bVDNI costs
« on: 23 July 2019, 02:57:17 »
I just plugged a Preta B into megamek and gave the pilot bVDNI.

The cost of the unit doubled in BPV. The TCP I later added did nothing.

Interstellar operations p190 says that bVDNI is worth a pilot decrease, same with the TCP. That works out to a +40% increase, hardly the +100% I'm seeing.

Is megamek costing off an old jihad book or something? Do I have to change something in options?

MD implants increase unit BV by a percentage depending on the level of the implant - I think 20% or 25% per level? I donĀ“t recall which implant is which level, though; bVDNI should be level 4 or 5 (out of 5).

It might also be that only the highest-level implant counts here.

So MD stuff follows the rules in the jihad rulebooks instead of interstellar operations?

Odd, not quite a bug, but I figure it would have been switched over by now, with an option for the old rules at most.

We have lots of stuff that hasn't been updated to the newest rules.  The megamek team are volunteers at any given time we only have 2-3 people coding on the projects(MM,MML, MekHQ) in our spare time.

*Checks date IO came out*

Thought it had been out more than three years, and it doesn't really affect functionality. Sorry if I came out entitled.

There are parts of Total Warfare that aren't implemented yet, and it's been out for over a decade. But we're pretty close.
