Normally, any time you're talking about radius then you're talking about component damage to all the elements within that radius, rather than size damage.

Size damage doesn't have a location, so a radius wouldn't apply - you'd just take one hit of whatever was the highest damage you were exposed to. One hit of 7d10 and done. I should probably add than in as a second example.

Oh okay, that wasn't clear. That really changes a lot about explosives in general, from how effective they are in ship-to-ship combat, to how dangerous they are when you're overloaded

So explosives would function the same way as any other attack when choosing damage?
ex: Targeting the side of a cruiser vs targeting a turret or the bridge

Right. Targeting the side of the cruiser, you'd still be choosing between size damage (hurting the cruiser overall) or component damage (blowing a hole in the side of the cruiser).

Underwater would be like space, except all ranges would be halved instead of doubled. It'd emphasize close quarters fighting rather than the long distance stuff you see in space.

Also on hull breaches you'd get implosive compression rather than explosive decompression, which is rad.

Neato

Adding a section for various different battlefield environments (underwater, space, arctic or desert?) and their effects would help spice up games.

I've rearranged and updated the Explosives rules. Premature Detonation is back to requiring direct damage to the explosives themselves: http://brikwars.com/rules/draft/8.htm#4

Are spammers actually taking the time to read the game rules before posting spam links??
