Description
Makes fuel cells smaller so capital ships can store 4 times more and, therefore, jump 100 times (instead of 25) with a full load. This is less cheaty alternative to the "no Jump Fuel for Player Ships" mod.

This is a part of w.evans MICT Mod (http://forum.egosoft.com/viewtopic.php?t=377825) from whom the idea originates.

Version:
*1.0

Known issues:
*None.

Mod Incompatibilities:
*None.

X:RB Version
*4.3

Savegame compatible:
*Yes

Future work:
*None

Feedback and bugreports are welcome.

Great mod works for 4.0 as well. Although (per fuel cell) is technically not correct since it still costs 100 fuel cells you can just store more.

yes

so this change the fuel ware volume from 4 to 1, while no change to the capital ship fuel storage capacity?

Hey Deluzion,

It's possible to build fuel stations in vanilla. At least with Albion CVs. Pretty sure with Omicron Lyrae CVs too.

thanks walker, that make a little more sence now. i guess i didnt think about the economy much, but that brings up another question, i know theres a mod that lets you build ship yards, but is there anything that lets you build fuel stations?

@Walker
Just so people see that you are an author of the mod.
Sadly, Steam doesn't give coauthors more rights...
Can you come online? i have a question :)

Uh oh. I'm a contributor? What does that mean?

Of course not!

@Deluzion, I don't think it's possible to directly reduce fuel consumption per jump without hacking the exe. There's a switch available per jump: to use fuel, or to jump without using fuel; but it looks like the amount of fuel used per jump is completely internal.

Interestingly, each jump uses 100 fuel cells regardless of where you jump. So vanilla jumps to a neighboring sector, a hacky jump from Maelstrom to Albion, and an in-zone jump to get to an advantageous position to fire the IHC all use 100 fuel cells per jump.

It is possible to work around it by giving the ship 90% of its fuel cells back after making a jump, but I feel that 100 jumps per full tank of fuel is already plenty, but others might not feel that way. Also, decreasing fuel consumption will reduce over-all demand for fuel cells per amount of time.

@janda, Hope you don't mind my answering Deluzion's question on your thread.
