In my battles, using component damage rules, Vehicles are not all that different from foot soldiers that can move faster.
piltogg wrote:The way you play it, does a vehicle just die once it reaches 0 structure points, or does it explode at that point?
piltogg wrote:I now feel the need to re-read through the rules. As my comprehension of them is lacking after like three years of playing with the same people who were all to lazy to read the rules so they just went with "whatever piltogg says the rules are, those are what the rules are".
piltogg wrote:As I typically have never used a "structure points" system to keep track of vehicles, as that would require paperwork for most of my battles.

Chapter 7 wrote:When a Creation takes a point of Size Damage, it remains the same physical size, but it receives disadvantages as if its effective Size were reduced by one inch. (Any potential advantages that would result from a smaller Size, such as a decreased targeting bonus for attackers, are ignored.) The weapons and devices the Creation can activate during a turn, as well as the Creation's maximum Momentum in a Charge attack, are decreased as if it were one inch smaller. Additionally, its Move is decreased by 1" (to a minimum of 1"). As the Creation takes further points of Size Damage, all of these penalties are cumulative.
Most importantly, if a Creation's effective Size is decreased below the minimum requirement for its Structure Level, its Structure Level is decreased to match, making badly damaged Creations even more vulnerable. Surface Elements and moving parts whose Structure Level is relative to that of the main Creation are also weakened accordingly, to a minimum Structure Level of ½ and Armor of 1d6.
