    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...

    Proposal for stealth mechanic improvements The current model for silent running leaves little incentive or opportunity for use outside of specific activities in specific situations like smuggling or PVP. Some of this may have to do with game balancing and some may have to do with very limited...

    High class sensor buff

    Dear FD, I would like to strongly suggest that high class sensors be immune to chaff and silent running so that big ships are finally viable in PvP again. E.g. 8A sensors should be completely immune and lower class sensors less, accordingly. Right now, there is practically no difference...
