Percent Fuel: HUD value different to Lobby value #4684
When the ship's fuel level is not completely full or completely empty, the percent fuel shown in the lobby is not the same as the percent fuel shown on the HUD. The value displayed on the HUD is always a little bit more.
I think they should agree - unless I am missing something?
Steps to reproduce
Shouldn't they be the same? Or is the HUD value something else? The wiki's description of the value is "It shows the % of the tanks"...
My pioneer version (and OS):
Hmm, it seems that the hud is showing it as a percetangle of the total deltav and the other as percetangle of tank capacity?
OK, I see... They're not actually measuring the same thing. Using the same test scenario:
I did have an understanding that a certain reduction in fuel resulted in a smaller, nonlinear reduction in delta-v, because overall mass is less... The difference between these two values sort of quantifies that.
I'll look into creating an account for the wiki and contribute a description update there. (Edit: done.)
I'm re-opening, as I think we should discuss this more, because it's certainly going to confuse more players, so we need to make sure it's addressed in the best way.
Main question is: do we want these numbers to be different?
If they should show different, then at least the mouse over tooltip should reflect that (i.e. need a pull request), + wiki edit, as mentioned.
