# 1 Stacking consoles??
05-21-2012, 03:18 PM
I did a search, so it seem that resistance and shield consoles don't stack, or if they do there is a diminishing return on stacking them. Is there a list or post anywhere listing which consoles stack and which don't?

For example if I have 3 photon torpedo consoles. that are +20% each. Will they all stack givimg me +60% base damage? What about science consoles do any of them not stack or have diminishing returns?

I don't have the numbers but no, they don't stack like that. (20+20+20=60)

They do stack but the numbers diminish with each console you stack on.

It is still however, the best way to do the most damage. So everyone stacks tactical consoles.

I use 3 to 4 phaser relays and 1 torp console usually.

yes, they do. Field gens stack 1+1, tactical consoles too.

My mistake then, but from what I read in the forums didn't they nerf that?

Like I said, I don't know the numbers.

My Tac Odyssey has three tactical console slots - actually two, since I use one for one of the special consoles, and I convinced myself to go with two phaser relays rather than a phaser relay and a quantum console, even though I do use front and rear torps to go with my six beams. My reason for that was/is that my phasers are firing a lot more than my torps are.

Am I being logical, or should I go to one phaser console and one quantum console?

I know you can just do it yourself and learn from trial and error. (which is what ive been doing)

Field Generators Stack 1+1
Tactical Consoles Stack 1+1
Eng resistence consoles stack 1+0.5+0.25

The rest of the consoles (EPS, RCS, Flow Capacitor, etc) don't know how they stack, but is very easy to find out, but usally there is no reason for stack more than one of those

So they do diminish

Thanks for the info!
