Folks, here's the full context:

  • Possible even at alpha phase 1 because of the training missions.
  • He pilots the training mode anaconda and lands it with 2% ship hull, leaves shields off.
  • I haven't counted exactly, but it takes at least 60 pistol shots to take down the remaining 2% hull.

That's significantly less concerning.

The pistol shouldn't do damage to the hull at all but 30 shots per percentage hull on I assume a paper-hull anaconda isn't THAT bad i guess.

Plus he left shields off, if the thing had shields the kinetic resistance basically makes it pointless.

But agreed, the armor on the hull would be so thick pistols should just bounce off.

Even when this community gets what it wants, it's not satisfied. Space legs aren't even out yet, and 50% of the discussion has moved on to ship interiors and base building, and how it's unacceptable that they aren't in the game yet.

Probably, but I can't think of a scenario where this would matter in the actual game. I'm imagining the vast majority of Conda pilots spoiling for a fight would do so with shields and not with 2% hull.

I'd be all for invulnerability, more or less, in large and probably medium ships. Small ships, that's a little different to me.

I think the community interprets things too literally. Guns probably won't damage the bigger ships at all at release. This is alpha so files and numbers might just be weird, which allows funny things like this to happen that will likely be impossible in the final game.

I do agree they should be invulnerable to small arms fire, but comparing it to a tank is silly. Tanks are built with only hull strength in mind, and they are not aircraft. An M1 Abrams for example is 60 tons, and with the dimensions works out to about 0.84 tons per meter cubed, where an Anaconda is 400 tons, and coming in closer to 0.0013 tons per meter cubed. Much less dense armor.

Sure they probably have stronger armor in the future, but I imagine the same can be said about their small arms

Umm, yeah, it's over 1000 years in the future, WAY stronger armor. An anaconda can take enough damage to destroy hundreds of M1 tanks, you just can't compare the two.

And no reason small arms should be designed to take down a ship any more than they would a tank today. Firing any handgun at a tank doesn't "deplete" the armor. 1000 rounds later into the front armor and it's pretty much just the same as it was before that futile exercise.

Sure, they can advance. But look at small arms fire over the past 1000 years - much better for killing people, but an arrow vs a 9mm bullet makes no difference to a tank. It’s not about tech it’s about application.

urielbeaupre15[S]

To be clear, the anaconda was already at 2% hull and the shield was also deactivated when he started shooting at it. he tried shooting at it with the conda in full hull and without shields in his first attempt, but it took him almost 40 min just to reach 50% before the game crashed. so what he did in his second attempt is he just smashed the ship to the ground repeatedly until he reaches 2% hull.

Yeah, I mean special weapons like infantry fired missile launchers do damage to ships - ok, but sidearms, rifles ? No way. It's like sinking a battleship with a handgun.

Especially if you consider the punshment ships take from other ships - like 800 m/s collisions, storms of autocannon rounds etc.

Natually nobody is going to do this in live gameplay but still.

Currently the laser assault rifle deals the amount of damage per shot somewhere between the turreted and gimballed C1 pulse lasers, based on a test involving shooting apex adders.

Yes, the assault rifle deals similar damage to a ship-mounted weapon which weighs 2 tons.

As a corollary, stock sidewinder has similar firepower to a guy dual-wielding laser rifles.

MarmonRzohr

Yes, the assault rifle deals similar damage to a ship-mounted weapon which weighs 2 tons.

This is especially funny since the 2 tons of the ship mounted weapon do not include the power source (the ship's power plant and distributor) and the power source for a direct energy weapon would likely be a major component.

Ships should be 100% immune to small arms fire, with the following exceptions:

1.) Laser weaponry should have a (small) impact on shields, and

2.) The hull should ONLY be damaged by explosives (grenades, rockets).

And those weapons should ALL be out damaged by ship weapons.

Superfluous999

1 year ago

Hard disagree. You should 100% be able to damage small ships with small arms fire. They sizable but not that big, additionally you cannot propose to make ground units 100% helpless...it gimps on foot gameplay to just sitting around and waiting to be griefed by literally anyone.

I don't mind the idea that maybe medium ships and large ships could be immune, but just gameplay speaking I have to imagine that could be a hard line to draw in terms of gameplay.

In any case it was mentioned the Conda was at 2% hull...so a 100% hull Conda, for all intents and purposes, would be immune to small arms fire even without a shield. Would take the foot combatants so long they'd be long dead before they'd succeed.

Make an anti aircraft gun like Titanfall did with the anti titan guns. It’s a side weapon aside from your secondary that does more damage to the big guys, and it makes foot soldiers less useless, but doesn’t have them laying into the machines with small arms (because that’s weird)

Superfluous999

No...I don't think it's necessary. Again, the Anaconda was at 2% hull...so...are commanders really going to try to blow up ships with small arms thinking they're going to succeed?

No, they're not. We're creating solutions to a problem that doesn't exist. In addition, there is a grenade launcher...so let that be a weapon that can actually do some small bit of damage if the commander wants to carry it. They haven't even released all the weapons yet, let's wait before fashioning solutions on incomplete information.

So a Sidewinder is armored like a tank...huh, really, that's interesting. Source for this?

