I was wondering....is it just me, or does anyone ever use torpedo spreads?? I find them mostly ineffective, and the only time ill use the spreading option is if I'm comfortably destroying someone and i'm about to finish them off, then ill do a quad-spread and blow them up with a flourish...other than that, i never use them....any comments??
The Captains say "Full spread" every now and then. I thought that ment how wide of area the torpedos would spread. NOT how MANY torps. That was a disappointing part of the game. I use it on the Montana class 'cause it can fire six torps at the same time, so when spread is on "all" I press the torp button three times and I get fifteen torps. (Don't remember exactly) Otherwise I never use it.
I would recommend not using them unless you are confident that you will hit. otherwise you increase your miss rate and you lose torpedoes while you're at it. unless of course you have a lot of torps....but thats another story
I never use spreads, and the only time I even see them being used online is by n00bs when they park their Sov and use it as a turret.
I rarely use them if at all. Just simply a waste mostly. I would only use them if I am really close to my target or againt a very large target like the Hutet, Borg Cube, and stations.
I mostly agree with you all, but the Quad spread is handy when taking on a Borg Cube or ISS 'cos they pretty much always ALL hit!
I wonder how the game devolpers got them to work on stock ships in the first place ? I tried setting up a torpedo firing chain in the Intrepid's hardpoint file to include single and dual spread mode . While testing : the button appears and torps fire as usual in single mode . But as soon as I hit the button and swith to dual spread to whole thing goes nuts and I got torps flying allover the place !! They come out of the tube at a 60° angle !!

There's a Hutet out? Where?
I got mine from http://www.zorgspace0001.com/
Cool site. How do you install those mods?
