Decimal FP bonus? Reply to this Post Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Posts Report Post to a Moderator       Go to the top of this page

Aside from crew rank, what can give a ship a 0.5% firepower bonus? I seem to be missing something and I'm just not seeing it.

Battle reports show ships with 1146/201/0 and 0/0/2010 firepower. Beam lasers are 285/50/0 so 285 * 4 = 1140 and with a 0.5% increase it's 1146. Fusion bombs are 500 so 500 * 4 = 2000 and with a 0.5% increase it's 2010.

Fractional rank matters, but you should see that in the battle report, IIRC.

Well that's before any crew rank bonuses which, as you mentioned, are listed separately.

you dont know his race modifications exactly though. He could have a race perk for + firepower...and be using different weapons then you think he is to get that that attack value.


Example....with a 34% firepower damage increase....3 fusion bombs would equal 2,010 damage. 500*3= 1500. 1500 * 1.34 = 2010

This 34% also holds true for the beam laser example you give. Comes to 1145.7 for light FP, which the game rounds up.

That also holds true with the HFP. But Arcady indicated it was 4 fighters and 4 bombers not 3.

A valid point for the bombers, but I have yet to find a similar match for the 1146/201, hence the original question. Both ships are from the same player and the only combination I can find is the 0.5% bonus, which makes no sense. I should also mention that I'm quite certain that there is a 34% FP bonus attached, but I just wasn't able to correlate both sets of numbers accurately. I just wanted to make sure that I wasn't missing something with a possible 0.5% bonus that I wasn't thinking of.

I should mention that those numbers would be from single ships and I don't really know what they carry or how many, that's what I was trying to work out Smile

Since this is an active galaxy it probly isn't in good taste to work on reverse engineering the ship design in a public forum. I just couldn't get past the strange bonus scenario which seemed to fit so well with both sets of data, though it just can't be correct.

Well that explains it all then I spose. I don't know how I missed that, I swear I already checked that, but it fits. So no strange bonuses then.

I hope this wasn't detrimental to anyone playing right now. If it was, feel free to cuss me out Smile
