[Solved] Add Healing Factor for Units
« on: December 05, 2022, 05:38:31 am »
Per title.

Basically each unit has a healing factor divisor that modifies their rate of wound recovery. A healing factor of 2 = half the standard wound recovery time for example. This value defaults to 1. This would be good for special units like 40k mod's Space Marines.

Alternately it could be made a multiplier that multiplies the rate of wound recovery; whichever would be best/easiest to implement.

Already done by scripts. Ogryn in 40k have exactly that - 1/3rd the wound recovery time for the same amount of damage taken compared to other soldier types.

Even outside of scripts, the regular ruleset lets you define unit types as not needing time to heal (and not taking fatal wounds or losing morale from losing HP) - because tanks worked that way in the original games. A useful shorthand if you want to create hero characters reminiscient of a fantasy RPG who only need a good night's sleep to heal what would take the rest of us weeks in hospital.
