(Answered) Void Signature System Battle Value
« on: 18 June 2021, 14:54:01 »
Okay, I've looked in Tactical Operations everywhere I could find, and I'm building up a couple designs with that equipment in place.  Since I'm going in to a BV-restricted scenario, I wanted to make sure I didn't go over.  However, I just noticed that neither SSW or MML have a BV for it.  I looked in TO, and it doesn't seem to be address it, either.

Since I don't like cheating, any idea of where to look for its BV, or even if it HAS BV?

There's an "Advanced Battle Values" section at the back of the book that handles all BV stuff separately; the Void-Sig is there.

Also contains faction deployment & rarity info.

I see it now (even in the ToC *facepalm*).  Not the best thing to keep them all separate, but that's water under the bridge now.

So MML and SSW just don't calculate it... Bummer.  I REALLY don't feel like trying to work it out all by myself.

I can't speak for SSW, but MegaMekLabs does calculate it.  See here

I see the explanation now.  I checked it out on SSW with a full 100 tonner that had a Walk of 1, and it raised the BV.  When I was checking it out earlier, they were definitely faster than that.  Odd that just by being a certain speed, the VSS doesn't add any BV.
