I never said it was a good thing.
ah and the next best issue is that since everyone will mod stabilizer to this or that distance and reactor instability to this or that percentage, migrating ships across servers will be night impossible
I am very worried that if the problems with this new update, are not resolved one way or another very soon. Most of the community is going to leave and never come back.
Let's hope the lack of information and/or direction change is from holidays. Saber said last stream that there should be a new dev blog that will hopefully arrive before next week, so we'll see... =3
I miss my cat!!
If we share this across all the forums maybe we'll find out lost cat :, (
I'm trying to test build a ship with two reactors - to switch between different chambers. There doesn't seem to be a hotbar switch for this? You can switch between them in the ship config menus, but if I wanted to switch from rapid FTL to stealth it would be convenient to have a hotbar way to switch?
so... why does my base explode from a single 6k (2 missile/2 beam/ 2 overdrive) missile strike... I have positive integrity across the board and 850k shields (is a small station) yet when a pirate hits it with a single missile things begin exploding for no reason that I can figure out... HELP?!?!?!?!
Check if your shields, reactors, and stabilizers aren't sticks or try increasing integrity. Or it could be a bug in the current build.
Salvage arrays are always big groups of sticks, and so will have awful integrity?
Wow I didn't even think of that. Yeah, salvager ships got an even bigger middle finger than I thought.
How is this Integrity feature at all enjoyable???
Yes, spaghetti was a problem in theory, but since when he's anyone actually encountered one? Not in my 5 years of playing.
It simply was not worth the crushing blow you dealt to creativity and player enjoyment.
It is not intuative to newer players and only subtracts from the game.
It's like somone has a sore hand, so you whack it with a sledgehammer and then give them some pain relief -_-
Thing is, so many system blocks end up being lines or flat sheets, like weapon barrels or a layer of shield capacitors under the hull, or those few blocks inside a diagonal wing filled with whatever... This integrity deal doesn't just hurt spagetthi, it hurts building stuff in general.
They could have just made free-floating block groups start dying off. But I suppose that was too simple.
Actually I don't think integrity affects salvagers, cannons, and other things like that. IIRC it only affects shields, reactors, and stabilizers. But yeah, I do agree that this integrity thing is too restrictive.
Actually it does affect cannons which made it very hard to rebuild my Stream cannon setup, I've also have diagonal wings with suddenly explosive components.
When will this madness end?
Spoiler: This isn't madness...
shipbuilding just got quite a bit more complicated, especially regarding refitting existing hulls & tweaking systems within a set hull
restricting block placement relative to other blocks already placed is quite a bit more frustrating, when it was supposed to be a quality of life change for those rebuilding/refitting ships?
I'd say that's an objective that we've fallen well short of for this update.
Another critique i have is (assuming i've not run into an unfortunate and persistant bug), shield recharge while under fire is completely disabled? why? shield recharge has always been one of the most essential stats in combat even in a meta dominated by long range hit scan beam weapons, it added a major layer of unpredictability in a given fight because it wasn't a stat displayed on nav & required reconnaissance & guesswork to accurately gage. I read a quote from a community mentor recently stating that all shield regen in combat was "already basically zero" or to similar effect, which is factually wrong & worrying, it's, effectively, between ~13 & 24% of tooltip rate multiplied by 1.<ion%>, and combined with mobility & player innacuracy/indecision that's usually the vast majority of mitigation in combat. Are we just done with that altogether?
i got several 2kmas miners, all of them are unable to function under new system cause i dont have the room for the chambers and/or the new shield setup. id say Welcome to matchstick starmade. ships with 121000 recharge on max reactorboost area bit over 200blocks long. me personally thinks that is crazy as hell(not in a good way). Time to change the system schine thinks and says, but they actually made the game even worse to play. Beside that the reactorpoints for a fully boosted reactor with failsafe is 60%, we cant even make ships work with the half of the systems we had before nomatter the size of the ship you make. 40% reactorpoints you cant even get a fully functional fast recharging jumpdrive within the recharge rate of the ship.
It is not a bug. Shield recharge is disabled after hit for 5 seconds. You could lower this time with chambers to 1 second.
so long as beams are still hitscan and turrets can be logic activated (still allows sequenced reloads for full uptime max range weapons) that says zero recharge uptime against an effective combat ship to me
