Ship specifications

Post by evilblade »

Can I somehow see the specifications of the ships that are for sale at a station? Or better yet - view them in comparison to the one's I currently own?
And yes, I know there's a way to see ship's specifications in F4 screen, but thing is - there's only one ship of each class in there while on sale there's usualy several variants of them. The question is - if there's some button to view the specs of selected exact one?

I think there's not. You can save game, buy ship, note specifications, reload game.

The [EliteWiki] Ship Comparison OXP allows you to compare the specs of up to three different ships at once. It might be more like what you're after.

I thought that was what was being referenced in the original post, actually.

phkb suggestion is the best I know of, additional information would require to offer all available standard equipment in all combinations which, in my opinion, would give you more than you asked for. :wink:

To clarify, the differences between ships of the same model are usually just cosmetic and which equipment comes pre-installed... unless you use an OXP like ShipVersion, in which case you can't tell what the version is before buying the ship.

Well, to clarify - I was wondering should I change the standard Cobra Mk.III wich I had from the start to the Miner (or Mining) Cobra Mk.III. Now, I saw it had much more TC right away from F3F3 screen, but I was wondering about everything else like energy-generators, shields, weapons, etc.. But nevermind actually, I found all the info I was looking for in the Wiki :)

Thanks, phkb, I'll look into this add-on..
