Q: what are 3 bars in the bottom right corner?
A: Blue – Shields
Red – power of Weapons/Mining Lasers
Green – Engines
Q: Why do the bars go to 150%?
A: Because depending on the situation you may want to “overload” them. Setting them at above 100% for example at 150% will consume more power so you better watch the % of power core indicator above the bars.
