Sloped Armor

Postby BriksKrieg » Wed Oct 04, 2017 8:35 am

Im not sure if this has been suggested yet, so I'm gonna put my sloped armor stats here. Sloped armor provides deflection from attacks made against the sloped area. Sloped armor also adds +1 to the sloped areas structure level.

Sloped armor looks something like whut you see here on the side and on the front. Let's say this tanks structure was 4. It would have an effective structure of 5. If it were to take damage, and lose a structure level, going down to structure 3, it would have effective structure of 4, and so on. Structure of zero has effective structure of 1.
Spoiler: show
If you have a negative structure level, whut the hell did you do
The effective structure levels only apply to the areas that are sloped. If an area is flat, and it's surroundings are sloped, the the flat piece gains no benefits, while the sloped parts do.
Comments questions and criticism are welcome! :D

Wait, does it do anything regarding size damage?

That's a gud question. Uhmmmm...
In a way yus. The area that's sloped has a +1 buff to it size
If you mean in the context of: a size four creation with sloped front takes damage, no. The creation itself is still a size four, but the sloped part has the effective strength of 5. It make it harder to deal size damage when hit in that area, but it doesn't change the creations size as a whole( unless the whole thing is/has sloped armor and even then, it's an effective size, so if a creation would be reduced to size zero, it's still destroyed, but the sloped part still has an armor value. It's like in some games, were a person dies in front  of you, and your bullets keep on hitting them even though they died.)
Did that answer your question, or did I just repeat stuff over.

AAAH, I understand now.
