Yes ship tier thing is odd the way I put it in there. You just get a 50% bonus to your base per ship tier max being at tier 5 where the base is 3 times larger. So if we break down the TSS formula for TSS III with tier 5 ship
3*166.66666 = 500 which is the base number you used. The other two parts are the same.
I did only use 99 but I think my numbers are already high. I can?t check in game at the moment.
The reason I have the ship tier modifier in there is I am planning to make an Excel spreadsheet that you can enter in skills, gear, boff, etc. and it would tell you about what your power should be at. If I didn?t use the ability or ship modifier I would need to find 15 different base numbers. And more when they raise the lvl cap.
