# 1 The RCS changes
04-30-2013, 09:12 PM
I am quite happy with them.

On holodect my oddy has a turn rate of 12.9 degrees a second. with 2 mk XII purple RCS consoles, the tackio kinetic thing, 9 points in impulse thrusters, And an elite fleet combat impulse engine.

The same oddy on tribble gets 17 degrees a second, 17.3 with a dilithium store warp core w>e.

All in all this will really make the space barges much more playable. I can also assume that the galaxy X may start making a comeback since its base turn rate and the oddys are the same.

Tested the changes on my Assault Cruiser, Vesta and Kumari.

It's a buff across the board for each ship.

So relatively speaking, I don't think it's going to be all that big an impact. It's a nice boost, but everyone gets one.

How is it not going to have an impact. Getting a whale-cruiser to turn 50% faster is a great day for playability.

Possibly this and the EPS boosting trait are the counterweight(s) to the EPtX changes

Its supposed to have a larger effect the lower your base turn is. I didnt check it with an escort as I dont have the space on tribble to port one over. But a 4.9 degree increase is going to be a game changer for continental drift. I actualy loaded cannons on my oddy with the nukara DBB ans was able to keep them on target without black magic.

The RCS change was not that great really, but the combination with impulse trusters change DID finally have impact.

My G-X on tribble is "nimble" and compared to holodeck is does not feel like a whale. And I'm just using 1x RCS + tachyonic converter. I like the EptE change as well, as it allows nice reverse bursts or just simply means to run.

But my fear is that the high speeds will soon be subjects to nerfs as the less capable escort players will moan that the cruisers are too fast.

Eh it would nerf them as well since they are across the board changes.

Honestly I hope the devs don't listen to the whining on the forums. Most of it is unconstructive at best. The only feedback that should matter is tribble. with bug reports submitted ingame a close second and forum rants a distant third.

Not really, as most escorts do not have room for EptE + AtD for regular 100+ impulse speeds, 200 with evasive action.

I was more refering to impulse thrusters. But don't most BOP pilots also carry a coppy of EPTE? For that OHS*it im being shot at moment.
