KaiMaster Posted October 22, 2002 Share Posted October 22, 2002 Mike: I agree with the rule being overly complex. Being an AO as well, this rule breaks my demos. I could live with the "defensive fire to a CAV with LoS when shooting IF at you" but this one makes it way too clunky hehe How I always thought it worked (and how I logically explain combat and defensive fire in demos, new players don't accept "death blossom mode" right away) was the attacker tries to get tone (TL). If so, the computers help take the shot. If not, the CAV "eyeballs" the target and shoots without computer help. The numbers on the guns include the ability of the CAV and pilot to help aim it. Defensive fire is easy to explain: the CAV detects incoming fire and it selects a trajectory (target) to return fire at. It returns fire and then disappears in a plume of black smoke heh A "house rule" I use simply allows the player to turn off TL at will. In 2271, there is GPS which is fluff to allow premeasuring, and thus in 2271 CAV pilots and wizzos have the inherent ability to turn the targetting computer on and off :D Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
