[Suggestion] Return speed for craft
« on: September 11, 2023, 01:59:09 pm »
I'd like a parameter for craft that controls their speed when returning from a ground mission or from running out of fuel.

Yeah, this is pretty realistic, I fighter jet can fly faster on return with more fuel and less fuel efficient, but when it reaches "Low Fuel" it would then "have to" fly at a set slower speed to be fuel efficient to return to base.

1/ what is the purpose of this change?

2/ changing speed changes also fuel consumption, which changes flight range... i.e. craft is low on fuel and starts returning, but actually isn't low on fuel anymore...
