How fast are your ships going?
I'm just wondering if I'm doing it wrong. I try to focus on building merchant haulers and the like, and they consistently go about .28km/s, what about you guys?

Try pressing "t" also add the engines subsystems with the max forward speed and boosters.
You should get around 1-2 km/s for a fast ship and under 1 km/s for a slow one.

i can climb at 1-2 km pers and reach well over 1000km/s easy and still climb

That's is only after your kinetic field is on. Which, doesn't count.

the fastest I gone is 1 000 017m/s with "T" travel speed on, with a Light Fighter with 2 engine that have Engine III on them. But I only it max speed after 30min of flying.

With or without the kinetic boost thingy?

In Warp 10 I'm going at about 102,000 M/S even in a light craft when I used the "T" function.

However, as standard trundling speed, off about 60 level 1 engines, I've pushed a Heavy Fighter up too 3,500 M/S. That's without weapons or armour though since that all add's to mass which reduces top speed.

That craft was horrible too look at from the rear lol. In standard view, before zooming out, all you could see was a wall of engines and absolutely nothing else.

I dont know what you mean. My Light Fighter has a mass of 240 and a forward thrust of 2000, it has weapo and shield, with it sensor, and the kinetic field generator. I made the ship as light as possible as to keep it classification as light fighter which it a mass of 250 and less but still be usable as a cheap fighter, and I decided to test how fast it could go and got up to 1 000 017m/s by only pressing the "T" button.

My most recent project (D11 patch) , the Mediator-class 'Bluebird" Frigate can almost hit 1Km/s (Which honestly, looks more like 10m/s when I'm flying past the asteroid mining bases.) That's with KF off, of course.
