Crew Bonus to Travel Speed
« on: May 20, 2012, 06:29:47 PM »

So elite crew is supposed to boost both travel and combat speed by the same percentage, correct? That's what the in-game tooltip says. So why is my Paragon only getting +1 to travel speed?

Another thread says that travel speed is calculated as:

SPDC/2 + 100 = SPDT

take combat speed divide it by 2 and then add 100.. you have travel speed.

I'm guessing since it's calculated on-the-fly, it's done as:

CREWB* SPDC/ 2 + 100 = SPDT

...instead of:

CREWB* (SPDC/ 2 + 100 = SPDT)

Give or take any rounding. Was this intended as it is currently or is the second formula what it's supposed to be? 116.5 vs 126.5 for a Paragon's travel speed is fairly significant. The same applies tro all the other ships' travel speeds. (e.g. Elite crew only give a +5 bonus to a Medusa: 150 base, 155 w/ Elite Crew.) According to the displayed in-game stats, we're technically missing 10 travel speed on each ship with elite crew.

It's calculating the speed as intended, but you're right, the tooltip is wrong here.

DRATS! I was hoping it was a bug! ::)

Well, now I don't feel like I'm getting cheated out of +10 travel speed, but it would've been REALLY nice to have that extra travel speed. Oh, well...
