I tried searching in this forum, but I couldn’t find what I’m looking for; which is why I’m creating this post.
I notice at the repair/module/ordinance kiosk that there are categories for Gravitic and Ladar modules. When I select said categories, the list is blank. I’m wondering if those particular types of modules haven’t been made available yet by the developers or if they’re not available to me because I have a ship that can’t use them. I have the standard Ceres Mark III.
Also, what do the Gravitic and Ladar modules do?
I can speculate and possibly answer my own questions. I would guess that the Gravitic module could function in a couple different ways. Maybe it can protect my ship from magnetic nebulae or EMP damage from EMP torpedoes or help hide my ship in a nebula by magnifying the cloaking effects of said nebula.
Google says this about Ladar. Since the speed of light is well known, LADAR can use a short pulsed laser to illuminate a target and then time how long it takes the light to return. The advantage of LADAR over RADAR (Radio Detection And Ranging) is that LADAR can also image the target at the same time as determine the distance.
So maybe Ladar is used in OIS as some sort of advanced targeting system.
Please feel free to weigh in.
