updates in the most recent build (3105)

* can no longer run more than one afterburner at once
* can no longer run MWD and AB together
* oversized AB performance is no longer as insane as it was... in addition, it appears ship with oversized AB running is less agile (takes longer to turn etc) than the same ship running the regular MWD ... it could be just false impression am getting since the oversized AB was supposed to become like this. ^^;;

'real' performance of Kestrel:

* base speed: 312.5 m/sec
* with regular AB: 581.9 m/sec
* with oversized AB: 1194 m/sec
* with MWD: 1590.9 m/sec

From testing with a tristan and a brutix it appears that:

1MN modules add 500,000 kg to the base mass

10MN modules add 5,000,000 kg to the base mass

100MN modules add 50,000,000 kg to the base mass

Hence the increases in thrust by a factor of 1.5. An interesting solution by CCP, simple but reasonably elegant.

One downside to this solution is that the lighter ships within a class will get more benefit from the oversized module than the heavier ships in the class.

e.g.

A frigate with a base mass of 800,000 kg with an oversized AB will have a mass of 5,800,000 kg, and so receive a boost of: 105% x 15,000,000/5,800,000 = 271%

A frigate with a base mass of 1,200,000 kg with an oversized AB will have a mass of 6,200,000 kg, and so receive a boost of: 105% x 15,000,000/6,200,000 = 254%

One could argue that the light ship should get the greater benefit from the speed module, but I find it odd that under this system the lightest ships will get greater benefit from oversized modules than ships such as destroyers, which you could argue are closer in terms of class to cruisers.

Very interesting, nonetheless.
