zgrssd -> [1.08.05]Some issues with Airplane Fuel Consumption (4/2/2021 6:27:20 PM)

Trying to figure out the fuel Consumption of planes, I think I noticed some issues:
1. The Stated Fuel Consumption in the text and the stat on the unit card both are absolutely worthless.
I need to look at the Storage Capacity to get any usefull data for consumption at maximum range. And the cost/hex I get from actuall consumption does not add up.

However their change does seem to be linked to the actuall fuel Consumption for each model - just not in a sensible way (see 2).

2. If I double the range of a Plane, the actuall Consumption at maximum range is halved (should stay same) and Stated Fuel Consumption/Hex is doubled (should be halved).
One part is that you propably got a flipped Multiplication/Division.
The bigger problem is that the cost changes at all. 2 Airplanes both draining a 800 Unit Fueltank should both consume the same fuel operating at their respective maximum range - given that maximum range is defined as draining your fuel tank fully and the capacities are stated to be fixed.

If you have a savefile send it to me and tell me which 2 air models i should compare and investigate please. I'll take a look.

Checked it out but the Grasshopper aircraft save has a planet with 0.3g and 44% atmospheric density, while the Buzzer has a planet with 0.5g and 61% air density.
The statistics of the airplanes thus seem rather okay to me.

best wishes,
Vic

Those figures are pretty irrelevant for the problem I reported.

If I have a 800 kg Fuel tank, I should use the same fuel on maximum range - no mater if that maximum range is 1 or 20 hexes. Maxsimum (operational) Range means "I literally ran out of fuel to stay in the air any longer".
Somehow the plane with half the range is able to put 1600 kg of Fuel into a 800 kg Fuel Tank.

It also does not change that the Stated Fuel Consumption/Hex does not match the actuall fuel consumption per Hex. it is missing by an order of magnitude.
