Small adjustment request
« on: April 14, 2016, 10:29:48 am »
Could base walls be reinforced by a smidgen feels a little flimsy when iffy quality(below 35 dmg)gunpowder weapons blows through several walls in a row on auto fire. For something that looks like metal 2 floors below ground I've met sturdier wood shacks. The shacks in question seem to be about 50/50 to mid 40s dmg guns.

The corner wedges in the lift on other hand feel remarkably sturdy generally withstanding lots of pretty high dmg explosives.

The walls should be impervious to anything below circa 65 base damage, unless I got my numbers wrong... Or maybe the diff level is affecting this? How big an explosive has to be to destroy such a wall? Have you tested this?

I don't have hard data at this juncture (working on that)
It just feels marginally too flimsy by about 5-10% which maybe difficulty related. How exactly do walls function? Walls have always been can i break it in immediate fashion consideration for my play even in the original. 65 base seems good on paper. It also may be case of sturdy shacks. On further thought I recall the shacks being pretty hefty back in vanilla.

Hideout walls (the metal ones) have 50 armor. Against terrain, HE does flat 50% base damage, and firearms around 2/3-4/3 of their base damage. Outer ship's wall has 100 armor, inner 70. Shacks etc. have usually 15-30 armor, but it varies a lot between all these tilesets taken from various sources. Playing on lowest diff. may decrease that terrain armor values, maybe? But I have no other idea.
I will update the tileset just in case something got corrupted, though.

Well if 4/3 is within range vs 50 armor and it breaks(ie. no HP) napkin math says I'm just "lucky ". I'll play with it some more to get a better quality data sample.
