Custom equipment idea: Compact Double Heat Sink?
« on: 03 December 2022, 05:26:55 »
You know Compact Heat Sink, which costs 1/2 critical and 1.5 tons each? Its concept was actually great - but you know its major drawback - the introduce year which is far later than the reintroduce of Double Heat Sink.

Although Double Heat Sink is actually the most critical efficient heat sink, but still it is not so weird that reduce its size a bit. So... what would be its ideal size and weight?

The initial though for me is make it 2 criticals, 1.5 tons and -2 heat per a compact double heat sink. 2 criticals is same as Superheavy Critical Space on Superheavy Mech Construction rule(so round up a half of 3). So it is similar with 1/2 critical and 1.5 tons as Compact Heat Sink. Yes still it is not that viable option compared by standard Double Heat Sink, but it wasn't meant to be an efficient equipment in the first place.

Anyway is there any better idea?

We played with essentially that in one campaing. IIRC we used fractional accounting and had the CDHS at 1.3 tons each, but the idea is the same and it seemed to work OK.
