i've noticed that there are several types of non-colonizable grav wells with some pretty exotic looking names and graphics. These are your plasma storms, magnetic clouds, etc.
My question is this: do these types of grav wells have any effect on your ships or are they just for show?
I've tried to examine this myself a little bit and haven't come up with anything yet. I haven't looked very carefully, but i did briefly monitor things like rate of hull, shield, and anti-matter recovery in a Plasma Storm and it appeared normal. I also checked ship movement speed, which appeared normal. Ability cooldowns were normal too.
Does anyone know for sure? Its possible my observations were inaccurate of course or the effect is something I hadn't considered and didn't look for. Does anyone know for sure?
