Fuel Estimation Errors


Starships —> Fuel —> Fuel Consumption Details —> Fuel Estimation Errors

All starships use neutronium for fuel. When a starship is moved, it will usually consume fuel. The estimated amount of fuel consumption is displayed in the Movement section of the Starship Interface Pane. That estimate has errors. Some of those errors are intentional, and some are bugs. This page categorizes and describes the various known errors in the fuel usage estimate.

Bugs

The following fuel estimation errors are considered to be bugs. This is because they involve a single starship with little or no external interaction. As such, they can be resolved without major difficulty.

Non-bugs

While all of these actions can cause fuel estimation errors, they all involve interaction with external objects (planets or foreign starships). Because of that interaction, the actual change in mass either isn't known, or can become excessively complex to determine.
