I was flying around Earth in atmosphere, took off from Canaveral a few minutes earlier. I set time compression to 100x hoping
to reach Antarctica in not too long. Just for good measure, I hit the turbo pump. A few seconds later, I got the overheat
message! I was going so fast on full thrust that I managed to burn up without ever leaving the atmosphere!

That happened to me when I was having evil fun with the Delta Cannon

I have a DG type craft that has so much power on tap it burns up on take off if I use more than 1 third thrust
I not only get a the orange glow it almost goes white and we get a large pressure wave infront as well

The DG-S built-in to the game can glow white while in scramjet mode.

I like to fly spaceships on an imaginary planet called NaturedTech.  Its an earthlike planet the size between Uranus and
neptune, 3.06G surface gravity and the atmosphere is like breathing a Nitrox scuba tank at 100-110ft depth.  The DG-S cruises
at Mach 6-7 and bobs between 10-13KM (3G, thicker but much shawllower atmosphere).

Realistic? Ever heard of the F-104, or the SR-71. Look at the stats on their skin temperatures in flight. In fact the SR-71
requires that heat to expand the fuselag to reduce fuel leakage.
