I noticed with a speeder that, in a regular terrain, to get from one corner to another, it takes:
200 km/h = 13 minutes
400 km/h = 7 minutes
Fair and good. But, it also takes:
600 km/h = 7 minutes
1000 km/h = 7 minutes
1500 km/h = 7 minutes
So what's the deal? Obviously I should need less time going 3x as fast as beforehand (1200 km/h over 400 km/h), not the same time. Otherwise, it does not make sense to even have a vehicle that goes more than 400 km/h. So why is this so?
4.1 Ground Movement Calculations
Ship Speed: Maximum 200 km/h
Vehicle Speed: The maximum speed for vehicles is 200 km/h (or less if the vehicle speed is lower) when inside a city. Vehicles can use their full speed when outside a city.
Character/NCP Speed: Characters and NPCs may move at a speed between 4 and 24km/h. (4 *(Speed Skill + 1))
Distances: Each grid square within a City/Terrain is a 2km x 2km area (44km x 44km Total)
Time to Move: Distance / Speed
Aborting Ground Movement: Travel on the ground can be aborted at anytime, it is instant, and you will stop at the square you are currently in. Travel is also aborted if the pilot leaves or boards a ship or vehicle within the ship/vehicle. ”
Edit: This has been fixed, wait for sync. (I added new high res timer for speeds over 400 km/h.)
Edit: I tried it out, and it indeed still does not work. The ETA in the travel screen (where you choose coordinates and speed) is correctly updated, but the actual ETA that is there when I hit "Go" is still at 7 minutes for anything above 400 km/h.
