Yes it does not use hitpoints, oh silly person. But it has it's own way of them. Though you are right on the ammo. Also, was not fingering any specific game. Just, that is something people tend to shrug off as standard and a newtonian physics calculation is slightly simpler since it uses constants w...

Trust me, not misjudging them. Just saying the biblical jokes feel too obvious. Or maybe I am still overestimating edumacation.

Only from, Intravenous Equestrian... only from. That is one of the funniest things I've ever read. i have to admit, i giggled. surprisingly i haven't gotten obscure biblical references yet though. We are trying to be original. We are sure the biblical references have been done to death and rode off...

Yeah, most games can capture the feel of brikwars when you go in with the brikwars attitude... Halo 3. King of the hill. I just want kill achievements. I get on a turret and use the hill as my bait for those sitting ducks... results were more hilarious then I thought they'd be. Armored Core... tweak...

Converted to brikwars... massive fleets... scales... no wonder you all think this is so freaking complex. You are putting way, way more thought into it then I ever did. Not any of that is needed. First, why start with massive battles? Second, the mystique about newtonian physics being complex needs ...

Hurray, we move in the direction of positive grumblings and grammar corrections.

I like grammar and/or physics corrections, I do them often. :roll:

So, anybody want to take a crack at this with me or what?

Essentially it's km/s times kg/s equals thrust. Measurement in newtons... I have no idea WHY the book uses newtons for that explanation and not anywhere else. You're off by a factor of [merely] 1,000. The formula gives results in kilonewtons, not newtons. Either way, not entirely essential to the p...

But isn't that still off topic? I ask, but immediately am imagining it on the battlefield. :roll:

I smile... what kind of guitar?

Well, darkwolf, the rulebook I want to use, the only one I want to use, is 32 pages long. Just that one. The one I linked to. The 120 page book is a completely different game. Intravenous Equestrian... The formula listed is needlessly wordy. Essentially it's km/s times kg/s equals thrust. Measuremen...
