In the patch on tribble on may 15th this was a change made:
The minimum power level of any subsystem has been reduced to 15.
i tested it straight away and can confirm its for FED's and not just romy ship only.
personally i think its a great idea i love tinkering with subsystem settings to gain the most out of my ship and i think this will go someway to aid the endeavor.
i still dont think its enough, i really think due to the way in which bonus power is calculated we should have MUCH more control over our settings rather than the +5 -5 we have at the moment, maybe without a better UI we could not expect +1 -1 i think that +3 -3 would be fair and allow us a little more customization, as its so annoying that we might get our weapon power to 124 and HAVE to spend 5 more power, 4 of which cant be used, OR waste zen retraining skills to get that extra 1 point or lose 4 points.
has this question been raised before? if so what was the outcome?
if it hasn't and due to new ui changes in LOR could it not be possible?
