    You're a bit late to the party :p but first to make a thread.

    Edit: also, that video isn't the best showcase for it :/

    That's a little.... too proportional IMO.
    There should definitely be some damage further out from the crater.

    What would be a better showcase?

    There's a planet smash. There's buildings still alive on the planet.

    Perhaps show a tiny asteroid, followed by larger and larger asteroids?

    Do it in the middle of a large base (or a massive field of pgens?) so that we can see how each asteroid destroys more buildings.

    At present it may be, rather than proportional smashes, smashes that do damage in a smaller area but always the same amount of damage.

    The smashes stay to the size of the crater.

    Is the size of the crater different depending on one of the following?

    Mass
    Radius
    # of Halleys

    Can you make a vid demonstrating this crater size differentiation?

    Yeah if you could make a system with a set of different sized things to throw that'd be nice way to compare :) Good idea stuart...

    I've already made 4 videos today, and 2 videos yesterday. And I'm working on, well, trying to work on, a massive video for the Ablegamers tournament. And I'm behind on a client deadline, and I'm hungry.

    Maybe I'll get to it.

    I can't wait for them to actually make the smash destroy the trees and metal spots and for the craters to be pathable.

    it should destroy more then half the planet IMO, and burn all the trees up, leave a lava crater where it was and let nature slowly regrow starting from the other side of the planet, that would be cool =D

    Well, for unknown reasons my Youtube processing failed, but the effect area is equal to the diameter of the planet being smashed. A 300-radius planet annihilated a 400-radius planet entirely, which caused its remaining moons to form overlapping orbits around the sun and shear a part of each other off.
