Maneuvering Jets should work with Flameout
« on: August 12, 2012, 06:16:39 PM »

The title pretty much sums it up. Maneuvering Jets are among the weaker systems so they could use a little boost. And it is specifically stated in the description that they are separate thrusters, so it would make sense for them not to be affected by a burnout.

Unless flameouts cause catastrophic system failure in all your engines (which they do) and put the extra thrusters out of action as well....

They are getting a boost in the next update. 100+ base speed. And no flux cost.

Really? I don't see anywhere where it says it gets another +50 speed, just that it will now stack with the zero-flux bonus.

Which essentially equates to +100 speed.

Yes, but 1/2 of it is not from the system, so the system isn't being buffed in the sense of getting even more speed, only in the sense that it's now compatible with the zero flux boost.

I think the point that Yoshi's trying to get across is that ships with jets get an effective +100 no-flux bonus as opposed to the 50 with standard ships. I think the Conquest just turned into a monster

I realize that. I have already said I realize that. That still doesn't mean that Jets give +100 base speed all by themselves, which seemed to be was what Faiter was implying.

Blagh, I'm not reading the right people for the posts. Thought that Yoshi had posted both of 'em. This is what staying up until the early hours does to a mind

And for how much firepower the Conquest can bring to a fight and it can now cruise at, what, 100+ speed while all guns blazing. It IS going to be a monster.

Not to mention awesome mobility too... the damn thing can supposedly fire one broadside, turn, fire both cyclones and keep firing the other broadside in one jet use

and since its already got 50 speed or so. that's 150 with both and if you have nav beacons or 2. that's 200+ speed on a capital ship, and that makes no sense. why stack it?

Yeah, I'm afraid it will make cruisers/destroyers obsolete, since it's both faster & more powerful...

i have to disagree , bigger speed + maneuverability ? right  :-\
& Maneuvering Jets works just fine, especially in nebula & gives U max speed with flux & shield Up

Since single engines can flameout that's not true.

But well, if there are already plans do boost the system...
