Could some one explain how this works...


Starship Command gives an extra 18% to hull ect when using any kind of escort.

So....

25000 / 100 x 18 = 4500

4500 + 25000 = 29500 hull hit points


Escort captain gives you another 30% of your BASE hull.

25000 / 100 x 30 = 7500

7500 + 4500 = 12000 + 25000 = 37000


Tactical Escort gives another 52% again of your BASE hull.

25000 / 100 x 52 = 13000

1300 + 7500 + 4500 = 50000


I have all these talants and my ship hull is only 28937 <ish> it bugs in sector space.

This is for a DEFIANT.

Now my freind is a tactical officer and im an engineer is in a defiant and ONLY has starship command yet he has 29000 health O.o his also a captain 8 and im an admiral 5

Is my maths right and the numbers are just bugged at the moment or have I missed the ball all together.

HELP

I dont know if it is supposed to be this way, but the lower tiers of skills do NOT stack with the upper ones. Even the ones that appear to be 'generic' and should bonus ALL ships you fly do not appear to do so once you move to the next tier.

I'm not sure if ALL skills do this, but the Ship class specific ones seem to be.

If indeed it's so, which I doubt, then it's a bug for sure. Otherwise cryptic has messed up the point distribution BADLY.

Edit: remember though that all the buffs in this game work against a heavy diminishing return. That means that even if 52 points meant +52%, the meaning of the % would be "52% more than the base value", but something that's quite less so, though the precise formula can be found in other threads.
