I agree. The tug/tender rules need modification.
I do think that 10% is a little low however. If you build a FTL ship
the same equipment as a non-FTL ship (including same number of hull
or 10% of ship mass, whichever is greater), you end up with a 12-30%
increase in point cost for the ships.
Here are some of Laserlight's IF ships as example:
Ship Non-FTL FTL % increase
m/c m/c mass/points
Ahdath FF 20/72 23/81 15.0/12.5
ash Shaulah 8/30 11/39 37.5/30.0
Hasan as-Sabah 31/107 37/125 19.3/16.8
Qaws CLG 60/212 70/242 16.7/14.1
Saber CL 50/168 58/192 16.0/14.2
Sala ed-Din DH 34/118 40/136 17.6/15.2
Turcoman CL 50/172 58/196 16.0/13.9
Turs DD 24/88* 28/100 40.0/13.6
And take the following FB1 ships if converted
Ship Non-FTL FTL %
m/c m/c mass/points
Maximillian 87/294 100/333 13.0/13.2
Tsiolkovsky 129/519 150/584 16.3/12.5
Ark Royal 171/708 200/798 17.0/27.1
Foch 216/805 250/909 15.7/12.9
The above averages to 16.33... % increase in points.
The amount varies with the mass taken up by the
systems and engine in relation to overall mass.
I would think that 115% multiplier would be best for non-FTL ships
that do not have the tug on the table.
* Turs is listed at mass 24 cost 91, but is optimized at 24/88 (same
equipment and hull boxes).
