If I pilot a Frigate, Gunboat, or Corvette does it take any skill into account?

Like when you pilot a Capital or Freighter and your skills help you travel more efficiently.

Just wondering.

Yes, Fighter/Freighter skill impacts your traveling time.
If I am not mistaken it affects both Hyper and Sublight travel.

You can change the skill in the upper left corner. You will see a huge difference depending on the skill. But the hyperspeed of a ship will still have the biggest affect on your travel time. No amount of skill can weigh up for a fast ship.


Skill 1 HS 1
Long route takes 20 days

Skill 5 HS 1
Same route takes 17 days

Skill 1 HS 5
Same route takes 4 days

Skill 5 HS 5
Same route takes 3 days

So skill does not have particularly big outcome.
Go for a fast ship. But skill impacts RP value though ;)


Which Death is preferable to any other? 'The Unexpected.'

But an unskilled dude with no crew could potentially drive a stardestroyer though.
Don't ask =P

The two freighter classes, gunboats and fighters use the freighter/fighter pilot skill. All the other classes of ships (super cap, capital, frigates and corvettes) use the capital ship pilot skill.

Also, you do not need to have any skillpoints invested in the piloting skills to be able to fly a ship.

Skill currently only shortens your travel times.

Minimum pilot skill for certain ships, that would be nice.

No, no it would not.

Each point in Fighter/Freighter Piloting, Capital Ship Piloting and Vehicle Piloting reduces travel time 5% for the relevant entity.
