Hello, Looks like the new volume (and eventually CPU) implementation have severely (understatement) divided this otherwise pretty cohesive family. I'm hoping with a little time Eleon will make it all gel in a way that works. This does bring us to the next potential hurdle somewhere over the horizon; CPU. It would be great if we could get an updated official comment on what the drawing board ideology is on this feature (hint). But with this absent, I have been looking at some of my builds and seeing how it might affect them. There are a couple theories I had on how this could be a plus, but I would invite you to offer your thoughts and suggestions too, What do you think? If the plan is to stop a builder from just pasting 900 turrets, constructors, or mining lasers on a ship for example, I suppose that makes sense from an immersion sense (since we can't say realism right? they don't exist yet?). Does this mean we could toggle some equipment on/off as needed to stay under the max load at once? I'd be alright with that. If it means you can't even place equipment over the max, I don't care for it. Working in an industrial environment we have spare and backup equipment and also cannot run all. In the case that you are allowed to expand the max CPU, that could be a challenging mechanic to work with. Such as, to expand the Max CPU, you need to install a Mainframe, which uses a LOT of power. Now you have to add more power generation, fueling, and deal with the added mass of all that infrastructure to make it work. This would seem to have the effect of automatically limiting ships; if they were big enough to run all that with big DPS, they would be rather sluggish, while a lighter, leaner ship had less DPS but could easily outmaneuver the larger ship. Something along those lines seems to be a workable system. Hopefully there will be alternate forms of power and some power storage options at some point too, this would allow you to run your Mainframe and extra weapons/shield generator/equipment for a short period, while battery banks provided the additional current needed, without all that fuel cell and extra generator mass, again a trade off but added workable angle and option for a builder. Anyhoo, was kicking this around and wanted to share it with the family. What do you think? Cheers.
