Solar concentrator?

#1 Post by 4xel » Sun Apr 21, 2019 6:59 pm

Playing v0.4.7.1

How does it works, specifically?

The differences between say RIS article and solar concentrator/solar web are striking.

The former is concise clear explanation followed by paragraph of sci-if blabla. The later have them both blended. I can't even say if living hull are necessary for the base bonus. I can't say if solar web bonus of "up to 130%" is accounting for the base bonus, or aother multiplier. It is ambiguously worded as if the effect stack, which would be exceptional in this game and would deserve being disambiguated, as regular things are. I can even read solar web as "it does not matter where the concentrator are in the system, al organic ship will receive the effect, even those without SC".

I'll wait your input or do some test and propose a better wording. I'm new to this so I'm not sure exactly how to go about it, I suppose it involves github and proposing an edit of a .txt somewhere.

Certainly, the description needs polishing.

The exact effect of it is scripted in here.

Only organic hulls with SC benefit from it. The actual equation (without the extra factor from the star type):

Code: Select all

max(
    min(
        min(
            (([[COUNT_OF_LOCAL_SOLAR_CONCENTRATOR]]) / 2),
            (([[COUNT_OF_LOCAL_SOLAR_CONCENTRATOR]]) ^ 0.5 ) + 4 ),
        15)
,3)

Ok, it work just like RI:S. I made a detailed answer explaining my foundings (through the option shows generated description) but forum decided to ask me my password and ditch it :x

I guess one could copy the style of RI:S then to polish the description.
