Just realized there's even a precedent for the freighter progression to continue into the frigate tier: The Fuel-Tanker progression does.

If CR also goes down based on how tired the crew is due to constant fighting, how does that jive with having CR completely restored at a friendly station? Do you end up taking the crew out drinking? Or does the date automatically advance however many days are enough to get them all willing to jump back into battle? I haven't figured that out, yet.

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.

Each station is equipped with a revitalization chamber that restores the user in minutes, but is extremely addictive. All crew work solely to feed their habit. You do not pay them, you pay rent on their chamber time. Combat stress causes chamber withdrawal.

Alex's stance right now is that there isn't any particular value on your time in-game that would make you unwilling to stand around for a few days to recover your CR and frankly not much to do but bash pirates over the head, you get an option to skip some pointless waiting and get back to playing.

The implication seems to have been that "Push button, instant CR recover" may not be a mechanic in the final game, and is a temporary measure to make the current alpha more playable while time isn't a resource.

I really dislike how low CR can just completely disable your ships thus far.

Then how come the mercenaries in Jagged Alliance had their stamina go down after visiting 'that' place in San Mona?

Okay so, essentially, what you are saying is that the crew-exhaustion part of combat readiness will NOT be recovered by the station in future versions unless you decide to stay x-amount of time?

Yeah, I'm really not liking the whole CR deal myself. Bleeding supplies off to get CR back after a battle is just cutting into my profits too much. :(

The problem i have with combat readiness is that you can't even run away anymore with 0%, because your crew has forgotten how to turn on shields, use the engines basically everything but turning your turrets without firing, it doesn't make any sense whatsoever, i understand having problem and malfunctions but locking down the whole ship because what, your crew suddenly died or forgot how to use even the most basic systems... it's not fun to get taken out by a pirate fleet that you could have easily run away from with basic controls. I'm not even talking about fighting here. It does not make sense in the form it is now, there is a difference between your crew being exhausted and your crew being dead and suicidal because of low cr.
