Why do Cruise Engines drain my weapon power supply?

I recently bought one of those Xperimental Heavy Fighters from Pueblo Station, I kept the default stuff that came with it, which is Bretonia Equipment and my Heavy Thruster. For all the ships I use with afterburners, they all seem to have the same loss/regen rate!

Not to mention when I engage my Cruise Engines, it draws energy from my weapon power supply! What's up with that! I have a s-01 Shield Power Cell and a Mark I Shield Regenerator if that helps.

i beleive its to make a more real world on freelancer, get the biggest battle ship you can and see if you can get the power plant from it into your fighter you wont have the problem, best power plant i know if is on the ship with two plasma cannons. cant think of the name of it tho but its got one heck of a punch.

You'll need to get the biggest power upade you can buy and level 5 power cells and fusion injectors. The Corsairs and the Castaways have at their home bases. You might be able to bribe your way into Tripoli Shipyard down at Freeport 9.

I'm in my own world, but that's ok, they all know me here.

Actually, you do not need to buy one of the best powerplants to avoid power drain bu engines. It depends on the poweplant, not necessarily the engine (though some engines, like Corsair VHF engine, drain like no other! Don't use that engine - if you ever buy a Titan, buy another engine).
Anywaysm just buy an upgrade powerplant or an upgrade engine, and usually the problem is solved. Or buy on hte the Corsair or Outcast VHF powerplants, which are some of the best in hte game.
