The G-Diffusser


Kursed

Recommended Posts

personnaly I think the G-diffuser stops inertia so that if a ship would crash unless  the g-diffuser is damaged  the pilot would not slamm into the console. Additionnaly it creates a gravitational field around the ship so that it can hover or fly in any  level of gravity as well as creating artificial gravity for the cockpit.

Check your G-diffuser system!

from what I've seen (and think), I agree with Kursed. Not only does the G-diffuser allow the craft to "bend' gravity for maneuverability's sake, it creates an artificial gravitational field so the pilot can stand the forces from maneuvers that would otherwise tear the ship apart and black/red-out the pilot.

We've had several topics about this. And while I used to think that the G-Diffuser was a gravity-based engine that allowed the Arwing to fly in space like it did in mid-air, WE KNOW WHAT THE G-DIFFUSER DOES. It is specifically mentioned in the Official SF64 players' guide:

In the Arwing, the G-Diffuser acts both as a force-field generator and an inertial dampener/hull integrity field (reduces the effects of high-G maneuvers).

In the Landmaster, almost all the energy of the G-Diffuser is used for hull integrity, which is why the tank is apparently more vulnerable while barrel rolling.

The G-Diffuser on the Blue Marine is far stronger than both the Arwing's and Landmaster's, even though the unit is smaller in size.

When described, the G-Diffuser is an "anti-force generator" which is consistent with both inertial dampener and hull integrity field technologies.

The Wolfen II has a more powerful G-Diffuser than its predecessor.

It obviously affects the gravitational pull of the machine as well though. F-Zero machines also have a G-Diffuser and I've seen them pull of some stunts that couldn't possibly be done with the gravitational pull being affected somehow.

so it does dampen inertia and that explains why starwolf and starfox don't wear helmets while flying. thank you Mr.K I thought I saw something about this before and I wasn't sure  if there was a cannon soure for this.

I thought it was along the lines of this anyway. Because if you look at some of the maneuvers that the Arwing does, there is no way that a normal plane could do that. G-Forces would cause the pilot to black out, and they would also rip the ship apart.

in a human...we have to remember that this isn't a earth thing. however I kinda agree on the pilot part  because in the atmopshere or space the pilot would be thrown around by the manuvers they do.

This topic again?

I believe in the G-Diffuser as a magnetic/anti-grav device that provides propulsion control, sheilding, and a cool green glow in Assault.

It kinda is. See, no matter where you go in the universe, and no matter what type of life you're talking about, there are certain limits that can't be surpassed, because of the nature of the universe. All brain-based organisms (including Star Fox) will be susceptible to brain-based damage. These are easily caused by high-G maneuvers.

I don't know what the G-Diffuser exactly does, but there's something wrong with it.  :falco:

I still don't think we can assume anything about them.

That's an odd statement. You make assumptions without realizing it. Such as: Krystal being a vixen. She could be a wolf except that you assume from your eye-sight that they gave her fox-like features because she's a fox.

Certain assumptions are called for. Others are not. You need to distinguish between them, rather than avoiding all possible assumptions.

It seems this quesion arises quite often. A bit strange since we allready know the answer.

The G-diffuser seemingly doesn't work against gravity and allows the fighter to hover, but instead damps the extreme g-forces the pilots are subject to during fast accelaration, deaccelaration and tight turns. If it wasn't for that, the pilots would simply be crushed to bloody pulps. Their eyes would explode, eardrums burst, huge internal bleeding... It would have been quite nasty I suspect.
