Why do all the consoles give you less than there face value when you equipped them, sorry if this have been asked and answered before, I might have missed it. For example I have engineering hull console (canít remember the name) that states that is adds +25% damage resistance to Antiprotons and Plasma based attacks; however, when I equipped the console, I only get 19% resistance to Antiprotons and Plasma based attacks. I can have 2 consoles that have 22% resistance to Disruptors equipped on my Cruiser and still only end up with something like 34% resistance to Disruptors. Iíd also like to know why my attack tab on all my vessels seems to give little to no valuable information about my actual attack strength?
As I understand it, the +X% is +X% of what you have already. I.e. if you have 10% resist and you get a +50% resist boost, it only goes to 15% not 60% (50% of 10 is 5, 10+5=15). I could be wrong, but that is how it was explained to me.
