Fighter bonuses

Post#1 » Mon Sep 10, 2007 12:11 pm

I've been reading documents for Phost games, which show some races can get fighter combat bonuses. I was wondering if some races have fighter bonus in our normal games. I'm not asking about colonial fighter sweep or federation launch bays - this is more about combat bonuses.

AFAIK,
There are no racial based (within VCR.EXE or HOST.EXE) fighter
combat advantages/settings.

There is:
Left Side advantage.
Right Side gains +360kt (60% of time?) vs Left side CV.
Understanding is a three-edged sword.
Your side,
their side,
and the truth.

That explains a lot. I knew there was a right side mass advantage, but didn't realize it was that significant - and random. Thank you Bane.

In big CVs, it makes no difference in the Left Side advantage "bug".
Whichever CV gets left side has a significant advantage regardless
of the weight of the CV on the right side.

Same situation versus a heavy torper, the extra 360 has no effect.


The only time that the +360 makes a difference is when the right
side ship is of relatively low mass.

ie: In a game with no (or low) shield bonus, if the mass of a ship
is below 321kt (including es bonus) then the +360 can have an
effect.

What it does for low mass ships is it changes the damage delivered
by fighter craft down to 1pt.

So, a ship with mass 320 takes 2pts of dmg from each fighter but
a ship with 321+ takes 1 pt.
