On my passenger ships I always have my power distributors engineered to engine focus. When it comes to my pure combat ships I have my power distributors engineered to 'high charge capacity' and to be honest I am not sure if that's a good thing as it does carry a recharge penalty, but my warped logic figures I should engineer them to something and that seemed as good as anything else.
Do you have your combat ships engineered to weapons focus? I have always been put off by this as I think a combat ship, that the shields are as important as the weapons, so in short, when it comes to combat ships I am very confused as to what to do. So the question. What do you do and why?
