(Research) ProtoMech Myomer Booster BV
« on: 16 April 2015, 16:13:42 »
Hi,

Pages 306-307 currently read: "A ProtoMech’s Speed Factor reflects its ability to maneuver on the battlefield. To find the Speed Factor, add together the ProtoMech’s Running MP and half its Jumping MP (rounded up). Add 1 to the result if the ProtoMech is equipped with a myomer booster. Then consult the Speed Factor Table (p. 315)."

However, the current BVs for the Siren 4 and Centaur 4 were calculated treating the Myomer Booster the same as MASC for Speed Factor BV purposes. (page 315: "If the unit has MASC or triple-strength myomer (but not industrial triple-strength myomer), use the maximum MP it can generate utilizing that equipment. Round off the result to two decimal places."

Siren 4 BV calculations:
Code: [Select]
DEFENSIVE BV
12 (armor) x 2.5 = 30
8 (IS) x 1.5 = 12
(30 + 12) x 1.6 = 67.2

TOTAL DEFENSIVE BV: 67.2

- - - - -

OFFENSIVE BV
7 (ER Micro Laser)

7 x 2.44 (Speed Factor of 16) = 17.08, total BV added and rounded to 84 -> using base running, +1
7 x 3 (Speed Factor of 20) = 21,  total BV added and rounded to 88 -> current BV
7 x 3.15 (Speed Factor of 21) = 22.05,  total BV added and rounded to 89 -> using max, Myomer Booster running, +1

Should a passage be added or removed from the section?

I'm afraid this one will take a while, as we're looking at some structural changes which may or may not heavily affect it.  Sorry for the lengthy delay.
