The skills, I Imagine will have varying degrees of difficulty in thier choice, and it will be different for every player.
It actually looks quite intersting how everything has been split up.

*Industry skills are all mutually exclusive*
How dare you.

You *could* just go up the industry tree twice! Sacrifices made elsewhere etc etc.

Is it intended that the helmsmanship elite skill does not work with shields up as this is considered "generating flux" even if flux levels are decreasing?

Having shields up never allowed you to use zero-flux boost, even though technically you could stay at zero flux. My guess it stayed the same.

It did when you had the skill that increased the cap to 1%. Though i suppose that answers my question as the reason that you did not get the bonus at 0% was that you were "generating flux over 0%"

Ah, this came while my Starsector computer is non-operational.  It will be a while before I can play the new release.

Right, yeah. Anything that's adding flux, even if the net flux change per frame is negative, will cancel it out.

Glad you like them!

Would you mind posting the stack trace from the log?

Yeah, looks like using the memory management options causes problems on some/fair number of PCs (but, annoyingly, not on my dev box). In the hotfix (i.e. next few days) it'll be disabled by default and you'll be able to turn it back on in settings. Trying to investigate why it's happening and how to avoid it on a wide range of hardware/OS + driver versions/etc is... not hotfix material.

I don't mind. Can you tell me where to find it? I knew but forget.

I just want to say that I love the quality of the writing. I'm making really slow progress because I'm reading everthing, often multiple times, and let the words unfold their images in my mind.

The game was completed 8 years ago and we get a free expansion every year.

Arranging holidays in an embrace with the Starsector is priceless.
