I have a question about a discrepancy in travel times between navcomp and actual space. I am currently flying an awing. With my piloting skill (4), the navcomp tells me it should take 12 minutes to travel one coordinate over. The rules state that each level in piloting decreases travel time by 5%, so 12 minutes appears to be correct for skill level 4. However, when I actually fly one coordinate over, it takes me 12 minutes 30 seconds. My question is: is this difference a result of a rules change or is it a bug?
FWIW the Navicomp does not use the same equation to calculate distance (and therefore its ETA is different from the actual travel time, in practice). Navicomp is not giving the correct answer to a certain precision, it's just giving an answer that is 'close enough' for most of our purposes.
