Thanks for clarification ! Hope to see my old resistances back soon ! But it might not hurt to show both values actually.

Personal preference would be a "more informative option" (preferably displaying both resist value and the derived percentage), but I can live with a simple reversion.

Thank ye Bort.

An actual numeric value would be more useful if it also displayed the possible maximum. I have no idea what that would be offhand. But say something like 75/200 instead of just 75 would be much more informative in and of itself.

Thank you for the clarification Bort.

Also, I've posted feedback on the inability to display the Shield Regen of all shield types in the status window.

For example, Borg Shield regen is visible but MACO Shield Regen is not.

To my knowledge, it has not yet been confirmed that this is a known issue.




I'm not sure if this is a UI, Systems or Engineering/Programming request, but as we have hull resistances would it be possible to have shield resistances also visible?

To be completely fair there is no place in game that I know of that explicitly explains how resists function.

Not exactly in-game, but hope it helps.

Note that is only for hull resist. Shields are different

Thank you for the update, borticus. I think most of us agree that an option to see both the resistance ratings and the resistance percentages would be best. But if that is not possible, then we would prefer to see the resistance percentages.

EXACTLY!

If I see something is 20% I can easily figure that out. But when its a made up rating I have no clue what that means. Like 100 would obviously be better than a 75 but the difference is meaning less. It could be 10% better or 2% better. who knows

+1 for "more informative" option.
