There is a small amount of confusion on my part as to how the delay mechanic works.
Here’s a reference image:
Does this mean that:
- I will arrive at L, and then wait 4 hours to navigate to K
- I will arrive at L and proceed immediately to K, where I will wait 4 hours to return to L
If you modify, and save, the delay time while you are delayed at a star, does the timer reset? Does it keep track of how long you’ve already delayed, and if the difference is greater, send you on your way immediately?
What happens if you set your delay to 0, and save? Will you fly out at the end of the current tick?
I searched for “delay” in the forums, but didn’t find any in-depth explanation of the system. I’d like to use this mechanic so that I start my loop at an optimal time, as I have another carrier that will be getting ready to work the star as well.
Thanks in advance.
