Go dark
Turns off all non-essential systems, reducing the range at which the fleet can be detected by 50% and reducing maximum burn rate by 50%.

–In-Game Description

Go Dark is an ability available to the fleet. It is unlocked by default.

Going dark causes the fleet to lose 50% of its burn level, but reduces the fleet's detection range by 50% in exchange. The abilities' effects take one second to take action.

The detection range reduction can stack with other detection range modifiers, such as terrain modifiers (eg. Asteroid Fields, Nebulas), as well as the reduction from hullmods such as Insulated Engine Assembly. The burn level reduction, if it causes the fleet's burn level to be a decimal, such as a burn level of 11 being halved to 5.5, will round up, to 6 in the given example.


Go Dark interrupts the following fleet abilities;

Go Dark does not prevent the activation of these abilities, though activating them will interrupt Go Dark.
