Really confused by what a 2013 forum post here, and the wiki, are saying regarding this with regards to the relationship between the two and how to work it out
If you use the formula (perception- stealth)/50 = distance you can see the ship, that doesn't make any sense half the time
If a standard unskilled cruiser has perception of 5010 (5000×(1+(20/10,000) and an escort has stealth of 5100
(5010-5100) ÷ 50 = -1.8km
Unskilled science vessel?
(5030-5100)÷50 = -1.4km
How's it make any sense at all? How on earth are people using that calculation to get +12 etc? Or any positive numbers
Have they just failed to understand maths or have they failed to write the full formula?
And where's the auxiliary power level come in? I get that it does, but where? One post says you add aux power to stealth. Therefore 125 aux is 5125 stealth. Surely high stealth versus low perception means that i can get up close, how on earth is it so bad? High perception should mean i can see them miles off
Really appreciate clarification as to an answer
