Adaptive Thermals

Post by Pavane » Wed Nov 06, 2013 10:01 pm

I just researched Adaptive Thermals (C3) for the first time. I expected to see a new tick box in the Ship Design screen, like Reflective Coating, but it is not there. Is this automatic for all ships, or is it broken? The Wiki text says: "This advanced polymer can coat any hull and is used for broadcasting blending IR signatures, decreasing the ship's signature by 25%".

My understanding is it reduces passively - unlike Stealth Armor (which also reduces signature and I *think* stacks) which is an armor option.

its intrinsic...a coat of very smart paint does not require an armor rework ;)
