Talk about the game. What game? The game with the power? What power? The power of ... aw, skip it.

May 2008 IotM

Postby MagiNinjA » Wed Apr 30, 2008 11:49 pm

VHF-1 Fighter
VHF-1 Exosuit

Rockin'.

The Exosuit could use a boost though. For taking up two slots, well, yeah.

Hey, Ryme, is it possible to auto-generate these threads? Just wonderin'.

Eh. Its power is pretty darn impressive.

With our version of php? Hee...


Edit: However, it seems the suit's power is the same as the Lab Suit and less than the Smart Suit.

Since it comes up a lot: the defense bonus is basically extra power, just tacked on in a different way. So 90 power + 20 defense = 110 power. I've been trying (though not doing particularly well) to standardize the power of many of the items of the month at one baseline, and use this to denote an item that's extra strong.

Also had a couple of reports that the airstrike ability disappears from the items list sometimes, and I'll look into that. My guess is it's not carrying over either when someone goes up a level, or when someone exchanges other equipment, so I'll check there tonight.

Did you level up at all last night? If not, that helps me narrow it down a bit.

Ryme coughs politely and looks around innocently.

Fixed the bug were leveling up caused the airstrike not to work. It probably also caused the regeneration not to work properly, either, but that should also be fixed.

This item raises a question...

Can a character without Passable Pilot use the fighter? Or, for that matter, the jetpack?

Indeed, your analysis not wrong at all. That's exactly what I'm doing as well.

An IotM that requires a skill? Huh.

You only need to have Passable Pilot for insurance reasons for the rentals. Otherwise you are free to crash and burn using your own gear as often as you want to.

Rather depends on the bonuses you're looking for.
