Indicator that shows battery drain/s per key binding


Gaben

Suggestion

Some sort of UI that shows how long the current set-up's battery will last or take to deplete when keeping Left Click / Right Click /Mouse 3 / F etc... depressed. Also some way of knowing what the recharge rate is of the batteries in the current drone.

This would also be very useful, and easier to implement, for fuel. However, memorize these values and don't worry about either issue again.

Reference: 1 fuel/energy cell = 1 Single Block's worth of space being taken up by a fuel/energy storage block that regenerates.

Fuel:

2 small thrusters = 1 fuel cell

1 normal thruster = 1 fuel cell

1 VTOL = 1 fuel cell

4 Jump thrusters = 3 fuel cells (its usage is not a multiple of 4)

1 Dynamic Thruster <= 1 fuel cell (basically it uses 8 fuel if at maximum thrust)

1 Afterburner = 10 fuel cells

Energy:

1 Shield = 4 energy cells

1 Heater/Cooler <= 20 energy cells (its usage is equal to its strength, and it outputs that)

1 Small Magnet = 2 energy cells

1 Big Magnet = 5 Energy Cells (oddly enough, usage does not change with radius OR strength)

1 Saw = 2 Energy Cells

1 Drill = 1 Energy Cell

1 Resource Collector = 1 energy cell

Ranged Weapons are where it gets tricky, because the maximum is only attained after 4 or 10 seconds, and IS NOT DISPLAYED AT ALL (and thus I assume not calculated), however ranged weapons can go from 0 energy cells ([any weapon] with both energy efficiency upgrades (20%+80%=100%)) to a maximum of 9 (sniper (15) with minigun (+200% after 4 seconds) and no energy efficiency upgrades). These are obviously extreme cases, and usually will stay at about 2-3 for most ranged weapons.
