Re: Does armor have less protection against lasers?

Laser sniping has to be a legitimate concern.

Re: Ship's Locker: Out of the Closet

Law Level Six Everything's banned except stunners and shotguns. Stunners are reasonable, though not necessarily proportional, force. With shotguns, I think the real issue that regime would have would be with concealability, capacity, rate of fire, and possibly destructiveness. That means that there...

Re: Ship's Locker: Out of the Closet

Submachine Guns Seems a dead end development, with at one end carbine and subcarbine variants of assault rifles using intermediate rounds, or intermediate intermediate rounds, or just skipping to pistol ammunition, for up close and personal combat ranges, and carbinized pistol adaptations at the ot...

Re: Does armor have less protection against lasers?

Reflec wouid be indicative of light dispersing on contact, though I think it's been retconned to disperse heat through the fabric, which would deal better with ecks ray variants, assuming those are still canon.

Ablat is clearly absorption and evaporation.

Re: Ship's Locker: Out of the Closet

Advanced Sniper Rifle Slightly downscaled at technological level nine, since electrothermal compound has twice the energy of the default propellant, and drops effective range from five hundred to four hundred fifty metres if you use the Advanced Combat Round, since damage potential is the same thou...

Re: Alternative to drop tanks

Fire Fusion Steel allowed scaling of weapon systems, and almost everyone realized that a large and fast enough kinetic kill missile superceded spinal mounts; the warhead costs practically nothing, and all you needed was a rocket motor and guidance. My second contribution was, I think, a kilotonne fu...

Re: Alternative to drop tanks

We're trying to figure out arcane mechanics based on fictional physics, created arbitrarily decades ago. Let's change the parameters. We have an actual fuel tank, with default plumbing. We fill up a giant condom contained in the tank and attach that to the pump. If that works, fuel bladders either w...

Re: Ship's Locker: Out of the Closet

A bullet maximum range, when fired out of a handgun, depends on the type of gun. A bullet shot out of a gun will eventually slow down due to the drag factor. The drag factor is due to the gradual accumulation of air resistance as the bullet loses momentum. The maximum range of a handgun is determin...

Re: Terraforming in a nightmarish way...

Timescale would be the real variant.

Over millions of years you could arrange the orbits of various planetoids to rendezvous, adding dynamism (and volcanism) to otherwise lifeless rocks, plus what's really required, a magnetic field.

Re: Reach Adventure 6: Exodus - Now on Ebook & Pre-Order

The Aslan were created by Man.

They rebelled.

They evolved.

They look and feel anthropomorphic.

Some are acculturated to think they are human.

There are many clones.

And they have a plan.

Re: Ship's Locker: Out of the Closet

Probably hackable; these are integral features, which I interpret to mean streamlined into the rifle and not intended to be removed.

Having said that, I suspect that video can be streamed from the scope, either then, or later with the introduction of the gauss rifle.
