1) Shields will recharge at fixed speed long if there is power at SYS pip, you can check at module stats how many mj/sec are rechargin. Having 4 or 0 pips does not affect speed recharge at all, you just need power at SYS that is being drained to keep up with recharge. Also, at supercruise, recharge speeds are doubled.I have 2 questions that I think I know the answer to, should know the answer to.
When I've finished bashing some pirate up, I'm collecting the mats, to recharge my shields more effectively, I need to fill the System PIPS, right?
If I have used synthesised ammo, I'm now about half full, maybe a third, If I reload in a station, I lose that bonus ammo, right?
Thank you in advance for answering me and mocking me.
2) Premium ammo bonus lasts until reload at station. So youre right, once reloaded by station, you will need apply premium again to have its advantage.
