P.S. Anyone wanna compare me vs. IronStar 23, single-vehicle quality-wise? :P (Not competitively, just friendly)
I think you did a pretty good job. On the dimensions of vehicles, I always round up to the next 5-foot square. I think if the vehicle protrudes into a square at all, then it counts a being that much larger.
I would say the Phantom’s cost is 51
and I always round the chase scale speed up (like turning 2816 into 282), like they did in the “Even More Modern” web enhancement (though I know they didn’t in the core rulebook, but it’s just my personal taste).
Why's that? (I always round down when the difference is inches, and the d20 rule is to round down with fractions.)
Why is that?
It makes sense. I just assume that you never know when you'll have to approach a vehicle in character scale, ie a shooting ambush, and thus you'll need its character scale size. Admittedly this shouldn't be relevant with aircraft, but ...
I guess I don’t really have a definitive answer to that. When they created the book, they mostly rounded down when it was a matter of inches. However, I like to use a grid for combat with visual representations of characters and vehicles, and it looks better to have a “buffer zone” on the representation.
That is because its unit cost is 18.4 million dollars according to Global Aircraft. That is about two million more than the dollar amount of DC 51, but falls about four million short of DC 52.
I’m not talking about only using chase scale, I’m just saying that for determining chase scale that I round the character scale up instead of rounding down. (I have had chracters encounter aircraft moving on the ground… :D )
Glad to see that purchace dcs are finally being added!
How about weaps for all the vehicles that need them?
with the MiG, I was thinking of the one with the 53mm cannon (lovely plane, lovely weaps).
Also, even though this is not a site/thread for such things, stats for Anthrax, Agent Orange, and other nasties sometime...
Also, How about KITT from Knight Rider, The General Lee from Dukes of Hazard, Air Wolf, and Bandit's car from Smokey and the Bandit?
If you don't mind, I'm going to post all of these here vehicles on my webpage, and also .pdf the whole lot for easy download.. I'll post the link for the webpage when it's up.. Hope it's allright..?
By the way, how about making equipment for mod'in' cars, such as NOS which will grant a car greater speed, and such.. Or other mods to improve the vehicles overall stats..?
A Bombardier Learjet 40.
I think Bandit drove a firebird too. How about a Ferrarri Testorosa, a porche, an 80's corvette, a lamborghini diablo, and a camaro Z-28 IROC?
How about statting up Mad Max's car? That would be a little cool.
Thanks a lot!
Man, 1 square wide in the passenger compartment.
Not a lot of room for combat! :D
