How does Ion damage work in Ascendancy
« on: February 05, 2019, 06:15:34 PM »
If the Secutor does average 136 ion damage

What percentage of that damage do shields take?
What percentage of that damage does hull take?

If the hull takes 100% of ion damage than ion cannons are as effective as turbolasers which is very important to know when comparing two ships.
For example the ISD II does 35 more turbolaser damage but 45 less ion damage then the Secutor.

I can't say for certain that it is coded this way, but it should be 100% damage to shields.  Ion Cannons shouldn't be able to damage hull at all.
People should not be afraid of their government...governments should be afraid of their people.

Miller is correct, Ion Cannons do not do hull damage at all.
I also have a YouTube channel where I talk about mod development and gaming, do tutorials, and Let's Plays. If you like the content, consider supporting it on Patreon
