let them spin around very fast with magnetic feild or whatever and see if will help increasing the mass effect field. So what do you think?
What the chapter 8 . 12/20/2014
Ok, you know dude? this is ... I don't know how to explain it. You are trying to apply some form of crazy known as "spacebattles competence" where anyone who does not seem to use their technology to the most ridiculous degree is either incompetent or braindead stupid. You talk of particle beams and unlimited ftl, what about fuel and power sources? What about the static charge that Eezo cores build up huh? And you can't handwave that shit away because the writers who wrote this knew the universe that they were crafting.

Because contrary to popular belief there is no violation of conservation of energy and momentum here dude, the writers who crafted this universe did a hell of a lot more thinking than you they considered blue shifting and red shifting the effects of Mass effect on Eezo who the hell died and made you the god of canon?

this is less an analysis and more like "Humanity fuck yeah I'm smart and writers are dumbasses" wanking you remind me of people who use their barely remembered high school physics lessons to masturbate ideas out

let's just hope the shell collapse itself before accidentally hit on a planet far away.

hahahaha! that would be a nasty surprise for the Reapers and Turians
luu7 chapter 7 . 11/1/2014
So, what about the thanix Magnetic-Hydrodynamic Weapon, they got potential or not? Also i recommend you read The Encyclopedia Biotica by LogicalPremise, its explain about the theory of biotics.
Lord Sia chapter 7 . 10/29/2014
Your ideas about mass effect are based on canon, which is why it does not work; they obviously didn't have - or at least, paid attention to - a scientific advisor. If mass effect worked as per canon, it is basically a source of infinite energy - which brings up so many issues I can't even bother to list them. Your accurate analysis of how the shields should work, taking advantage of the implications of this, similarly displays how inconsistent the universe is.

As is, the Mass Effect amounts to Space Magic, and as such, it possesses exactly the powers it needs to as per Plot.

If you want mass effect compatible with Real Physics, then element zero needs an input of energy to generate increased-mass fields, and *negative energy* to generate reduced-mass fields. Mass Accelerators would work by momentum; a high-mass low-velocity projectile exiting an increased-mass effect field would drain that field of energy and gain a proportional amount of kinetic energy. Thus, ME weapons would still need pretty damn impressive power sources, doubly so if they launch the projectiles using electromagnetism. Similarly, shields should then work by projecting high-mass fields, thus slowing down incoming projectiles by reducing their kinetic energy while increasing their momentum. Which means you would still be hit, it would just be the sort of high-mass low-velocity impact that's comparatively easy to design armour to protect against.

For that matter, hyper-velocity impacts - such as those implied by grains of sand with kinetic energy comparable to modern bullets - result in explosions upon impact; at most, it might penetrate a few centimetres before explosively vapourising from the heat of deceleration. And that's a heavy metal round against bare flesh; any sort of armour will pretty much stop it cold. And that is if atmospheric friction does not reduced the projectile to a dispersing cloud of plasma due to the speed involved.

Finally, biotics; so. Much. Bullshit. To begin with, the amount of electricity in the human nervous system is downright pathetic, meaning any schmuck with some eezo, a battery and a circuit board could do the same. Second, mass effect fields - as described - does not allow for effects like "throw" or "lift", unless you are doing a stylish but hilariously inefficient "force push" through air pressure or generating enough negative energy to offset the planet's gravity (in a localised area, true, but still - also, time dilation is a bitch). For that matter, being able to project fields at a distance - not just project them outwards, which only implies reduced-mass space warping and thus *the ability to manipulate negative energy in your nervous system* - but generate them from a point-source at a distance implies the ability to generate *wormholes*. In other words, *point to point* FTL transmission, AKA teleportation.

Don't get me started on Asari reproduction. Just, don't. My inner biologist spontaneously turns into a Weeping Angel every time I think about it, while my inner physicist starts imitating a Dalek.
