In Beta on the ICC assault dread if I fire all of the lasers at once the energy almost instantly drains to 180-160 from 400. This does not occur when I fire the lasers sequentially so that not all of them are shooting at once and it does not occur if I omit the lasers from my firing rotation. Is this a known glitch of some kind or are the lasers on ICC supposed to take up that much energy when they are all fired at once?

its the same with luth disruptors too, people are gonna have to learn to fire beams in groups insted of all at once like before.

I do not mean that they are using up a lot of energy because they are coded that way. I mean that the energy drain that the lasers are taking are not matching up to what is displayed on the tooltips.

This could be due to our mirror server problems currently (not keeping beta synced properly). I'll double check with Faustus, as all energy simulation is currently out of wack...

Yeah this is very likely the sync issue, I've been having it with several ships.

Any idea why energy simulation is so buggy at the moment?
When you first fire, you begin to drain gradually, but then suddenly 50% or more of your energy just vanishes.

I have a similar issue in release. When I fly the Picket Destroyer, the server is constantly kicking the energy back as it recharges, so it takes 3 times longer than it should to fully recharge.

Even without sync problem, beam in beta is already noticeable for its excessive energy hunger.

The Mirror Server keeps the beta server and clients in sync with updates, and Faustus believes it's not doing that correctly, meaning everyone could have different file versions.

Would this also explain the issue with missile and fighter launch failures?

Try firing missiles as soon as you can after they recharge. No missile will launch, yet the cooldown begins, and from the looks of it, the energy drains too.
Also, missiles stopped working entirely when I got through about 50% of my ammo.

I had a similar issue with fighters. Using a scout cruiser, I could only launch 2 wings of interceptors (normally 3), and the next launches all resulted in a cool down, but nothing actually being fired.

Any way of doing a checksum to see that everything is synced properly?
