engine buffing
« on: March 06, 2013, 06:56:52 pm »
im not sure if its a glitch or if it has something to do with the buffing mechanics, but when a broken engine is buffed and remaines broken some of its functionality seems to return. 

for example my squid had all of its engines broken, and the engi buffed them all instead of repairing them, and i was abel to turn and move forwards / backwards slightly

so does the buff hammer give a 25% boost to the current output of the engine, or 25% of its maximum output?

I might be wrong but I don't think you can buff a broken component

You can certainly buff a broken component, I'm just not sure if that it has any effect.

Well, according to Ccrack it had some little effect.. I guess that's a bug, though. I can't imagine it's intended that you're able to turn with broken engines if they're buffed :P

That's how I troubleshoot all my issues.... Kick it, and then throw it out the window :P
