bug: fuel prediction error when giving multiple turn moves
Ship ID: 64
Ship will reach destination (planet) in two turns via an intermediate waypoint in space.
UI states 204 kt needed to travel, left exact amount in tank
Arrived at mid-space waypoint.
UI states now 74 kt needed, but 81kt left in tank.
Intention was to arrive at destination fuel less.
Destination is a planet so in turn 15 UI takes into account the warp well, however in turn 14 it seems that the warp well was not taken into account since it was not the immediate way point.
This error has been documented: http://planets.nu/#/howtoplay/FuelEstimateErrors
Several fuel usage errors have been found and described in this thread:
I've also tested this and it is not related to the warpwell. The UI miscalculates the fuel usage when multiple waypoints are used.
In my test I used a LDSF with 1200 cargo flying 246ly.
If you click on the destination it says you need 385kt of fuel.
If you set multiple waypoints (at 81+81+81+3ly) then it says you need 419.
Having tested this, even flying with the wayponts programmed you use the lower fuel calculation (385kt in my test).
