Speaking of, does FE actually reduce fuel consumption now, or just let you magically ride on 0 fuel for X% of your total range?

I am having a hard time reading this. What do the different colors mean?

Images first, explanations after.

Colors are plane class. Purple is upgrade. White numbers are plane tier. Bottom of bar is stock range. Top of bar is FE8 range. Big black lines are range required for certain Skylands. The Grottopolis data is estimated.

So if I'm reading this right, the T5 combat and trade planes will get you anywhere ?

Yep; not sure about fuel stations, but phil said they're "capped at T7" atm, which I assume means the T7 perf?

EDIT: Hrm, maybe it's just the scale, but the major range jumps seem weird-the big jump for traders is T7 to T8, on combats it's T8-9 (which I'd expect) and on perfs it looks to be T7-8 and T8-9.

I think he meant FL7.

Considering he mentioned "instead of 8 or 9" I'm pretty sure it's teirs...

I think phil uses 1-based indexing for his FLs? So if he says FL7 instead of 8 or 9, that means FL6 to us. But that might not be what he meant.

That really is a very good display.

Do you prefer honor or infamy?

Honor, if it pleases you. Though I'd like it even better if you were to help someone else, in turn. =)

Just bought FL8, so updated with Grottopolis' actual data. Some consequences:

FE8 Loki cannot, as I had initially estimated, reach Grottopolis.
Phantom and Mantis require FE to reach Grottopolis, can't make it stock.

Also, the Nomad could reach Uurwerk with Fuel Efficiency 507.
The Thor would need FE 886.
The CR-4P could make it with FE 2012.

You mean a "Norse" land, me thinks. Especially if you're depending on Thor to get ya there.
