I'm currently looking at the Prowler in EFT, and punching my skills into it gives me a base velocity of 289m/s. Now if I switch to the "All level V" skills setting, it's base velocity goes up to 480m/s Shocked My Navigation is maxed so the velocity should be the same, afaik...

I guess my question is: what skills am I overlooking that would affect the ships velocity? Or is there something else I'm missing?

Do you have armor rigs on the fit and just L1 armor rigging ?
Or do you have some snakes (or other speed implants) selected on the "all L5" character ?

or perhaps acceleration control?

Has to be something like this. Thought it might have something to do with training the trasport ships skill to lvl5, but that would never make such a huge difference. Better still, you need navigation V and transport ships V to get a prowler to fly 289m/s (185*1.25*1.25). However a Shaqil's speed enhancer (+8%) and a full set of snakes(+3%) will push a Prowler to 480m/s. So better check if the level char has those implants in his head.

He was talking about base velocity, i.e. no ab or mwd, and you need one of those fitted for acceleration control to have any use. Also a single ab, without acceleration control, would speed up a 289m/s prowler to about 580m/s, 100 more than what he got.

Hehe. Well, case closed. Embarassed

It was a set of Snakes I added to my All Level V a few months ago for a little experiment then totally forgot about.

Hehe, for those experiments I always have separate characters created in EFT. Just go to your EFT directory into the characters subdirectory, and copy "All level V.chr" to something else (like "All level V snaked.chr"), and use this as your experimenting clone.

As a side-note, I also keep an "All level IV" char to see the stats of a ship on "average" skills. To do that, just copy the All level V file as above, open in notepad, and just replace every occurence of "=5" with "=4". Will of course lead to EFT displaying a red bar when using T2 guns or something, but I find that the numbers are helpful when trying to outfit a ship you're about to fly more than All level V.

(Edit: of course, don't only look at the All level IV char, but compare it to your real one, and see if you are below or above average, and then start planning your skilltraining for that ship).
