WOW!!!   does the suicide fusion REALLY do that much damage?!?!?

yikes, thats a big-ole-bug.  I know the max's in SFB were 13, 19, and 26.  And I thought 26 points max was bad; 38 is just devastating.

Oh yeah, Thanks for putting this back up Corbo.

I wouldn't sweat it. Suicide fusions NEVER get used. With 7 points each to arm and 4 to hold, you won't be able to catch your target if you try.

For some reason the charts keep getting corrupted and out of line. I have fixed them twice now, but since it takes a lot of time I need to find a better format or find out why the forum software can't keep it aligned.

Try tables...


Phaser IV:

NOTE: Except for mods, the Phaser IV will only be found on Bases, Planets and certain Monsters.

Range:     0-3     4-5     6     7     8     9     10     11-13     14-17     18-25     26-40     41-70     71-100
Max:     20     20     20     15     12
Min:

etc...

could use a few more leading spaces in each cell to space it out more but you get the idea...

Great chart!

If I may humbly submit a correction, though:

Weapon probes do 6 damage, not 8 as listed.

Cheers,
Slick.

I noticed that too, but only against ships it seems. If you fire it at a planet it does 8. Not having the code to look at I must default to the listed damage it is supposed to do.

From my dusty memory: Range 16-22 Disruptors do 2 points of damage. Attack probes do only 2 damage to ships (but do 8 to shuttles and missiles).

I believe you are correct in SFB, but I'm pretty sure Taldren adjusted their chart for DERFACS as a free bonus just like the UIM in the overload bracket.

Attack Probes do 6 points to ships and 8 to planets for sure, I tested it.

Its good to see you around here again Tar!   :)

OK, its been a long time since I did any straightening out in here. Here is a list of changes, edits and additions:


1) New layout with Arming Rates and weapons grouped by type/function. Charts have been reorganized or replaced to (hopefully) fix the fun house mirror drifting problems.

2) New charts including: ECM/ECCM, Cloaking Device and Ship Explosion/Self Destruction.

3) Amended charts for accuracy: Phaser X, Fusion Suicide Overload and Attack Probes.

4) Amended/Expanded notes for accuracy including (but not limited to): Hellbores, Plasma and Attack Probes.


Enjoy!!  :D   <------- My eyes after looking at this stuff for days and days...and days...

I seem to remember the AMD-12 taking 2 turns to reload, and the Plas-D 1.33 turns. The idea is that these devices can load 3 "spaces" of munitions per turn, AMD's being 1/2 space items and Plas-D as 1-space items.

I didn't notice any significant differences in loading times for these items. I will slow down the clock and take a better look.

Thanks Tar!

Confirmed: AMD6, AMD12 and Plasma D all rearm in one turn as soon as the entire Hardpoint is empty as compared to a PH-1, which is a known quantity. You will see them jump to a "Ready to Fire" state immediately (Hardpoint all filled in) if the weapon is not totally discharged after firing, but the slow "crawl" to reload definitely takes one turn.

Hehe, giving this chart a thorough lookthru, now I see what they mean by "Magic Photons" with the 83-67-33% hit rates, instead of the 67-50-33% in the original manual.  :)

I also noticed what Tar said about the R16-R22 disruptors. When I tried firing one shot at the AI in skirmish mode and then quit, the debriefing screen said total damage scored to enemy was 2. I can check it again, though, that was a little while ago.

Confirmed: 16-22 Disruptor does 2 points of damage. Chart amended. I did that chart a long time ago. I must have read the ranges wrong in my test because I'm pretty sure I defended that call from my notes and never bothered to retest it. My bad!  :-[
