Title: After FTL 9
Post by: Chemist on August 30, 2013, 02:12:34 AM
The only reason one might have to research FTL after level 9 might to up one's completed research or spend res on useless pursuits. 

What if one had a higher FTL level and could choose fleet speeds in intervals of 5% instead of 10%.  What if even higher levels could choose intervals of 1%?

That would enable one to have a reason to research FTL to higher levels and it would make timing a prey's FRS all the more challenging!

Except FTL is needed for Warp Drive and most players use Dinos to FRS and they are JET, so FTL is a separate research field to that needed to FRS. Unless you have a Zeus with each Fleet.

I agree...

 With all the useless research fields. we should have some incentive to increase FTL, Paticle Tech and Plasma Tech levels.  It would keep the game interesting and retain players, plus bring in new players or old ones back to the game.

  Suggestions for the unused tech levels: 

FTL tech: Increase fleet speeds by 1-2% for each FTL level increase beyond 9
Plasma Tech:  Increase armor or sheild by 1%
Particle Tech:  Increase cargo space or armor by 1%.
Laser:  Increase weapons attack by 1%

what do you think???

Maybe researching FTL technology and laser technolgy a few levels could result in moving a Titan between galaxies in one hour plus the time it would take at normal speeds to move to and from uninhabited solar systems within the galaxy.  Something like this artcle I found:  http://techland.time.com/2012/09/19/nasa-actually-working-on-faster-than-light-warp-drive/ (http://techland.time.com/2012/09/19/nasa-actually-working-on-faster-than-light-warp-drive/).
