The basic formulas are Human DV = 10+total reflex save bonus + size modifier Personnel shooting at other personnel sized targets can ignore the size mod but any vehicle or WarMek would not. WarMek DV = 10 (Base) + Pilot Dex Mod + Speed Modifier(+1 for every full 15m moved in the previous action) + S...

Re: RE: PERSONAL COMBAT

Sorry Neo, you're wrong here. Dodge isn't mentioned because it isn't needed. The only thing Dodge would be needed for is to get Mobility. And the prereqs for Mobility have been modified (as mentioned on P.34). The Dodge prerequisite for Mobility is replaced by a prereq for Lightning Reflexes in the...

Their preview would have been a close match for the suiits from the SST book. Problem is they outclassed tiny and small meks.

I would not expect a reply from them, others have tried for months.

Starting packages are Sample packages to make characters. In some cases they have more equipment than you would normally get. You take either a starting package, adjusted for stats, or create your own character. IMHO picking all the skills and feats yourself is the best way. Starting packages are go...

Table 9-5 Mek Armor ( p197) lists the armor rating per ton of armor for various size Meks. Thus a Medium mek (50 ton chassis) would get 26 points for one ton of composite or 15 points of steel armor. Table 9-4 Max Armor tonnage which you referred to gives the max mass of armor allowable in each loca...

Some good points here, sounds like the Press Gangers are not very well run.

The guidelines for MI specifically state we are not to degrade other game systems or manufacturers. As representatives of Mongoose we treat other companies and fans of their games with respect.

The D20 Modern book has a conversion chart but it takes some searching to find. Unfortunately the chart is not in the pocket D20 Mod handbook.

Any restrictions on sources, I'd hate to list equipment you lack the references for.

Stock units, stock w/ mods or custom meks?

Would have offered to help earlier but recently moved and only unpacked books this week.

one problemwith the D20 system is an expansion in available skills without an increase in skill points, however adding 2-3 skill points per level would unbalance the game if only core skills were taken. As far as skills like skiing and skydiving are concerned they best fit into the sport: XX categor...

Nothing. According to the book, they were used for scouting and recon.
Exactly, they act as scouts and sentry duty. In effect they prevent the bugs from sneaking up on the MI.

Re: Mech's Vrs Tanks

I would strike me that a tank, the size of a modern MBT is a simplier platform to armor the a mech, and would be able to cary more armor then a mech. Do you have Armored Companies? While the AC design rules are less realistic in that armor and damage are not allocated to sides/ front/ rear location...

Scopes are notoriously inconsistent in game representations. I suspect the standard scope was included because they are to common to leave out. The designer probably expected to have expanded rules for them at a later date. While 1X sights probably have some (real world) benefit I would simply leave...

You have discovered the problem of multiple writers. Personal preference would be ignore the standard scope in favor of those from Soldiers Companion.
