Question regarding ranges inside systems?
« on: November 10, 2010, 10:24:07 AM »
Okay here is the scenario.  I build a couple of 25 scale light frigates that each had dual lasers in the stardard size with targeting sensors on them to make extended range lasers.  I had roughly 6 of them built at the time the system they were in were attacked by pirates. 

Now given that the range on the lasers were 70 and the extended range increased this to 105.  How far is it across these system?  Reason I am asking is this frigates didnt pursue anything.  They just pivoted and slaughtered the pirate ships before the traveled any significant distances.  This was my first attempt at using the extended range of weapons. 

Im not complaining but is this a fair representation of how small the individual star systems are compared to the ranges of the weapons on these ships?

Ohh the game was setup for standard galaxy with 150 systems.  Nothing special.

You can hold alt while selecting/hovering over a ship to see a circle indicating their maximum firing range. That might help you.
