Empty Fighter Bays vs Carrier Group/Fighter Uplink
« on: April 01, 2021, 05:32:41 AM »

As it currently stands, having empty fighter bays in your fleet counts toward the total number of bays against these skills. This ends up somewhat limiting as you're unable to have a few Colossus Mk. III vessels for their Ground Support Package without tanking the effective value of the mentioned skills, as well as being punished for having ships only using a partial amount of their wings. The hullmod Converted Fighter Bay can alleviate the issue of ships that come with bad built-in wings (Venture/Shepherd), but there's nothing to be done for Colossi Mk3s and no 'partial fighter bay removal' option for other carriers when you may be trying to get the most out of your carrier skills.

I simply suggest that empty fighter bays do not count against the total of the Carrier Group and Fighter Uplink skills.
