In every space combat I start my crew always starts at 10% capacity, they are all injured or dead. This has been happening for several days now, is there something I can equip to fix this or is this just a big F^ by the Devs?
It has always been this way. You need to sit in space for a bit regaining crew.
The real screwup is the crew loss. A couple of torpedoes hitting your hull = your entire crew is dead because crew loss is based on a % equation. So ships with 100 crew or 4000 crew lose their crews to the same number of torps.
..worse yet, force fields and other such modules dont work. Your crew still dies like crazy no matter how many you stack up.
