# 1 RCS Console is bugged.
04-02-2012, 06:26 PM
At the behest of someone claiming that the RCS console does nothing for the Odyssey, I decided to look at the numbers closely. I've got a Purple Mk 12 version, so it should be adding 40% of my base turn rate, which, in the Odyssey, should be 2.4 degrees. Well, it was only adding half of that, 1.2 degrees.

Are you checking this in sector space, or system space? Consoles only apply their bonuses in a system.

I am not stupid. Its only adding half its bonus in the situation where it adds its bonus. Futhremore, how I could I even state it was only adding Half its bonus in Sector Space? It would show NO BONUS in sector space.

dont there giving x% only to the basestatus so in sectorspace you have consoles+ skills but the consoles dont give the bonus the the skills only to the ship base value.

Maybe I need to spell out every little detail.

The Odyssey has a base turn rate of 6 in System space when moving at least 1/4 impulse.
The RCS Console I was using was a +40% version. That means my turn rate should increase by 2.4 points when I equip it and move at least 1/4 impulse.
When I equip it, my turn rate only increased by 1.2 points when moving at least 1/4 impulse.

Thus, it is bugged, either in the tooltip, or the effect.

As a matter of fact they are pretty much useless on any ship. I've tried diff variants of some ships and the max I could gain is about 1.5. It's a complete waste of useable space.
They should make a lot less consoles with some real useful features.
For example combine some consoles, that are a pain to get, but actually gives you some value of play time.
