    Newcomer / Intro Build Question about Multipurpose Hardpoints and being TOO HOT

    Hi, guys. Just joined the forum. Been playing for a month or so. Love the game. I had a question about what happens when you're demanding too much power, but the various weapons etc drawing power aren't intended to be used simultaneously. For instance, I've been looking to refit my Cobra MKIII...

    Do weapons not in the current fire group use energy?

    I'm a bit confused by energy consumption. If my warrant scanner isn't in my current fire group, does it use energy if my hardpoints are deployed? Or anything else for that matter.

    Power facilities

    I find it really frustrating how power facilities such as solar panels can’t just be placed on the roof, surely you can add some sort of system where the panels have a sphere of influence that has to be close to a battery on the ground for the mechanic to get to? And make the battery something...

    Toggle Power Usage

    I would love to see a toggle on most things that consume electricity. There are a few times already that I wish I could use certain lights as creative pieces instead of their normal function but that ramps up the electricity cost. Using lights as props makes certain buildings look pretty strange...

    Mamba Suggestion / Requirement: Size 7 Power Distributor.

    In all the load outs I've tested, one thing remains consistent: the Mamba's power distributor is wholly inadequate. This is primarily for the weapons, but I've noticed this across the systems, engines, and weapons collectively. I can point to it's closest peers: the Python, and the Krait Mk...

    Diamondback Explorer boosting with low power distributor

    Hey, I currently have a 1D power distributor fitted on my Exploration Diamondback. Of course that's not enough for boosting but how far up do I have to go? And would it be possible to equip a power distributor that won't boost stock but will boost when engineered? If yes, what distributor would...

    Powerplay Becoming a power

    I know a minor faction has become a power before so I'm wondering is it possible for any other minor factions to become a power? Say a minor faction became more powerful than the powers themselves then would that minor faction then become a power seeing as they are more powerful? I know there...

    Guardian Modules

    Guardian Power distributor screenshots or stats? Also really wish *all* experimental weapons had gimballed versions. Especially hard bringing out a big ship like the Anaconda to get fixed mounts to hit the target. Particularly with the scout. The earlier Thargaroid ships were easier to hit.

    I've been trying to find the fastest way to earn credits toward a bigger ship, other than bounty hunting in a sidewinder in High REZ zones.

    Ship lost power and now I can't get back onboard

    Why does a KW scanner eat more power than a weapon or even a shield generator? electronics?

    I find this an annoyance beyond compare. I have to calculate more power draw for a stupid KW scanner than for a Class 2 weapon (unless its a beam laser, maybe). And if I engineer it for range, it starts to weigh more than some major components on my ship. The better part of a MEGA WATT!! You...
