Hi all

I've fitted the Witchdrive injectors and now am far happier as I can blast away from "j" drive tailgaters. However (and this could be psychosomatic) it does seem to increase hull degradation?

I'm in the early stages of a new game (still money piling around Leesti/Diso) and cannot find a repair facility - can anyone help with the names of a few G1 stations that give thios facility on F3?

Thanks!

Main stations will offer a maintenance service in the Equip Ship screen once your hull has degraded enough. You don't need to look for any special repair facility.

I think you mean serviceLevel. This is not affected by Injectors but hyperjumps to another system and received hits without shields in combat.

Maintenance overhaul will be offered in the equipment shop in any system with at least techlevel 7 when your ship reach an enough wrong state.

Ah, so I can't call it up and must just wait until it's offered? Thank you! I'll stop looking and enjoy flying now. :D

One thing I always wondered about this, does the game engine care if the Witchspace jump is generated by your own ship versus bumming a lift on some NPC's wormhole? Does the service level drop just from passing through Witchspace? Can you extend the shelf life of your vessel by hitch-hiking?

When it IS offered, before taking them up on the offer, check to see what's the highest Tech-Level system in the region, and get it done there, if practical to do so. The higher the TL your servicing is done at, the better the job they do, and the longer it will be before it needs doing again. A high TL service immediately before trading your ship in for another will ensure you get the maximum possible trade-in value for your old ship, too.

That's brilliant advice, thank you!
