    Silent running and/or low heat emission in combat

    Hi everyone, I was wondering if it makes sense to tailor a ship for using silent running in combat as much as possible to avoid damage, and have a general low amount of heat emission (engineer power plant for that aspect) to be less lockable? Would this work out, also by equipping as much heat...

    How Effective is Silent Running in 3.3?

    As an ex-submariner, "silent running" has great appeal to me. I've been playing around with different builds and configurations and flight practices to maximize my time in SR, but I'm starting to wonder if it's still viable in the latest update. It used to be that when I switched to SR when...

    Neutron experiments by a space mad explorer

    This post is essentially a culmination of some experiments I have been doing. At first it started out as a question on the fleetcomm squad chat. What happens when you neutron jump at 1%? Somewhere along the way it balooned into many experiments with people asking various things for me to test...

    Thrust Panels

    Thrust Panels Instead of having a huge rocket engine I suggest using panels full of micro engines that combine their power. Sometime small works more efficiently than a large one. This technology is seriously on table in NASA research. The future of rocket engineering means that everything...

    Does the game consider heat damage "thermal damage" and does thermal resistance apply?

    Just wondering if high thermal resistance helps against either internally created heat in the ship or heat from the sun, while scooping or getting too close...

    Ships run hotter flying over planet surfaces

    So I was flying my cold ship to see if it was possible to sneak into a trespass zone without incurring fines (*spoilers* you can't) when i noticed using thrusters to move around seems to generate a lot of heat. now my ship runs with with G5 clean drives and a G5 low emissions power plant, i can...

    Looking for comments / math-warrior advice on Vette PvE setup...

    I've spent hours on Forum posts found by Google to avoid making some willy-nilly fitting that doesn't work. I'd like to see if my take-away from all these arguments is not grossly mistaken in any area :) I'll structure this into functional blocks... (Talking about speeds and guns and shields...

    Newcomer / Intro Heat damage AFTER scooping.

    As a licensed pilot and flight engineer i'd like to think I understand a little about thermal dynamics. For the life of me I can't figure out how I can set in a sweet spot and scoop all day long and not get above 75 but the second I turn tail from that spot to leave the star and start moving...

    Heated Armor Panels / Heat Module

    Heated Armor Panels / Heat Module It seems that Thargoids use weapons that are not so effective against heat. I would like to have gold plated heat panels / modules to roast the green stuff off my ship. By this I would not roast my own ship modules, but the heat will be distributed so that it...

    Heat sink in Supercruise

    Has heat sink in super-cruise some effect? Cant be interrupt or make ship invisible on map?

    Ship Builds & Load Outs FDL heat management help needed

    This is my first all encompassing retrofitting I do, since previously I only improved one module or another, not the whole ship. Since I had to unlock most of the engineers, I don’t have enough materials for G5s everything, and I quite enjoy the results so far, except heat buildup. This is what...
