I just approached a gas giant that claimed an 8 point hull damage reading. My ship had 49% integrity so thought, no problem, and bang!! The approach totally destroyed my ship, ending my game. Has anyone else experienced this?
The game doesn't display the damage a gas giant may inflict to your hull. There is a small 'warning' icon instead. So you never know how much damage you will get. Maybe you misread with fuel or oxygen cost.
Yeah I think you are right but a 49% hull damage is a bit severe. It costs less orbiting a black hole. Maybe the games random field generators need a little tweaking cos it was definitely hull failure that destroyed me
