BW2005-combined piloting

Hi there.
A question about piloting big creations. In the rulebook (2005) there's a good example of what I mean, a vessel operated by multiple minifigs, but unfortunately it remains an example and not a rule (unless I didn't understand anything).
If I have a big machine with high use ratings for fire, for example, can I use multiple pilots and combine their skill rolls for operating it? Maybe two for the gun, one for moving and machine guns...an so on.

Thanks warriors!  :warhead:

Absolutely! He doesn't even necessarily need to be a pilot if the only action he's doing on any turn is piloting the vehicle. That way, other minifigs can focus on doing cool things like shooting guns and drinking maniac-beer.

Also, take a look at Gunners in Chapter 8 of the 2010 rules.

Man if you're gonna keep spilling the beans about 2010 you might as well post a link to them in the downloads page.

Or you know, finish working on them but that's just beating a dead horse.

Man, we have been hearing this question for two whole years now... I can only assume Rayhawk gains some perverse pleasure every time it is asked.

Ah damn it stubby...you got me this time.

(Fun fact: This is only the second time someone has posted a link to the 2010 rules)

Wow Colette, I didn't know you were into that stuff. Anyway it's pretty easy to find the 2010 rules.

THIS POST HAS BEEN MODERATED. THE 2010 RULES MUST BE FOUND ON YOUR OWN.

Yes they do. You have to click five times for it to work.

He's joking. You have to click each one five times and then enter the Konami code and then click five more times.

Hmm... Harder than it seems. I found that I had to click five times and then enter the first twenty digits of pi. 3.14159265358979323846 (yes I memorized this)
