[Twinsen] [0.17.75] "maxenergy consuption" tooltip applies fully for module modifiers

Not sure if a bug or how it is supposed to work...

Since this update the "energy consumption" got replaced with the "max consumption" that also includes the drain. So if you add speed-modules to the assembler it will now add the energy multiplier to the combined cost (also the drain) in the display. Is this how it works? Has this mechanic changed? I cannot remember the energy modifiers being applied to the drain as well in the past.

The mechanic didn't change. If you check the number, it's calculated the same way as before.
So to calculate it using the data in the tooltips new_max_consumption = (max_consumption - min_consumption) * (1 + module_modifier) + min_consumption.

aka. the modifier is applied to the consumption without the drain.

It's quite misleading but the previous system was also greatly misleading as a lot of people thought that drain was not used during normal usage.

I changed the way the tooltip is shown to make it a bit more clear.
So now it will show something like "Max consumption: 900 kW (+140%) + 12.5 kW" when a consumption effect is applied.

Fixed in Version: 0.17.77.
