comment What does the “integrity” attribute of equipment mean?
@CmdrFreiheit or to put it another way, I did nothing until I stumbled upon the evidence :-)

OK, I found some evidence!

@shaamaan no they shouldn't. While Cmdr Freiheit's guess is welcome, they themselves have indicated that it is only a guess - albeit a likely one. An answer should be more authoritative than this.

comment How is Xenodrome better than Xeno Sanctuary
If Xenodrome gives a free Xeno Sanctuary as well as 4 culture, then it gives all the benefits of a Xeno Sanctuary and also 4 culture. i.e. the total gain from Xenodrome is 1 Xenomass, 1 Energy, and 8 culture. Posting this as comment rather than answer because I don't have access to the game right now and can't verify - this is based on just reading the question...

comment how get rid of wanted tag
@CmdrFreiheit (revistiing after ages) I think there is a confusion here between fines and bounties. Fines don't stop you docking, and perhaps must be paid to the relevant faction. Bounties (being "wanted") do stop you docking - you can't get permission if you're a criminal - but can be paid off anywhere.

comment What is the highest speed possible?
Used to be that nothing could move faster than 150 - they'd set a cap due to networking issues. But I haven't played in months, so that may have changed.

comment How do I look around?
There's no default binding for keyboard. Pretty sure the default for mouse is for the middle button to toggle it.

comment Quickly turn 180 degrees?
Newtonian physics would imply that momentum is conserved. Possibly that's what you meant? In fact, though, it isn't. If you boost and turn off FA, your speed will slowly reduce to your ship's maximum speed. This game does not have fully Newtonian physics. And regardless, AFAIK there's no way to spin as fast as the ships do in the trailer.

comment Why did all my systems shut down when I deployed hardpoints?
Be careful with powering down your cargo hatch - I thought that was safe, but when I boosted away from an enemy with it turned off, all my cargo went floating out into space!

comment Why did all my systems shut down when I deployed hardpoints?
My approach to priorities is: 1. Life support (debatable); 2. Defensive stuff: Thrusters, shields, maybe sensors; 3. Weapons; 4. FSD. It's totally viable to run with a moderate power deficit, because the FSD requires quite a lot of power even when not being used - it's hard to see the downside of having the FSD powered off when hardpoints are deployed, since you can't activate it anyway. (problem for discovery scanners & interdictors, perhaps?)

@freiheit pretty sure that your docking request will be denied if you're a criminal with the faction that controls the station.

comment Why would you ever want to dash in XCOM? (Rather than making two half moves.)
I'm not sure enough of this to post it as an answer, but in addition to the defence bonus I think that dashing gives you slightly more distance than two single moves. It may be related to diagonal moves and rounding...

:-) I was about to answer, then I saw this comment. You should put it as an answer.
