Carbonfiber
Carbon Fiber is a very inexpensive and practical armor upgrade. It has been used to protect starships as long as humanity has been in space, as far as any historians know. Because of its time-proven solidity and cost-effectiveness, independent captains and privateers have always relied heavily on it.

EffectEdit

Adds 40 units of armor per layer.

Maximum 4 layers.

The cost and mass are proportionate to the mass of your ship, see armor.

CheapEdit

A cheap version is also often available.

It has same mass and cost 40% less.
But it provides only 30 units of armor and degrades to near useless in about 6 months.

It can not be repaired, instead sell and buy a new one.

All versions :

Name
+Description
Maximum Armor Value Comment
Carbon Fiber 4 +40 250 cr
Carbon Fiber - cheap - 2 +30 150 cr Degrades randomly to next version.
Carbon Fiber - degraded -
"starting to go"
n/a + 20 75 cr Degrades randomly to next version.
Carbon Fiber - degraded -
"well on the way out"
n/a + 10 50 cr Degrades randomly to next version.
Carbon Fiber - degraded -
"shot to pieces"
n/a + 6 25 cr Does not degrade further.

All versions are separate outfits.

Thus you may pile 4 normal layers, 2 cheap ones, and every time those degrade pile 2 cheap ones again.

NotesEdit

Carbon fiber is real cheap, use it if you have any unused space.

If price is not a matter, Matrix Steel is readily available at Aurorans and masses the same as 3 Carbon Fiber for 25% more armor.
