    Yes large ship batteries are the same with biger out/input and storage.
    You can actually calcualte the howl thing a little faster. Thats why companies introduced the Wh unit. If you have 1.08 MWh and an output of 4.32MW you can simply divide the two.

    time till depleded = 1.08MWh / 4.32MW = 0.25h = 15min

    Be carefull if the prefixes (Mega, Kilo ...) are the same.

    to ALL:
    I have a question if this is a bug: I can not shut down the remote contoroll or the Cryochamber. The Cryochamber says it is not powered but I can not activate or deactivate it. Same for all cockpits but I assume this is planed

    Well, it's the day before patchmas. I am looking forward to what ever comes tomorrow. Weather it be planets, bug fixes or new blocks and features. I just hope it doesn't work me out as late as last thurday.

    We got 930 replies to the last forum. Was that because more people were online for that one or because there was more time before the e release? Maybe both.

    The cryochamber has no on/off switch. It's probably like that so you can't just switch off the chambers and murder your whole crew in their sleep :p

    looking forward to Patchmas really hope theyve sorted out refinaries and Arc Furnace - but what I really need is help with the Batteries - as they said in the update (from what I gather) is you can now charge and use at the same time (like your everyday smartphone) which really would make my life better for my base. Or have I got the wrong end of the stick!

    And what is with the remote controll do they only draw energy when used? The chambers actually make sence.

    @slr321: In theory the batteries work now as the one in your smartphone. BUT they don't. Last time I checked they somehow do not use all the available power or even discharge when there is enought solar power. Or lets say they do not always do that. And the best was that if there is more than one it is possible that they try to charge eachother creating effectiffly a fast way to drain them all.

    New to the forums, but not to SE. Finally decided to register. I am very excited with the direction Keen is taking with the recent changes. I am very eager to start building on planets, and can't wait to see those space bugs up close. However, I'm stuck with a lot of you waiting for some bug fixing, so I can resume playing. It is the best of times, it is the worst of times...

    So that's it. Nice to meet you all.

    I can't wait to throw some ships at planets and see what happens. Or try out an orbital bombardment cannon. "Slag rain wasn't on the forces, wad it?" "There goes the neighborhood, ( I really want to play with nukes now)

    I thought to myself, I finally have a purpose for all that stone... As a kinetic weapon from orbit :)

    Check yourube. One of the earliest big builds was a huge gravity cannon that lobbed a slider of stones as long as a ship at a several layer heavy armor target. The stones did a shrapnel effect inside the armor creating initial and secondary damage. Sure the damage was extremely lagged but the destruction on a planet could possibly do the same thing. Leave the surface intact, but flack the hell out of the spiders.

    Hear-hear!

    There's too much bitching about this or that breaking and "Keen is a bunch of untalented dildos"

    I'm still having a blast playing with the new doors and the new thrusters. Come on guys, if something in Survival is a little broken just go design something in Creative.

    I come to this forum to find ideas and news -- yes, tell us your experiences (good or bad), but let's quit badmouthing the devs, okay? I just don't want to see that in this forum.

    I swear, if I were a game dev I'd have my forum mods just delete and ban the bad-mouthers and their crap. Sure, report what's broken and discus issues, but the minute it gets to bad-mouthing my dev team, you're gone. Freedom of speech is one thing but you don't get to be a dick in MY HOUSE.


    Survival is working okay for me right now, though I haven't been using my reefers much as I've got piles and piles of refined ores already. Mostly I've been in Creative mode designing my ideal capital ship.

    She's glorious. 155 meters long, uses a mix of ion and hydrogen thrust, has a full hangar bay and functional drone fabber. Also, I've built some torpedos that are scary effective. They wreck ships too effectively, doesn't leave any loot. Still, built in a small torpedo bay, so my cap ship has a complement of 6 torpedos to go with its fighters and bombers.

    I'm having tons of fun, guys.

    this game is my fav at the moment! i play hours in creative to build my ship better every day! with the timeblocks and sensors you really can create amazing logical systems.

    if survival is broken....fool around a bit. you can create insane stuff in creative mode:D

    I hope they fix refineries not refining. That would be swell. I recently started up in survival for the first time in ages and the refinery thing was a bummer.

    @Artemis40A4: Thanks for letting me know as I thought I was going mad but for now I have had to turn my batteries off as they were just charging each other rather than being a useful power supply. Lets hope they get round to fixing it at some point in the near future.

    Alright guys, turn the hype train off. It's just going to get derailed and everyone is going to whine about it not being planets.
    Pfft, who needs bug fixes?

    Power overloaded, shields at maximum, emergency generators are on standby. Security teams are at their stations, engineering reports that F5 is armed and ready.

    Also on their stream from a couple weeks ago, they did hint at the fact that something about water would be talked about later?
