unit designation mid travel
« Topic Start: July 11, 2013, 02:45:29 PM »
does changing your unit into vanguard mid travel shorten your travel time?
 like if I had 10 hours and it's a 11 hour journey to Kepler and I have already started my journey, would I make it if I change to vanguard, or would it still be an 11 hour journey?

Not counting shortcuts and scouts of course.

It should do so, I believe.

This may not be properly recalculated until the turn, though. I would have to look through the code to see for sure.

The recalculation doesn't happen immediately, i can confirm that... start travel: 12 hours, change into vanguard: 12 hours

What about in the middle of multi-turn travel, after the first day's movement?

Should act exactly the same.