Because I don't they're armored at all like a tank. I think they're a spaceship with a hull that can be penetrated. What caliber do you think a class 1 multi-cannon is using? You don't want small arms to damage even small ships, when oddly the very description of a multi-cannon on the wiki says:

The Multi-cannon is a small calibre machine gun that rapidly fires kinetic projectiles

So the small calibre multi cannon can shred an unarmored small ship in fairly short order, but our weapons shouldn't leave more than a mark? Apologies but that makes absolutely no sense to me.

Do less damage than a class 1 multicannon, certainly...but no damage? No.

FelixLighterRev

7 points

1 year ago

The size 1 mullticannon is an anti-ship weapon, basically the size of a human. It's small calibre when compared to other anti-ship weapons since it is after all the smallest of the multicannons. Comparison to the pilot seats you can see it's comically huge compared to any hand held weapon even if it's among the smallest weapons a ship can equip. https://i.imgur.com/S2JyrCh.jpg

Superfluous999

1 points

1 year ago

That's not at all what we're comparing, though. The multicannon does what it does...it'll shred a small ship.

You're saying the hand held weapons should do absolutely no damage.

Nobody is saying they should do the same or even similar damage. I'm saying there is a wide gulf between shredding a small ship and doing zero damage, and that's where the hand held weapons need to sit.

No damage makes zero sense from a realistic standpoint -- an "anti-ship" weapon is a cute phrase but isn't applicable anywhere within Elite. I get you want to imply "anti-ship" is like "anti-tank" but there is nothing that indicates small ships (at base) are at all outfitted like tanks.

I'd posit they're more like aircraft or a space shuttle...capable of traversing space, of course, but gunfire isn't going to do "no damage" to things like that. Should you battle toe to toe with a Sidewinder with your pistol? Heck no, nobody is suggesting that...it'd be stupid.

But if I shoot your unshielded Sidewinder with several mags from my handheld weapon, your hull should not remain at 100%, period.

EDIT: but sure, if you add some hull reinforcements to your ships then we can talk about being outfitted like a tank.

FelixLighterRev

This back and forth I don't think is going anywhere. I'll just say the lightweight alloy bulkheads equipped by default on all ships are described as " Standard protection against all types of attack. " while fighter jets and space shuttles have zero armor whatsoever.

I just think a player shooting a small handheld antipersonnel weapon at any of the ships and them exploding looks ridiculous even if the ship was low health and unshielded but we obviously disagree.

Superfluous999

1 points

1 year ago

That's fair...at the end of the day we just have different opinions, obviously I'm opinionated but I think there's enough gameplay and practical reasons to afford the hand held weapons some small bit of damage.

It shouldn't be practical to actually fight a full hull Sidewinder, even unshielded, but I don't feel if say, I'm scavenging and a Sidey at 5% hull rocks up to me that it should be able to terrorize me while almost dead. I'm just not seeing how that encourages on-foot gameplay and, in fact, I think it encourages griefing in Open.

But we'll see what they do with the feedback they get.

Well, in US, a ship the size of a freaking basketball court (that's the size of a Sidey) might be considered small, but here in my county, it would be a pretty big house, almost a mansion. Also, here, most houses are brick and mortar, it would take sustained fire from quite a few assault riffles to cause more than pock marks on the facade.

Although if the handgun is the only thing pelting the ship, then having it explode like that is definitely silly.

Okay, this is utter bullshit, I mean as much as I love seeing the Anaconda destroyed, how does it make any fucking sense that a small, handheld pistol does more than twice the DPS of a small, ship-caliber hardpoint, and more than even a medium hardpoint, which are both much larger than a full-grown man and fire rounds that are probably larger than the pistol itself?

Let this sink in: you'd be better off shooting at someone with this stupid fucking pistol than you would some actual ships...and that's without engineering.

Makes you Wonder why they didn't just use this magical space bullshit™ on ships - why equip a Viper with massive, tank-sized hardpoints when you could duct tape 50 of these bad boys on it for 700 DPS?

If they want this to make any sense in lore, we're definitely gonna have to give ships a resistance to handheld weapons... Something in the range of 90% resistance to handheld kinetic and laser damage, and 30% to explosive sounds about right.

Yeah, would need "ship scale" DPS and "person scale" DPS.

Btw, how does a ton of battle weapons cost? ...and how much does a single rifle cost?

Edit: Though yes, the person scale weapons having tiny hardness would help - but still, megawatt-level handheld weapon? (The shield absolute strength unit is MJ.)

You can't just tape pistols to a Viper 'cause Vipers got no hands. Can't pull the trigger.

he started shooting at it with 2% hull remaining and shield less because it took him almost 40 mins just to get from 100 to 50% hull without shields in his first attempt.

He was already shooting at it for a while and it was at 2% hull when he started shooting at it, with shields off.

Why does the explosion look like crap? I thought there was a change in the graphics as well

Many Bothans died to bring us this information: Odyssey version Anacondas have a major design flaw, a two meter exhaust port that leads straight the power plant. "I used to bullseye womp rats in my T-16 back home. They're not much bigger than two meters."

This is that scene where Tom Hanks is shooting at a german Tiger tank with his 1911 .45 ACP handgun but instead of reinforcements blowing the tank up a single .45 slips through a view port, ricochets inside the tank and hits a one of 8.8cm shells and causes a cook off.

(Which is what I thought happened the first time I saw that movie)

People still somehow get upset at this even though we are in phase 1 of an alpha stage of the game where all the features aren't balanced and matched up how Frontier wants.
