When I tried to create a very fast moving scout and finally built it, it's speed was much lower than I thought it should.
In the ship designer window, it's speed was around 27 PC/WK. A bit extreme, but I was planning it as an emergency defense for my extremly long border. Immense maps are fun!
However, when I finally built the ship its speed was a hogish 5 PC/WK. A single engine could do that, let alone the 3 or 4 engines on that ship.
Tested this alittle further; dedicated a ship to moving as fast as it can. 37 PC/WK was all the rage. Built it, and its speed was also a granny 5 PC/WK.
So; why is there a max limit on the speed? Is there a way to modify this? Any bad things that will happen if I do this?
