Or are Romulan ships restricted to only using Singularity cores and are not permitted to equip standard warp cores?
simply dont load the buttons and/or never use them.

You may have the wrong idea about the singularities, They are mostly just BO skills that you get without having to have a BO trained in the skill with slight tweaks. IMO its simply boils down to free phototic shockwave, EPtW, photonic fleet and then a jump which one of the already existing console skills.

I do believe you could continue to use your mk 0 core. No fun will happen. Don' t understand why you'd run a mk0 on an otherwise mkxii ship, though.

Where does it say Fed or KDF can use singularity cores?

Under this new engine/core concept, how will this be retroactively implemented on lockbox ships, C-store ships and Fleet ships (other than just slapping on a base-level version, which may be the only recourse)?

Of course, what kind will be made available thru mission rewards (either first time or replay)?

Question:
If
the KHG set doesn't have a warp speed boost and
the MACO set has a warp speed boost and
The new warp mechanic will allow both ships to travel at the same speed does that mean that
The MACO gets a "nerf"?

Don't mind me. I ask because I always thought it was unfair that the feds get a warp speed boost and the KDF don't with their perspective sets.

The way it worked on Tribble when I tested it a while ago is the warp speed from the Borg Engine an the MACO are independent of the Warp Core in use.

I could still fly around with no warp core if I had either of them equipped [for instance].

I did not have a warp core that provided the same base speed as either Borg or MACO engines though [at least I don't think I did], so I wasn't able to see how they would interact if the warp core provided a greater speed than the engine.

In any event, it wouldn't so much be a nerf as just an addition of another way to achieve that perk.

So what does this mean for MACO/Adapted KHG, fleet and Borg engines that have a sector space speed boost and Omega that has a transwarp cooldown bonus?

I was under the impression, part of the reason for making warp cores was to shunt those bonuses off the engines so we don't need a seperate set of traveling gear.

On a side note, maybe the next lockbox ship or two should use a singularoty core (and unique singularity powers, not just copies of the rommulan stuff)

We decided to re-scale Warp Speed, bringing down the visual display of speed to honor the canonical speed limit of Warp 10, while increasing the speed at which players are actually moving. This means captains moving at Warp 10 will now reach their destinations more quickly than they could before.
You're STILL doing it wrong.

Warp 9.999 is the canonical Maximum Warp in the TNG era recalculated warp factor. Once you hit Warp 10...you turn into a lizard *cough cough* Tom Paris.

In normal warp travel, Warp 10 was the action of achieving infinite velocity, thereby occupying all points in space simultaneously.

Now between TNG proper and "All Good Things" it is possible another recalc was done on the warp travel matrix, however, that timeline never came to pass, therefore it's not canon, and neither DS9 nor VOY provided canonical proof of a recalc either.

Warp 9.999 is maximum warp. If you are going to fix it from being wrong at launch, at least fix it right!
