That's just how the game scales them.

The Desdinova destroyer can't regain engines when it's blown out.  They just re-disable the instant they're repaired.  Is that intended?  (This one had Unstable Injector and Augmented Engines)

I think it's because you're also trying to use the maneuvering jets. There is an issue with using jets just as engines start to come back online which causes the engines to flameout again. Personally, I'd call it a feature, don't push your engines right into the red just after fixing them. "You just managed to start walking again? Great! Now do the 100m sprint". Though I thought the bug appeared because it was the activation of several more engines (as the Eagle, Falcon and Conquest do have special engines only active during maneuvers or while at cruise speed).

The problem is that when an AI controls the ship they always use the jets the second it comes back online.

It's a bug with the core game that affects engine mod systems. If you use the system the instant the engines repair, you get a second flameout. I think Alex knows about it.

Since the thread got revived, I guess I might as well make some sort of statement re: mod development: right now, I'm busy with my finals and moving back to Norway, so I'll probably leave the mod be until the next version is released.

Unless the Desdinova is a part of your fleet and you're not personally flying it, it's probably best to assume control and stop letting the AI get your ships massacred.

It does that when under AI control, I just showed this because it's easier than trying to show it in an actual battle.
